Title: Enzymatic saccharification, morphology, and thermal properties of starch from various botanical sources
Section: Research Article
Category: Natural Products
Country: India
View Article

Aim: Four commonly used and locally purchased commercial starch flours of the botanical sources, namely potato (P), corn (C), tapioca (T), and wheat (W) were analyzed for their morphological features, thermal stability, inherent viscosity, moisture content, structure by Fourier transform-infrared spectroscopy, optimum temperature, and pH for their α-amylase catalyzed saccharification and the related rate by spectrophotometry using 3,5-dinitrosalycylic acid (DNS) as a chromogen. Results and Discussion:The measured optimum temperature and pH for α-amylase with the starch substrates were found to be 47°C and 7, respectively. The glucose (reducing sugar) yield and hence the rate of saccharification (or digestibility) for various constant times of hydrolysis had followed the order P>C> W>T. The scanning electron microscopy micrographs and X-ray diffractograms of the starch samples indicated that all of them are granular having different size and shapes, and semicrystalline, respectively. The difference in peak temperatures of endothermic moisture loss observed in differential scanning calorimetry may be attributed to the difference in their morphology, molecular weight, and amylose/amylopectin ratio. The percentage moisture content (percentage weight loss up to 150°C), onset degradation temperatures (°C), and percentage residual weight at 650°C under nitrogen in the thermogravimetry traces of these starch samples followed the order C (10.1) > P (8.9) > W (6.5) > T (5.7), C (300) > W (275) > P (270) > T (251), and W (19) > P16.7 > T (14.1) > C (5.3), respectively. Conclusion:These results will be highly useful for quality control of starch produced from different botanical sources, selection of appropriate starch for the commercial production of glucose and fructose syrups used in medical and confectionary applications, production of bioplastics, formulation of food from poorly digestible, and fastly hydrolyzable starch materials for diabetic patients and infants, respectively

A novel substituted pyrazole trifluoro methyl hexa hydro pyrimidinones (4a-g) have been prepared by Biginelli condensation of six substituted pyrazolealdehydes, ethyltrifluoroacetoacetate and urea using zinc chloride as catalyst. The structures of the synthesized compounds have been confirmed on the basis of spectral data. The newly synthesized compounds have been assayed invitro for antimicrobial activity and cardiotonic activity.

Title: Wet chemical method for determination of free carbon content in boron carbide
Section: Research Article
Category: Analytical Chemistry
Country: India
View Article

A wet chemical method has been developed for the estimation of free carbon in boron carbide. A chromic-sulfuric acid mixture is used to selectively oxidize the free carbon to carbon dioxide which is precipitated as barium carbonate in a known excess of barium hydroxide solution. The free carbon content is then calculated from the barium hydroxide consumed.
