ZnO (Ag-N) Nanorods Films Optimized for Photocatalytic Water Purification
(Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2019)
ZnO nanorods (NRs) films, nitrogen-doped (ZnO:N), and ZnO doped with nitrogen and decorated with silver nanostructures (ZnO:N-Ag) NRs films were vertically supported on undoped and N doped ZnO seed layers by a wet chemical ...
Development of a Fuzzy Logic-Based Solar Charge Controller for Charging Lead–Acid Batteries
The design and implementation of a solar charge controller for lead–acid batteries is intended to supplement a component of the water purification module of the water treatment unit for natural disaster relief. This unit ...
Teaching software engineering to career-changers
The Graduate Programs in Software department of the University of St. Thomas provides an avenue for people to pursue software related careers without regards to their prior technical background. This flexible program offers ...
Treatment of irrigation water infested with nematodes using a solar photoreactor
(Desalination Publications, 2020)
The objective of this study was to assess the efficacy of the disinfection of irrigation water loaded with the plant-parasitic nematode Meloidogyne incognita using a solar photoreactor. The photoreactor was comprised of a ...
Glyceridic and Unsaponifiable Components of Microencapsulated Sacha Inchi (Plukenetia huayllabambana L. And Plukenetia volubilis L.) Edible Oils
(Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2019)
Sacha inchi (Plukenetia huayllabambana L. and Plukenetia volubilis L.) edible oils were microencapsulated and the lipid fraction of the microparticles was characterized. Hi-cap®, Capsule®, Arabic gum, and the binary ...
TiO2 films on CoFe2O4 nanoparticles for the photocatalytic oxidation of rhodamine B: Influence of the alcoholic solutions
In the present work, photocatalytic oxidation of Rhodamine B solutions were performed using a composite material prepared by titanium dioxide films deposited onto cobalt ferrite nanoparticles. Cobalt ferrite nanoparticles ...
Profiles of academic goals in engineering students at private universities in Peru
Motivation is a complex construct related to performance, persistence, effort and the development of strategies for academic achievement in undergraduate university students. The characteristics of the engineering student ...
Confined benzene within InOF-1: Contrasting CO2 and SO2 capture behaviours
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2020)
The confinement of small amounts of benzene in InOF-1 (Bz@InOF-1) shows a contradictory behavior in the capture of CO2 and SO2. While the capture of CO2 is increased 1.6 times, compared to the pristine material, the capture ...
Factorial design for preparing chitosan nanoparticles and its use for loading and controlled release of indole-3-acetic acid with effect on hydroponic lettuce crops
(International Society of Biocatalysis and Agricultural Biotechnology, 2020-07)
The excessive use of agrochemicals generates damage to the environment, so their controlled release from biodegradable nanoparticles represents a good solution. In this study, chitosan nanoparticles (CNPs) were prepared ...
Indole-3-carbaldehyde Semicarbazone Derivatives: Synthesis, Characterization, and Antibacterial Activities
(Hindawi Limited, 2020)
The two-dimensional NMR (in acetone-d6) spectral data revealed that the molecules 1 and 2 in solution are in the cisE isomeric form. This evidence is supported by DFT calculations at the B3LYP/6-311++G(d,p) level of theory ...
