A convenient and rapid method for the synthesis of benzylidene-fluorene from aromatic aldehydes and fluorene in presence of 1, 8-diazobicyclo [5,4,0] undec-7-ene (DBU) as an organic catalyst at room temperature giving good yields, short reaction time and easy isolation. Fluorene based π-conjugated organic compounds have found dominant usance that bring about them deserved entrant for utilizations in organic optoelectronic devices and chemical sensors. The report high points an approach to synthesize these materials and to study the photophysical properties

The core sediment from two distinct zones of the Paravur estuary, one from the sea water influenced western region and other from the river water influenced eastern region were selected for estimating the different species of phosphorus. The concentration of different species of phosphorus along with iron, organic carbon and textural quality from different sediment depths of the above two locations were investigated. The average value of total phosphorus was found to be higher in fresh water influenced region than marine influenced region. Total phosphorus shows a strong positive correlation with organic carbon in both regions

Dr. Beena S., A Santhy, R Vidya, P Uma Sankar, and Rejithamol, R., “Clopidogrel-tetralodo mercurate ion association immobilized PVC membrane sensor for the determination of clopidogrel in pharmaceutical formulations”, in 2017 International Conference on Technological Advancements in Power and Energy (TAP Energy), Kollam, India, 2017.[Abstract]


Fabrication of the PVC membrane sensor incorporating clopidogrel-tetraido mercurate as an electro active material for the determination of clopidogrel bisulphate is demonstrated. Sensor matrix having a composition of PVC 32%, ion association 2.5% and Di-n-butyl phthalate 56.5 % showed best nernstian behavior in the concentration range 1×10 -2 -1×10 -7 M with a lower detection limit of 2.9 × 10 -8 M. Working pH range and response time was found to be 1.8-4.0 and 5s respectively. The sensor was fruitfully utilized for the quantification of clopidogrel from Clopilet tablets. Comparative studies on the various parameters that depend on the performance characteristics of the present sensor with that of the literature reports were also included.
