Carbon nanotubes (CNTs), in particular the vertically-aligned variety grown through a PECVD-based process, are highly versatile nanostructures that can be used in a variety of nanomanufacturing applications. However, process and material compatibility issues have prevented the nanotubes from becoming more fully integrated into various micro- and nanomanufacturing applications. In this paper, we discuss the use of a folding titanium nitride membrane layer to more easily combine the nanotube growth process with other nanomanufacturing schemes, such as Nanostructured OrigamiTM (In et al., 2006).

Traditional Groundwater Diviners/Dowsers v/s Science and technology for Groundwater Exploration- a ...
Throughout world including India, the Groundwater diviners/dowsers claim having the special extra ordinary powers within them by which they could find out the site, for constructing/drilling the bore / wells having best yield of groundwater with definite depth and yields. Literate and illiterate villagers & farmers are highly affected by the ground water diviners. In our country, farmers and agriculture farms are mostly dependent on the unreliable and uncertain rain water through monsoon season. In this...
Enhanced biomass production of duckweeds by inoculating a plant growth-promoting bacterium, ...
Duckweed offers the promise of a co-benefit culture combining water purification with biomass production. Acinetobacter calcoaceticus P23 is a plant growth-promoting bacterium isolated from a duckweed, Lemna aequinoctialis. This study quantified its growth-promoting effect on three duckweeds (L. aoukikusa, L. minor, and Spirodela polyrhiza) in sterile Hoagland solution and evaluated its usefulness in duckweed culture under non-sterile conditions. P23 promoted growth of three duckweeds in sterile Hoagland solution...

Toxicological and Environmental Safety Data - Case Study
IntroductionAGRAGEL is a cross-linked copolymer of acrylic acid and acrylamide partially neutralized as potassium/ ammonium salt. The polymer is in its dry form a granulate and forms a gel-like material upon addition of water or aqueous solutions. Due to the cross-linking it is insoluble in water. Uptake of water is facilitated mainly by the negative carboxylic groups of the polymer and their hydration with water molecules. Complete solubilization is hindered because of the cross-linking of different polymer...
