Ba-doped CdO (CdO:Ba) thin films with different concentrations of Ba (0, 1, 2 and 3 wt.%) were prepared on glass substrates by spray technique using perfume atomiser. The effect of Ba doping concentration on the structural, morphological, optical, photoluminescence and magnetic properties of the CdO films was investigated and the results obtained are presented in this work. Structural studies support the polycrystalline nature of the films. The direction of preferential growth of the CdO film along the (1 1 1) plane remain unaltered with Ba doping. Morphological studies show the presence of cauliflower-shaped structures for all the films. The optical transparency seems to be enhanced for the Ba-doped CdO films. The doped films exhibit ferromagnetic behaviour. The obtained results infer that barium, a cationic dopant ion, can enhance the optical and magnetic properties of CdO thin films. © 2017 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group

Recently, the biofabrication of metal nanoparticles has gained wide interest owing to its inherent features such as swift, simplicity, eco-friendliness, and cheaper costs. Different green-reducing agents led to the production of nanoparticles with varying toxicity on insects. In the current study, silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) were successfully synthesized using Habenaria plantaginea leaf extract. Ag nanoparticles were studied by UV–Vis spectroscopy (UV-Vis), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), atomic force microscopy (AFM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) coupled with energy-dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). H. plantaginea extract and AgNPs were tested for mosquito larvicidal activity on Anopheles stephensi, Aedes aegypti, Culex quinquefasciatus, An. subpictus, Ae. albopictus, and Cx. tritaeniorhynchus. LC50 values were 102.51, 111.99, 123.47, 123.96, 136.56, 149.42 μg/ml and 12.23, 13.38, 14.78, 14.37, 15.39, 16.89 μg/ml, respectively. Moreover, H. plantaginea aqueous extract and AgNPs were tested against the non-target species Anisops bouvieri, Diplonychus indicus, Poecilia reticulata, and Gambusia affinis obtaining LC50 values ranging from 831.82 to 36,212.67 μg/ml. Overall, this study showed the effectiveness of H. plantaginea-fabricated nanoparticles on a wide range of important mosquito vectors, highlighting their scarce toxicity on four natural enemies predating mosquito larvae and pupae. © 2017 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg

The presence of toxic heavy metals such as chromium (VI) contaminants in aqueous streams, arising from the discharge of untreated metal containing effluents into water bodies is one of the most important environmental problems. Adsorption is one of the effective techniques for chromium (VI) removal from wastewater. Batch adsorption experiments were carried to fix the adsorption dosage and also to find the optimum pH. The equilibrium data satisfied both Langmuir and Freundlich isotherm models. The experimental data were analysed using the pseudo –second order kinetic model. The thermodynamic study has showed that the metal adsorption phenomenon onto AAVNS was favourable, endothermic and spontaneous. © 2014, Journal of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Research.

A new semi organic nonlinear optical (NLO) crystal, l-valine thiourea has been synthesized and good optical quality single crystals were grown by slow evaporation technique. The growth conditions of the crystals are studied and the grown crystals are confirmed by powder X-ray diffraction studies. The grown crystal was characterized using powdered XRD, FT-IR, UV-Vis-NIR, EDX, and TG-DTA. The crystalline nature and its various planes of reflections were observed by the powder XRD. The presence of various functional groups was confirmed by FT-IR spectra. The UV-Vis-NIR spectra indicate that the crystal has very good absorption in the entire visible and near IR region spectrum suggesting the suitability of the material for NLO applications. The decomposition temperatures and mass loss have been estimated from the thermogravimetric analysis. © 2014 Akadémiai Kiadó, Budapest, Hungary.

Al-doped SnS2 (SnS2:Al) nanopowders with 0, 5, 10 and 15 wt% Al concentrations were synthesized by a simple soft chemical route. The powders are characterized by XRD, SEM, TEM, EDX, FTIR, UV–Vis-NIR and PL studies. Thermal behavior, magnetic and antifungal properties of the synthesized powder samples was studied and the results obtained are being reported in this paper. TG-DSC studies confirm that both the undoped and doped samples become well crystallized above 320 °C. XRD studies confirm that both the undoped and doped SnS2 nanopowders exhibit hexagonal crystal structure with a strong (1 0 1) preferential growth. Lattice parameters of pure SnS2 experience contraction with Al doping. EDX spectra confirm the presence of Al in the doped samples. The PL peaks at 433 and 485 nm confirmed the presence of sulfur vacancies in the synthesized samples. Ferromagnetic behavior is observed for the SnS2:Al nanopowders. Improved antifungal efficiency is observed for the doped samples. © 2017 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC

Batch adsorption behavior of Malachite green(MG) from aqueous solution by using Odina Wodier bark carbon (OWC) was investigated as a function of parameters such as initial MG concentration, adsorbent dose, pH, contact time and temperature. The freundlich and langmuir adsorption models were applied to describe the equilibrium. The thermodynamic parameters such as ΔG0, ΔH0 and ΔS 0 were calculated to know the nature of adsorption, these values indicate that the adsorption process is favourable. The pseudo-first-order, pseudosecond-order, elovich and intraparticle diffusion models were used to describe the kinetic parameters. The high correlation coefficient (γ) was found in pseudo-second-order and intraparticle diffusion models.

The induction period of various proportions of urea-thiourea mixed crystal (UTMC) in methanol and absolute alcohol has been measured experimentally by the visual observation method. It decreased from 0.1 to 0.5 UTMC and then slightly increased from 0.66 to 0.9 UTMC. The solubility of various proportions of UTMC was determined. It decreases with increase in proportions of thiourea. The induction period, which is inversely proportional to the nucleation rate, has been used to estimate the interfacial tension between the UTMC and methanol, absolute alcohol, hence the nucleation parameters like critical radius (r), number of molecules in the radius (r) and Gibbs free energy change for the formation of a critical nucleus (δG) have been calculated. The δGof UTMC in methanol was lower than absolute alcohol. The morphologies in all proportions of UTMC are completely changed. © 2015 Akadémiai Kiadó, Budapest, Hungary.
