Publication date: Available online 14 December 2018Source: Microbial PathogenesisAuthor(s): Sengan Megarajan, Siva Bala Subramaniyan, Sukanya Arul Prakash, Ravikanth Kamlekar, Veerappan AnbazhaganAbstractIn this paper, the self assembling properties of taurolipids were used to prepare stable copper nanoparticles (CuNPs), and demonstrated the ability of CuNPs to eradicate the biofilms formed by waterborne pathogens. The synthesized CuNPs display wine red color and exhibited surface plasmon resonance with a maximum at 590 nm. Transmission electron microscopy showed that the CuNPs are well-dispersed with spherical morpholog...

Kovalyo, P. PetkovAbstractCrystalline thin films of Bi-Te-Se were deposited onto well cleaned glass substrates (BK7 type) by the vacuum thermal evaporation technique at a pressure of 10-3 Pa. Bulk samples were used as targets to evaporate the corresponding films. The internal microstructure of bulk samples and films were characterized by x-ray diffraction (XRD). Identifications of the microstructure and the surface morphology of the ...

The proximate chemical composition of PPF was firstly determined. The PPF based films were characterized by Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy (SEM), together w...

Karim, Fazilah AriffinAbstractFabrication of fish gelatin nanofilms was realized by electrospinning using low concentrations of acetic acid, malic acid and citric acid in water as binary, ternary and quaternary solvents. The study aims to explore more benign solvent for manufacturing electrospun nanofilms for food packaging application. Spinning dope properties, such as electrical conductivity, pH, surface tension, zeta potential, circular dichroism, and viscosity were measured to a...

Publication date: March 2019Source: Results in Physics, Volume 12Author(s): Omayma A. Elkady, Shimaa A. Abolkassem, Ayman H. Elsayed, Walaa A. Hussein, Khalid F.A. HusseinAbstractAn Al/Ni-SiC composite was prepared. Nickel at 10 wt% along with SiC particles was used as a reinforcement for the Al matrix. Two different techniques were used for the fabrication process: coating of SiC particles with nano-nickel particles via the electroless deposition technique and mechanical mixing of Ni and SiC powders. Ni –SiC powder at 5, 10 and 15 wt% was mixed with the Al matrix for 24 h and then compacted at 840 MPa. The s...
