As per the report published by MicroMarket Monitor, the European xylene market is segmented on the basis of sub-markets, applications, and geography. In the European region, major applications of xylene include dimethyl terephthalate (DMT), isophthalic acid, phthalic anhydride, solvents, and terephthalic acid.
The extracts of Moringa oleifera leaf have been proven to have potent anti oxidant activity, prevent oxidative damage and afford significant protection against oxidative damage. This study aims to assess the effect of Moringa oleifera leaf extracts supplementation in preventing maternal oxidative DNA damage. This was a double bind, randomized control trial study, which conducted in Gowa District, South Sulawesi Province, Indonesia, from January to December 2012. Seventy six of first trimester pregnant women enrolled in this study. They were randomized equally to the intervention and control group. Intervention group received Moringa oleifera leaf extracts with iron folic acid capsules, while the control group received only iron folic acid capsules for three months. Before and after intervention, blood samples were extracted for measuring 8-hydroxy-2’ - deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) using enzyme-linked immune sorbent assay (ELISA). The effect of intervention was analyzed
Simple and environment friendly Pd-containing poly (vinyl alcohol) PVA catalysts were prepared by casting from their aqueous solutions. A series of PVA containing different ratios of Pd was characterized by IR, electronic spectroscopy, thermal analysis, XRD, Field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The binding of Pd to the polymer matrix and its effect on the polymer structure was studied by means of XRD, XPS and thermal analysis. The catalytic activity of the Pd-based catalysts towards the oxidation of polyphenol trihydroxy benzene was investigated and showed a significant catalytic activity in case of the polymer sample containing the lowest Pd concentration (A1). The oxidation mechanism was proposed. Kojic acid was used to inhibit the oxidation reaction and it has been observed to be a non competitive inhibitor
Tin slag a waste product of tin smelting contains many important metals such as niobium, tantalum, manganese, iron, aluminum, titanium, etc. Niobium metal which is one of the important metals found in tin slag has successfully been extracted using leaching and electrothermal method. The tin slag was crushed and ground to very fine particle sizes of nanometer level using laboratory ball mill, piston and mortar. The particles were sieved and 150nm and 180nm particle sizes range were used for this experiment. The samples were subjected to two leaching processes using hydrochloric acid and sodium hydroxide. The residues from the leaching processes were subjected to carbonchlorination at 300oC to produce Niobium oxide. The purity of Niobium metal extracted was calculated to up to 95% which means that tin slag from Nigerian Tin Smelting Company is a good source of high quality Niobium metal.
Genetic improvement to produce seedless watermelon offers high quality fruits. This paper describes about problems related with tetraploid seed germination, various seed treatment to improve tetraploid seed germination and the morphological variations observed between the tetraploid and diploid seeds. Diploid watermelon seeds of three genetic backgrounds were treated with colchicine (0.2, 0.3 and 0.4%) and PEG (0.5%) as an adjuvent. Polyploid watermelon seeds have poor germination and low seedling vigor mainly due to thick seed coat and seed coat adherence to emerged cotyledons. In order to enhance the germination, the tetraploid seeds were subjected to five different seed treatments i.e; acid scarification, GA3 treatment, humidification, mechanical scarification and water soaking for 48hrs. Among the various treatments tested, maximum germination was recorded in the seeds subjected to water soaking for 48 hrs in all the three varieties.
Diagnosis of extrapulmonary tuberculosis (EPTB) is difficult owing to low number of bacilli in the specimens, lack of adequate sample and non-uniform distribution of bacteria in tissues. The aim of this study was to investigate the utility of acid-fast bacilli (AFB) staining in biopsy specimens with typical granulomatous inflammation in patients with extrapulmonary tuberculosis and some related predictors.This study included 226 tissue biopsies of patients with EPTB showing typical granulomatous inflammation. Ziehl-Neelsen staining was performed for acid fast bacilli on paraffin embedded sections of tissue blocks. The most common site of involvement was pleura followed by vertebral and lymph nodes. Past history of pulmonary tuberculosis was positive in 46% of patients. The overall AFB positivity in specimens was 26.1%. The most positivity was in pleural TB (35.2%) and the least was in bone and joints TB (4.8%).
The majority of females tv show durable worry about enjoying a healthier pores and skin. The reason being that as men and women age groups, their dermis gets to be more wrinkled and classic looking out. As well as aging, lack of fluids is yet another top rated basis for facial lines. Using this, folks have been doing a fervent lookup relating to the most reliable class program which enables you to save their youthfulness.
Nowadays typical starter cultures are very expensive and because of this reason people tend to use a small amount of curd from a previous batch as the starter culture. But doing this continuously causes quality reduction of curds. When consecutive curds are used as starter cultures, wild cultures can be prominent because of dilution of Lactic Acid Bacterialconcentration
The functioning of calcium lignosulfonate (CLS) as the potential inhibitor in the corrosion of mild steel in 0.5 M H2SO4 medium has been studied. The various parameters in connection with the corrosion behaviour of the metal and the inhibitive action of CLS were obtained by weight loss, potentiodynamic polarisation, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and scanning electron microscopy(SEM) methods. The effect of temperature on the mild steel surface has been reported. The results of the present investigation show that CLS acts as a good inhibitor and it is of mixed type. The mode of action is by the process of adsorption at anodic and cathodic sites. The scanning electron microscopic studies gives the picture of surface morpholog
