Hybrid Nanocomposite Membranes of Poly(vinyl alcohol)  and Cerium Oxide for Pervaporation Dehydration of  Ethanol at their Azeotropic Point
Authors : Mallikarjunagouda B. Patil,


The study reports on the development of hybrid nanocomposite membranes of poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) loaded with metal oxide of cerium oxide (CeO2) nanoparticles in different compositions from 1 to 10 wt. % that are used for pervaporation (PV) dehydration of ethanol at azeotropic point from aqueous mixtures i.e. 4.1 wt. % at 30°C. The PV performance of hybrid nanocomposite membranes were much...

Focal Hole Shifting of Azimuthally Polarized Sinh Gaussian Beam using Cosine Phase Filter
Authors : K. Prabakaran,V. Karthik,K.B. Rajesh,P.M. Anbarasan,V. Aroulmoji,A. Mohamed Musthafa,


Optical intensity distributions in the focal region play an important role in many optical systems. In this paper, the tunable focusing properties of azimuthally polarized sinh Gaussian beams induced by cosine phase masks are investigated theoretically by vector diffraction theory. Results show that when the azimuthally polarized sinh Gaussian beam with cosine phase plate is focused, the focal...

A Review on Productivity and its Effect in Industrial Manufacturing
Authors : Rajesh Shankar Priya,Vincent Aroulmoji,


Productivity is a widely discussed topic in companies and by leaders, as productivity is directly linked to the GDP growth and the quality of life. However, research suggests that Productivity is one of the most ambiguous terminologies that exist. Even though, productivity is closely related to profitability, efficiency and effectiveness, all these terminologies are used in a different context....

Performance of Salt Bridge in Microbial Fuel Cell at Various Agarose Concentrations for Treating Sugar  Industrial Effluent
Authors : V. Sridevi,Shaik Basheerunnisa,P. Venkat Rao,G. Rushi Varma,Devarakonda Pavan Srivatsav,


Microbial Fuel Cell (MFC) is a technology that converts chemical energy into electrical energy with catalytic reaction from microorganism. In this study, sugar mill effluent (SME) was used as the anodic substrate in a double chambered MFC for an application of electricity generation. Salt-bridge is the economic alternative to highly priced proton-exchange membrane in the construction of a...

Biodegradable Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose/Poly (Vinyl alcohol) Blend Membranes as Oxygen Barriers and their Application in Processed Food Packaging
Authors : Mallikarjunagouda Patil,Shewtarani B. Rajamani,M.K Amshumali ,


In the present study, the membranes based on Hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose (HPMC) blended with poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) with blending ratio of 20:80 (w/w) have been prepared. The blend membranes with same composition but with varied thickness were prepared i.e. 45 and 90 μm. The two variant membranes thus prepared were tested for mechanical strength to assess its tolerance. The membranes used...

 Application of Electrocoagulation Technique in Textile Waste Water Treatment: A Review
Authors : Veluru Sridevi,K. Sahithi,V. Sujatha,


Textile waste water generating from dyeing and finishing processes is categorized as high strength waste water due to its strong color and high COD. It is a growing as a major source of environmental pollution. The variability in composition of textile effluent has become hard to treat for conventional treatment processes. Electrocoagulation process can be considered as a reliable, safe and...
