  • Effect of acid leaching of bamboo and hardwood chips on kraft pulping and
           pulp bleaching

    • Authors: M Sarwar Jahan, S Islam, M Moniruzzaman, MA Quaiyyum
      Pages: 247 - 252
      Abstract: Acid leaching of chips prior to pulping is a proven method to reduce non-process elements in kraft pulping process. In this paper, acid leaching of bamboo and hardwood chips was carried out at pH 2 for 1h at 80 °C prior to kraft pulping. Calcium removal in acid leaching from wood chips was 52.6% while for bamboo was only 17.4%. Acid leaching also reduced potassium (K) from 1258 mg/kg to 495.7 mg/kg for bamboo and 928 mg/kg to 562.5 mg/kg for wood chips. The effects of acid leaching on pulping, pulp bleaching, and papermaking characteristics were also determined. Acid leaching of both kinds of chips prior to kraft cooking resulted in a significant increase in the rate of delignification. Acid leached chips showed higher screen pulp yield and lower rejects at any kappa number. There was no significant difference of papermaking properties between pulps obtained from acid leached and non-leached chips. Using same ClO2 charge, acid leaching improved pulp brightness by 1% and 1.1% for hardwood and bamboo, respectively. Acid leaching improved pulp viscosity from 10.1 mP.s to 12.1 mP.s for hardwood.Bangladesh J. Sci. Ind. Res. 51(4), 247-252, 2016

  • Simple method for classification of mango varieties on the basis of their
           physicochemical properties by chemometric techniques

    • Authors: MN Uddin, R Ara, M Motalab, ANM Fakhruddin, BK Saha
      Pages: 253 - 260
      Abstract: Nutritional parameters vary significantly among different varieties of mango. It is therefore necessary to have simple method to classify mango pulps according to their nutritional parameters by effective and economic technique. The present study was carried out to develop a method to classify mango varieties by using two chemometric techniques namely, Artificial Neural Network (ANN) and Linear Discrimination Analysis (LDA). At first, 9 physico-chemical parameters have been chosen from 18 of them by applying Factor Analysis (FA), as quantification of each parameter involves time and cost. Nine varieties of mango available in Bangladesh were studied her. LDA can classify the mango pulps on the basis of their nutritional properties 100 percent accurately, and this rate for ANN is 96.3 percent. Therefore, a method is being proposed where mango can be classified with their 9 physico-chemical parameters into their right varieties by LDA. The proposed chemometric method could be used for regular classification of mango pulps at laboratory and mango product manufacturing industries to improve the quality of mango products.Bangladesh J.

  • Zinc stearate from galvanizing waste materials and its use as thermal
           stabilizer in PVC industries

    • Authors: FK Rony, SK Ray, A Hoque, M Asaduzzaman, S Sultana, HP Nur, STA Islam
      Pages: 261 - 270
      Abstract: Galvanizing industries of Bangladesh produce profuse amount of environmentally hazardous solid waste materials like zinc dross which contains significant amount of valuable zinc and harmful heavy lead. Zinc was extracted as zinc chloride (ZnCl2) from zinc dross. Zinc stearate (ZnSt2) samples were prepared by precipitation method from stearic acid, sodium hydroxide and ZnCl2 by varying the amount of the reagents and product yield found within the range 96.06-99.18%. Characteristic peaks of ZnSt2 were investigated by Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC) onset curve assigned accurate melting point within the range 122.84-124.03°C. Surface morphology of ZnSt2 was observed by Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and products had semi-crystalline structure. Thermal stability of ZnSt2 was evaluated by Thermo-gravimetric Analyzer (TGA) that complied with literature. A combination of ZnSt2 and Calcium stearate (CaSt2) at 1:1 ratio was used as thermal stabilizer in the powder commercial grade PVC resin and performed better thermal stability. The dehydrochlorination temperature of PVC with mixed stearates was 344.67±1.04°C for 10% (w/w) loading whereas for PVC, PVC with 10% (w/w) ZnSt2 and PVC with 10% (w/w) CaSt2, it was 269.83±1.04°C, 317.33±1.26°C and 323.33±2.08°C respectively.Bangladesh J.

  • Biotransformation of major ginsenoside Rb1 to pharmacologically active
           ginsenoside Rg3 through fermentation by Weissella hellenica DC06 in newly
           developed medium

    • Authors: MA Huq, SK Akter, Yeon Ju Kim, Mohamed El Agamy Farh, Deok Chun Yang
      Pages: 271 - 278
      Abstract: The study was conducted to develop an edible and low cost growth medium for cultivation of Weissella hellenica DC06, a lactic acid bacteria (LAB) and to study whether, the medium is suitable for bioconversion of major ginsenoside Rb1 into ginsenoside Rg3 through fermentation by W. hellenica DC06. Fourteen different media compositions were investigated to cultivate W. hellenica DC06. Among these, W. hellenica DC06 exhibited the highest growth in media containing 20 g/l radish, 20 g/l glucose, and 10 g/l yeast extract (Medium 3). The optical density of W. hellenica DC06 cultivated in medium 3 reached 1.8 (1.066 x 1010 CFU/ml) after 24 h of incubation. Importantly, the optimized medium was approximately four times cheaper compared to MRS medium. In addition to being economical, the new medium was also edible. Also W. hellenica DC06 showed strong fermentation ability in newly developed medium regarding on major ginsenoside Rb1 biotransformation. Ginsenoside Rb1 was converted into pharmacologically active ginsenoside Rg3 in new medium. In contrast,W. hellenica DC06 showed weak fermentation ability in MRS medium where ginsenoside Rb1 was converted intoginsenoside Rd. The transformation products were analyzed by TLC, and HPLC. Within seven days of fermentation, almost all ginsenoside Rb1 was decomposed and converted into Rg3 in optimized medium. W. hellenica DC06 hydrolyzed two glucose moieties attached to the C-20 position of the ginsenoside Rb1aglyconeand synthesized Rg3 in newly developed medium.Bangladesh J. Sci. Ind.

  • Removal of Pb and Zn from industrial effluent using humic acid

    • Authors: A Parvin, S Hoque
      Pages: 279 - 284
      Abstract: The present work was conducted to remove Pb and Zn from industrial effluents by coagulating the ions with humic acids. Seven types of effluents were collected from textile, tannery and pharmaceutical industries. Two commercially available humic acids one in a liquid state and another one in a semi-solid state, humic acid extracted from peat were used to remove Pb and Zn from industrial effluents as well as synthetic waste water. Optical property, carbon concentration and coagulation threshold of humic acids were studied. Same carbon concentration (1 x 10-5 g L-1) of all the sources was maintained at neutral pH. The values of water soluble Pb and Zn in effluents were 0.000 - 0.0711 μg/mL and 0.002 - 0.024 μg/mL, respectively. Results indicated that liquid humic acid having E4: E6 ratio of 1.2 removed 100% Pb and Zn only from pharmaceutical effluent whereas humic acid extracted from peat having E4: E6 ratio of 3.18 completely (100%) removed these metals from pharmaceutical and tannery effluents. Semi-solid humic acid having the lowest E4: E6 ratio of 1.07 did not form coagulation with the metals. The performance of humic acid extracted from peat was better than that of commercially available humic acids. Bangladesh J. Sci. Ind. Res. 51(4), 279-284, 2016

  • Yield and yield components of Arachis hypogaea L. as influenced by NPK
           chemical fertilizers, farm yard manure and gypsum

    • Authors: Thayamini H Seran
      Pages: 285 - 290
      Abstract: Field trials were conducted to evaluate the effect of chemical fertilizers, farmyard manure (FYM) and gypsum on yield and yield components of groundnut (Arachis hypogea L.). There were nine treatments included unfertilized treatment and full doses of recommended NPK fertilizers (65:100:75 kg/ha) or reduced doses of recommended NPK fertilizers (30:50:37.5 kg/ha) and FYM@10 t/ha in combination with different levels (0, 150, 300 and 450 kg/ha) of gypsum. The results exhibited that full dose of NPK fertilizers with 300 kg/ha gypsum treatment gave significantly (P<0.05) higher seed yield (2777.28 kg/ha) than the full dose of NPK fertilizers alone (typical control) which had 2276.05 kg/ha. On the other hand, application of reduced dose of NPK fertilizers + 10 t/ha FYM with 450 kg/ha gypsum resulted 2609.88 kg/ha seed yield followed by 300 kg/ha gypsum application which had 2521.98 kg/ha and both values were statistically similar. Thus, use of 300 kg/ha gypsum could give high seed yield of groundnut with full dose of NPK fertilizers alone or reduced dose of NPK fertilizers and 10 t/ha FYM. However, combined application of organic and inorganic fertilizers is better practice especially on sandy regosol when considering human and soil health.Bangladesh J. Sci. Ind.

  • Effect of magnesium-salts on hydrogen peroxide bleaching of non-wood pulps

    • Authors: N Das, SK Bose, D Biswas
      Pages: 291 - 296
      Abstract: Transition metal ions present in pulp, cause wasteful decomposition of hydrogen peroxide, a pulp brightener, and thus significantly affect the delignification selectivity of hydrogen peroxide bleaching. The metal ions also affect the brightness and optical properties of pulp. The free radicals generated during the decomposition degrade carbohydrates resulting in lower viscosity and yield. It is reported in the literature that magnesium sulfate successfully adsorbs transition metal ions and thus decrease their activity. This study dealt with the effect of Mg salts in hydrogen peroxide bleaching of jute caddies pulp. It was observed that prior bleaching treatments like chelation and acid washing of pulp were efficient in removing transition metal ions as indicated by lower consumption of hydrogen peroxide. However EDTA chelation seemed better compared to acid washing. The inclusion of Mg salts improved pulp brightness. The pulp viscosity was the highest with 0.3% Mg addition for both treated kraft and soda-AQ pulps. Considering both pulp viscosity and pulp brightness, it appeared that a 0.3% Mg dose on EDTA chelated pulp, was enough in hydrogen peroxide bleaching of pulps obtained from jute caddies. Bangladesh J.

  • Simultaneous determination of furosemide and spironolactone in
           pharmaceutical formulations by spectrophotometric method using principal
           component regression

    • Authors: SS Israt, MN Uddin, RA Jahan, MM Karim
      Pages: 297 - 306
      Abstract: The combination of furosemide (furo) and spironolactone (spiro) is very effective in the treatment of heart failure. In that case, maintaining good quality of these drugs in commercial tablets is must. Therefore, a simple, economical, precise and accurate method, i.e; chemometric assisted UV spectroscopy, for simultaneous determination of furosemide and spironolactone in combined dosage form has been developed. In this study, principal component regression (PCR) has been reported for this purpose. A calibration set of 36 mixture solutions containing furosemide and spironolactone in methanol in the concentration range of 2.0-12.0 μg/ml and 5.0-30.0 μg/ml respectively has been prepared by means of an orthogonal experimental design. The absorbance data for the concentration set have been obtained by direct measurement in UV spectrophotometer at 101 wavelength points in the spectral region of 200-300 nm for the zero order spectra. The chemometric technique is also successfully applied to available pharmaceutical formulations, tablets, with no interference from excipients. The analytical performances of principal component regression are characterized by relative prediction errors and recoveries (%). The good recoveries obtained in this case proved that the proposed chemometric technique could be applied efficiently in the quality control of the studied drugs simultaneously in their mixture as well as in the commercial dosage form with satisfactory precision and accuracy as alternative analysis tools.Bangladesh J.

  • Variation of morphological and chemical properties of three varieties of
           jute stick

    • Authors: M Mostafizur Rahman, S Siddiqua, F Akter, M Sarwar Jahan, MA Quaiyyum
      Pages: 307 - 312
      Abstract: Pulp property of a lignocellulosic material depends upon its morphological characteristics and chemical constituents it. Shabuj Pat (CVL-1) variety from Corchorus capsularis and BJRI Tossa Pat 4 (O-72) and BJRI Tossa Pat 5 (O-795) varieties from Corchorus olitorius of jute are mostly grown in Bangladesh. This study deals on morphological and chemical properties of these three varieties of jute stick to assess their suitability for pulp production. The results were significantly differed among the varieties and within the variety. The α-cellulose content was almost the same in the variety of CVL-1 and O-795. In the same variety, the middle portion contained the largest amount of alpha-cellulose and the top portion contained the lowest. Klason lignin content varied from 24.2 to 26.8%. Fibre length was significantly same for all the three jute sticks but the width and slenderness ratios were different. Pulp yield in soda anthraquinone process was nearly the same in all these varieties around 44% at kappa number 15.Bangladesh J. Sci. Ind. Res. 51(4), 307-312, 2016

      Abstract: A study was carried out on taxonomic record and distribution pattern of the freshwater apple snail, Pila glogosa from January 1995 to December 1996 in different waterbodies of Rajshahi University Campus. In total, 27 generic and 21 species names were recorded including the valid name Pila globosa (Swaindon, 1822). The shell of P. gloosa is thick and globose. The spire is not acuminate and shorter than the body whorl. The apple snail was found to occur in tanks, ponds, ditches and irrigated paddy fields of Rajshahi University Campus, Rajshahi. The apple snail prefered littoral zones of ponds and ditches but shore lines of canals and irrigated paddy fields. Aestivation of the apple snsails took place with the total water loss of the habitats.Bangladesh J. Sci. Ind. Res. 51(4), 313-318, 2016
