Supplying a sufficient amount of available iron (Fe) for plant growth in hydroponic nutrient solutions is a great challenge. The chelators commonly used to supply Fe in nutrient solutions have several disadvantages and may negatively affect plant growth. In this research study we have synthesized certain Fe-amino acid chelates, including Fe-arginine(More)
Amphiphilic copolymer of folate-conjugated dextran/retinoic acid (FA/DEX-RA) was self-assembled into micelles by direct dissolution method. Magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (MNPs) coated with oleic acid (OA) were prepared by hydrothermal method and encapsulated within the micelles. Doxorubicin HCl was loaded in the magnetic micelles. The characteristics of(More)
Amino acids (AA) as metal complexing agents have the ability to form relatively stable complexes with zinc (Zn) and thereby increase its availability for plants. In this study, the complexes of Zn(II), [Zn(L–L′)2] [where L–L′ = monoanion of arginine (Arg), glycine (Gly), glutamine (Gln), histidine (His), and methionine (Met)], were synthesized and(More)
Supplying a sufficient amount of available Fe for plant growth in hydroponic nutrient solutions is a great challenge. The chelators commonly used to supply Fe in nutrient solutions have several disadvantages and may negatively affect plant growth. In this research study we have synthesized certain Iron by 1,10-phenanthroline [(Fe(phen)3)(Cl2·L4)] (L =(More)
