  • Synthesis, Structure, and Spectral Characterization of Cu(ΙΙ) Complexes
           of Thiocarbohydrazide and Derivates

    • Authors: Shaza GHALI
      Abstract: The synthesis and structure of thiocarbohydrazide and metal complexes of thiocarbohydrazone ligand are described. The ligand was obtained by condensation of N,N`-thiocarbohydrazide with salicylaldehyde. The Cu(II)complex have been synthesized by reacting CuCl2.2H2O and Ligand by molar ratio 2:1(M:L),while the Cu(II) complex of thiocarbohydrazide have been synthesized by reacting CuCl2.2H2O and TCH  by molar ratio 1:2(M:L) These complexes are soluble only to a larger extent in DMF and DMSO .The bonding sites are the azomethine nitrogen atom, phenolic oxygen atom and thiol sulfur atom. The metal complexes exhibit square planner and octahedral structure. Characterization and structure elucidation of the synthesized compounds were achieved by spectral (IR, electronic,1H and 13C NMR) as well as  molar conductivities. Keywords: Thiocarbohydrazide, Thiocarbohydrazone ligand, Cu( ) Complexes, 1H and 13C NMR.

  • Determination of Essential Mineral Contents in Salty Soils Used for
           Supplementary Food to Ruminants in Wolaita Zone

    • Authors: Asrat Kussa Menta
      Abstract: Minerals are essential for life to fulfil the needs of growth and production and to replace cells lost during the course of normal metabolism. On this account, they need to be replenished continuously through food, water or supplements. Although not well studied, rural people in Ethiopia have been using soil supplements for ruminants with the assumption to improve livestock production. Therefore, this study was conducted to examine the mineral content in red and brown salty soils used for supplementary food to ruminants in Wolaita Zone and to compare the findings against the national standards, and forward appropriate recommendation. Representative samples of minerals were taken from different sites of SNNPR around Wolaita Zone, Humbo worada, near Lake Abaya to test the contents and concentration of elements. Sixteen Aduwaa(salty soil) samples were collected, air dried, any visible external particles were removed crashed, homogenized, sieved by using 2 mm mesh, accurately weighed, labelled in plastic bags and sent to mechanical and chemical laboratory and tested using XRF spectroscopy in South Africa and Ethiopian Conformity Assessment Enterprise, in Addis Ababa. One way ANOVA was used for test significance. The findings of XRF spectrometry test showed that there are more than forty six (46) elements in the soil sample. Among them Na (1.790 - 7.562%), Mg (0.461- 0.832%), P (0.023  - 0.092%), S (0.014 – 0.084%), K (2.722 – 3.186%), and Ca (0.404 – 0.844%) are essential macronutrients and Mn (0.190 – 0.216%), Fe (4.908 – 7.292%), Cu (0.00026 – 0.00062%), Co (0.00064 – 0.00089%) and Zn (0.016 - 0.032%), are essential micronutrients which can become toxic when the threshold limits for normal growth are exceeded. The study also showed Aduwaa did not contain heavy metals such as Ir and Hg which have; so far, unknown roles in living organisms, and are toxic even at very low concentrations. However, it contained Pb (0.00048 – 0.00076%), Cd (0.00025 – 0.00128%) and As (0.00425 – 0.00528%) in relatively at very low concentration. The sample contained Fe at extremely high concentration which have antagonistic role in copper absorption and metabolism.

  • Efficiency of Wastewater Treatment System and Its Use for Irrigation - A
           Case Study of a private University in Ghana

    • Authors: Gati L, Gordon A, Mustapha M. B.
      Abstract: The reuse or utilization of treated wastewater for irrigation is conventionally considered as a means of mitigating water shortage or abating water pollution. Wastewater treatment plants designed for reuse in irrigation are more appropriate for developing countries striving to enhance access to improved sanitation. It is well known that successive stages of treatment of sewage effluent reduces the quantity of suspended solids, organic matter and nutrient load, bacteria population as well as biological oxygen demand to the extent that the final treated effluent contains virtually a small fraction compared to the influent sewage. A short-term assessment of the decentralised reuse-oriented effluent system of a private University (in Ghana) was carried out to determine its effluent quality for the purpose of irrigating its landscape. The investigation showed that Total Coliform, E. coli and Vibrio spp. were significantly reduced, through the treatment stages, but not to within Internationally accepted guideline values. Salmonella spp. was not significantly reduced. Physical parameters, nutrients as well as biological oxygen demand did not show any variation along the treatment stages. Suspended solids, optimum temperature and pH were identified as contributing to treatment inefficiency of the plant. It is therefore recommended the treated wastewater, prior to disinfection, should be filtered to reduce suspended solids. This will enhance effective chlorination and by extension, significantly reduce bacteria population. Furthermore Regular monitoring and laboratory analysis of the recycled effluent from the plant should be carried out by the EPA or other professional organisation to ensure compliance. Keywords: Reuse, Wastewater, Irrigation, Chlorination

  • Synthesis of Azobenzene and Naphthopyran Based Polymers and
           Characterization of Their Photochromic Properties

    • Authors: Teferi Tademe
      Abstract: The optically active monomer is prepared to synthesize the target polymer which contains naphthopyran and its photochromic properties and kinetics are investigated as well. Its photochromic property was studied using UV–vis absorption spectroscopy. When we stop measuring of the UV light, the decolorization of the sample changes spontaneously in the dark because of the thermal back-reaction which occurs as open form of the naphthopyran undergoes ring closure and the polymer’s decoloration kinetics in films forms were analysed in the dark condition at room temperature after the optical intensity reached the maximum under UV irradiation. The naphthopyran polymer has showed the thermal bleaching tendency that the decoloration rate is very fast at the beginning of the thermal bleach and then gradually it became slow down. Keywords- Photochromism, naphthopyran-containing polymer, kinetics, irradiation

  • Investigation into Trihalomethanes in Lager Beers Brewed in Ghana

    • Authors: Gati L; , Gordon A, Asiedu G. G.
      Abstract: Water is a vital ingredient in beer constituting 91-98% of the content. In Ghana, the main source of water for the two major breweries in the city of Accra is from the Ghana Water Company which takes its source from the Weija Dam and the quality of the water, which may be changed without warning. Moreover, chlorination is the most widely used water disinfection process. Trihalomethanes are formed when water containing natural organic matter reacts with chlorine used in disinfection and other halogens. Trihalomethanes are potential carcinogens and it has been reported to cause a higher incidence of bladder and colon cancer in animals. Therefore, this research was carried out to determine the levels of trihalomethanes in six selected brands commercially brewed lager beers by the two major breweries in Ghana. A gas chromatograph equipped with an electron capture detector coupled with a headspace auto-sampler fitted with the column HP-5, 30m × 0.32mm × 0.25µm was used in analyzing fourty-eight bottles of lager beers comprising of 8 different batches from each of the six brands. The highest trihalomethane detected in the lager beers was chloroform with a concentration 20.19 ±  2.73µg/l and the least detected was dibromochloromethane of concentration 0.282 ± 0.06µg/l. The levels detected were below the World Health Organization’s total daily intake guideline values of 300µg/l, 60µg/l, 100µg/l and 100µg/l for chloroform, bromodichloromethane, dibromochloromethane and bromoform respectively in drinking water. However, regular intake of beer with higher concentrations of trihalomethanes as it was observed in some of the samples can increase the risk of one being diagnosed of cancer related ailments in the longer future. It is therefore recommended that the regulatory bodies such as the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) and the Ghana Standards Authority (GSA) must begin to monitor the levels of trihalomethanes in beers and other beverages that are produced in the country to help safeguard the health of the citizenry. Keywords: Trihalomethanes , carcinogens, chlorination, gas chromatograph, lager beers

    • Authors: Alami Lamiae, Souad Salmaoui, Abdelkhalek Oussama, Ali El Moujahid, Abderrahim Hassani, Manar Otmani, Mohamed Mbarki
      Abstract: This study was carried out to evaluate the silage quality of sugar beet pulp throughout the storage period and so obtain useful information for farmers and livestock feed industry. All silages were prepared in bags of 50 kg in anaerobic conditions. Silages were sampled on months 0, 3 and 6.the results indicate a net decrease of the pH to around 3.8 after 3months silage and remained stable, an important increase of the lactic acid and a slight increase in the acetic acid. But there is a total absence of propionic acid and butyric acid and that after 3 months and 6 months silage. These results have allowed classifying silage 3 months and 6 months between a good and excellent. the results indicated that there is a positive and significant correlation between lactic and acetic acid (r = 0.955 **) and between DM and pH (r = 0 .630**), but there is a negative and significant correlation between pH and lactic acid (r = -0.896**), between DM and lactic acid (r = -0.731**), between acetic acid and pH (r= -0.921**) and between acetic acid and DM (r= -0.678**). Keywords: Sugar beet pulp; silage; VFAs; pH; Storage period.
