In the present study, the ability of Hibiscus rosa-sinensis leaf extract (HLE) to act as a natural coagulant for the water treatment was tested. Synthetic turbid solutions were prepared using kaolinite, and the efficiency of HLE was examined for low and high turbid solutions. HLE was very effective in high turbid solutions than in low turbid water and follows enmeshment mechanism of destabilization. An insignificant effect of alkalinity on the performance of HLE was observed. The addition of NaCl increased the dissolution of coagulation active species and enhanced the efficiency of HLE, significantly. Hydroxyl and carboxyl groups present in HLE were the major functional groups responsible for the bonding between coagulant and kaolinite. The efficiency of alum was very high compared to that of HLE in both turbid solutions. But the optimal dosages of HLE were lesser than that of alum. Thus, HLE can be used as a coagulant aid for the effective treatment of water.

An individual's sensitivity to sunlight is traditionally assessed by the Boston or Fitzpatrick classification of skin type. The ability to tan depends, to some degree, on the melanin content of the epidermis. In the study reported here, surface corneocytes in exposed skin and unexposed skin have been assessed using a surface stripping slide mounting technique and an Optomax V image analyser, with which the percentage of corneocyte area occupied by melanin granules has been taken as the melanin content index (MCI). There was a significantly different MCI between different skin types for both exposed (P < 0.0001) and unexposed (P < 0.0001) areas using the Kruskal-Wallis one-way ANOVA test. There was also a positive significant correlation between MCI and skin types II-VI in both exposed (r = 0.95, P < 0.001) and unexposed areas (r = 0.89, P < 0.005). Image analysis also demonstrated that the number of melanin granules in surface corneocytes was significantly higher in the exposed area compared with the unexposed area, for skin types II, III, IV, V and VI. Melanin cap-like structures were also observed in exposed corneocytes and heavily pigmented skin contained larger melanin particles than fairer skin. The results indicate that an individual's skin phototype and melanin content, assessed by image analysis, have a significant correlation.
