Adsorption of naphthalene onto activated carbons derived from milk bush kernel shell and flamboyant pod

  The suitability and the performance of activated carbon produced from flamboyant pod (FB) and milk bush kernel shell (MB) for the effective removal of naphthalene from simulated wastewater was conducted to determine the influence of increasing initial concentrations (50 – 150 mg/L) on adsorption. The activated carbon obtained from milk bush kernel shell (25 – 40%, w/w) decreased with increased...

Antibacterial and antifungal activities of novel hydroxytriazenes

  In a search for new leads potent antimicrobial agents, an array of novel hydroxytriazenes i-xi were synthesized and characterized through their melting point, crystal shape, colour and elemental analysis. In vitro microbiological evaluations were carried out for all the synthesized compounds against both bacterial and fungi using the turbidimetric method. The reagent number x and xi showed...
