Effect of ascorbic acid on blackening and sprouting of Musa spp shoot tips

        The effect of ascorbic acid (0, 5, 10, 20, 30, 40 and 150 mgl-1) on blackening and sprouting of Musa spp genotypes was investigated using shoot tip culture. Ascorbic acid did not minimize blackening, but rather markedly reduced the sprouting of cultured shoot tip explants. Ascorbic acid, genotype and genotype x ascorbic acid interactions were significant for shoot tip blackening and...

Studies on the optimization of bioelectricity production from industrial and domestic waste using immobilization of microbial cells

  A unique type of fuel cell with a potential in long-term is the bio fuel. The data obtained from the studies undertaken reflect glucose yielding the peak voltage. However, sucrose is cheap, similar to glucose in the electricity production pattern. Using glucose in anaerobic culture conditions, the microbial fuel cell produced a peak voltage of 1.35 by organisms Saccharomyces cerevisiae but different current...
