Analytical solution of the concentration and current in the electoenzymatic processes involved in a PPO-rotating-disk-bioelectrode  [PDF]
Govindhan. Varadharajan, Lakshmanan. Rajendran
Natural Science (NS) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ns.2011.31001
Abstract: A mathematical model for electroenzymatic process of a rotating-disk-bioelectrode in which polyphenol oxidase occurs for all values of concentration of catechol substrate is presented. The model is based on system of reaction-diffusion equations containing a non-linear term related to Michaelis-Menten kinetics of the enzymatic reaction. Approximate analytical method (He’s Homotopy perturbation method) is used to solve the non-linear differential equations that describe the diffusion coupled with a Michaelis-Menten kinetics law. Closed analytical expressions for substrate concentration, product concentration and corresponding current response have been derived for all values of parameter using perturbation method. These results are compared with simulation results and are found to be in good agreement. The obtained results are valid for the whole solution domain.

Govindhan Varadharajan, Lakshmanan Rajendran
Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/am.2011.29158
Abstract: A closed form of an analytical expression of concentration in the single-enzyme, single-substrate system for the full range of enzyme activities has been derived. The time dependent analytical solution for substrate, enzyme-substrate complex and product concentrations are presented by solving system of non-linear differential equation. We employ He’s Homotopy perturbation method to solve the coupled non-linear differential equations containing a non-linear term related to basic enzymatic reaction. The time dependent simple analytical expressions for substrate, enzyme-substrate and free enzyme concentrations have been derived in terms of dimensionless reaction diffusion parameters ε, λ1, λ2 and λ3 using perturbation method. The numerical solution of the problem is also reported using SCILAB software program. The analytical results are compared with our numerical results. An excellent agreement with simulation data is noted. The obtained results are valid for the whole solution domain.

Abstract: The control chart technique is being widely used in industries to monitor a process for quality improvement. One of the basic charts for attributes is the p-chart. For a p – chart each item is classified as either nonconforming or conforming to the specified quality characteristic. In Some cases, an item may be classified inmore than two categories such as “bad”, “medium”, “good”, and “excellent”. Based on this concept, Amirzadeh et al. [1] have developed Fuzzy Multinomial chart (FM-chart) with the fixed sample size (FSS). In this paper a Fuzzy Multinomial process with Variable Sample Size (VSS) is proposed and the control limits for the FM charthave been obtained using multinomial distribution. The proposed method is compared with the conventional p – chart. It is seen that FM chart with VSS performs better than the conventional chart.

Orthodontic fixed appliance therapy is the commonest mode of treatment for most types of malocclusions (teeth irregularities). However, these materials are liable for microbial adhesion, which predisposes the wearer to increased microbial burden. The present study aims to evaluate, microbial adhesion and growth on commonly used orthodontic ligating materials (Teflon coated wire, stainless steel wire, elastic rings) under in vitro condition. Furthermore, the role of saliva on adhesion and microbial colonization on said materials was also assessed. Experiments were conducted with three different orthodontic ligating materials each in 6 numbers. Growth OD, metabolic activity and cell viability were the experimental variables in addition to SEM (Scanning Electron Microscopy) analysis performed. Results revealed irespective of the nature of the ligating materials, microbial adhesion and growth were observed in all the materials and suggested that the chosen materials promotes microbial adhesion. Nevertheless, stainless steel ligatures were less prone to adhesion compared to Teflon coated and elastic ligatures. Presence of saliva accelerates adhesion and growth.

The design of efficient, durable, and earth-abundant electrocatalysts via environmentally compatible strategies for the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) is a vital for energy conversion processes. Herein we report a facile approach for the fabrication of low-cost and earth abundant metal catalysts, including iron (Fe), nickel (Ni), cobalt (Co), CoNi, and CoFe nanoparticles (NPs) on titanium (Ti) substrates through a one-step electrochemical deposition. Field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM), energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), X-ray diffraction (XRD) spectrocopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), and electrochemical techniques were employed to characterize these nanoparticles. Our electrochemical results revealed that among the five synthesized nanomaterials, the Ti/Co electrode exhibited the highest electrocatalytic activity toward OER in 0.l mol·L-1 KOH with a current density of 10.0 mA·cm-2 at 0.70 V vs. Ag/AgCl. The optimized Ti/Co electrode exhibited a small overpotential (η) of 0.43 V at 10.0 mA·cm-2 and a high mass activity of 105.7 A·g-1 with a turnover frequency (TOF) value of 1.63×10-3 s-1, which are comparable to the values obtained with the state-of-the-art Pt/C and RuO2 electrocatalysts. In addition, the durability of the optimized Ti/Co electrode was tested using a chronopotentiometric technique, which revealed that the developed electrocatalyst possessed good stability for OER in an alkaline solution. The high catalytic activity, high stability, earth abundance, cost-effectiveness, and easy scale-up for mass production make the Co nanoparticles, which were electrochemically deposited on a Ti substrate, promising for industrial water splittin

Abstract: Objective: To evaluate the hepatoprotective potential of methanol extract of roots and rhizomes of Smilax zeylanica L on carbontetrachloride (CCl4) induced hepatotoxicity in Wistar albino rats. Methods: Hepatotoxicity was induced in Wistar albino rats of either sex by administration of CCl4 0.5 ml/kg p.o. once a day for 7 days. The methanol extract of roots and rhizomes of Smilax zeylanica L were administered p.o. at doses of 200, 400 and 600 mg/kg b.w for 7 days. On the 8th day, biochemical estimations were carried out to measure the serum levels of ALT, AST, ALP, albumin, total proteins and total bilirubin. Histopathological examination of liver sections was also performed to study the extent of damage to hepatic parenchyma. Preliminary phytochemical screening of the methanol extract was carried out to find out the presence of various phytoconstituents. HPTLC fingerprint profiles of the detected phytoconstituents were also obtained. Results: Administration of CCl4 produced profound hepatic damage as evidenced by the significant increase in serum levels of ALT, AST, ALP and total bilirubin and decrease in total proteins and albumin. The altered biochemical parameters were brought to near normal levels by the administration of methanol extract of roots and rhizomes of S.zeylanica. Conclusion: S.zeylanica roots and rhizomes possess significant hepatoprotective properties, which may due to the presence of potential hepatoprotective phytoconstituents present in them.
