    ABSTRACT: The results of comprehensive field experiment revealed that the application of Zn @ 2.5, 5, 10 and 20 kg ha-1 significantly increased DTPA-extractable Zn, WS-Zn, EX-Zn, CMPLX-Zn, ORG bound-Zn, CRAMOX bound-Zn, CRYOX bound-Zn and total-Zn at 0, 15, 30, 60, 90 and 120 DAS as compared to control. However, the DTPA-extractable Zn, WS-Zn, EX-Zn, CMPLX-Zn, ORG bound-Zn, CRAMOX bound-Zn, CRYOX bound-Zn and total-Zn reduced with ascending days after sowing (0 to 120 DAS). The maximum residual-Zn was observed with the application of 1.25 kg Zn ha-1 at 15, 30, 60, 90 and 120 DAS. Further, it was revealed that the fractions contributing directly and positively to total-Zn are WS-Zn, EX-Zn, CMPLX-Zn, ORG bound-Zn, CRAMOX bound-Zn, CRYOX bound-Zn and residual- Zn and indicate the influence of these fractions on availability of Zn in soil under field condition. The per cent contribution of all the fractions to total-Zn decreased with the increasing days after sowing (0 to 120 days) while the contribution of residual-Zn was maximum and increased with ascending days after sowing.

    ABSTRACT: In this work we report design and fabrication of theophylline loaded magnetic iron oxide nanostructure by adding appropriate amount of aqueous solution of theophylline in a dispersed solution of Fe3O4@SiO2@APTS @PEG conjugate dispersed solution of Fe3O4@SiO2@APTS @PEG conjugate prepared by microemulsion technique using water in n-hexane as water in oil phase. Hexadecyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) and n-butanol were used as surfactant and cosurfactant. Surface modification was carried out in pot using tetraethoxysilane (TESO), N-aminopropyltrimethoxy-silane (APTS) and polyethelenglycol (PEG). Characterization of the samples was carried out using X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), Scanning electron microscopy, X-ray energy dispersive techniques (SEM-EDX) and vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) at room temperature. The loading of theophylline on nanostructured Fe3O4@SiO2@APTS @PEG conjugated with fast response to applied magnetic fields, zero remanence and coercivity properties was confirmed by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) and measured by UV spectroscopy.

    ABSTRACT: In order to investigate the effect of halopriming and hydropriming on seed germination and growth characteristics in Zea mays L. cv. Ganga Safed-2 genotype under salt stress, a study was conducted as factorial experiment based on the completely randomized design with eight replications. Halopriming by 50, 100, 150, 200 and 300mM NaCl solution and hydropriming by 1/4th Hoagland solution was carried out at five levels of salinity 50, 100, 150, 200 and 300mM NaCl. The results showed that priming treatment under non saline condition is highly effective. Germination, seed vigor index, seedling length, root length/shoot length ratio and fresh weight were significantly improved in response to priming at all salinity levels. Overall hydropriming treatment was comparatively superior than the halopriming. Germination index was also enhanced by priming seeds with 1/4th Hoagland solution suggesting that hydropriming is a simple low cost and environmentally friendly technique for improving seed and seedling vigor of maize.

    ABSTRACT: Nowadays eco-friendly green synthetic methodologies are in great demand. A series of new Schiff's base derivative of thiocarbonohydrazide were synthesized by condensation of thiocarbonohydrazide with different substituted aromatic aldehydes and ketone under microwave irradiation without catalyst and under solvent free condition as a green chemistry approach. Within few minutes, reaction proceed selectively giving high yields of the products. The structures of these products were confirmed by spectral analysis.

    ABSTRACT: Diclofenac (DCF) is a pharmaceutical residue of therapeutic class of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory. It is often detected in the wastewater treatment plants (influent and effluent) and surface waters. This review focuses on its biodegradation with activated sludge (CAS) or bioreactor membrane (MBR). Microorganisms play a key role in this biodegradation. A lot of factors can affect the efficiency of this biodegradation depending upon sludge retention time (SRT), temperature, pH, redox conditions and sludge characteristics. The performance of biodegradation is inspected using biological process technology by activated sludge and membrane bioreactor.

    ABSTRACT: Indicators change the colour of solution with change in pH by adding acid or alkali. The present work acid base titration has been performed by using Natural indicator. The aqueous extract of Butea monosperma flower bracts was used as a Natural indicator. A comparative study of Butea monosperma flower bracts extract as a natural indicator, with synthetic indicator viz. Phenolphthalein, Methyl orange and Phenol red was carried out to evaluate the accuracy of Butea monosperma bract as an acid-base indicator. Butea monosperma commonly known as "Flame of the forest" is belonging to family Fabaceae. The natural indicator is prepared from the aqueous extract of Butea monosperma. Two acids (HCl, CH3COOH) and two bases (NaOH, NH4OH) were selected for acid base titration. 1N, 0,1N and 0.5N strength of these acids and bases were prepared. The equivalence points obtained by the floral extract coincide with the equivalence points obtained by synthetic indicators. Therefore, use of aqueous extract of flower as an indicator is more economical and having the greater accuracy of results as that given by synthetic indicator.

    ABSTRACT: Distillery industries generate large volume of spent wash containing high Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) along with melanoidin. Discharge of these compounds causes toxic effects on living system; it should be treated before disposal into water bodies. Various technologies have been put into practice and novel bioremediation approaches for treatment of distillery spent wash are being worked out. In this research work we have used bacterial strains consortium (Bacillus subtilis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa) for treatment of distillery effluent and optimized the treatment process variable. Process variables such as Incubation time, pH, Inoculum level and Incubation temperature were selected as operation variables and removal efficiency of chemical oxygen demand (COD) and color was considered as response variable for optimization using response surface methodology.
