BACKGROUND Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is the most prevalent malignancy among males in India. While tobacco and alcohol are main aetiological factors, human papilloma virus (HPV) presence has surprisingly increased in head and neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma (HNSCC) in the past two decade but its frequency in OSCCS is still uncertain. We aim to explore(More)
 CH4 production in an alluvial soil, unamended or amended with rice straw (1% w/w), was examined under nonflooded [–1.5 MPa, –0.01 MPa and 0 MPa (saturated) and flooded (1 : 1.25 soil to water ratio)] conditions during a 40-day incubation in closed Vacutainer tubes. CH4 production was negligible at –1.5 MPa, but increased with an increase in the moisture(More)
Tropical rice paddy is considered to be one of the major anthropogenic source of atmospheric methane (CH4). In a field study spread over the dry and wet seasons of a calendar year, the CH4 emission from upland (oilseed and pulse) crops in the dry season and a succeeding lowland rice (Oryza sativa L.) crop in the wet season was compared with rice–rice(More)
Defect induced magnetic properties of CoO nanoparticles produced via mechanical ball milling have been assessed by detailed magnetic measurements. A progressive decrease in the particle size and a concomitant increase in the induced strain have been observed with the milling times. The mechanically milled nanoparticles of CoO exhibit anomalous magnetic(More)
In a greenhouse study, the effect of moisture regimes (continuously flooded, continuously nonflooded, alternately flooded) on methane efflux from an alluvial soil planted to rice was studied using the closed chamber method. Methane efflux was almost 10 times more pronounced under continuously flooded conditions than under continuously nonflooded conditions.(More)
Wide variation in CH4 flux was noticed among the ten rice cultivars grown under uniform field conditions. Cumulative CH4 flux ranged from 4.61 g m-2 to 20.25 g m-2. The rice cultivars could be ranked into three groups based on their CH4 flux potential. Rice cultivars could also be arranged based on their peak CH4 emission occurring either at vegetative,(More)
Optical limiting behaviour of suspensions of single-walled carbon nanotubes in water, ethanol and ethylene glycol is reported. Experiments with 532 nm, 15 nsec duration laser pulses show that optical limiting occurs mainly due to nonlinear scattering. The observed host liquid dependence of optical limiting in different suspensions suggests that the(More)
Nanocomposite of Co-SiO2, a soft magnetic material, with Co weight fraction x = 0.3 and 0.7 was prepared via mechanical milling. The magnetic properties of these samples, both zero-field-cooled (ZFC) and field-cooled (FC), have been measured as a function of x, milling time, and temperature. The structural assessment of the composite indicates a presence of(More)
The p-n junction photocatalyst, p-CuO/n-ZnO, was prepared via ball milling of ZnO and CuO nanoparticles in water. The structural, optical, and surface properties of the p-n junction photocatalyst p-CuO/n-ZnO were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), UV-Vis spectroscopy, and Zeta potential analyzer. The(More)
In this article, we have examined three-dimensional unsteady MHD boundary layer flow of viscous nanofluid having gyrotactic microorganisms through a stretching porous cylinder. Simultaneous effects of nonlinear thermal radiation and chemical reaction are taken into account. Moreover, the effects of velocity slip and thermal slip are also considered. The(More)
