Microwave-assisted route for the synthesis of nanomaterials has gained importance in the field of synthetic technology, because of its faster, cleaner and cost effectiveness than the other conventional and wet chemical methods for the preparation of metal sulphide nanoparticles. In the present work, synthesis of metal sulphide nanoparticles viz., PbS, CdS were carried out by microwave-assisted route without connecting any refluxing system and through the thermal decomposition of their respective metal acetate precursors employing sodium hydroxide as a fuel. The metal sulphide nanoparticles are then characterized for their size by employing X-ray diffraction(XRD) pattern. The morphology of the samples are nano globular form on the basis of scanning electron microscopy. The obtained yield percentage, grain size indicate that the nanomaterials prepared by the method adopted in the present study are important and more useful owing to the low cost of preparation.


This paper deals with sources of fluoride and methods of its spread and a survey was conducted in these Villages by a specially prepared questionnaire. This survey reveals the fact that majority of the residents of these Villages were affected by fluorosis. The primary aim of this survey was to find out the contamination of fluoride and other parameters in the samples of drinking water from different parts of these areas. Copyright © EM International.

Ground water samples collected from four villages of Radhapuram Taluk have been analysed from December 2010 to April 2011 for some water quality parameters such as fluoride, pH,EC, total hardness, total alkalinity, Chlorides and salinity. Seasonally lowest and highest values of all these parameters are recorded during summer and rainy season respectively in all the four villages. Majority of the values of the water quality parameters are found above the limit prescribed by ICMR. Copyright © EM International.


Fluoride concentration in ground water and ground water quality parameters in ground water samples from three villages of Tirunelveli District were assessed. It is found that fluoride concentration in ground water is heterogeneously distributed and more than 1 ppm, which is much above the permissible limits prescribed by ICMR. Fluoride content upto 1 ppm is considered as "safe" and fluoride beyond that limit leads to dental and skeletal fluorosis . Copyright © EM International.


The present work deals with the quality of water parameters such as pH, electrical conductivity, total hardness, calcium, magnesium, total alkalinity, chloride, salinity andfluoride in Kodumudiaru dam water. These parameters are recorded by means of collecting twenty samples of water from the dam and near by ponds connected through canal. Experimental analysis shows that concentration of fluoride in surface water is less than 1 ppm, which is the permissible limit. The other parameters are also present within the limit.

The suitability of water for drinking and irrigational purposes is studied by collecting 25 samples. Among the 25, 10 samples were collected from the ponds and 15 samples from borewells located in and around Vallioor. Samples were analysed for water quality parameters such as pH, electrical conductivity, total hardness, calcium, magnesium, total alkalinity, chloride and salinity. Copyright © EM International.

This paper deals with contamination of fluoride in groundwater and other water quality parameters in groundwater were analysed. These parameters were recorded by means of collecting 14 samples of drinking water from different parts of six villages of this region. The concentration of fluoride varies from 2.0 ppm to 5.0 ppm and it also shows the percentage of people affected by fluorosis. Copyright © EM International.

This paper deals with a comparative study of the adsorption of fluoride by using paddy husk charcoal and coconut shell charcoal. The adsorption depends upon the percentage of alkali and amount of adsorbent used in this process. © EM International Printed in India. All rights reserved.

This paper deals with the analysis of removal of fluorides from drinking water. A simple and economic method of defluoridation of drinking water is the adoption of drumstick bark and its leaves as an adsorbentThe botanical name of drumstick is Muringa odecifera. It has the high capacity of removing fluorides from the drinking water.Drumstick leaves are used as leafy vegetables in the diet of South Indians. © EM International.

Dry fruit of tamarind and its seeds has been used as an adsorbent for defluoridation of drinking water which is a simple and economic method. The botanical name of tamarind is Tamarindus indica. It has the highest capacity of removing fluoride from drinking water. © EM International.
