Studies on urea treated rice milling waste and its application as animal feed

The composition of urea treated rice milling waste and its application as animal feed was studied. The proximate analysis of the urea treated rice milling waste showed that it contained 94.90% dry matter, 10.38% crude protein, 5.89% crude fibre, 0.16% ether extract, 7.47% ash, and 54.81% nitrogen-free extracts. The untreated rice milling waste contained 94.34% dry matter, 9.11% crude protein, 6.37% crude fibre, 0.18%...

Phytochemical study on the benzene:acetone extract of the leaves of Artabotrys odoratissimus

Artabotrys odoratissimus has been investigated by many workers for its constituents. The compounds so far isolated from the leaves of A. odoratissimus are Pentadecyl-7-hydroxy- dodecanote, Pentadecyltritriacontanonte, 4,5-epoxy -26-ol- dopentacontane, β-Sitosterol, Aplysterol, Nonacosanylhexaconsanoate, Pentatetraacont-19-ol, triacont-2-ol, Dotriacont-7-ene, Octacose-7-ene,...

Inhibitory action of Albizia zygia gum on mild steel corrosion in acid medium

The corrosion and inhibition behaviours of mild steel in sulphuric acid in the presence of Albizia zygia gum (AZ) have been studied using the weight loss, gasometric, Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) and thermometric techniques. The temperature studies reflect that the percentage of inhibition efficiency is decreased with rise in temperature and that indicates the mechanism of physical adsorption. The calculated...
