Account of analytical techniques employed for the determination of thermodynamics of inclusion complexation of drugs with cyclodextrins


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 R Chadha, N Kashid & A Saini

Discusses that determination of the stability constants of the inclusion complexes of cyclodextrins is important. The thermodynamic parameters are shown to give a macroscopic picture of the inclusion process.

Targeted drug delivery (site specific drug delivery)



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Archana Pandey, Satyendra Mishra, Alka Tiwari & Krishna Misra

The ‘target identification’ for any ligand (drug) has been studied which can now be achieved by identification of ‘right gene’, ‘right pathway’ and ‘right target’ and the ‘right drug’ for ‘right patient’ can be developed. Genomics information decides the target validation, which is, in fact the association between particular target and disease process.

Are bright students coming back to science? —
A study



 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Archana Gupta, Inderpal & Sukumar Mallick

The study discusses the new programmes that were started by CSIR to attract young bright students towards science. Early indication suggests a reversal in declining trend.

Automatic inspection device for HCV antibody rapid test strips for the production line



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chern-Sheng Lin, Chien-Wa Ho, Chao-Ying Wu, Luo-Hwa Miau & Lisa Lin

The paper presents an automatic inspection system for the hepatitis C virus (HCV) antibody rapid test strip, using computer vision device and new image processing algorithm. The system can provide accurate measurement data in inspection within few minutes, and quality verification for the production line of rapid test strip is found to be more convenient.

Bio-acrylic polyols for two pack polyurethane coating




 


J V Patel, S D Desai & V K Sinha

The feasibility of starch and non-edible oil in liquid polyester polyol synthesis and their modification by using acrylic and vinyl monomers is studied. Performance properties of oil and bio-acrylic polyol based polyurethane coatings are compared. It is found that acrylation of polyol improves the overall performance of the coating. Synthesized polyols and polyurethane are characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), gel permeation chromatography (GPC), and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC).

Extractive spectrophotometric determination of copper (II) and its applications in pharmaceutical samples and alloys


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



Archana R Kocharekar & N V Thakkar

A new reagent isonitrosopropiophenone thiosemicarbazone (HINPTC) is proposed for extraction and spectrophotometric determination of copper. The method is rapid, sensitive, reproducible and is applied for the determination of copper in synthetic mixtures and real samples like pharmaceuticals, aluminium alloys (Al chips and Al pins), and brass ash. It also provides a relative inexpensive alternative to more expensive instrumental method like AAS.

Effect of bis (3-triethoxy silylpropyl) tetrasulphide on the mechanical properties of flyash filled styrene butadiene rubber


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



Nabil A N Alkadasi, Bhimrao D Sarmade, U R Kapadi & D G Hundiwale

The paper reports determination and discussion on mechanical properties of SBR composites filled with flyash (treated and untreated). Properties of composites filled with treated and untreated flyash (separately) are compared. Tensile strength is improved by 20 per cent, while modulus at 100 per cent is improved by 30 per cent. Similarly, Young’s modulus is also improved by 22 per cent.

Degradation assessment of low density polythene (LDP) and polythene (PP) by an indigenous isolate of pseudomonas stutzeri


 


Anjana Sharma & Amitabh Sharma

Tensile strength, elongation, percentage extension, CFU, BOD, and turbidity of plastics are assessed to study the extent of degradation of low density polyethylene (LDP) and polypropylene (PP) using Pseudomonas stutzeri under laboratory test conditions. Throughout the investigation, both the plastic types are found to undergo qualitative and quantitative changes by bacteria but PP is found to be more biodegradable as compared to LDP.

Microprocessor based dynamic pressure neutralization system for control of fire in sealed-off area in underground coal mines



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

S K Ray, L K Bandopadhyay, N Sahay,  R P Singh, I Ahamad & B C Bhowmick

A microprocessor based automatic pressure neutralization device eliminating the need for continuous human attention is proposed. The detailed functions of the proposed device, control logic, and its flow chart are highlighted. The program logic of the proposed device is illustrated in the form of a flow chart.
