Corrosion Inhibition of Carbon Steel in 1M HCl Solution Using Sesbania Sesban Extract

Metallic materials are still the most widely used group of materials particularly in both mechanical engineering and the transportation industry. However the usefulness of metals and alloys is constrained by one common problem known as corrosion (Buchweishaija, 2009). Corrosion is the destructive attack of a metal by chemical or electrochemical reaction with the environment (Uhlig …

COMPARATIVE STUDY ON SOME SELECTED GARRI SAMPLES SOLD IN LAGOS METROPOLIS

Cassava (Manihot esculenta crantz) is a major food crop in Nigeria, supplying about 70% of the daily calorie of over 50million people in Nigeria (Oluwole et al., 2004). At 93 million tons, cassava accounted for the largest share of root crop consumed as food in Tropical Africa in 1996 (Scott et al., 2000). It has …

Efficacy of Tart Cherry Juice to Reduce Inflammation Biomarkers among Women with Inflammatory Osteoarthritis (OA)

Epidemiological evidence suggests that a high intake of plant foods is associated with lower risk of chronic diseases. Recently, numerous antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agents have been identified in plants purported to reduce illness and disease associated with inflammation and tissue damage. Specifically, the disease modifying agents include cyclo-oxygenase inhibitory flavonoides (Seeram, Bourquin, & Nair, 2001; …

Influence of Altitude Variation on Trigonelline Content during Ontogeny of Coffea Canephora Fruit

Coffee is a rich source of bioactive metabolites such as caffeine, trigonelline, chlorogenic acid, arabinogalactans, melanoidins along with ash, organic acids, and caffeic acid etc and their profile in beans is important and helpful to know the quality of coffee brew (Sridevi & Giridhar, 2008). Among these caffeine, CGAs and trigonelline are major compounds which …

Modeling and Optimization of Adsorption of Heavy Metal Ions onto Local Activated Carbon

Heavy metal ions such as copper, iron, nickel, lead, etc. in the environment are of major concern due to their toxicity to many life forms. Unlike organic pollutants, which are susceptible to biological degradation, metal ions do not degrade into any harmless end products (Mohammadiet al., 2010) and tend to accumulate causing several diseases and …

Zoning Model on Conservation in the Ecosystem Islands Southeast Aru

Ecosystem conservation was an effort to protect, to preserve, and to utilize the ecosystem function as the supporting habitat for the living of fish resources either for recent or future days (Adams et al, 2004). Indeed, ecosystem conservation was realized through the protection of habitat and population of the fish, the research and development, the …

Vescular Arbuscular Mycorrhiza Diversity and Morphotypes, from Different Land Use of the Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

Vesicular arbuscular mycorrhizas (VAM) are extremely successful fungi that form mutualistic symbioses with about two thirds of all plant species (Smith & Read 1997). VAM fungi are of great ecological importance since arbuscular mycorrhizae are the most widespread plant symbiosis that often improves plant productivity (Fedderman et al., 2010). The main advantage of mycorrhizae to …

A Hot-topic based Distribution and Notification of Events in Pub/Sub Mobile Brokers.

The future Internet of Things (IoT) demands a closer breach between fixed and mobile envi- ronments in the content plane; so, even if devices are loose coupled the information they produce should be available from end-to-end. In this context, the Publish/Subscribe (Pub/Sub) paradigm [1] has emerged as an attractive communication model for exchanging content be- …

Production, Proximate and Sensory Evaluation of Rhynchophorus Phoenicis (F) Larva Paste

Insects are used as human food in many parts of the world. In some developing countries, it is viewed with aversion but elsewhere, it is seen as a wise utilization of natural resources because insects form a greater part of the phylum arthropods which dominates the animal kingdom. The larva of the beetle Rhynochophorus phoenicis …
