Facile Synthesis, X-ray structure of new Multi-Substituted Aryl Imidazole ligand, Biological Screening and DNA binding of itsCr(III), Fe(III) and Cu(II) coordination  compounds as potential antibiotic and anticancer drugs
A simple highly adjustable and effective synthesis of aryl imidazole ligand HL namely (2‐(1‐butyl‐4,5-diphenyl‐1H‐imidazol‐2‐yl)(4-bromophenol) was discussed where it was prepared by cyclo condensation of 5-Bromo-2-hydroxybenzaldehyde, benzil and Butan-1-amine. Three new Cr(III), Fe(III) and Cu(II) complexes of aryle imidazole ligand were synthesized. The multi-substituted aryl imidazole ligand (HL) and its complexes were characterized by using physicochemical and IR and electronic spectral ... Read more

Sustainable Nanocomposites for Water Treatment
Nanocomposites are now commonly employed to augment the standard polymeric membrane materials that are used in water treatment processes. In recent years, nanocomposite membranes have greatly attracted the attention of scientists for water treatment applications such as wastewater treatment, water purification, removal of microorganisms, chemical compounds, heavy metals, etc. The incorporation of different nanofillers, such as carbon nanotubes, metal nanocomposites, ...

Opinion on Nanoparticles for Cancer Remediation
Since the innovation of nanomedicine decades ago, significant advances have been made, especially with cancer as an objective. Nanoparticles in cancer remediation intends to cover different important aspects in this field including development of nanocarrier, delivery of gene, intrinsically active nanoparticles (NPs), microenvironment of tumor, toxicity, and immunology. The mostly applied biocompatible nanocarriers in clinical experiments are lipid, polymer, and ... Read more

Development of Metal Oxide Nanoparticles as Semiconductors
The physical and chemical properties of semiconductor materials change drastically when its size is reduced to nanoscale due to their large surface area or quantum size effect. Metal oxide (MOx) semiconducting nanostructures hold the potential for playing a critical role in the development of a new platform for renewable energies, including energy conversion and storage through photovoltaic effect, solar fuels, ...

DNA Interaction of Drug Molecules for Cancer Treatment
The deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is the molecule of life that controls all the chemical changes that take place in cells. It is the molecular target for many of the drugs that are used in cancer therapeutics, and is viewed as a non-specific target of cytotoxic agents. The interaction of drugs with DNA is among the most important aspects of biological ... Read more

Impact of rare earth europium (RE-Eu3+) ions substitution on microstructural, optical and magnetic properties of CoFe2−xEuxO4 nanosystems
In this study, pure cobalt ferrite (CoFe2O4) nanoparticles and europium doped CoFe2O4 (CoFe2−xEuxO4; x = 0.1, 0.2, 0.3) nanoparticles were synthesized by the precipitation and hydrothermal approach. The impact of replacing trivalent iron (Fe3+) ions by trivalent rare earth europium (RE-Eu3+) ions on the microstructure, optical and magnetic properties of the produced CoFe2O4 nanoparticles was studied. X-ray diffraction (XRD) and ... Read more

Facile Synthesis and Characterization of Novel Gd2O3/CdO Binary Mixed Oxide Nanocomposites of Highly Photocatalytic Activity for Wastewater Remediation under Solar Illumination
In this study, pure cadmium oxide (CdO) nanoparticles as well as a mixed gadolinium oxide (Gd2O3)/CdO nanocomposites with mixing contents (0% ≤ Gd2O3 content ≤ 15%) were synthesized via facile precipitation technique followed by calcined treatment. X-ray diffraction analysis illustrated that all samples have high cubic phase purity and well crystalline nature. The as-synthesized CdO nanoparticles exhibited only the expected ... Read more

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 ...
