ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
It gives me great pleasure to acknowledge the guidance of Prof. Dr. (Mrs.) Z.R. Turel M.Sc., Ph.D., D.Sc., M.D., under whom I completed this dissertation. Although I’m a student of biology, I opted for a topic which is border-line of chemistry and biology, that is on environment. I’m very happy to say that during this tenure of work, I have learnt a lot of chemistry which would not have been possible except for her guidance. The benefits of working with her are many and all of them are learning processes. In the preparation of this dissertation, her contribution is praise-worthy and she was always very serious about the perfection of the work. I sincerely thank her for all her efforts and I’m sure she will continue to help me in my progress in future. Thanks are due to Dr. Aparna Khanna, Dean, School of Science, NMIMS University, for her constant encouragement and support and also Dr. Dhananjaya Saranath for her suggestions during the PMC presentation. Thanks are also due to Dr. Purvi Bhatt and Mrs. Deepali Kothekar for their helpful suggestions which have been taken notice of and incorporated into the text. My sincere gratitude to Dr. K.V. Mangaonkar, Principal, Mithibai College, who immediately agreed and permitted me to use the facilities of the chemistry laboratory of the college. Working in this laboratory itself was an experience. Thanks are also due to my colleagues in the laboratory for their constant encouragement and help in matters in big and small. To the Class III and Class IV staff of Mithibai College, my sincere thanks and appreciation for making things easy for my work with their spontaneous co-operation. To my dear parents and family, who always stood by me when things were difficult and gave me their undying support, my heartfelt thanks....
