Experimental Investigation of Nanostructured Tube by Accumulative Tube Bonding as a Novel Severe Plastic Deformation Process

Mohan Ganpatrao Bodkhe, Sanjeev Sharma, Pritam Babu Sharma and Abdel-Hamid Ismail Mourad

A novel severe plastic deformation (SPD) process for manufacturing high strength multilayer tubes titled accumulative tube-bonding (ATB) is proposed in this article. By conducting numerous runs of the ATB process, grain refinement as well as mechanical characteristics were investigated experimentally and numerically.

Iron Oxide Nanoparticles Synthesized Using Mentha piperita Extract and Evaluation of Its Antibacterial and Antimigratory Potential on Highly Metastatic Human Breast Cells

Huzaifa Umar, Maryam Rabiu Aliyu and Dilber Uzun Ozsahin
Iron oxide nanoparticles (Fe2O3NPs) stabilized with Mentha piperita obtained from Cyprus were synthesized. The study focused on exploring the anti-migratory potential, cytotoxicity, anti-proliferative and antimicrobial potential of Fe2O3 NPs using wound healing assay, trypan blue, 3-[4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl]-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) and disc diffusion, respectively.

Economical Production of Corrosion and Temperature Shielding Coatings for Deep Water Applications

Patchamatla Satyanarayana Raju, Ajjarapu Venkata Narayana Lakshmi Sharma and Allaka Gopichand

In this study, we present the inexpensive fabrication of titania and silica thin films on an aluminum substrate to enhance corrosion resistance, as well as the ability to reflect infrared radiation and protect the temperature, extending the substrate’s useful life using a sol-gel dip coating approach.

Nanosensor Prototype for Antidepressant Drugs Based on Cytochrome P450 Enzyme

Paola Ghisellini, Eugenia Pechkova, Cristina Rando, Patrizia Garbati, Rosanna Spera, Katia Barbaro, Roberto Eggenhöffner and Stefano Benedicenti

Cytochrome P450 (CYPs) monooxygenases are well-known drug-metabolizing enzymes involved in the metabolism of xenobiotic molecules in animals and plants. Particularly active in drug metabolism are the mammalian liver CYP species, which exhibit broad and overlapping substrate specificity for one another.

Structural Properties and Antibacterial Activity of Zinc Sulfide Nanoparticles

Ftema Waniss Abdalhade Aldbea, Zenab Abdoorhman, Ruqayah Abdulsalam Almahdi, Mabrok Kraini, Nada Abusalah Imrigha, Pramod Kumar Singh and Carlos Vázquez Vázquez

Zinc sulfide (ZnS) nanoparticles powders were prepared using the sol-gel method at pH values of 5, 6, and 7. The samples were treated at 200 °C for 1 h. The X-ray diffraction (XRD) results showed that the samples have a cubic crystal structure.
