In the present study bioelectricity generation from waste water was evaluated in a double chambered microbial fuel cell (MFC). Waste water and potassium permanganate solution (0.3%) was loaded in the anodic and the cathodic chamber respectively. The performance of MFC was studied with two different electrodes (aluminum and carbon as anodes and copper as cathode). Current and voltage measurements were carried out using Keithley source meter (2420) and multimeter respectively. The Voltammetric analysis was done to study the anodic oxidation rate. The resistance of the system was found to be low (0.466 Ω for the aluminum anode and 0.673 Ω carbon anode) which were deduced from the power density curves. The system showed a COD removal of 77% over a period of a week ofk operation.

Journal Article

A. Madhavan, Pandurangan Nanjan, K. Shetty, S., and Shanmugham, S., “A rapid and selective method for the quantification of naringenin in order to monitor naringinase activity”, International Journal of ChemTech Research, vol. 9, pp. 333-338, 2016.[Abstract]


Sodium acetate (NaOAc) can selectively ionize 7-OH of naringenin generating a bathochromic shift of 41nm in its UV absorbance. This principle is used in the described spectrophotometric method that can detect naringenin amidst naringin and prunin present in the incubation mixture of naringinase. The method could be adopted for real sample analysis as it remains unaffected by the presence of phenolics such as ascorbic acid, gallic acid, citric acid and cinnamic acid. © 2016, Sphinx Knowledge House.
