The vibrational energy levels of C 20isomers are calculated considering the local Hamiltonian of Morse potential using the U(2) Lie algebra. Here each bond of the molecule is replaced by a corresponding Lie algebra. Finally the local Hamiltonian is constructed considering the interacting Casimir and Majorana invariant operators. By constructing the Hamiltonian, we calculate the local mode vibrational energy levels of C 20 isomers and thus compare the accuracy of algebraic model with PM3 model. © 2013 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

In this study, I report a successful application of the U(4) algebraic model in the vibrational spectral analysis of the isotopic species of nitrosyl halides. With a detailed spectral analysis, it has been shown in this study that all the isotopic species of NOF, NOCl, NOBr and NOI can be approximated very well using the U(4) algebraic model in its strict local limit. © 2016 Elsevier B.V.

The current study reports the development of bigels using sorbitan monostearate-sesame oil organogel and carbopol 934 hydrogel. The microstructures and physicochemical properties were investigated by microscopy, viscosity measurement, mechanical analysis and differential scanning calorimetry analysis. Fluorescence microscopy confirmed the formation of oil-in-water type of emulsion gel. There was an increase in the strength of the bigels as the proportion of the organogel was increased in the bigels. The developed bigels showed shear-thinning flow behavior. The stress relaxation study suggested viscoelastic nature of the bigels. The developed bigels were biocompatible. Metronidazole, drug of choice for the treatment of bacterial vaginosis, loaded bigels showed diffusion-mediated drug release. The drug loaded gels showed good antimicrobial efficiency against Escherichia coli. In gist, the developed bigels may be used as delivery vehicles for the vaginal delivery of the drugs. © 2014 Published by Elsevier B.V.

The compounds 5-pentyl-2-(4′-cyanophenyl) pyrimidine [CM 7035] and 4-n-butyl-4'-ethoxytolan [PTP4O2] and mixtures of different mole fractions of them show nematic phase with supercooling effect. From the phase diagram the equimolar mixture is found to be the eutectic mixture. Temperature variation of the density and refractive indices (no,ne) of the pure compounds and their eutectic mixture have been reported here. The density and birefringence values of the eutectic mixture are found to be less than that of pure compounds. However the average refractive index values of eutectic mixture almost coincide with those of CM 7035 which are much less than those of PTP4O2. The refractive indices and density values have been analyzed to obtain the orientational order parameters. Experimental order parameter values of the pure compounds and the eutectic mixture are compared with theoretical Maier-Saupe values. The possible reasons for disagreement between theoretical and experimental values for the pure compounds are discussed. The agreement between theoretical and experimental order parameters are fairly good for the eutectic mixture.

Thin films of zinc oxide (ZnO) were deposited on cleaned glass substrates by chemical spray pyrolysis technique using Zn(CH3COO)2 as precursor solution. Also, aluminium-doped thin films of ZnO were prepared by using AlCl3 as doping solution for aluminium. The dopant concentration [Al/Zn atomic percentage (at%)] was varied from 0 to 1.5 at% in thin films of ZnO prepared in different depositions. Structural characterization of the deposited films was performed with X-ray diffraction (XRD) studies. It confirmed that all the films were of zinc oxide having polycrystalline nature and possessing typical hexagonal wurtzite structure with crystallite size varying between 100.7 and 268.6 nm. The films exhibited changes in relative intensities and crystallite size with changes in the doping concentration of Al. The electrical studies established that 1 at% of Aldoping was the optimum for enhancing electrical conduction in ZnO thin films and beyond that the distortion caused in the lattice lowered the conductivity. The films also exhibited distinct changes in their optical properties at different doping concentrations, including a blue shift and slight widening of bandgap with increasing Al dopant concentration. © Indian Academy of Sciences.
