Wheat and other cereals sustain huge quantitative and qualitative losses each year all over the world due to the attack of storage pests. The damage caused by Khapra beetle is comparatively greater than other pests because of its ability to increase rapidly even under unfavourable environmental conditions. A study was therefore initiated to probe into(More)
This article reports the green fabrication of cerium oxide nanoparticles (CeO2 NPs) using Olea europaea leaf extract and their applications as effective antimicrobial agents. O. europaea leaf extract functions as a chelating agent for reduction of cerium nitrate. The resulting CeO2 NPs exhibit pure single-face cubic structure, which is examined by X-ray(More)
Breast cancer is a group of diseases with various subtypes and leads to high mortality throughout the globe. Various conventional techniques are in practice to cure breast cancer but these techniques are linked with various shortcomings. Mostly these treatments are not site directed and cause toxicity towards normal cells. In order to overcome these issues,(More)
An effective approach used for the synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) through green chemistry by using Kinnow peel extract as a reducing and capping agent is presented. Two different approaches, diluted and concentrated peel extracts, were used for the synthesis of AgNPs. Ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy exhibits characteristic absorption peaks at(More)
Citrus fruit processing industries produce a vast quantity of waste materials as peel and pulp that are not handled properly. In present study, waste generated from citrus has been used for extraction of cellulose and nanocellulose. The aggregated cellulose, derived after alkaline treatment, was acid hydrolysed; resulted in reduction of the size of(More)
The biosynthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) is substantial for its application in lots of fields. Tomato and grape fruit juices were used as a reducing and capping agents for the biosynthesis of AgNPs. Ultraviolet spectroscopic analysis offered peaks in the range of 396‒420 nm that indicate the production of AgNPs. Fourier transform infrared(More)
