A novel intelligent pH-sensing indicator based on bacterial nanocellulose (BC) and black carrot anthocyanins (CA) was developed and characterized to monitor the freshness/spoilage of rainbow trout and common carp fillet during the storage at 4 degrees C. The indicator displayed wide color differences from red to gray over the 2-11 pH range, which was clearly discerned by the naked eye. The fabricated pH-sensing indicator showed distinguishable color changes during fresh (deep carmine color), best to eat (charm pink color), and spoiled (jelly bean blue and khaki colors) stages of both fish fillets. Moreover, a strong and positive correlation was obtained between the total color differences values of the indicator and bacterial count (R= 0.952 and 0.991) and total volatile basic nitrogen (R= 0.815 and 0.92) in rainbow trout and common carp samples. The results of this work demonstrated a significant correspondence of fish shelf life and color changes of a nanocellulose-based pHsensing indicator.

Combination of nanoparticles and biomolecules attracted considerable attention in biosensing applications. In this study, effective surface design was investigated by modifying the electrode surface with pristine and functionalized gold nanoparticles. For this purpose, spherical gold nanoparticles were synthesized and characterized with UV-vis spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) analyses. Then, gold nanoparticles were modified with mercaptopropionic acid (MPA) yielding Au-S bonds (Au NPs...
A COMPUTATIONAL STUDY ON SOME SELENIUM-CONTAINING NAPHTHALENE DERIVATIVES
Türker, Burhan Lemi (Informa UK Limited, 2009-01-01)
A quantum chemical study, based on DFT theory is presented which considers certain selenium-containing naphthalene derivatives, including a keto group together with a Se atom embedded in either a five- or six-membered ring fused with naphthalene moiety. The corresponding enol structures also are considered. The quantum chemical and IR data collected are analyzed and NICS(0) values have been obtained.

A new polythiophene derivative was synthesized by both chemical and electrochemical oxidative polymerization of 1-(1-phenylethyl)-2,5-di(2-thienyl)-1H-pyrrole (PETPy). Of which the chemical method produces a polymer that is completely soluble in organic solvents. The structures of both the monomer and the soluble polymer were elucidated by nuclear magnetic resonance (H-1 and C-13 NMR) and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. The average molecular weight has been determined by gel permeation chrom...
PREPARATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF PERLITE-FILLED HIGH-DENSITY POLYETHYLENES .1. MECHANICAL-PROPERTIES
AKINOKTEM, G; TINCER, T (Wiley, 1994-11-21)
Four different types of high-density polyethylenes (HDPE) were blended with perlite at different concentrations. Silane coupling agent gamma-aminopropyltriethoxy silane (gamma-APS, A-1100) was used to enhance the adhesion between perlite and HDPEs. Ultimate tensile strength and elastic modulus increased as the perlite content increased, while ultimate elongations decreased with the increasing amount of perlite. Exceptional variations in the measured properties are explained in terms of the differences in po...

A new electrochromic polymer, poly(2,3,5,8-tetra(thiophen-2-yl)quinoxaline) (PTTQ), was synthesized electrochemically and its electrochromic properties were investigated. The polymer was characterized by Cyclic Voltammetry, Fourier Transform infrared spectroscopy, LTV-Vis-NIR Spectroscopy, and colorimetry. Spectroelectrochemistry analysis demonstrated that the polymer can undergo both p- and true n-type doping processes. The polymer, (PTTQ), has three accessible color states: an oxidized transmissive, a neu...
