Durian peel was used for the synthesis of activated carbon used for adsorption of Basic Green 4 dye. Activated carbon was synthesised under either nitrogen (N(2)) atmospheric or vacuum pyrolysis, followed by carbon dioxide (CO(2)) activation. The synthesised activated carbon then was treated with hydrochloric acid (HCl) solution. The results showed that activated carbon synthesised under vacuum pyrolysis exhibited better properties and adsorption capacities than that under nitrogen atmospheric pyrolysis. The HCl treatment improved properties and adsorption capacities of activated carbons. Pseudo-second-order kinetics well described the adsorption of Basic Green 4. PMID:

(I) Effect of different combinations of chloroform and halothane anaesthesia on the recovery time in buffalo calves. (II) Studies on halothane anaesthesia in different combinations in buffalo calves: Buffalo calves anaesthetized with chloroform and maintained on chloroform and oxygen or a mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide showed no variations in the time of recovery of reflexes. Premedication with trifluromazine (fluopromazine) delayed the r...

(II) Effect of temperature on survival of the free-living stages of Ostertagia ostertagi: At 40 deg C the eggs never developed beyond gastrula stage while at 4 deg C only a few of them hatched after an incubation period of 30 days. Between 10 and 35 deg C (optimum 25 deg C), the speed of hatching increased with the rise of temperature....
