Research Article of International Journal of Nanoparticle Research Synthesis of Punica Granatum Fruit Peel Extract Based Silver Nanoparticles and Evaluation of it’s Antimicrobial Activity Vinay C H*, Prakash Goudanavar and Ankit Acharya Department of Pharmaceutics, Sri Adichunchanagiri College of Pharmacy, B.G. Nagara, Karnataka -571 448. The main objective of the present work was to prepare pomegranate peel extract based nano particles by chemical complexation method. Ethanolic extracts of pomegranate peel were prepared by using Soxhlet apparatus and evaluated for phyto-chemical constituents. Qualitative analysis showed that pomegranate peel extract showed positive results for alkaloids, anthraquinones, saponins and terpenoids. The percentage moisture content and pH of the extract was found to be 72% and 3.6 respectively. A zeta potential and particle size of prepared nanoparticles was found in the range of -24.6 to– 34.5 mV and 118.6 nm to 231.7 nm, respectively. These range confirms that obtained particles were in nano range, i.e. <500 nm size. SEM results indicated the formation of nanoparticles and were relatively spherical in shape. Energy dispersive spectrometry (EDS) analysis confirms the presence of AgNPs. Prepared peel extracts based nanoparticle showed promising antimicrobial and antifungal properties.

Development and Characterization of Nanoparticle Metal Matrix Composites: (Al 2024-SiC NP)

Research Article of International Journal of Nanoparticle Research Development and Characterization of Nanoparticle Metal Matrix Composites: (Al 2024-SiC NP) Muhammad Arshad Chaudhry1, Liaqat Ali2, Khalid Mahmood Ghauri2,Javed Iqbal2  1Ph.D Research Scholar, Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, University of Engineering & Technology, Lahore, Pakistan 2Professor Dr. Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering,University of Engineering & Technology, Lahore, Pakistan Composite materials get an importance in value as an advance materials such as automotive, aerospace, aircraft, defense, medical, marine, sports, recreation and various engineering applications due to their high strength-to-weight ratio, good cast ability and better tribological properties. Al-base 2024 alloy reinforced with SiC micron and nano particles were developed using stir casting technique due to low cast, ease in fabrication, recyclability and isotropic characteristics. The development of Aluminum metal matrix nano composites (AMMNCs) is most considered material for high temperature applications because of their excellent mechanical properties, increase performance and weight saving for more reduction of fuel consumption. The results indicate that Al-SiC composite has improved physical and mechanical properties such as tensile strength, charpy impact strength, brinell hardness, density and porosity percentage. Samples with micron particles and nano particles were developed to compare the properties of both. Microstructures of the samples were studied by means of X-Ray Diffraction and Scanning Electron Microscopy. The elemental composition was also analyzed through Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy. It was found that composites of Al-SiC have better and improved physical properties in nano dimensions. Keywords: Al-SiC development, stir casting, characterization of reinforced samples, optical micrograph, XRD, SEM and EDS ...

Synthesis of Biocompatible carboxylic acid functionalized Graphene Oxide as a stimulator of bacterial growth

Research Article of International Journal of Nanoparticle Research Synthesis of Biocompatible carboxylic acid functionalized Graphene Oxide as a stimulator of bacterial growth Neelima Sharma 1*, Rishi Sharma2 1Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Technology, Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra, Ranchi -835215, Jharkhand, India. 2Department of Physics, Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra, Ranchi -835215, Jharkhand,India. Researchers have shown great interest towards Graphene and its potential applications in various fields such as electronics, energy, materials and biomedical areas. The effects of Graphene, graphene oxide (GO) and its derivatives on bacteria activities is still controversial. Thus, how graphene and its derivatives interact with microorganisms and the mechanisms of their interactions are important issues for nanotechnology which need proper exploration. In the present investigation, graphene oxide (GO) has been synthesized and functionalized by the chemical method. The GO and COOH-functionalized GO have been characterized by Fourier transforms infrared spectroscopy; Raman spectroscopy and SEM analysis. Further, haemocompatibility study has been performed to check the biocompatibility of functionalized graphene oxide. The effect of GO and COOH-GO on the bacterial growth has been observed. The FTIR, Raman and SEM data confirm the successfully functionalization of GO with carboxyl (-COOH) group. The haemolysis test shows that GO and GO-COOH are highly hemocompatible. Interestingly, functionalized graphene oxide, can significantly stimulate bacterial growth for gram positive and gram negative bacteria, whereas as-made GO shows no effect. It can be concluded that carboxylic acid functionalized GO may act as a new, positive regulator for the growth of bacterial cells.

Dielectric properties of Chromium substituted Nickel nano ferrites

Research Article of International Journal of Nanoparticle Research Dielectric properties of Chromium substituted Nickel nano ferrites K. Vijaya Kumar 1*,R.Sridhar2, D.Ravinder3 *1Department of Physics, JNTUH College of Engineering Sultanpur, Sultanpur(V), Pulkal (M), Sangareddy-District, 502293, Telangana State, India. 2Department of BS&H, Vignan Institute of Technology & Science,Yadadri-Bhuvanagiri-Dist.508284, Telangana State, India. 3Department of Physics, Osmania University, Hyderabad-500007, Telangana State, India. Background The powders of Ni-Cr Nano ferrites were synthesized with the chemical formula, NiCrXFe2−XO4 (Where X = 0.1, 0.3, 0.5, 0.7, 0.9 and 1.0) by using citrate-gel auto combustion technique. The structural characterization was investigated by X-Ray Diffractomerter (XRD). X-ray analysis shows that the samples are cubic spinel structure (single phase) without any impurity peak and average crystallite size was in the range of 8.5-10.5nm. The dielectric measurements were carried out as a function of frequency and composition (X) at room temperature in the range of 20Hz-2MHz. The real part of dielectric constant (ε') and dielectric loss factor (tan δ) showed a decreasing trend with increasing field frequency. The ac conductivity (σac) is calculated from the dielectric measurements and it is increased with the increase of frequency. The composition dependent dielectric parameters are reported.
