Purpose-This study aims to focus on the keenness of students of business schools of Orissa (India) on the use of electronic resources and attempts to evaluate the level of electronic information services offered by the primary information reserves of the respective business schools with an opinion pool of sample respondents. Moreover, it intends to elicit the barriers in use of e-information with recommendations for the improvement of services and usage of e-resources. Design/methodology/approach-The paper examines the use of electronic resources by students of business schools of Orissa (India) through structured questionnaires. SPSS is used for data analysis. Findings-The study finds that students express keen interest in the use of e-journals, followed by e-books, e-newspapers, e-reports, and e-articles. Least interest is shown towards the use of electronic theses and dissertations. The study reveals that the majority of students are aware of EBSCO, and Emerald Management Xtra. However, the awareness of all other databases is not quite so encouraging. Further, it is revealed that the use of printed materials is slightly more compared to that of e-resources. Use of Web OPAC is also less than expected. Practical implications-The paper highlights the practicality of the use of electronic resources, compared to print, among the students of business schools of Orissa (India). Originality/value-The paper reveals the degree of use of electronic resources by business students and makes some useful deductions for its subsequent generalization. © 2010 Emerald Group Publishing Limited.

A study was conducted to provide practical guidance for synthetic chemists on the synthesis of oxygen-, nitrogen-, and sulfur-containing heterocyclic rings. Reaction of benz(g)indole dicarboxylate 5 with hydrazine hydrate in refluxing ethanol and a catalytic amount of pyridine chemoselectively produced only 63% of benz(g)indole monocarbohydrazide 7 instead of the expected dicarbohydrazide 6 wherein the C3carboethoxy group remained unchanged toward nucleophile hydrazine hydrate. The resistance of the heterocycles formed, starting with five- and six-membered rings. These systematic collections in the study expanded the ample possibilities to the synthetic methods accessed by the chemistry for synthesis of heterocyclic compounds and would be useful to pick the route for further research.

The formation of well-ordered nanostructures through self-assembly of diverse organic and inorganic building blocks has drawn much attention owing to their potential applications in biology and chemistry. Among all organic building blocks, peptides are one of the most promising platforms due to their biocompatibility, chemical diversity, and resemblance to proteins. Inspired by the protein assembly in biological systems, various self-assembled peptide structures have been constructed using several amino acids and sequences. This review focuses on this emerging area, the recent advances in peptide self-assembly, and formation of different nanostructures, such as tubular structures, fibers, vesicles, and spherical and rod-coil structures. While different peptide nanostructures have been discovered, potential applications are explored in drug delivery, tissue engineering, wound healing, and surfactants.

The present work deals with some machinability studies on flank wear, surface roughness, chip morphology and cutting forces in finish hard turning of AISI 4340 steel using uncoated and multilayer TiN and ZrCN coated carbide inserts at higher cutting speed range. The process has also been justified economically for its effective application in hard turning. Experimental results revealed that multilayer TiN/TiCN/Al 2O 3/TiN coated insert performed better than uncoated and TiN/TiCN/Al 2O 3/ZrCN coated carbide insert being steady growth of flank wear and surface roughness. The tool life for TiN and ZrCN coated carbide inserts was found to be approximately 19 min and 8 min at the extreme cutting conditions tested. Uncoated carbide insert used to cut hardened steel fractured prematurely. Abrasion, chipping and catastrophic failure are the principal wear mechanisms observed during machining. The turning forces (cutting force, thrust force and feed force) are observed to be lower using multilayer coated carbide insert in hard turning compared to uncoated carbide insert. From 1st and 2nd order regression model, 2nd order model explains about 98.3% and 86.3% of the variability of responses (flank wear and surface roughness) in predicting new observations compared to 1st order model and indicates the better fitting of the model with the data for multilayer TiN coated carbide insert. For ZrCN coated carbide insert, 2nd order flank wear model fits well compared to surface roughness model as observed from ANOVA study. The savings in machining costs using multilayer TiN coated insert is 93.4% compared to uncoated carbide and 40% to ZrCN coated carbide inserts respectively in hard machining taking flank wear criteria of 0.3 mm. This shows the economical feasibility of utilizing multilayer TiN coated carbide insert in finish hard turning. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Piston compression ring and cylinder liner contact contributes a significant part of friction loss in an engine. Most of this loss occurs during compression and power stroke transition (i.e., between 300 to 400 crank position). It is because of the combustion gas pressure is higher in this region to enhance ring-liner contact friction. In this paper, we developed a tribodynamic model to study the transient thermoelastohydrodynamics of ring-liner contact. It takes into account the combined solution of Reynolds equation, energy equation, and elastic deformation equation considering ring-liner conformability and rheology change. We estimate the minimum film profile, friction force, and friction power loss within a high-pressure zone of a high-performance engine. Roughness of the liner is characterized using R k parameter for better surface representation. © 2012 Springer-Verlag London Limited.
