In the present study, extract of an agricultural waste, coconut (Cocos nucifera) shell is used to synthesize AgNPs and their antibacterial effect was investigated against selected human pathogens Staphylococcus aureus, Listeria monocytogenes, Escherichia coli, Salmonella typhimurium. The AgNPs synthesi...

Ganapathy, Veerappan AnbazhaganAbstractIn this work, phytoprotein functionalized platinum nanoparticles (PtNCs) were synthesized using the proteins from fresh green spinach leaves. Transmission electron microscopy showed that PtNCs were spherical shape with size ~ 5 nm, which self assembled into spherical platinum nanoclustures (PtNCs) with size within the range of 100 - 250 nm. The presence of elemental platinum was confirmed by EDX analysis. FTIR studies confirm that the P...

Abstract In this work, phytoprotein functionalized platinum nanoparticles (PtNCs) were synthesized using the proteins from fresh green spinach leaves. Transmission electron microscopy showed that PtNCs were spherical shape with size ∼5 nm, which self assembled into spherical platinum nanoclustures (PtNCs) with size within the range of 100-250 nm. The presence of elemental platinum was confirmed by EDX analysis. FTIR studies confirm that the PtNCs were stabilized by the protein. As prepared PtNCs inhibits the growth of the food borne pathogen, Salmonella typhi with minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of ...

Dinesh KumarAbstractDifferent concentrations (2, 4, 6, and 8 mole %) of cobalt doped cerium oxide nanoparticles (CeO2:Co NPs) were synthesized by hydrothermal method. The synthesized samples were characterized by using various techniques to understand their structural, optical and surface morphological properties. The face-centred cubic (FCC) structure of the CeO2:Co NPs was identified from the X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis. The calculated cryst...

Publication date: November 2018Source: Food Hydrocolloids, Volume 84Author(s): Ubonrat Siripatrawan, Patinya KaewklinAbstractActive packaging from nanocomposite of chitosan and nanosized titanium dioxide (TiO2) to be used as an ethylene scavenging and antimicrobial film was developed. Chitosan films containing different TiO2 concentrations (0, 0.25, 0.5, 1 and 2% w/w) were fabricated and characterized for structural, mechanical, optical and barrier properties. The scanning electron microscope images showed that TiO2 nanoparticles evenly distributed in the chitosan film matrix. However, the spontaneous agglomeration of the ...
