Universitaria A. P. 70-186, C. P. 04510, Coyoacán, Ciudad de México, México Additive Manufacturing (AM) is one of several technological breakthroughs that is expected to lead the factories of the future, where conventional equipment will be transformed into smart and flexible systems, run by computers that will allow the fabrication of customized parts. Some authors have called AM the third industrial revolution, as it enables the accurate manufacture of pieces of virtually any shape in different scales, ranging from visual prototypes to specific functional end-use products at relatively short periods of time. Medical applications of AM is one of the key industries driving the innovations in the field, especially because of the possibility to fabricate products individually tailored to the patient’s specific needs. The integration of nanomaterials in the area of AM has a lot of potential and there is a growing interest in academia and industry to explore for new developments. In this section, we examine some successful uses of nanocomposites in additive manufacturing processes. Keywords: Additive Manufacturing, Nanocomposites ...

Evaluation of cassava (Manihot Esculentum) seed waste Activated carbon for kinetic study on methylene blue dye adsorption from aqueous solution

Research Article of American Journal of Chemical Research Evaluation of cassava (Manihot Esculentum) seed waste Activated carbon for kinetic study on methylene blue dye adsorption from aqueous solution Gumus R.H. Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering, Niger Delta University P.M.B 071 Wilberforce Island. Bayelsa State. Nigeria The effect of activation temperature on activated carbon was studied at 400o C, 500oC and 600oC respectively. The characterization properties showed that increased in temperature reduces yield, moisture content, ash content and volatile content but increased fixed carbon, pore volume and porosity. Batch experiment was conducted by varying the dosage of activated carbon (0.2g - 0.6g) and contact time (40 -120 min) on adsorption of methylene blue dye from aqueous solution. The experimental data was fitted to pseudo first and second order kinetics in order to verify the rate controlling mechanism. The pseudo second order model showed a better fit with the highest correlation coefficient of 0.998. The adsorption capacity q computed was found to be 6.561 mg/g and 16.129 mg/g showed deviation from the experimental value of 11.00 mg/g for the both kinetics. The equilibrated isotherm data was also fitted to Langmuir, Freundlich and Dabinin-Radushkevich. Freundlich model has the best fit with R2 = 0.914. The energy of adsorption was calculated using the Dabinin-Radushkevich model and found to be 5.89 kJ/ mol.

Thio-ligands in Monomeric Pt(Ii) Complexes – Structural Aspects

Review Article of American Journal of Chemical Research THIO-LIGANDS in MONOMERIC Pt(II) COMPLEXES – STRUCTURAL ASPECTS Milan Melník1, Peter Mikuš1 and Clive E. Holloway2 1Department of Pharmaceutical Analysis and Nuclear Pharmacy, Faculty of Pharmacy, Comenius University in Bratislava, Odbojárov 10, SK-832 32 Bratislava, Slovak Republic, 2York University, 4700 Keele st., North York M 3J 1P3, Ontario, Canada. This review includes over three hundred derivatives in which each Pt(II) atom is in a distorted square planar environment with inner coordination spheres of PtS4, PtS3X, PtS2X2, PtSX3, PtS2XY, PtSX2Y and PtSXYZ. There is a wide variety of mono-, bi- , ter- , and tetra-dentate ligands, all incorporating both homo- and hetero-dentate varieties. The most common ligands are dimethylsulphoxide and triphenylphosphine. The chelating ligands create a wide variety of metallocyclic rings, where the effects of both steric and electronic factors are observed. Examples of cis- and trans- isomerism exists in these derivatives as well as distortion isomerism, which is much more common. Ligands exerting the trans- effect in these Pt(II) complexes are stronger in the order: OL, NL < Cl < Br < I < SL < H ~ AsL  ~ PL ~ CN. Several relationships between the structural parameters were found and are discussed. The complexes crystallized in five crystal classes: hexagonal (0.4%) < tetragonal (1.5%) < orthorhombic (13.8%) < triclinic (23.7%) < monoclinic (60.7%). Keywords: thio-ligands, Pt(II) complexes, structure, trans-effect, isomers ...

Bioactivity of four plant materials against the maize weevil, Sitophilus zeamais Motschulsky

Research Article of American Journal of Chemical Research Bioactivity of four plant materials against the maize weevil, Sitophilus zeamais Motschulsky Olanike T. Alade and Olalekan J. Soyelu* Department of Crop Production and Protection, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife 220005, Osun State, Nigeria Fine powders of orange peel (Citrus sinensis), scent leaf (Ocimum gratissimum), morinda leaf (Morinda lucida) and lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) were applied against 2-day-old maize weevils, Sitophilus zeamais with a view to identifying non-chemical control agent(s) of the weevils. Growth rate, antioviposition effect, repelling efficacy and mortality due to each powder were determined. It took an average of 35.4 days for weevils to develop from egg to adult and none of the powders had adverse effect on growth rate. The powders repelled maize weevils significantly, being strongest in C. citratus. However, M. lucida did not achieve an effective antioviposition effect like the other three plants. Percent weevil mortality was higher in maize grains treated with C. citratus and M. lucida within the first one week of application but the effect remained stronger in the former beyond this period. The plant materials, especially C. citratus, showed potential for protecting maize grains against the storage pest.
