    ABSTRACT: Silver doped graphite multilayer films were grown on silicon substrate by employing a modified pulsed laser ablation (PLA) process. Excimer laser (λ=248nm) was used for the deposition of these films. The effects of Ag incorporation on the micro structure as well as on surface morphologies were investigated using Raman Spectroscopy, XRD and AFM. The structural investigation reveals that diamond phase reduces gradually by the incorporation of silver content. It was also observed that Ag doping enhanced the sp2 fraction in films which is a clear indication of graphitization. The surface analysis revealed that some clustering was observed on the surface which is due to encapsulation of silver nano particles within carbon network. Some elevated textures were also found on surface. A small change in surface roughness was also observed which is ranging from 2.41 nm to 10.1 nm. The optical band gap (Eg) has been reduced exponentially from 2.11 eV to 1.55 eV. Electrical measurement illustrated that the resistivity also decrease exponentially with an increase in Ag content.

    ABSTRACT: Various nanostructures of zinc oxide (ZnO) were prepared on bare and functioned silicon substrates by developed thermal evaporation method. The nanostructures have been controlled by the functionalization of the substrate surface, where polished silicon was functionalized with Pt-template and Pt-film on its surface. The samples were characterized by field emission scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffarctometer, and UV-vis absorbance spectra. As a variation of the substrate surface, the ZnO product showed different surface morphologies of nanostructures. X-ray data has confirmed the purity of ZnO and the impurities of Pt in the samples deposited on functionalized substrates. The photocatalytic activity of ZnO nanostructures in a wastewater was investigated by the degradation of methylene blue. Photocatalytic activity was enhanced by using Pt functionalization, and the best photocatalytic performance was recorded for the ZnO/Ptfilm/Si sample

    ABSTRACT: Preparation of antimicrobial magnetic nanomaterials using cheap and bioactive materials as petroleum oil spill collector is the main goal of the present work. In this respect, magnetite was coated with different types of modified nonionic rosin surfactants in aqueous solution during formation magnetic nanoparticle at critical micelle concentrations of the rosin surfactants. The chemical structure of magnetic coated nanoparticles, morphology, thermal stability and crystal structure were investigated. The magnetic properties of the iron oxide nanoparticles were measured using VCM. The ability of the prepared magnetic nanoparticles powders to collected crude oil at the water surfaces were evaluated at different concentrations of nanomaterials. The antimicrobial activity against positive and negative grams bacterial strains was determined in the suspension. The prepared materials achieved good results approximately 95 % of oil collection at low concentration under magnetic field which was not reported elsewhere.

    ABSTRACT: This work demonstrates chemical co-precipitation route to synthesize calcium oxide (CaO) nanoparticles, which were used in various biomedical applications. The resulted nanoparticles were fully characterized and then conducted in rats for biomedical responses as bio-distribution, bio-labeling and cytotoxicity. The analysis of X-ray diffraction (XRD) data showed the particle size as ~11 nm. The thermal behavior was studied using Thermo-gravimetric Analysis and Differential Scanning Calorimetry (TGA/DSC) while compositional analysis was performed by Fourier Transform Infra-Red (FTIR) spectroscopy and Energy Dispersive X-rays (EDX) coupled with Scanning Electron microscope (SEM). The obtained results confirmed the phase purity and presence of CaO nanoparticles. Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) was used as a protective shield over nanoparticles to functionalize them for biomedical assessments. Areas of necrosis, haemorrhages and degenerations were seen histopathogically in kidney, liver and brain after three months of administration of CaO nanoparticles in the order of severity. MRI could not detect any lesions after 15 minutes distal middle cerebral artery (MCA) occlusion. Immunofluorescence and Immunohistochemistry study also could not detect any neuro-inflammation.
