In this paper, we have reported the synthesis of silver and Indium co-doped ZnO nanoparticles at low temperature by sol-gel method were found to have hexagonal structure. This method is simple and cost effective. The crystallite size, structure, elemental composition, surface morphology, UV... Read More

Ce-doped MgO nanopowders were prepared via a chemical coprecipitation method. The as-obtained products were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscope (SEM), Thermo gravimetric and differential thermal analysis (TG-DTA) and UV diffused reflectance spectroscopy (UV DRS). The results show that cerium atoms have been successfully... Read More

Tannery (leather) industries make severe environmental problems particularly in terms of polluting organic effluent and hazardous solid waste as a result of the hides and skin processing. These wastes pose a major challenge to the environment. Hence, it is very important that tannery waste in the form of sludge should be managed in an environmentally sound... Read More

Dyeing of cotton fabric with natural colorants extracted from tea leaves had been investigated. The dyeing process was carried out using different techniques with different solvents and applied on Giza 86 Egyptian cotton fabric using some mordents and gelatin modification. The dyeing properties on cotton fabric had been evaluated and comparative study... Read More

The uncapped and capped CuO nanoparticles were synthesized by sol–gel technique. Triethanolamine (TEA) was used as a capping agent to control the size and morphology of the CuO nanoparticles. The control of nanostructure and hence the optical properties of CuO nanoparticles are consciously achieved by using capping agent. The obtained samples were... Read More
