  • Synthesis Pathway and Powerful Antimicrobial Properties of Silver
           Nanoparticle: A Critical Review

    • Abstract: One of the most useful applications of silver nanoparticles (Ag-np) is an antimicrobial agent that can have inhibitory effects against microbial pathogens. This paper reviews the detail of physical, chemical and green chemistry methods for synthesis of Ag-np and also its mechanism as antibacterial to inhibit many microbial pathogens. The main steps in preparation of Ag-np via chemical and green chemistry methods are the choice of the solvent medium, reducing agent and stabilizing or capping agent. The physical method needs physical or mechanical energy to achieve nano-size material. Green chemistry is the most promising method to be developed due to its simplicity and environmentally benign. As an antibacterial agent, effects of Ag-np toxicity are influenced by both of Ag-np and the silver ions which released during contact with water or tissue fluid. Both of those silver species can penetrate into the cytoplasm, DNA or ribosomes. The inactivation process of enzyme-membranes like phosphomannose isomerase caused denaturation of the bacterial cell.

  • Knowledge and Adherence to Radiation Protection among Healthcare Workers
           at Operation Theater

    • Abstract: Background and Objectives: Diagnostic radiology technology is used to obtain a high-quality image for the patients during surgeries at Operation theater (OT). It is important to ensure low radiation dose by applying the radiation protection and safety principles to the healthcare team. Hence, the aim of this study was to assess the knowledge towards radiation protection and adherence to radiation safety measurements among healthcare workers who employ ionizing radiation in the operating theater. Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional study targeted healthcare workers; physicians, nurses and anesthesia technologists working in the operating suite that were exposed to radiation during procedures. The survey asked participants to measure their knowledge and adherence to radiation protection during their presences or practice of radiology procedures. Results: The overall mean adherence score was 4.08±1.33 and the overall mean knowledge score was 3.24±0.97 and the two scores revealed a significant positive correlation (r = 0.226, p = 0.035). The technologists and males showed higher adherence score. Physicians and females showed insignificantly higher knowledge score. Physicians illustrated significantly (p = 0.006) higher percentage concerning ensuring a minimum of 1-2 m distance from radiation source during procedures, followed by the technologists (78.6%) and nursing (60%). While there was no association between knowledge and occupation. On the other hand, males were significantly (p = 0.032) more likely to wear TLD (97.2%) and lead apron (97.2%) during procedures as compared to females (82.4 and 80.4, respectively). Conclusion: Similar to adherence, there was no association between knowledge and sex. Healthcare workers showed good adherence to radiation safety measurements, with less knowledge towards radiation protection. However, there was a positive correlation between adherence and knowledge scores. Adherence was dependent on the health profession and sex while knowledge was independent of both. There is a need to increase knowledge and awareness toward the adherence to the radiation protection guidelines.

  • Determinants of Maize Supply from Dryland Farming: Evidence from Central
           Java

    • Abstract: Background and Objective: In Central Java, maize is a kind of crop that has the potential to be developed as the number of food-processing industry increases. Wonogiri district is a dryland maize-producer area with production always increases every year. Based on its natural conditions, the region could not support maize farming well enough. However, with limited natural conditions, Wonogiri become the second-highest maize production areas in Central Java. This research aimed to analyze the determinant of maize supply, the most influential factors to maize supply and its elasticity. Materials and Methods: In order to estimate the determinants of maize supply, this study uses agricultural time series data for 16 years from 2001-2016 recorded by Central Bureau of Statistics, Department of Industry and Trade, Cooperatives and Small Medium Enterprises, Department of Agriculture and Bank Indonesia of Wonogiri district. Then, linear multiple regression is applied to analyze the data. Seven variables are selected to examine the determinants of maize supply. Result: The result shows that the estimated parameter of maize production in the previous year, harvested area, price of maize in the previous year and price of urea fertilizer have significantly affect to the maize supply. In addition, the significant variables have varying elasticity values, both in the long-term and short-term. The supply elasticity of production in the short term is smaller than 1, while the long-term elasticity is larger than 1. The supply elasticity of harvested area in the long term and short term is greater than 1. The supply elasticity of maize price in the previous year and fertilizer price are less than 1, both in the long run and short term. Conclusion: The determinant analysis of maize supply in Central Java shows that maize production in the previous year, harvested area, price of maize in the previous year and price of urea fertilizer influence the maize supply from dryland farming in Central Java. Harvested area is the most influential factor. Furthermore, the supply elasticity of production in the short term is inelastic, while in the long-term is elastic. The supply elasticity of harvested area in the long term and short term is elastic. On the other hand, the supply elasticity of maize price and urea fertilizer price are inelastic both in the short term and long term.

  • Mesosphere-Stratosphere-Troposphere Radar Data Processing using Sparse
           Learning via Iterative Minimization

    • Abstract: Background and Objective: The Atmospheric Radars can provide accurate wind parameters using various spectral estimation techniques. Existing methods for spectrum estimation, however, often fail to detect the signal at low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) conditions and to estimate precise wind parameters. In this study, a regularized minimization approach, Sparse Learning via Iterative Minimization (SLIM) is considered for the spectral analysis. Methodology: SLIM, which is a high resolution semiparametric adaptive algorithm, follows an lq-norm based minimization method for sparse signal and noise power estimation. This is applied for atmospheric data collected at National Atmospheric Research Laboratory (NARL), Gadanki, India, from the Mesosphere-Stratosphere-Troposphere (MST) radar, backscattered echoes. Results: The results show that SLIM gives a better SNR or high detectability. The Zonal, Meridional, Wind speeds are calculated, and validated using the real-time Global Positioning System (GPS) Sonde data. Conclusion: It can be concluded that SLIM has better performance when compared to the previous methods. The correlation between the wind speeds computed using GPS and SLIM for the radar data collected in February 2015 has a correlation factor of 0.94.

  • Thai Consumer Organic Food-Related Lifestyle (FRL), Attitude and Perceived
           Value Segmentation: A Discriminant Analysis Approach

    • Abstract: Background and Objective: Thailand is becoming a key participant in the global production of organic food products. As such, the objectives of this study were to examine the antecedents and consequences of Thai consumer attitudes toward local organic food products and to segment these consumers using their food-related lifestyle (FRL) patterns, attitudes and perceived values. Materials and Methods: This research employed quantitative methods and use of a 72 item questionnaire to collect data from 400 Thai organic food consumers in the first half of 2018. SPSS software version 21 was used to conduct a cluster analysis and discriminant analysis and then analyze the frequencies, percentage, mean and standard deviation. Results: From the segmentation into three organic food consumer groups, which included sensory organic eaters (Group 1), organic eaters (Group 2) and unhealthy conventional organic eaters (Group 3), it was determined that an organic food product’s quality aspect had the greatest importance across all three groups. However, a consumer’s attitude concerning their emotional value was judged to have the least importance across all three groups when purchasing organic food products (OFP). Conclusion: From the analysis of the three groups of Thai organic food consumers, the sensory organic eaters (SOEs = Group 1) and the organic eaters (Oes = Group 2) were highly sensitive and had nearly the same attributes to each other. Perceived value, attitude and food-related lifestyle were also shown to be helpful in separating the unhealthy conventional organic eaters (UCOEs = Group 3) for marketing purposes. Finally, consumers of organic food products in all three groups placed a very high value on sanitary and phytosanitary conditions.

  • Curcuma Explant Multiplication in MS Medium Supplemented with Various
           Kinds of Cytokinine and Auxin Concentration

    • Abstract: Background and Objectives: Establishing new protocol for in vitro propagation of turmeric from vegetative tissue is needed to be studied more due to the demand of turmeric increased every year and also for producing a faster rhizome propagation and free-disease rhizome. The MS solid medium mostly used in in vitro culture. To make a faster explant multiplication, cytokinine must be supplemented to MS medium. The objective of this study was to study the effect of various cytokinins and concentration of Naphthalene Acetic Acid on the explant multiplication of turmeric. Materials and Methods: This study was conducted in the Laboratory of Tissue Culture, Faculty of Agriculture, Universitas Padjajaran. Young shoot of sprout rhizome was cultured in MS basal medium supplemented with different kinds of cytokinins (BAP, TDZ and Zeatin) were combined with 0.01 and 1.0 mg L–1 of NAA. All parameters were tested by analysis of t-student test at the 5% significance level. Results: Three kinds of cytokinins (BAP, TDZ and Zeatin) were combined with 0.01 and 1.0 mg L–1 of NAA and supplemented to MS solid medium. The result showed that TDZ was more effective than BAP and Zeatin for explant multiplication. The supplementation of TDZ combined with NAA resulted the best effect on shoot multiplication resulted in the highest shoot number compared with control but the supplementation of cytokinins affected in the root elongation resulted the short root length. Conclusion: It was concluded that supplementation of cytokinine in MS medium significantly effects on the shoot formation but inhibit the root elongation. The TDZ was the best type of cytokinine that affects shoot multiplication.

  • Potassium Permanganate Loaded Activated Carbon Production from Pineapple
           Leaf at Low Pyrolysis Temperature for Water Hardness Removal

    • Abstract: Background and Objective: Generally, the high activation temperature was used for preparation of activated carbon from biomass which results in high energy costs. So in this study, KMnO4 modified carbon material from pineapple leaf by single stage was studied for finding the lowest suitable pyrolysis temperature. Materials and Methods: The effects of 0.0-5.0 wt% KMnO4 and pyrolysis temperature of 200-500°C were studied by SEM-EDS, XRD, FT-IR and BET analyzer. The pyrolyzed KMnO4 modified pineapple leaf was used for Ca2+ and Mg2+ removal from aqueous solution. The Ca2+ and Mg2+ ions adsorption efficiency by pyrolyzed KMnO4 modified product were evaluated. The Langmuir isotherm and Freundlich isotherm were also used for evaluation of Ca2+ and Mg2+ adsorption by the pyrolyzed pineapple leaf modified with 3.0 wt% KMnO4. Results: The results show that MnO2 deposited on the surface of KMnO4 modified pineapple leaf with some heterogeneity. The OH, C=O, C-O and MnO groups are major functional groups on the surface of KMnO4 modified product. The BET surface area and total pore volume of KMnO4 modified pineapple leaf is decreases, while the average pore size is increases with increasing of KMnO4 concentration. The Ca2+ and Mg2+ adsorption capacities on pyrolyzed modified products are in the range of 4.17-23.04 and 1.04-8.56 mg g–1, respectively, based on fitting to the Freundlich isotherm model. Conclusion: This study indicated the possibility to reduce the pyrolysis temperature to 300°C for single stage pyrolyzed KMnO4 modified pineapple leaf production, which could reduce energy costs of activated carbon production.

  • Risk Assessment of Subsea Gas Pipeline Due to Port Development Located at
           Narrow Channel

    • Abstract: Background and Objective: Offshore gas pipeline is one of the methods to distribute gas from gas field to receiving facility. There is 16" subsea export gas pipeline exporting gas from Poleng gas field to ORF (Onshore Receiving Facility) in Gresik. Due to plan of port development in Socah-Bangkalan, the pipeline segment located in KP 49-55 could be eventually affected by the development plan both during construction of the port and during its operation. This study aimed to assess the risk possessed by the export gas pipeline due to port development plan during the construction and operation period. Materials and Methods: The ranks of frequency and consequences were mapped into risk matrix according to DNV-RP-F107. The mitigation was selected by implementing Multiple Attribute Decision Making (MADM) approach using Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) method. Results: Based on the result, during construction period, risk profiles laid in acceptable and ALARP regions. These mean that technically in practical, the risk still acceptable and no further mitigation was required for hazard possess by the pipeline in acceptable and ALARP regions. During operation of Jetty, the risk to pipeline was unacceptable, except for hazard of dropped and dragged anchor caused by the tugboat. The most preferable pipeline risk mitigation method was lowering the pipeline segment located in front of the jetty to 2 m below the water depth of final capacity development of port and installing additional of navigational aid (yellow buoy) to indicate the existence of the pipeline. Conclusion: Therefore, the risk assessment should be taken for every activity that could possibly affect the offshore facility in order to ensure the safety during the process and against the pipeline, so the mitigation can be taken when the risk was unacceptable.
