  • Correlation of antioxidant activity of dried berry infusions with the
           polyphenols and selected microelements contents

    • Authors: M. M. Bratu, S. Birghila, A. Popescu, B. S. Negreanu-Pirjol, T. Negreanu-Pirjol
      Abstract: Antioxidant activity was measured by ferric reducing ability of plasma (FRAP) assay in seven types of infusions prepared from commercial dried berry fruit products: Rosa canina, Vaccinium vitis-idaea, Hiphophae rhamnoides, Hibiscus sabdariffa and three fruit mixtures. Total polyphenols (TP), total anthocyanins and the polyphenolic compounds were determined by HPLC equipped with diode array detector. To estimate the amount of elements released from fruits into the water extracts, levels of Fe, Mn, Zn and Cu in dried samples and in infusions were determined by flame atomic absorption spectrometry. The correlation between polyphenols content and the antioxidant activities and the microelements in the infusions and the antioxidant activities were estimated using the Pearson’s correlation test. The results showed a high, positive and significant correlation (r = 0.9465) between the FRAP values and TP content, meaning that the concentration of phenolic compounds may be a good indicator of the reducing capacity in the infusions. Correlations varied (positive, negative and weak) between antioxidant and mineral extractability of berry infusions. Among the polyphenolic compounds, gallic acid contributed particularly to the antioxidant capacity of the studied samples (r = 0.563). The correlation of antioxidants, total polyphenols with mineral extractability showed the influence of antioxidant compound on mineral bioavailability. KEY WORDS: Mixed berry infusion, Antioxidant activity, Phenolic compounds, Microelements Bull.

  • Correlation between caffeine contents of green coffee beans and altitudes
           of the coffee plants grown in southwest Ethiopia

    • Authors: M. Hagos, M. Redi-Abshiro, B. S. Chandravanshi, E. Ele, A. M. Mohammed, H. Mamo
      Abstract: Caffeine contents of 45 green coffee bean samples collected from coffee plants grown at different altitudes in Southwest Ethiopia was determined by UV-Vis spectrophotometry. The caffeine contents were found in the range of 0.62 - 1.2% (w/w). A moderate negative correlation (R = 0.5463) was found between the caffeine contents of green coffee beans and the altitudes at which the coffee plants were grown. The caffeine contents of 9 of the green coffee bean samples analyzed by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) provided comparable results in the range of 0.60−1.1% (w/w). Statistical analysis of data (t-test) indicated absence of significant differences between the caffeine contents obtained by the two methods. Nonetheless, HPLC method is precise, accurate and reliable in determining caffeine content in green coffee bean samples while the UV-Vis spectrophotometry is simple, rapid, precise and more economical. KEY WORDS: Green coffee beans, Caffeine, Correlation between caffeine content and altitude of coffee plant, UV-Vis spectrophotometry, High performance liquid chromatography, Ethiopia Bull.

  • Assessment of metals in roasted indigenous coffee varieties of Ethiopia

    • Authors: A. Gure, B. S. Chandravanshi, T. W. Godeto
      Abstract: The metals content (Ca, Cd, Cr, Co, Cu, Fe, K, Mg, Mn, Ni, Pb and Zn) of roasted coffee varieties grown in five different regions of Ethiopia was determined by flame atomic absorption spectrometry. Representative samples were collected from Coffee Quality Inspection and Liquoring Center in the capital city, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and the metals were extracted by wet digestion. The optimal digestion required 4 hours refluxing at 270 oC on Kjeldhal hot plate with a mixture of 5 mL HNO3 (70%) and 1.5 mL HClO4 (70%) to completely digest 0.5 g of roasted coffee samples. Recoveries of metals in the spiked samples varied from 90 to 110%. Analysis of variance revealed significant differences in the concentrations of Ca, Co, Cu, Mn, Cr, Ni and Zn with the variation of coffee beans geographic origin. Pearson correlation coefficients indicated high positive correlation among some metals and high negative correlation among others. The amounts of metals that a person can get from two cups of coffee are well below the daily recommended values and drinking two cups of coffee is safe for an adult person and free from the risks of Cd and Pb toxicity. KEY WORDS: Metals content, Roasted coffee, Indigenous coffee varieties, Ethiopia Bull.

  • Removal of heavy-metals from wastewater using a hydrous alumino-silicate
           mineral from Kenya

    • Authors: E. W. Wambu, S. Attahiru, P. M. Shiundu, J. Wabomba
      Abstract: Heavy metals’ discharge into the environment continues to pose grave concerns around the world. The efficacy of a hydrous alumino-silicate clay (AlSiM) coming obtained from some regions of Kenya to sorb heavy-metal ions from water has been evaluated in batch tests taking into account changes in adsorbent dose, pH, contact time, and temperature. Complete metal removals, from water containing up to 66 mg/L of Pb(II) was achieved using this material at pH value of 5 over a temperature range of 289–333 K. The adsorption data fitted both the Langmuir and the Dubinin-Radushkevich isotherms with R2 > 0.99. The D-R adsorption energy (−11.7 kJ/mol) indicated that chemisorption was the primary reaction in the adsorption process and the derived ∆G0 value (−7.45 kJ/mol) was consistent with the spontaneity of the adsorption process. The kinetic analyses indicated a film-diffusion and surface-chemisorption controlled process. Verification of the initial results on heavy metals-containing wastewaters obtained from a tannery and a leather processing industries revealed excellent adsorption efficacies of AlSiM for Cr3+ (99−100%), Fe3+ (96−98%), Mn2+ (85−97%) and Zn2+ (78−86%). The use of AlSiM as a plausible low-cost adsorbent for heavy-metal decontamination of industrial effluents has therefore been demonstrated. KEY WORDS: Adsorption, Clays, Dubinin-Radushkevich, Heavy metals, Isotherms, Kinetics, Langmuir, Wastewater Bull.

  • Adsorption of bovine serum albumin onto activated carbon prepared from
           Elaeagnus stone

    • Authors: Ü. Geçgel, O. Üner
      Abstract: In this study, the adsorption of bovine serum albumin was studied using the activated carbon prepared from Elaeagnus stone with chemical activation. Elaeagnus stone activated carbon was characterized using the point of zero charge, Fourier transform infrared spectra, Brunauer-Emmet-Teller method, scanning electron microscopy, and elemental analysis. The BET surface area of Elaeagnus stone activated carbon obtained by using 30% ZnCl2 (w/w) was determined to be 1588 m2/g. The effects of adsorbent dosages, contact time, initial bovine serum albumin concentrations, temperature and pH on the adsorption were investigated. The optimum values of adsorbent dosage, pH, and contact time were determined to be 1 mg/mL, 5, and 160 min for 500 mg/L BSA concentration, respectively. Additionally, the studies of adsorption equilibrium and kinetics were performed. The best fitting model from the experimental data was determined to be Langmuir model and the adsorption follows a pseudo-first-order kinetic model. KEY WORDS: Elaeagnus stone, Bovine serum albumin, Adsorption, Activated carbon Bull.

  • Health risk assessment of heavy metals via consumption of spinach
           vegetable grown in Elalla River

    • Authors: F. Gebreyohannes, A. Gebrekidan
      Abstract: Water pollution with heavy metals due to discharge of untreated domestic wastes and surface runoff to the rivers is a major threat for human health that consumes vegetables grown with the polluted river. The present study aimed to examine the contamination of heavy metals through the health risk assessment via the consumption of spinach vegetable grown by the irrigation of Elalla River. Water from Elalla River, soil and spinach were analyzed for Fe, Zn, Cu, Pb, Cr and Cd using FAAS. Based on the elements analyzed, TF, DIM and HRI were calculated. The elements Cr (0.18-0.60) and Cd (0.021-0.023) in water samples (mg/L), Zn (316.10-517.86) and Cd (16.00-16.80) in soil samples(mg/kg); and Fe (483.38-612.24), Zn (109.86-219.72), Pb (2.56-3.97), Cr (8.42-13.45) and Cd (1.62-1.91) in spinach (mg/kg) were exceeded the permissible limits set by FAO and Ewers and Weigert. The TF calculated were lower for all metals except for Pb (2.832). Although the HRI values of all studied heavy metals were found to be < 1, the values for Cd and Pb were higher indicating alarming condition for the long term use of spinach in the studied area. Therefore, regular monitoring of heavy metals is essential to prevent excessive build up in the food chain and prevent serious health risk of population. KEY WORDS: Vegetables, Metal accumulation, Daily intake of metals, Health risk index, Human health Bull.

  • Synthesis and characterization of nanocomposite NiFe2O4@SalenSi and its
           application in efficient removal of Ni(II) from aqueous solution

    • Authors: N. Babadi, H. Tavakkoli, M. Afshari
      Abstract: In this work, nano ferrite spinel NiFe2O4 was synthesized by sol-gel method and characterized by SEM, XRD, FT-IR, and VSM. In second step Schiff base made from salicylaldehyde and amino propyl triethoxy silane was used for modification of the synthesized nano ferrit. In the third step removal of Ni(II) was done using modified adsorbent and 95% efficiency was achieved. The removal rate was determined by atomic absorption spectroscopy. These studies showed that the Freundlich isotherm model was fitted well with adsorption data. Moreover, the pseudo-second order kinetic model was fitted very well with experimental data. The results demonstrated that NiFe2O4@SalenSi nanoadsorbent can be used for the removal and recovery of metal ions from wastewater over a number of cycles, indicating its suitability for the design of a continuous process.               KEY WORDS: Nano ferrite, Sol-gel method, Schiff base, Removal of Ni(II), Magnetic nanocomposite Bull.

  • Synthesis of new nano Schiff base complexes: X-ray crystallography,
           thermal, electrochemical and anticancer studies of nano uranyl Schiff base

    • Authors: F. D. Firuzabadi, Z. Asadi, R. Yousefi
      Abstract: This study presents synthesis and characterization of new nano uranyl Schiff base complexes. Electrochemistry of these complexes showed a quasireversible redox reaction without any successive reactions. Furthermore, X-ray crystallography exhibited that beside the coordination of tetradentate Schiff base, one solvent molecule (dimethylformamide) was also coordinated. According to Coats-Redfern plots the kinetics of thermal decomposition of the studied complexes was first-order in all stages. Anticancer activities of the uranyl Schiff base complexes against cancer cell lines (Jurkat) was studied and determined by MTT (3-[4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl]-2,5-diphenyltetrazoliumbromide) assay. The results demonstrated that the complexes with aliphatic bridging units showed less anticancer activities than those having the aromatic units.               KEY WORDS: Uranyl Schiff base complex, Anticancer activities, Thermal studies, Electrochemistry; X-ray crystallography Bull.

  • Synthesis, characterization and photocatalytic activity of
           Mn2O3/Al2O3/Fe2O3 nanocomposite for degradation of malachite green

    • Authors: N. R. Habib, A. M. Taddesse, A. Temesgen
      Abstract: A Mn2O3/Al2O3/Fe2O3 nanocomposite photocatalyst was prepared by a co-precipitation method. Flame atomic absorption spectroscopy (FAAS), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscope (SEM), and UV–Vis diffuse absorption spectroscopy (UV–Vis DAS) were employed to study elemental composition, functional group identification, structure, morphology, and band gap of the as-synthesized nanocomposite. The highest photodegradation efficiency was recorded for the sample containing the 10/10/80 percentages composition of Mn2O3/Al2O3/Fe2O3, respectively. The average crystallite size calculated from XRD for this sample was 40 nm. UV-Vis diffuse absorbance of the sample showed strong absorption in visible region at 550 nm, which is comparable to Fe2O3 which has absorption at 563.6 nm. This confirmed that coupling with alumina and manganese oxide did not contribute to the band gap narrowing but to delay the electron-hole recombination as witnessed by the highest photodegradation efficiency.               KEY WORDS: Co-precipitation method, Nanocomposite, Photocatalyst, Photodegradation, Malachite green Bull.

           carbonyl}-phenyl)benzamide (HL) and its Co(II), Fe(III), Cu(II) and Zn(II)
           complexes. X-ray crystal structure of HL

    • Authors: R. Khan, A. Tavman, D. Gürbüz, M. Arfan, A. Çinarli
      Abstract: N-(2-{[(2E)-2-(2-hydroxybenzylidene)hydrazinyl]carbonyl}phenyl)benzamide (HL) and its Co(II), Fe(III), Cu(II) and Zn(II) perchlorate complexes were synthesized. The structures of HL and its complexes were confirmed on the basis of elemental analysis and FT-IR, FT-Raman, 1H-NMR spectra. TGA, magnetic moment and molar conductivity measurements were carried out for the complexes. In addition, the crystal structure of HL was determined by X-ray diffraction at room temperature. It crystallizes in the monoclinic, space group C2/c and Z=4. HL has an interesting structure due to the presence of two intramolecular hydrogen bonds. It behaves as a bidentate ligand through the C=N nitrogen and OH oxygen atoms in its chelate complexes that they have 1:2 M:L (metal:ligand) ratio. The Fe(III), Cu(II) and Zn(II) complexes, [Fe(HL)(L)(H2O)2](ClO4)2, [Cu(HL)2](ClO4)2∙3H2O, [Zn(HL)2](ClO4)2·H2O are 2:1 electrolytes whereas the Co(II) complex, [Co(HL)(L)(H2O)]ClO4·H2O, is 1:1 electrolyte according to the molar conductivity data.               KEY WORDS: Hydrazine, Hydroxybenzylidene, Benzamide, Metal Complexes, Crystal Structure Bull.

  • Chemical constituents and antioxidant activities of the fruits extracts of
           Piper capense

    • Authors: E. Debebe, T. Dessalegn, Y. Melaku
      Abstract: The fruits of P. capense from Ethiopia were hydro-distilled with Clevenger apparatus to furnish 2.6-2.8% yellowish oil which was analyzed with GC–MS. Results of the GC-MS analysis revealed the presence of twenty one components with the major ones are β-caryophyllene (5%), g-muurolene (7.22%), germacrene D (9.30%), dihydroxy-isocalamendiol (11.6%), and cis-muurola-3,5-diene (15.6%). The fruits were also successively extracted with n-hexane and EtOAc to give 1.3% and 2.3% yield on dry weight basis, respectively. The EtOAc extract was screened for the presence of secondary metabolites which showed the presence of alkaloids, phenols, steroids, flavonoids, saponins and terpenoids while tannin was not detected.  The EtOAc extract after silica gel column chromatography resulted in the isolation of 5-hydroxy-7,4’-dimethoxyflavone. The DPPH radical scavenging activity of the EtOAc extract, essential oil and 5-hydroxy-7,4’-dimethoxyflavone were evaluated and found to inhibit DPPH radical by 78%, 70% and 84% at 100 µg mL-1, respectively. Likewise, the EtOAc extract, essential oil and 5-hydroxy-7,4’-dimethoxyflavone inhibited peroxidation of lipid by 74, 64 and 80%, respectively. The results are significant compared to ascorbic acid used as positive control suggesting the use of the fruit of P. capense as a natural antioxidant.               KEY WORDS: Piper capense, DPPH, Ferric thiocyanate, 5-hydroxy-7,4’-dimethoxyflavone Bull.

  • Polymethylhydrosiloxane reduction of carbonyl function catalysed by
           titanium tetrachloride

    • Authors: N. D. Jumbam, S. Makaluza, W. Masamba
      Abstract: Reduction of aromatic aldehydes and ketones into the corresponding methylene derivatives by polymethylhydrosiloxane in the presence of titanium tetrachloride as catalyst was achieved in good to excellent yields ranging from 55-90%. The reaction took place under relatively mild conditions and smoothly led to the desired target molecules in the presence of other functional groups such as halogens, hydroxyl, nitro and methoxy groups. However, in the reduction of the substrate with two methoxy groups in close proximity (1,2-positions), the reaction necessitated a larger amount of the titanium catalyst and a longer reaction time to complete the reduction of the carbonyl function due to a likely complex formation of titanium tetrachloride with the methoxy groups.               KEY WORDS: Carbonyl reduction, Polymethylhydrosiloxane, Titanium tetrachloride, Catalyst, Hydride transfer Bull.
