Identification of Potent Angiotensin Converting Enzyme 2 Inhibitors through Virtual Screening and Structure-Based Pharmacophore Design
Authors : C Zozimus Divya Lobo,A Syed Mohamed,C Vedhi,S.V Rajesh,V Aroulmoji,Gnanendra Shanmugam,

Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE), a metallo-peptidase is the best known important drug target in the treatment of hypertension and responds to broad range ACE inhibitors such as Captopril. Whilst, many phytochemical compounds including alkaloids and flavonoids were also reported with anti-hypertensive activity. On the other hand, ACE2 is considered as an interesting new cardio-renal disease...

Effect of Capping Agent on the Size, Morphology, Optical Properties and Measurements of Antioxidant Activity Synthesized CuO Nanoparticles by Sol-Gel Method
Authors : J Jayaprakash,G Venkatesh,C Sathish,

The uncapped and capped CuO nanoparticles were synthesized by sol–gel process. Oleylamine (OA) was used as a capping agent to control the size and morphology of the CuO nanoparticles. The obtained samples were characterized by means of UV–Visible spectroscopy (UV–Vis), Photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform-infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) and Field...

Synthesis and Fabrication of Dye Sensitized Solar Cells based on ZnO and TiO2 Nano Composites
Authors : S Ranjitha,G Rajarajan,V Aroulmoji,V Hariharan,P.M Anbarasan,

This article focuses on the importance of Dye Sensitized Solar Cells (DSSCs) which use the combination of ZnO and ZnO/TiO2 based semiconducting materials that capture a large range of photon energies in the solar spectrum. The nanoparticles ZnO/TiO2 were prepared by using simple chemical precipitation method. The materials were characterizations using powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), UV–Vis...

Synthesis, Optical, Morphological and Antioxidant Evaluation Studies on CuO Nanocrystals using TEABr as Capping Agent by Sol-Gel Technique
Authors : J Jayaprakash,A Sadham Hussain ,R Balaji,

The uncapped and capped CuO nanocrystals were synthesized by sol–gel method. Tetra Ethyl Ammonium Bromide (TEABr) used as a capping agent to control the size and morphology of the CuO nanocrystals. Control the nanostructure and optical properties of CuO nanocrystals are premeditated by using capping agent. The obtained samples were characterized by means of UV-Visible spectroscopy (UV-Vis),...

Fuzzy Transportation Problem of Symmetric Trapezoidal with α-Cut and Ranking Technique
Authors : M Premkumar,M Kokila,

A new method is proposed for solving fuzzy transportation problem, using symmetric trapezoidal number fuzzy with α-cut and ranking technique by assuming that a decision maker is uncertain about the precise values of the transportation cost, availability and demand of the product. In the proposed method, transportation cost, availability and demand of the product are represented by generalized...

Hypothesis Testing for Current Consumption in a Household Electric Meter using Statistical Software
Authors : U Mohamed Faizal,

In this article a hypothesis test is performed for current consumption (KWh) in a household electricity meter for one year (365 days). Initially in the hypothesis testing, the population to be surveyed is obtained from the sample size calculation (n). Then the data is collected according to this population. Now the collected data are to be statistically test to the likelihood of obtaining sample...

Novel application of rifampicin drug in textile processing
Authors : Usha Sayed,Ashutosh Ramaswamy,Priyanka Biswas,

The chemical structure of rifampicin contains phenolic group and piperazine moiety which gives it red-orange color. Rifampicin is active against many gram positive and gram negative bacteria. The tertiary amine group present in the compound enhances its solubility in the acidic medium. The present paper depicts a novel approach for rifampicin to explore as a dye for coloration of...
