Dinesh Kumar Different 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 crystallit...

Silver nanoparticles (SNPs) were synthesised by using the Arial part extract of Dorema ammoniacum D. and characterised by employing UV–visible spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction techniques. Transmission electron microscopy and field emission scanning electron microscopy were applied to investigate the morphological structure of the bio-synthesised SNPs. The antimicrobial activity of SNPs was studied against Gram positive (Bacillus cereus and Staphylococcus aureus) and Gram-negative (Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhimurium) bacteria by employing the disk diffusion agar proc...

Embaby Antibacterial tellurite glass system doped with ZnO was synthesized by the melt-quenching method. The physical and structural characteristics of the glass were studied. The change in the structure was studied using the Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectra. Transmission studies were performed on the samples in the range (200–800 nm). Characteristics glass temperatures were determined by using Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) in the temperature range (200–600&...

The objective of this study was to determine the growth and survival of Salmonella enterica in the presence of high and low concentrations (375 μg/ml and 15 μg/ml) of catfish mucus extract at 10 °C and 22 °C for 63 days. The second objective of this study was to investigate the biofilm formation of Salmonella enterica serovar Blockley (7175) in catfish mucus extract for 48 h at 22 °C on four food-contact surfaces and to observe the biofilm populations using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). The surface properties, surface roughness and surface energies were determined using contact angle m...

The samples were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and mechanical properties experiments. Based on the Halsey equation, the relationship between tensile strength and relative humidity is established to predict the tensibility of the composite films under...

To enhance the washing effect, CBE (0.02% CB + 0.002% CPC) was combined with ultraviolet-C treatment (1.2 kJ/m2), and the combined treatment reduced the populations of Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella Typhimurium on FCR by 1.29 and 1.40 log CFU/g, respectively, as compared to populations after water washing. ...

(Natural News) A baby formula scandal continues to rock France to its core: the French dairy group, Lactalis, has issued a worldwide recall of its powdered milk products due to some of them being contaminated with salmonella. At least 7,000 tons of Lactalis products have been pulled from over 80 countries across Europe, Asia, and...

Radhakrishnan, Mathew Jyothis The green synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) using biological systems such as fungi has evolved to become an important area of nanobiotechnology. Herein, we report for the first time the light-induced extracellular synthesis of silver nanoparticles using algicolous endophytic fungus Penicillium polonicum ARA 10, isolated from the marine green alga Chetomorpha antennina. Parametric optimization, including...
