Influence of Mineral Particle Films and Biomaterials on Guava Fruits and Implications for the Oviposition of Anastrepha obliqua (Macquart) (Diptera: Tephritidae)
The results obtained are promising and show that mineral films and biomaterials interfering with the color of guavas inhibited the oviposition of A. obliqua, and can be used to protect guava fruits from the damage caused by this pest. Expand
Mineral and natural films change the physical–chemical properties of grapes and modulate oviposition behaviour of Ceratitis capitata Wiedemann (Diptera: Tephritidae)
Results obtained in this study are promising, given the scientific evidence that films of mineral particles such as kaolin changed the firmness, luminosity, chroma and hue angle of grapes and reduced the oviposition of C. capitata. Expand
Natural polysaccharides: Types, basic structure and suitability for forming hydrogels
Abstract Hydrogels are essentially a cross-linked hydrophilic three-dimensional polymeric network able to absorb huge amount of biological fluids and water. Natural polysaccharides are endowed withExpand
Recent Trends in Advanced Polymer Materials in Agriculture Related Applications
Over the past few decades, advanced polymeric materials have gained popularity in the development of sustainable agricultural applications. Smart polymeric systems have extensively contributed to t...
Recent development on physical and biological properties of chitosan-based composite films with natural extracts: A review
Being credited with the most extensively studied polysaccharide polymer and promising candidate for versatile applications, chitosan has proved to be a standalone material with loads of diversifiedExpand
The benefits of k-Carrageenan-gelatin hybrid composite coating on the medical grade stainless steel (SS304) used as anticorrosive barrier
Abstract Biopolymers derived from seaweed are good anticorrosive, antibacterial and anticancer agents. These biopolymers family includes the k-Carrageenan with good potential anticorrosive featureExpand


Hydrogel: A novel drug delivery system
Hydrogels, by nature, are water swollen crosslinked networks of hydrophilic homopolymers or copolymers. One of the many distinct characteristics of hydrogels is their ability to change shape inExpand
Formulation And Evaluation Of Nimesulide Dispersible Tablets Using Natural Disintegrants
The study revealed that natural gums used as disintegrants were effective in low (5%) concentration and all the formulations were acceptable with the reasonable limits of standards required for dispersible tablets. Expand
Evaluation Of Synthesized Cross-linked Tragacanth As A Potential Disintegrant
Cross-linked tragacanth was prepared using epichlorhydrin. The effects of ratio of tragacanth to epichiorhydrin, temperature and time of reaction were studied. The cross-linked tragacanth wasExpand
