A comparative study for the effect of nano-sized Moringa oleifera and Delonix regia for removal heavy ions from water
The ability of natural biosorbents for removing heavy metal ionswere investigated by studying the effect of nano sized _Delonixregia _and _Moringa__ oleifera_on adsorption of Cd2+and Pb2+ions from aqueous solution. The investigated biosorbents (_Delonixregia_and _Moringa__oleifera)_ were characterized by FT-IR, SEM, TEM, XRD and EDS techniques.The influence of pH, temperature, adsorbent dosage, contact time and initial metal ion concentration on adsorption process ...

Fabrication, Spectroscopic Characterization, Calf thymus DNA Binding Investigation, Antioxidant and Anti-cancer Activities of Some Antibiotic Azomethine Cu(II), Pd(II), Zn(II) and Cr(III) Complexes
This study was conducted to prepare novel azomethine chelates of Cu(II), Pd(II), Zn(II) and Cr(III) with tri-dentate dianionic azomethine OVAP ligand 2-[(2-Hydroxy-phenylimino)-methyl]-6-methoxy-phenol. The prepared compounds were characterized with the help of elemental analyses, spectral (NMR, FT-IR, UV-vis, mass), conductivity, magnetic and thermal measurements. The spectroscopic data suggest that the parent azomethine ligand bind to the investigated metal ions through both ... Read more

Green synthesis of TiO2 nanoparticles as an efficient heterogeneous catalyst with high reusability for synthesis of 1,2-dihydroquinoline derivatives
Nano materials find wide applications due to their behavior at nano scale. TiO2 nanoparticles (TiO2 NPs) was synthesized using Neem leaf extract. This is simple, rapid, eco-friendly, cheaper and green tools for TiO2 NPs synthesis using agricultural waste at lower applied temperature. Characterization of the extracted TiO2 NPs was confirmed by XRD, SEM, EDAX, TEM, HR-TEM, SAED, and FT-IR, respectively. ... Read more

Antimicrobial and anticancer activities of cobalt (III)-hydrazone complexes: Solubilities and chemical potentials of transfer in different organic co-solvent-water mixtures
The present study focused on the measurement of the solubilities and the calculation of the chemical potentials of transfer of Co(III)-hydrazone complexes in mixtures of water and ethyl alcohol (EtOH), isopropyl alcohol (_i_-PrOH), or _tert_-butyl alcohol (_t_-BuOH) at 298 K, using the assumption that dm mq Ph4As+ = dm mq BPh4- (TATB). A comparison between the chemical potentials of transfer ... Read more

Azomethine metal chelates as an efficient catalyst for oxidation of organic compounds
Azomethine ligands and their metal chelates are flexible compounds synthesized from the condensation of an amino compound with carbonyl compounds and extensively used for industrial purposes and also show a broad range of biological efficiencies including antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, antimalarial, antiproliferative, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, anti-HIV, anthelminthic and antipyretic properties. Azomethine metal chelates show excellent catalytic activity in diversity reactions. Over the ... Read more
