  • Chemometrics assisted method for classification of mango juice by FTIR
           spectroscopic data

    • Authors: MN Uddin, AK Majumder, S Ahamed, BK Saha, B Mumtaz
      Pages: 73 - 80
      Abstract: Commercial mango juices are adulterated with heavy use of simple sugars in Bangladesh which poses a serious threat to public health. The present study is aimed to develop chemometrics assisted method for classification of commercial mango juices as adulterated or not with excessive use of glucose, fructose and sucrose with FTIR spectral data. Two statistical techniques, Artificial Neural Network (ANN) and Partial Least Squares-Discriminant Analysis (PLS-DA) have been assessed for their efficiencies in classification in this regard. Before calibration, spectral data were preprocessed with de-noising techniques, Savitzky-Golay (S-G) filtering. Concentration of simple sugars were classified as within or over certain limits. Here spectral values of 64 synthetic mixture solutions are used as training data to develop models and 15 spectral data of real mango juice are used as test data. PLS-DA shows better classification performance over lowercase ANN. From the findings, we develop a method for classification of mango juices adulterated with heavy use of simple sugars (glucose, fructose and sucrose). Therefore, it is a simple and cheap method to classify mango juices as adulterated or safe for consumers, manufacturers and quality regulating authorities.Bangladesh J. Sci. Ind.

  • Effects of feeding zooplankton, Moina macrocopa (Straus, 1820) on the
           growth of Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus L.

    • Authors: MR Islam, MR Hassan, M Begum, NJ Punom, MK Begum, N Sultana, MS Rahman
      Pages: 81 - 88
      Abstract: Studies were carried out on the growth performance of Tilapia fry, Oreochromis niloticus cultured with zooplankton, Moina macrocopa in comparison to commercial feed. Three types of feed were used in three treatments where treatment-1 was fed with handmade feed (control), treatment-2 with commercial feed and treatment-3 with live zooplankton M. macrocopa. Thirty fry were stocked in each 60 L aquarium for a rearing period of 56 days. The fishes were fed twice a day at 90-400 Moina/individual fish for first 20 days, then 500-850 Moina/individual fish for 15 days and 900-1250 Moina/individual fish for remaining days. Sampling was done at 14 days interval. The growth performance of M. macrocopa was higher in the treatment fed with Spirulina which was 6350 individuals/ L of water and in the treatment fed with yeast it was 5100 individuals/L of water at 12th days. The study showed that condition factor of tilapia fry found in treatment-3 fed with M. macrocopa was comparatively higher (2.18±0.09) than that of treatment-2 fed with commercial feed (1.86±0.13) at a 56-day culture period. Average daily gain was significantly higher in the treatment-3 fed with M. macrocopa (0.13±0.01) than those of treatment-1 (0.06±0.01) and treatment-2 (0.08±0.01). The best value of feed conversion ratio and specific growth rate was found in treatment-3 fed with M. macrocopa than commercial feed and handmade feed. Protein content was significantly higher (15.91%) in treatment-3 than those of treatment-1 (10.96%) and treatment-2 (11.88%). The findings of this study suggest that growth parameters and body composition of Nile Tilapia was better in treatment-3 fed with M. macrocopa.Bangladesh J. Sci. Ind. Res. 52(2), 81-88, 2017

  • Synthesis and characterization of mixed ligand catecholato-bis
           (diamine-mono-dithiocarbamato) vanadium (IV) complexes

    • Authors: B Begum, A Sarker, AKM Lutfor Rahman, NC Bhoumik
      Pages: 89 - 96
      Abstract: Diamine-mono-dithiocarbamates are mono-basic bidentate ligand forming stable complexes with transition metals. Mixed ligand catecholato-bis (diamine-mono-dithiocarbamato) vanadium (IV) complexes were synthesized and characterized using FT-IR, UV-visible and 1H-NMR spectroscopic techniques. The formation of vanadium complexes was confirmed by the disappearance of υS-H band in the complexes which was present in the ligands and incidence of υV-S and υV-O band in FT-IR spectra of the complexes. The mono-dithiocarbamate with one uncoordinated υNH/NH2 group was indicated by the presence of υN-H vibrational band in both the ligands and complexes. In the 1H-NMR spectra, the peak for –SH proton of ligands disappeared in the complexes suggest the formation of [VL2Cat] complex. Non-electrolytic nature of the synthesized complexes was established by their low molar conductance values. The +4 oxidation state of vanadium was confirmed by the electronic spectra of the complexes. On the basis of all physico-chemical data, a six-coordinated octahedral structure has been suggested for catecholato-bis (diamine-mono-dithiocarbamato) vanadium (IV) complexes.Bangladesh J. Sci. Ind.

  • Nutrition of rice as influenced by reclamation techniques for acid sulfate
           soil in Cox’s Bazar

    • Authors: Md HR Khan
      Pages: 97 - 106
      Abstract: A field experiment was conducted for the reclamation of a Cheringa hot spot of acid sulfate soil manipulated by flash leaching followed by basic slag (BS; BS10 and BS20: basic slag at 10 and 20 t ha-1), aggregate size (A; A20 and A30: aggregate sizes of soil less than 20 and 20-30 mm) treatments under two different techniques (Tech 1: pyrite layer at top, jarosite layer at middle and top soil at the bottom of ridge; Tech 2: top soil at top, pyrite layer at middle and jarosite layer at the bottom of ridge). Nutritional responses to two cultivars of rice with the treatments were evaluated. The initial soil had very low pH (H2O); 3.4, and high EC; 1.6 m S-1, and pyrite content, 76 g kg-1. Magnesium content (5.38 c mol kg-1) of the soil was about 3 fold than that of Ca (1.71 c mol kg-1), and Al content (9.22 c mol kg-1) was at a highly toxic level. The average soil data of all the treatments, except for the control plots after harvesting of rice were increased by 1.5 units for soil pH and 12 to 463% for the contents of N, P, Ca and Mg, while the concentrations of Fe, Al, Na, Cl- and SO4 2- decreased by 27 to 93% compared with the initial soil. The highest N, P, K, Ca, and Mg contents in both the BR 14 and Pizam rice shoots at maturity were obtained by the A20BS30 followed by A20BS20≥A30BS30 treatments. The other treatments also resulted in a significant (p≤0.05) improved performance on plant nutrition compared with the control. The local Pizam exhibited the best responses under the Tech 2 in order of these nutrient uptakes. Sulfur content in the rice plants on control plots was high (1.8-2.1 g kg-1) but it decreased significantly by the different treatments.Bangladesh J. Sci. Ind. Res. 52(2), 97-106, 2017

    • Authors: AJ Adesina, SO Adefemi
      Pages: 125 - 134
      Abstract: The levels of fatty acids, phospholipids and sterols were determined in the samples of Basella alba and Basella rubra commonly consumed  in the South-Western Nigeria by gas chromatography. Results showed that the crude fat levels were 4.40 and 4.41 % in the Basella alba and  Basella rubra samples respectively. The fatty acid composition of Basella alba and Basella rubra samples shows that the SFA was 26.0 and  24.9 %, MUFA was 1.19 and 1.24 % and PUFA was 72.5 and 73.8% respectively. The other quality parameters of Basella alba and Basella  rubra were found: PUFA/SFA, 2.79 and 2.97; MUFA/SFA, 0.046 and 0.050; n-6/n-3, 2.47 and 3.31; LA/ALA, 0.890 and 1.12 and EPSI  (PUFA/MUFA), 60.8 and 59.5 respectively. Phospholipids present in Basella alba and Basella rubra were 1679 and 1920 mg/100g respectively.  In the group of phytosterols, sitosterol was highest with values of 196 mg/100g and 275 mg/100g in Basella alba and Basella rubra samples respectively. Linear correlation at a = 0.05, df: n-1 showed that significant difference exists between the fatty acid, quality parameters of  the fatty acids phospholipids and sterols.Bangladesh J. Sci. Ind.

      Abstract: Bactericidal effect was investigated by chemicals against potato soft rot bacteria in vitro and in storage. The chemicals were acetic acid, boric acid, bleaching powder, lactic acid, calcium hydroxide, calcium chloride, potassium chloride and sodium hypo-chloride. Among eight  chemicals only three chemicals viz. acetic acid, boric acid and bleaching powder showed bactericidal activity against potato soft rot bacteria  Pectobacterium carotovorum subsp. carotovorum (E. carotovora subsp. carotovora) P-138 in vitro. Based on the results of in vitro experiment three chemicals, acetic acid, boric acid and bleaching powder were used to control soft rot disease of potato in storage. Fresh potato tubers were dipped in 0.2% solution/suspensions of acetic acid, boric acid and bleaching powder for 30 min. Then soft rot bacteria Pectobacterium carotovorum subsp. carotovorum P-138 was inoculated on potato. Finally potatoes were stored for 22 weeks in net bags in sterilized condition. All the three chemicals significantly decreased the infection rate, loss in weight and increased percentage of disease reduction (PDR) of potato. Boric acid was the most effective in controlling the soft rot disease of potato in storage followed by acetic acid and bleaching powder. So these chemicals may be used for seed purpose storage of potato tubers for year round storage at farmer’s level.Bangladesh J. Sci. Ind. Res. 52(2), 135-140, 2017

      Abstract: Footwear is a booming sector in Bangladesh. Disposing of process residues from the footwear industries, especially production waste of thermoplastic rubber and polyvinyl chloride soles as well as human used soles is a big concern due to its non-biodegradability. In this work, waste thermoplastic rubber (TPR) and polyvinylchloride (PVC) soles were used as an energy source through the fixed-bed-fire-tube heating pyrolysis to reduce the pollution load. The experiments were performed at varying temperature within the range of 250°C to 450°C at every 100°C interval for each case. In pyrolysis oil, char and gas were produced from the both TPR and PVC soles; temperature increment was created more percentage of oil from the both soles. At same condition TPR sole was produced 12.3% more oil than PVC sole. The pyrolytic oils were made fractional distillation; obtained liquids were relatively greater in volume and low boiling range. The obtained liquids from the fractional distillation were exhibited more light fractions present in the pyrolytic polyvinyl chloride oil (PPVCO) than pyrolytic thermoplastic rubber oil (PTPRO). The process could be optimized for the large scale, which will offer advantages to reduce the environmental impact as well as the production of new product from the waste soles.Bangladesh J. Sci.

      Abstract: Porcelain reinforced polyester resin composites (PPCs) having different compositions have been prepared by compression molding. Thermal properties of PPCs were studied by means of TG-DTA and TMA. The influence of porcelain content on thermal properties of PPCs was studied in detail. Thermal conductivities of PPCs decreased from 0.00068 cal/cm sec°C to 0.00030 cal/cm sec°C by the addition of porcelain from 10 to 60%. The results of this study reveal their good thermal stabilities. The 50% degradation temperature of pure Polyester resin was 401.5°C, but that of the PPC-1, PPC-2 and PPC-4 were 406.3°C, 407.8°C, and 417.3°C respectively. The morphology of the composites was studied with scanning electron microscopy (SEM).Bangladesh J. Sci. Ind. Res. 52(2), 147-152, 2017

  • Determination of vitamin A content from selected Nigerian fruits using
           spectrophotometric method

      Pages: 153 - 158
      Abstract: The vitamin A content of the fresh fruits was determined by the extraction and quantitative determination of the pro-vitamin A carotenoid-β-carotene. The Retinol Equivalent (RE) was then obtained using standard conversion formula. The result indicated that the fruit with the minimum vitamin A content and percentage among the six samples was found in mango 301.61 ± 1.03 (7%), which was followed closely by watermelon 350.12 ± 19.01 (8%), guava 504.1 ± 0.75 (11%), tomato 542.86 ± 20.20 (12%), pawpaw 683.93 ± 5.15 (16%) and the highest content was found in carrot 2054.10 ± 1.28 (46%) in (RE/100 g). Statistical calculations and analysis showed that there was significant difference in vitamin A content among the fruits (p<0.05). Thus, besides major nutrients fruits and vegetables contribute very good amount of micro nutrient-vitamin A from β-carotene.
