Objective: To develop in vitro callus induction in nodal segments of Decalepis hamiltonii and investigate the antioxidant potential of the callus. Methods: In this study, nodal segments of Decalepis were cultured on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium supplimented with various concentration of 2,4-D for callus induction and later subcultured on various concentration of NAA and BAP. The antioxidant activity of tuberous root and callus were investigated along with the quantification of phenolics and flavonoid contents. The ability of scavenging activity of methanolic extract using DPPH, FRAP assays and total antioxidant activity using Phosphomolybdenum assay were carried out. Results: Callus was induced on MS medium supplemented with various concentration and combination of auxins and cytokinins. Callus formation was best on media suplemented with 2mg / L 2,4-D. However the callus formation was slow on different combinations of NAA and BAP. The total phenolic content in tuberous root and callus was 100.7 ± 13.24 μg (GAE) / mg and 18.86 ± 0.1485 μg (GAE) / mg respectively. The total flavonoids were 180.5±63.36 μg (QE) / mg and 130.6 ± 3.571 μg (QE) / mg of extract respectively. The experiments further revealed that Decalepis callus had FRAP values of 17.25 ± 0.04738 μmol of AAEs/mg extract and for root 110.4±7.397 μmol of AAEs / mg. The total antioxidant capacity of root extracts showed higher degree (194.6+41.74 μg AAE /mg extract) of antioxidant capacity than the callus extract (119.3+10.55 μg AAE / mg extract). The IC50 values of the DPPH radical scavenging property of callus and root extract were in the range of 148±4.39 μg/ml and 20±1.54 μg/ml respectively. Conclusion: This work has shown that D.hamiltoni callus extracts contained substantial amount of phenolic compounds including flavonoids exhibiting potent antioxidant activity by effectively scavenging free radicals. If appropirate stratagies are developed for enhancing the antioxidant molecules, possibilites of making plant cell factories using callus or suspension cultures can be established, which could preserve the endangered population of Decalepis hamiltonii from extinction.

SIRIUS addresses efficient water resource management in water-scarce environments. It focuses in particular on water for food production with the perspective of a sustainable agriculture in the context of integrated river-basin management, including drought management. It aims at developing innovative and new GMES service capacities for the user community of irrigation water management and sustainable food production, in accordance with the vision of bridging and integrating sustainable development and economic competitiveness. SIRIUS merges two previously separate strands of activities, those under the umbrella of GMES, related to land products and services (which address water to some extent), and those conducted under FP5/6-Environment and national programs, related to EO-assisted user-driven products and services for the water and irrigation community. As such, it will draw on existing GMES Core Services as much as possible, by integrating these products into some of the required input for the new water management services.It also makes direct use of the EO-assisted systems and services developed in the FP6 project PLEIADeS and its precursor EU or national projects, like DEMETER, IRRIMED, ERMOT, MONIDRI, AGRASER, all addressing the irrigation water and food production sectors, some of which have resulted in sustainable system implementation since 2005. SIRIUS addresses users (water managers and food producers) at scales ranging from farm, over irrigation scheme or aquifer, to river-basins. It will provide them with maps of irrigation water requirements, crop water consumption and a range of further products for sustainable irrigation water use and management under conditions of water scarcity and drought, integrated in leading-edge participatory spatial online Decision-support systems. The SIRIUS service concept considers the economic, environmental, technical, social, and political dimensions in an integrated way.

Vellaboyina has deep experience in technology, as well as experience in investment banking, private equity, and venture capital in the United States and India; he studied computer science at Bangalore University. Srivastava is a serial entrepreneur with a history of building successful global companies in industries ranging from electronics, education, e-commerce, and construction; he holds dual degrees from IIT-Bombay. David Back co-founded the first company in India to offer “self-drive” car rental, with no chauffeur. Zoomcar launched in Bangalore exactly 4 years ago yesterday, on February 14, 2013. When David left India almost 3 years later, Zoom had grown from 7 cars to almost 1,500 vehicles in 6 cities. It continues to expand; and now has about 2,500 vehicles in 17 Indian cities. Zoom has retained a dominant position, continuously controlling 70-80% of the legally-operating self-drive car rental market in India. It recently added a peer-to-peer “Airbnb for cars” similar to Turo or Getaround in the US. Zoom is a world-leader in car rental technology: Zoomcar’s app on the Android Playstore has more downloads and reviews, and a higher rating than the global apps for Hertz, Avis, Enterprise, Zipcar, Budget, Dollar, Thrifty, Turo, Getaround, and Myles (India's distant-2nd biggest car rental company) combined. Zoom’s customers have taken almost 1 million trips, and driven a total of about 150 million kilometers – enough to drive every paved road in India about 45 times, or enough to drive to the Moon and back about 200 times. Zoomcar's investors include Ford Motor Company, Sequoia Capital, Nokia Growth Partners, FundersClub, Empire Angels, Former Infosys CFO Mohandas Pai, British politician and businesswoman Lady Barbara Judge, Former US Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers, as well as professors at Wharton, Harvard Law School, and Cambridge University's Judge School of Business. David has worked as a consultant at McKinsey, as an investment manager at Goldman Sachs, and as a research analyst at the Kauffman Foundation. He is currently an Expert Advisor with AlphaSights, and a Senior Sector Advisor for one of Zoomcar’s early investors, Athene Capital. Back sits on the board of advisors of several start-ups, including AptAmigo in Chicago and Impact Guru in Mumbai. David speaks about entrepreneurship, globalization, and doing business in India with the London Speakers Bureau. Ashwin Srivastava said, “Very few people have as deep understanding of the startup ecosystem of India plus Silicon Valley. David has been one of the pioneers behind bringing the current Indian startup scene to the global map, and we are sure our association with him will help set new precedents in the Indian and global venture capital industry.” Idein Ventures has invested in a number of start-ups in India and the UAE. These include: Infurnia, a Bangalore-based start-up which enables consumers to visualize their furniture in augmented-reality before making a purchase; Qriyo, a Jaipur-based company that provides home tutors in fields as diverse as cooking, yoga, chess, karate, and CBSE/ICSE; and ZoEasy, a UAE-based venture matching immigrant workers with safe and secure jobs, while helping employers and employees navigate laws and regulations. Idein has support from royal families and large investment houses in the Gulf States. David Back commented, “There is tremendous opportunity in Indian start-ups right now. Idein has a strong mandate to increase its venture capital presence in India and the UAE; and Idein’s backers provide a network to help its ventures become global enterprises. It is also indispensible to have talented and experienced individuals on the ground in India, and Idein definitely has that in Ashwin, Mahesh, and their team. My goal in mentoring the start-ups is to help them avoid the many mistakes I made as an entrepreneur.” David will provide advice to Idein and to its portfolio companies on: strategy, growth, hiring/compensation, legal structure, customer acquisition, monetization approach, fundraising, and other matters.

Titanium dioxide photocatalyst has witnessed considerable interest for use in water and air cleanup owing to its fascinating properties like non-toxicity, ease of preparation, favorable band edge positions, water insolubility, multifaceted electronic properties, surface acid-base properties, and super hydrophilicity. Although it possesses much functionality, large bandgap and massive charge carrier recombination limits its wide utility under natural solar light. These drawbacks were overcome through nitrogen doping in titania matrix (N-TiO2), which alters the surface-bulk structure for visible light absorption with high quantum efficiency. In this review, we highlight the recent progress of N-TiO2 towards pollutant degradation, hydrogen evolution and its use in organic synthesis under ambient conditions. The preparation of N-TiO2via different methods (physical and chemical methods) with diverse morphologies, nature of chemical dopants, induced defects and fundamental reaction parameters governing efficient photoinduced reactions are explored in this review. Further improvements in the photoefficiency of N-TiO2 were achieved through co-doping with foreign ions, heterostructuring with other semiconductors, metal deposition and the tuning of N-TiO2 with reactive exposed facets. The resultant improvement from each of the modification is discussed in the light of charge carrier generation-separation-transfer-recombination dynamics together with pollutant adsorption and their reactions with reactive oxygenated species in the liquid or gaseous regime. This review attempts to give an overview of the research highlights concerned with N-TiO2. Although it is impossible to cover all of the research articles in the literature, several milestones in the pathway towards highly applicable N-TiO2 are explored. It is hoped that this review article will trigger further research in synthesizing N-TiO2 with multifunctional features to enhance its capacity for green energy applications. © 2014 the Partner Organisations.

The multifunctional and advanced semiconductor titania with superior physicochemical and opto-electronic properties is extensively investigated in wastewater purification mainly due to its non-toxicity, favorable band edge positions, water insolubility, multifaceted electronic properties, surface acid-base properties, super hydrophilicity and so on. However, large band gap and massive photogenerated charge carrier recombination hinders its wide application under natural solar light. Thus, altering the surface-bulk structure of titania is a major goal in the area of both materials and environmental chemistry for its better applications. The substitution of p block elements (B, C, N, F, S, P, and I) either at Ti4+ and O2- sites is a promising approach to overcome the aforementioned drawbacks. This review focuses on the photocatalytic activity of non metal doped titania for a wide variety of pollutants degradation under UV/visible light, with special emphasis on nitrogen doped TiO2. Further improvement in photoactivity of N-TiO2 is achieved via depositing with noble metals, co-doping with foreign ions, sensitization, surface modifications and heterostructuring with other semiconductors. The mechanism governing the photocatalytic reactions is discussed in the light of charge carrier generation-separation-transfer-recombination dynamics together with pollutant adsorption and their reactions with reactive oxygenated species in liquid or gaseous regime. We are positive that this review article will further stimulate our research interest on this intriguing hot topic. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.
