Kavita Singhal; Sameena Mehtab; Bharat Bhushan Upreti; MGH Zaidi

Volume 12, Issue 2 , February 2021, Pages 1-8

Abstract
  Biochar, also known as black carbon, has been studied extensively for both agricultural and environmental benefits. Biochar has ability to improve the soil quality, to remove inorganic pollutant and to reduce CO2 emission rate. All these qualities of biochar are based on its physical and chemical properties, ...  Read More

3. Viral Evolution of Multiple Coronavirus Genomes on Genomic Index Maps

Jeffrey Zheng; Minghan Zhu

Volume 12, Issue 2 , February 2021, Pages 1-4

Abstract
  Motivation: Multiple coronavirus genomes are normally organized by genomic information in a phylogenic tree to illustrate evolutionary variations. A novel scheme is represented to arrange various coronavirus genomes by two genomic indexes as 2D maps. Results: For a genome, two unique invariants of genomic ...  Read More

S.P. Puppalwar; M.S. Mendhe; S.J. Dhoble

Volume 12, Issue 2 , February 2021, Pages 1-6

Abstract
  Tb 3+ /Sm 3+ single as well as co-doped LaMgAl11O19 (LMA) phosphors have been synthesized by a low-temperature solution combustion method. The X-ray diffraction pattern, photoluminescence properties and energy transfer (ET) processes between rare earth (RE) ions, were investigated in detail. The mechanism ...  Read More

5. Influence of Fe3O4 and CTABr on the Rate of Degradation of Methylene Blue by H2O2

Mohd Shaban Ansari; Kashif Raees; Elham S. Aazam; M. Z. A. Rafiquee

Volume 12, Issue 2 , February 2021, Pages 1-7

Abstract
  The kinetics of the oxidation of methylene blue (MB) by H2O2 in the presence of iron oxide nanoparticles has been studied. The nanoparticles of iron oxide (Fe3O4) were synthesized and characterized physico-chemical techniques. The XRD studies showed its crystalline nature. The VSM study was carried out ...  Read More

6. Effect of Sulfurization Temperature on RF Sputtered MoS2 Thin Film

V. Thiruvengadam; Braj Bhusan Singh; Palash Kumar Manna; Subhankar Bedanta

Volume 12, Issue 2 , February 2021, Pages 1-5

Abstract
  Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) is one among the transition-metal dichalcogenide (TMD) family which exhibits exotic physical properties at their mono-layer limit. We report a facile way to fabricate stoichiometric, crystalline and star shaped MoS2 film. In this work, ultra-thin MoS2 films were fabricated ...  Read More

7. Fatigue Analysis for Fe-34.5Mn-l0Al-0.76C Tidal Turbine Blades using Rainflow Algorithm

Eisa A. Almeshaiei; Ibrahim Elgarhi; Vikas Kathuria

Volume 12, Issue 2 , February 2021, Pages 1-13

Abstract
  This study investigates the effect of the environmental conditions (seawater mean thrust force and flow velocity) on a tidal turbine for different thicknesses mathematically. This had been achieved through predicting the fatigue stresses applied on the turbine for different conditions using Rainflow ...  Read More

8. Modelling for the Study of Thermoelastic Properties of Nanoparticles

Shridhar Pathak; Brijesh Kumar Pandey; Ratan Lal Jaiswal

Volume 12, Issue 2 , February 2021, Pages 1-6

Abstract
  In the present work, we have proposed a very simple model to predict the thermoelastic properties of nanosolid, nanowire and nanofilm of Selenium, Copper, Silver, Lead, Tin, Zinc and Nickel elements with the variation of temperature at their different sizes. In our study, it is observed that compression ...  Read More

Fateh Eltaboni; Farah Alfaqih; Salema Aldrasey; Amira Alhodeary; Anas Almaghrabi

Volume 12, Issue 2 , February 2021, Pages 1-6

Abstract
  Starch is a vital plant polymer used in thousands of food and non-food products. Researchers have made great efforts over the past 20 years to develop ingredients based on nature which enhance starch texture and nutritional values. Starch has many non-food applications, ranging from body care to medicinal ...  Read More
