  • Assessment of Woody Vegetation Structure in Relation to Different Grazing
           Areas and Chemical Composition of Major Browse Species in Chifra District,
           Afar Regional state

    • Authors: Mohammed Abdulatife, Hanfere Mohammed, Abule Ebro
      Abstract: The objectives of the study were to assess the woody species composition and chemical composition of major browse species under three grazing areas. The study was undertaken in Chifra district of zone one (Awsi Rasu) of the Afar Regional State. The total tree species recorded in the study district was 14. According to the perceptions of the pastoralists, of the identified woody species, 42.9, 28.6, 21.4 and 7.1% were highly palatable, palatable, less palatable and unpalatable, respectively. Some of the dominant (>20% of the density) and/or common (10% to 20% of the density) woody species in the communal grazing areas of the lower altitude (>550-850m) were Acalypha fruticosa and Solanum incanum. A long riversides species like Casuarina equisetifolia and Salvadora persiaca were dominant and/or common. Whereas, Acacia tortilis, C. equisetifolia, C. africana and G. tembensis were common and/or dominant in the enclosure areas.  A. fruticosa and G. tembensis were common and/or dominant in the communal grazing area of the upper altitude (>850-1100 m) The communal grazing areas had a higher percentage of woody vegetation in two consecutive height classes i.e. >0-0.5 m and >0.5-1m in the lower altitude (>550-850 m) but in the upper altitude (>850-1100 m) a higher percentage of woody vegetation were found in three consecutive height classes, i.e.,>1.5-2m, >2-3m and >3-4m than in the other two grazing areas. The CP content was higher in the composite sample taken from enclosure areas and lowest in riversides grazing areas in both seasons. Grewia tembensis was the best tree species with better nutritive value due to higher content of CP, whereas Balanite aegyptica was a low quality species relative to the other tree species. Keywords: Communal, riversides, enclosure, tree species, common and dominant

  • Impact of Air Pollution on Proline and Soluble Sugar Content of Selected
           Plant Species

    • Authors: AGBAIRE; Patience Odafevejiri
      Abstract: This study examined the effect of ambient air population of two biochemical factors of plants; Proline and soluble sugar. Two sets of similar ecological statues of but different exposure to vehicular activities were used. The initiative, known as Experiment Site (ES) and the other, Control Site (CS). Twenty plant species were chosen from these sites. Proline and soluble sugar were determined according to standard methods. The result of this study showed an increase proline content on the experimental site suggestive of its protective mechanism under stress condition. There was a significant difference between the concentration of proline at the experimental and control sites. The percentage change (increase) from control site to experimental sites ranged between 24.90 % in Citrus sinesis to 57.22 % in Carica papaya. Soluble sugar on the other had reduced at experimental site when compared with those of a control site. There was however no significant difference in the concentration of soluble sugar from experimental and control sites. The percentage change (reduction) ranged between 24.49 % in Tipu tipuana and 47.87 % in Psidium guajava and Anacadium occidentale. This reduction in the concentration of soluble sugar in experimental site, suggest photosynthetic inhibition. Keywords: Soluble Sugar, Proline, Air Pollution, Biochemical, Nigeria

  • Impact Assessment of Cement Factory Waste Water on the Heavy Metal
           Contents of a Typical Low-Latitude Stream in North Central Nigeria

    • Authors: Francis K. Meme, Francis O. Nwadukwe
      Abstract: Sediment and water samples from Oinyi River were collected bi-monthly from three sampling stations and analyzed for heavy metals in order to ascertain their distribution in sediment and water of the river, and also to determine the effects of the cement factory waste water on heavy metal concentration of the studied river. Station 1, located upstream of point of discharge of cement factory waste water, served as control point. Station 2 was immediately downstream of the factory’s waste water discharge point, and was designated as impact site while station 3 which was selected as the recovery site was downstream of both station 1 and 2. The cement factory waste water impacted negatively on the water chemistry and sediment of the river. Values obtained from river water sample showed that Zinc (0.05-0.054mg/l) and Copper (0.004-0.008mg/l) had their highest values at station 2 while the values of Manganese (114.8–115.8mg/kg), Zinc (6.07–6.26 mg/kg), Copper (3.3–3.39 mg/kg), Nickel (5.2–6 mg/kg), Lead (0.4–0.55 mg/kg), Chromium (0.3–0.45 mg/kg) and Cadmium (0.15–0.24 mg/kg), of river sediment, were also highest at the cement impacted site. However, there was reduction in the amount of Iron (92.4–93.8 mg/kg) in sediment sample of impacted site. These noticeable increases in the heavy metal contents of the waste water impacted site may be attributed to the cement factory effluent, and if not checked or stopped may become a matter of health issue because of the enormous human activities taking place in the site, as recorded in the study. Keywords: cement factory; waste water; heavy metals; sediment; water quality; Oinyi River.

  • Qualitative and Quantitative Analysis of Fatty Acid Composition of Parkia
           Biglobbossa Seed Oil Using Gas Chromatographic and High Resolution Nuclear
           Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopic Methods

    • Authors: Ayomadewa Mercy OLATUNYA, Cecilia Olufunke AKINTAYO, Emmanuel Temitope AKINTAYO
      Abstract: Gas chromatography (GC) and high resolution nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopic techniques were used to determine the qualitative and quantitative fatty acid composition of Parkia biglobbossa seed oil. The results obtained from GC, 13C NMR and 1H NMR methods were compared using statistical analysis of one way analysis of variance and there was no significant difference in all the percentages obtained for both saturated and unsaturated fatty acid (P> 0.05).  The result showed that 1H NMR, 13C NMR and GC techniques could be used for determination of the saturated and unsaturated fatty acid composition of P. biglobbossa. NMR may therefore be more suitable because it is reliable, less time consuming and not laborious compared to other classical methods. Keywords:  Parkia biglobbossa oil, Gas chromatography, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Fatty acid composition.

  • Monitoring of Industrial Waste Disposal by the use of Computer-developed
           Models: A Case Study of the Jakara Waste-water Channel in Kano Metropolis,
           Kano State, Nigeria

    • Authors: Timothy Akpomie, Eno Ekanem, Mohammed Adamu
      Abstract: The concentrations of four heavy metals (Fe, Cd, Cu and Pb), from a previous study, on the determination of pollutants in waste-water samples along the Jakara waste-water channel in Kano metropolis were modelled using the Minitab statistical software. This was with the view of obtaining a model that would estimate and forecast the extent of pollution by the continuous discharge of industrial sewage on the canal. Though the initial concentrations of these metals were higher than the acceptable limits for sewage disposal by the World health organization (WHO), the obtained models showed that the concentrations of the respective heavy metals were increasing in a quadratic manner with time. Furthermore, from an initial concentration of 21.45, 3.58, 3.78 and 2.87mg/l for each respective heavy metal in the year 2008, the obtained models forecasted the concentrations at 95% confidence level, to be 15, 56, 30 and 35 times higher than their initial concentrations respectively by the year 2013. Finally, the order for this bioaccumulation was found to be Cd > Pb > Cu > Fe. The predicted concentrations would be indicative of the degree of bioaccumulation of these metals by vegetables if irrigated from this wastewater source.

  • Insulin and Glucagon Levels in Diabetic, Diabetic Neuropathy Patient`s

    • Authors: Tamara Ala`a, Zeinab M. Al-Rubaei
      Abstract: Background: Diabetic neuropathy affects 30–50% of patients with diabetes mellitus. It encompasses several neuropathic syndromes, the commonest being distal symmetrical polyneuropathy or ‘diabetic peripheral neuropathy’ (DPN). Risk factors for DPN include poor glycaemic control and drivers of macrovascular disease including hypertension.Objective: The study aimed to determination of insulin, glucagon levels in diabetic and diabetic neuropathy patient`s and compare the results with control group. Also, Insulin/Glu ratio calculated that may be used in early diagnosis of diabetic neuropathy.Subjects and Methods: ninety subjects were enrolled in this study with aged ranged (40-65) years and BMI with (30-35) Kg/m2 that divided into three groups as follows: group one (G1) consists of 30 healthy individuals as a control group, group two (G2) consists of 30 patients with diabetic and group three (G3) consists of 30 patients with diabetic and neuropathy as complication. ESC(Feet Mean), ESC(Hand Mean), ESC(Risk of neuropathies), FBS, insulin, Glucagon were determined. Also, HOMA-IR and insulin/Glu ratio were calculated.Results: The results of this study revealed highly significant differences in ESC (Feet Mean), ESC (Hand Mean) and ESC (Risk of neuropathies) between G2 and G3 comparing with G1 and in G3 comparing to G2. Results revealed a highly significant increased in FBS, insulin and HOMA-IR levels in G2 comparing to G1 and in G3 comparing to G2 and G1. Results, also, showed a high significant increased in glucagon levels in G2 and G3 comparing to G1 while no significant increased was found in G3 comparing to G2. Results, also, showed no significant reduction was found in In/Glu ratio in G2 comparing to G1, while a high significant elevation was observed in G3 comparing to G2 and G1.Conclusion: The conclusion could be drawn from this study that insulin and glucagon increased in patients with neurodiabetic when comparing to diabetic patients. Also, In/Glu ratio increased significantly in neurodiabetic patients when comparing to diabetic and control group that may be considered important marker in diagnosis of development of neuropathy risk. Keywords: Diabetic Neuropathy, Insulin, Glucagon, Insulin/ Glu Ratio.

  • Green Approach to Corrosion Inhibition of Mild Steel in Sulphuric Acid
           Solution using Extract of Banana Leaves

    • Authors: Dakeshwar Kumar Verma, Fahmida Khan
      Abstract: The inhibition of the corrosion of mild steel in sulphuric acid solution by the extract of banana leaves has been studied using weight loss, Fourier transform infrared spectra and scanning electron microscopy techniques. Inhibition was found to increase with increasing concentration of the leaves extract. Maximum inhibition efficiency observed 94.91% at optimum concentration of inhibitor. The inhibition was assumed to occur via adsorption of the inhibitor molecules on the metal surface. The adsorption of the extract component on the mild steel surface obeys the Langmuir adsorption isotherm. The results obtained show that the extract of the leaves of banana could serve as an effective inhibitor of the corrosion of mild steel in sulphuric acid medium. Keywords: Adsorption, Corrosion, Mild steel, Weight loss, Inhibition efficiency

      Abstract: Porphyrins moleculars is a macrocyclic compounds, suitable to be an excellent analytical reagent for spectrum analysis due to its highest molar absorption coefficient, for its complexes with wide range for several metal ions compared with the open chain reagent, so it can be used to determine traces of metal ions which coordinate with it.The multiplity of the bands for porphyrins reagent itself which reach to five bands cover all the spectrum (350-800)nm create inefficient direct molecular spectrum methods, because of overlap between reagent spectrum and formed complex spectrum, for thought, employment of (HPLC) can separate the excess reagent from the formed complex ,and separate the formed complexes from each other, at the same time, because the difference at retention time in the column,  and all the formed complexes with porphyrin have a common absorbance band called (Soret band) appear in the range (400-420)nm which allowed to fixing wavelength in the detector on (HPLC), thus enable to record the analytical signal for nano molar concentration for most metal ions which coordinate with porphyrins molecular formed a chelate complexes, these formed complexes are very stable, the dissuasion possibility is less for long storage period, comparing with other reagents, the overlap  on spectrum will be minimized. This research can be a serious procedure to develop analytical high quality method to determine later transition metal ions, using HLPC technique and tetraphenylporphyrin (H2TPP), we have acheived the following : 1- We studied the chromatographic behavior for the H2TPP by using (UV-Vis) in several solvents: (DMF, CH2Cl2, CCl4,C6H5-CH3). 2- The possibility to form a chelating complex between H2TPP and Zn ion has been studied, in addition to all effective factors which include the best formation, we have reach to the optimum conditions.   we have known to the chromatographic behavior of formed complex, and reach to the optimum separation condition between the formed complex and the excess concentration of the reagent . 3- we calculated the steichiometric composition for the formed complex by (Molar ratio and continuous method), calculated the molar absorption coefficient for formed complex, its constant formation, the linear relation between the analytical signal (peak surface) and the Zn concentration was achieved, which in contestable to Lambert-Beer law in the wide range. 4- The proposed method was applied on model samples of Zn indented with its actual contain. 5- we reached to the optimum chromatographic peaks  separation for formed  complexes(Zn-TPP, Ni-TPP, H2TPP, VO-TPP), as the following retention time respectively : tR=4.2 <   tR=6  <   tR=6.8 < tR=12.4     (min) 6- We can confirmed according to the  results which we obtained: (RP-HPLC) to solve spectrums overlap between H2TPP and formed metal complexes,  the possibility to insulate analytical chromatography peaks: sharp, symmetric, and related to the metal ions concentration  in a wide range and for nanomol ion concentration, consequently it well allow us to determine traces of metal ions. Keywords: porphyrins  , chelate , complex , RP-HPLC ,  and traces ion.
