    ABSTRACT: Plackett-Burman design was employed to study the reaction of o-cresol with benzyl alcohol in the presence of anhydrous aluminium chloride as catalyst for screening variables. The variables chosen for the investigation were temperature, molar ratio of o-cresol to benzyl alcohol, amount of anhydrous AlCl3 catalyst (% by wt. of o-cresol), addition time (ta h), stirring time (ts h), stirring speed (rpm). Among these variables temperature, molar ratio of o-cresol to benzyl alcohol and amount of anhydrous AlCl3 were found to be important. A set of trials was planned according to a 3 factor 2-level Yates pattern experimental design with 2 replicates and the center point trial with 4 replicates. The critical response was the yield of benzyl o-cresol. Main effects as well as two- and three- factor interaction effects were statistically significant. A polynomial model was developed and the adequacy of the suggested model was checked up.Bangladesh J. Sci. Ind. Res. 50(3), 169-180, 2015

    ABSTRACT: The present study was conducted to evaluate the effects of respiratory gases on shelf life of fresh Oyster mushrooms. The complete randomize design was followed for the experiment. After sorting of collected cultivated mushrooms were packed in different polymeric packaging materials-polystyrene trays over wrapped with polyvinyl chloride (PVC) microfilm and polypropylene (PP) at refrigerated and ambient temperature condition for 12 days. Gas composition as CO2, O2, N2, concentration at 3 days intervals of the total 12 days duration also including sensorial quality were evaluated. CO2 contents were found to be increased but O2 contents was found to be reduced for both packaging materials within 3 days storage at ambient temperature. In refrigerator, oxygen content in both of trays increased sharply within 3 days of storage. Off flavor appeared strongly and started to spoil from third days after Oyster mushrooms packed in ambient temperature, which on the contrary was not detected in mushroom packed and stored until 12 days in refrigerator. Shortest storage period for a single day at ambient condition and extended period of 12 days self life was determined when mushrooms were stored in refrigerator in respect of sensorial quality in sealed polypropylene bag or in polystyrene trays.Bangladesh J.

    ABSTRACT: The electrochemical redox behavior of transition metal ion, Cu(II) at different pH in acetate buffer solution has been investigated using cyclic voltammetric method at glassy carbon electrode (GCE). Cyclic voltammograms of Cu(II) show two cathodic and an anodic peaks those remain identical at various pH. The cyclic voltammetric response of the metal ion has been observed in presence of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) such as omeprazole, pantoprazole, esomeprazole and rabeprazole at various proportions of metal ion and PPIs. The nature of cyclic voltammograms of Cu(II) has been changed dramatically in presence of the PPIs due to the strong interaction between metal ion and PPIs. Almost similar interaction was noticed for all the PPIs. However, the maximum interaction was found at 1:2 molar ratio of Cu(II) and PPIs. The result could provide deep insight into the interaction between various metal ions and the PPIs that have been taken quite regularly in human bodyBangladesh J. Sci. Ind. Res. 50(3), 219-226, 2015

    ABSTRACT: Sesame is a well known oil seed crop in arid and semiarid region of Pakistan and its productivity is affected due to sensitiveness to water logging in the root zones. The experiment was conducted at research area of Agronomic Research Station, Bahawalpur during the year 2010 and 2011. The crop was sown by three different planting techniques i.e. flat sowing with 45cm apart rows, ridge sowing with 45cm apart, bed sowing with 60/30 cm i.e. 60 cm wide beds with 30 cm furrow between the beds. The data revealed that maximum number of plants wilted in flat planting as compared to other methods of planting were taken in this experiment. It was also recorded that bed planting at 90cm apart beds gave maximum grain yield of 843 kg ha-1 followed by ridge planting (seed spreading by broadcast and with augmented furrows) with a grain yield of 811 kg ha-1. The lowest yield was obtained from conventional method of sowing which gave 349 kg ha-1 grain yield. Water logging stress in the root zone can successfully be avoided by planting sesame on beds or ridges under climatic conditions of Bahawalpur.Bangladesh J. Sci. Ind. Res. 50(3), 193-198, 2015

    ABSTRACT: Carbofuran is a kind of carbamate pesticide commonly used on major crops. The degradation of carbofuran by V (IV)/H2O2 system was investigated. The degradation system was strongly influenced by the pH, and initial concentration of VO2+. The degradation efficiency of carbofuran at the difference pH with the initial concentration of VO2+ in system was observed. An initial carbofuran concentration of 10 mg L–1 was 95% degraded within 10 min at pH 2.6 with original VO2+ concentration of 5×10–4 M. The decrease of TOC content was observed during the catalytic process and the removal percentage was obtained about 20% after 24 h. Furthermore, therefore, this process based on the catalytic reaction of VO2+ and VO2 +, and was responsible for the continuous production of hydroxyl radicals in such system. It has also proven that the degradation percentage increase when a little amount of L-ascorbic acid of 5×10–4 M was applied, the degradation increase up to 20% more at 10 min. A gas chromatography-mass spectrometry analysis showed the formation of seven products, on the basis of formation of time and its abounded, of all these intermediate products, a reaction mechanism path was submitted.Bangladesh J.

    ABSTRACT: Microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) is an important ingredient in pharmaceutical, food, cosmetic and other industries. Microcrystalline cellulose was synthesized from the alpha cellulose content of pretreated cotton, Bombax ceiba L. by hydrochloric acid hydrolysis. The prepared microcrystalline cellulose was characterized by determining some physicochemical properties such as pH, angle of response, Carr’s index, Hausner ratio, moisture content etc and compared with commercial-grade microcrystalline cellulose that is used in pharmaceutical industry as excipient. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) and FTIR data represented the structure and particle characterization of sample. Thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA) showed the thermal stability of the sample. The results showed that the yield of microcrystalline cellulose was about 85% and compared favorably with the commercial grade microcrystalline cellulose as well as conformed official specifications for microcrystalline cellulose in British Pharmacopeia. It was also found that the duration of acid hydrolysis affected the polymeric form of the processed alpha cellulose.Bangladesh J. Sci. Ind. Res. 50(3), 199-204, 2015

    ABSTRACT: Monodispersed platinum nanoparticles (Pt-NPs) with an average diameter dTEM 3.1±1.0 nm were synthesized by EtOH reduction method in the presence of an organic polymer poly (vinylpyrrolidone) (PVP) with an average molecular weight of 40,000. Using this particles as seed, size tunable Pt-NPs of dTEM 3.1±1.0 nm to 5.7±1.6 nm with sufficient monodispersity were synthesized by multiple step seeding growth. Formation of Pt-NPs was confirmed by the UV-visible absorption spectra. Transmission electron micrographs (TEM) and powder X-ray diffraction (XRD) patterns confirmed that the particles were single crystalline with fcc crystal geometry.Bangladesh J. Sci. Ind.

    ABSTRACT: Genotypic and phenotypic character associations as well as direct and indirect effects were estimated for eleven characters such as plant height, petiole length, petiole breadth, leaf area index, inflorescence length, spathe length, spathe breadth, corm length, corm breadth, corm weight and yield per plant, in giant taro (Alocasia macrorrhiza L). The results revealed that plant height, LAI, corm length, corm breadth, had positive correlation with yield per plant both at genotypic and phenotypic level. Relatively higher positive and direct effect was found through petiole length, LAI and corm length and yield per plant in genotypic level. The residual effect 0.4762 represent in genotypic level about 53 % of the variability observed for yield per plant was represented by these traits. In the phenotypic level highest and positive direct effect was observed with petiole length and yield per plant. Positive direct effect was also found on yield per plant by plant height, petiole length, inflorescence length, inflorescence number, spathe length and spathe breadth, corm length, corm breadth. The residual effect 0.4235 means that characters included in the present study explained about 58 % variability in yield per plant at phenotypic level.Bangladesh J. Sci. Ind.

    ABSTRACT: Karst areas have much higher ecological vulnerability and are easy to be contaminated with hexachlorinated benzene (HCB) which is introduced as health risk pollutants. HCB concentrations were used to understand the transport of HCB conducted in the Nanshan karst system, China. Water, sediments from the underground river and water, sediments and soil from the surface systems were collected monthly in 2011 - 2012 and HCB were analyzed. The levels of HCB were 19.9 ng L-1 in underground waters and 11.6 ng g-1 in underground sediments while 99.1 ng L-1 in surface waters and 110.5 ng g-1 in surface sediments and 2.8 ng g-1 in soils. Seasonal variations were found in concentrations of HCB both in the waters and the sediments. HCB concentrations varied from 7.8 ng L-1 in winter to 86.9 ng L-1 in spring in the groundwaters and 0.3 ng g-1 in autumn to 36.7 ng g-1 in spring in the underground sediments. HCB concentrations varied from 38.6 ng L-1 in autumn to 1019.8 ng L-1 in spring in the surface waters, 0.7 ng g-1 in autumn to 133.4 ng g-1 in spring in the surface sediments and 2.5 ng g-1 in autumn to 17.4 ng g-1 in winter in soil. The substantial seasonal variation found between underground system and surface system which indicate that the surface systems play major role for the transport and contamination of HCB in the underground river systems due to karst features.Bangladesh J.

    ABSTRACT: An experiment was carried out to investigate the efficacy of contact toxicity of different fractions of petroleum ether extract of Zinziber cassumunar Roxb. rhizome against Tribolium castaneum. Seventy-eight different fractions of petroleum ether extract were obtained from column chromatography. Elutes having the similar TLC behavior were combined in eight fractions and were named as: MN-1, MN-2, MN-3, MN-4, MN-5, MN-6, MN-7 and MN-8. Four separate fractions were collected from the MN-1 fraction by preparative thin layer chromatography. These four parts were washed with petroleum ether, chloroform, ethyl acetate and methanol. Thereafter, these were separated by small column and designated as: M1N1, M1N2, M1N3, M1N4, M2N1, M2N2, M2N3, M2N4, M3N1, M3N2, M3N3, M3N4, M4N1 and M4N2. Fractions of M1N2, M2N2, M3N2 and M4N2 were found to be the most effective against the beetle T. castaneum after 24, 48 and 72 hours. However, some fractions exhibited the moderate effect and other fractions did not work against the beetle.Bangladesh J. Sci. Ind. Res. 50(2), 143-152, 2015

    ABSTRACT: Physicochemical characteristics of raw gas condensate from Bibiyana gas field, commercial motor spirit, kerosene and diesel fuel as well as products obtained from gas condensate were determined. Experiments were carried out to take apart motor spirit, kerosene and diesel from gas condensate based on boiling ranges. The analysis revealed that collected gas condensate contains more than 50% is motor spirit (regular octane/petrol) in the boiling range of 21-1450C, 23% is kerosene in the boiling range of 140-2210C and 24-25% is diesel in the boiling range of 178-3350C. Remaining 2-3% is found as residue and system loss. The characteristics of different fractions (Motor spirit, Kerosene & Diesel) obtained from condensate are very comparable to commercial products (collected from nearby fuel pump station supplied by Meghna petroleum) and BSTI standard except two properties of petrol (octane number and sulfur content). The octane number of motor spirit is increased by adding 5% of supper octane or ethanol or MTBE.
