Nanocrystalline ZnO (n-ZnO) particles are synthesized by in-situ sol-gel method, stabilized using sodium alginate (SA) polymer and impregnated into bentonite (Bt) clay matrix by one pot synthesis. Different nanocomposites of n-ZnO are prepared by alkaline hydrolysis of zinc acetate as precursor by varying the concentration of sodium hydroxide. The effect of Bt on the characteristics of n-ZnO was studied. The average particle size of n-ZnO was calculated to be 14-23 nm by XRD analysis which is matching with the TEM values. TEM images clearly showed the influence of Bt on the shape of particles in which 45SA showed ZnO nanorods due to the stabilization effect of SA. Whereas, spherical ZnO nanoparticles are exhibited by 45SA-Bt due the restriction of n-ZnO growth by the interlayers of Bt. We found that the nanocomposites exhibited excellent bacterial resistance towards both Gram negative (E. coli) and Gram positive (S. aureus) bacteria. The bacterial resistance of nanocomposites is slightly more than that of pure n-ZnO. The results of this study proved that the synthesized n-ZnO and its nanocomposites can be used for various application such as antibacterial, semiconducting etc. More »»

Quality changes in flue cured large cardamom capsules and seeds were monitored under 3 storage conditions: i) 90% RH/38° C (accelerated-humid), ii) 30-40% RH/40° C (accelerated- dry), and iii) 65% RH/27° C (normal) in different packages. The samples were analysed for moisture content, volatile oil content and flavour composition every 30 days for condition (i) upto 120 days and for conditions (ii) and (iii) every 60 days up to 240 days. Capsules packed in unlined high density polyethylene (HDPE) woven sack material, polypropylene ...
