1. Studies on Mechanical Properties and Biodegradation of Edible Food Wrapper from Banana Peel Anniyyappa Umapathi Santhoskumar, Ramu Vaishnavi, Thavasimani Karunakaran, Natarajan Jaya chitra Edible Packaging are the most useful alternative for Secondary product packaging, reduces waste, easy disposal and to create novel applications for stability, quality, safety, variety, healthy and convenience of customers. Banana Peels are more nutritional rich than the flesh. The initial sections of this report begin with the history of plastics food packaging and edible wrappers followed by the whole banana powder producing process includes the steps, to obtain whole banana peel powder. The Powder is further processed to film formation. It will be used for edible packaging application Tea pack, Biscuit pack etc.Click Here To Read More 01-04 DOWNLOAD PDF

2. Assessment of the Thermal Conductivity of Local Building Materials using Lee’s Disc and Hot Strip Devices Houngan Comlan Aristide, Fannou Jean-Louis Comlan, Gbenontin V. Bertrand, Djossou Armand,
Anjorin Malahimi, Vianou Antoine
The thermal conductivity of building materials is an important property for engineering and for the analysis of insulating materials. In this work, the thermal conductivity of Kosso and mahogany wood were determined following the device of Lee’s disk. The results were then compared with those obtained by the hot strip device. In this line, Lee’s disk device was designed and validated experimentally. According to the analysis of the data from the two wood species tested, the thermal conductivity of Kosso (measurement in the open air with a moisture content of 13%) and mahogany wood (dry) obtained by the method of Lee drive, respectively.Click Here To Read More 05-13 DOWNLOAD PDF

3. New Differential Pulse Polarographic Method for the Determination of Isoproturon Herbicide in Environmental Samples Devender Kumar Sharma, Pushap Raj, Sapana Suman The excessive use of isoproturon herbicide in agriculture can cause some serious health and environmental hazards. This necessitates the development of some simple methodologies for its determination in various environmental samples. A new differential pulse polarographic method based on the measurement of dimethylamine (formed from hydrolysis of isoproturon with potassium tert. butoxide) as dimethyldithiocarbamate complex through reaction with carbon disulphide and copper(II) perchlorate yielding an analytically useful diffusioncontrolled peak at -96 mV has been developed. The analysis has been accomplished by constructing calibration graph between peak current and concentration showing linear relationship in the range 0.21-4.13 g mL-1 of isoproturon solution.Click Here To Read More 14-19 DOWNLOAD PDF

4. Latest Overview of Proteases: A Review Vijay Kumar, Anjana, Poonam and Sapna Sharma Proteolytic enzymes are found in all kinds of organisms i.e. viruses to animals. These peptidases are included in vast group of the enzymes used in the bio industry with wide applications. They play vital part in the industrial biotechnology specifically in food, detergent and the pharmaceutical industries. Microbial proteases which are environmental friendly are interestingly used for their commercial importance. This review displays an overview on proteases chiefly from sources of micro-organisms i.e. bacteria and fungi and their common properties are also discussed briefly.Click Here To Read More 20-28 DOWNLOAD PDF

5. Cracking of Cellulose from Ignorant Source – Animal Waste-Biomass Conversion and Utilization: A Review Vishal Priya, Avichal kumar and Pankaj Sharma Waste-biomass consumption is a serious issue of concerning in developing countries. This review shows a comprehensive introduction to the biomass concept, covering the main biomass resources utilized commonly throughout the world under a category i.e. animal waste. Use as a simple illustration of potential sources of energy from biomass, including trees, agricultural crops, animal manure, the waste-biomass has been proved be fieldharvested, preprocessed and transported to bio-refineries for treatment and processing.Click Here To Read More 29-41 DOWNLOAD PDF
