A Review on The Fabrication Methods Used in Nano Technology for The Fabrication of Nano Fillers Used in Electrical Apparatuses

In this paper, a wide literature survey was done on the various fabrication methods used for the manufacture of nano fillers used in electrical apparatuses. The important characteristics, advantages, disadvantages of the various fabrication methods used for the manufacture of nano fillers were discussed. The applications of the various fabrication methods used for the manufacture of nano fillers were also discussed. This paper would be helpful for the young scientist and engineers to study about the important fabrication methods used for the manufacture of nano fillers used in the electrical insulation system. This would motivate the young scientist for their research work to invent nano electrical and electronic apparatuses.

Intellectual Capital: A Case Study of Power Loom Using Analytic Hierarchy Process

The purpose of this paper is to identify the critical success factors of IC influencing the performance of power loom textiles, to evaluate their impact on the organizational performance and to find out the effect of these factors on the organizational performance of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Maharashtra using AHP. The methodology adopted is factors are identified through the literature survey and finalization of these factors is done by taking the opinion of Experts in the Indian context. By cognitive map the relation between these factors is determined and cause and effect diagram is prepared. Then these factors are arranged hierarchically and tree diagram is prepared. A questionnaire was designed and distributed among the experts; data is collected. By using Expert choice software data is filled to quantify by pair wise comparison of these factors and are prioritized. The weights demonstrate several key findings: local and global priority reveals there is a substantial effect of the Human capital on the organizational performance. The work related experience contributes 34.21%, which has a greater impact on performance. Operational procedures or practices contribute 52% in order to improve the operational performance and hence organizational performance. Overall, the results showed the central role of the human capital is important. The research is subject to the normal limitations of AHP. The study is using perceptual data provided by Experts which may not provide clear measures of impact factors. However, this can be overcome using more experts to collect data in future studies. Interestingly, the findings here may be generalisable outside Maharashtra, India. AHP as an innovative tool for quantification of IC factors impacting on performance and improving operational and organizational performance in today’s dynamic manufacturing environment. The finding suggests the notion that these IC critical success factors (CSFs) are to be studied carefully and improvement strategy should be developed. Moreover, the study emphasizes the need to link priority of factors to organizational performance and improvement. The study integrates the CSFs of performance and its quantification by using AHP and its effect on performance of power loom textiles. Very few studies have been performed to investigate and understand this issue. Therefore, the research can make a useful contribution.

Effect of Node Movement on DSDV, AODV and DSR

A Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET) is a self-configuring network of mobile nodes connected by wireless links to form an arbitrary topology without the use of existing infrastructure. Each node participating in the network acts both as host and a router and must therefore is willing to forward packets for other nodes. Research in this area is mostly simulation based; Random waypoint is the commonly used mobility model in these simulations. In this paper we have compared the performance of DSDV, AODV and DSR for different node speeds. Experiment results illustrate that performance of the routing protocol varies across mobility and node density.

A Survey of Positivity to 4-Aminoquinoline among Primary, Post Primary and Tertiary Institution Students in Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State, Nigeria

A survey of urine positivity to 4-aminoquinoline was carried out to examine the current status of the chloroquine in the treatment of malaria in Southwestern, Nigeria. Out of 352 students examined 352(61%) were positive using Dill-Glazko test. High occurrence was more among the primary school pupils (68%), than secondary (62%), and tertiary (47%). More female student (61%) used chloroquine than male (55%). Pupils in the age group 6-10years (26%) had the highest occurrence followed by 11-15years (16%), 16-20years (8%), 21-25years (5%), 1-5years (3%) and 26-30years (1%) respectively. Although, newer antimalarial drugs such as Atesunate/Arthemeter, Halofantrin etc have been introduced lately, more people in Ado-Ekiti still prefer Chloroquine for the treatment of malaria. This result of the study suggests that chloroquine is still the first line of drug for the treatment of malaria in Ekiti state, Southwestern Nigeria.

Studies of Newly Synthesized Octahedral Copper Complexes Based on Coumarins Along With Their Antioxidant, Anti-Tubercular And Antimicrobial Activity Evaluation

Some newly heterochelates synthesized by reflux of 3-acetyl 4-hydroxy coumarin, Enrofloxacin and transition metal. 1H, 13C, IR and ESI Mass confirm the formation of ligand. The heterochelates were characterized on the basis of different spectroscopic techniques like IR studies and elemental analysis while the geometry of complexes was octahedral which is confirmed by electronic spectra analysis. The compounds were subjected to antimicrobial, antioxidant and anti-tubercular activity viewing using serial broth dilution method and Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) is determined.

Gravimetric Determination and Antimicrobial Studies of The Co (Ii) With Schiff Bases Derived From Sulphathiazole and 2-Hydroxy, 1-Napthaldehyde

Gravimetric determination of the Co(II) with the 2-hydroxy,1-napthaldehyde Sulphathiazole. The synthesis of metal sulfanilamide compounds has received much attention due to the effective chemotherapeutic agents to be employed for the prevention and cure of bacterial infections in humans. The present works deals with the synthesis and preliminary characteristics of various Schiff bases as ligands. Schiff bases derived by the condensation 2-hydroxy,1-napthaldehyde with Sulphathiazole. After synthesis of such Schiff bases as ligands, Co+2 ion introduced with them by chelation. The chemical and physical properties of metal chelates evaluated. Antimicrobial properties the ligands and metal chelate of 2-hydroxy,1-napthaldehyde Sulphathiazole also evaluated.
