Determination of the Neonicotinoid Thiacloprid in Vegetables by Using Photochemically Induced Fluorescence

The insecticide thiacloprid, one of the most frequent neonicotinoids, is measured in lettuce samples using an automated luminescence sensor described in this work. In the last decade, the application of luminescence sensors has increased, reducing reagent waste and enhancing automation. A simple and automated manifold using multicommutated solenoid valves was created to handle all solutions. […]

Measurement of Complex Formation Process of Lead (II) with Fulvic Acids at pH= 8

The goal of this study is to look into the complex formation process between pure FA samples isolated from natural waters and Pb, as well as to determine the average stability constant of the lead fulvate complex. The solubility method was used to investigate the complex formation process between Pb (II) and fulvic acids at […]

Determining the Synthesis, Chemical Modification and Biological Properties of N-acylphenothiazines

This review organised theoretical and experimental data on the many methodologies for the synthesis of N-acylphenothiazines. The goal of this study was to synthesise all of the literature published in the last 20 years around the world. This study also looked at the pharmacological effects of these heterocycles as one of the most promising chemotherapeutic […]

Assessment of Illicium Verum Mediated Preparation of Zinc Oxide Nanoparticles: An Approach to XRD, Spectral and Microscopic Analysis

Green synthesis is a popular topic among scientists. Instead of employing chemicals as a reducing agent, we use plant extract. With zinc nitrate as a precursor and Illicium verum extract as a reducing and stabilising agent, zinc oxide nanoparticles were successfully synthesised. The reducing and stabilising agents were polyphenols and flavonoids found in Star anise. […]

Development of Non-linear Mathematical Models for Mouse Cell’s Conductivity in Pulsed Electric Field

Based on approximation by algebraic and transcendental functions, non-linear mathematical models were built for the empirically observed dependences of the conductivity of mouse reproductive and embryonic cells on the strength of the pulsed electric field applied. To estimate experimental data, the least squares method was employed. Extrema, inflections, crossings, and curvature of approximating functions were […]

Possible Anti-cardiovascular Boosting Properties of Sphenostylis stenocarpa Seed Oil and Milk on Salt Loading-induced Hypertension in Rats

Legumes have been demonstrated to have high nutraceutical potential, making them a good source of nutrients that are good for human health. Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), which have been one of the leading causes of death in middle and high-income countries, can be avoided by protecting the heart from malfunctioning. In 2015, 82 percent of the […]

Safety Assessment of POLYSORB® ID a Fatty Acids-Diesters Isosorbide Used as a Plant-based Solutions for Plasticizers

Phthalate esters, principally di-ethylhexylphthalate (DEHP), are a group of compounds that are commonly employed as plasticizers for polyvinyl chloride in a variety of residential and industrial applications. These phthalate esters have a minimal toxicity in the environment. POLYSORB® ID 37, a combination of diesters derived via esterification of isosorbide with plant-based fatty acids, was created […]

Assessment of Biodegradable Blends of Poly(Vinyl Alcohol) and Chitosan for Food Industry and Biomedical Application

Due to the presence of two types of reactive primary and secondary hydroxyl groups, chitosan (CS), an amino polysaccharide, is a stiff polymer (-OH). It is also a biodegradable, biocompatible, non-toxic, safe, and antibacterial polymer, making it suitable for use in the food and biomedical industries. As a result, biodegradable films based on poly (vinyl […]

Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase 1B (PTP1B) and α-Glucosidase (3W37) Inhibitors from Tetradium ruticarpum: In vitro and In silico Study

Natural compounds found in Tetradium ruticarpum have been reported to be efficient inhibitors of diabetes-related enzymes. This study assessed the inhibitory effects of isolated compounds from T. ruticarpum on protein tyrosine phosphatase 1B (PTP1B) and -glucosidase (3W37), as well as using density functional theory and molecular docking techniques as computational methods to predict ligand stability […]

Adsorption Behavior of Acid-Leached Clays in Bleaching of Oil: A Descriptive Study

The goal of this work was to characterise the bleaching of oils by examining the type of adsorptive processes that occur during the bleaching of vegetable oils using clays. According to the existing evidence, acid-leached clays had sites for adsorption of contaminants in oils. The Langmuir and Freundlich isotherms for residual contaminants in cotton and […]
