Electrochemical, Spectrochemical and Quantum Chemical Studies on Dimedone as Corrosion Inhibitor for Copper in Acetonitrile | Chapter 09 | Advances in Applied Science and Technology Vol. 3

A number of techniques have been applied in the investigation of inhibition abilities of dimedone (DMD) for copper in acetonitrile at 25°C. By potentiodynamic polarization and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), the corrosion resistance was found to be increased with inhibitor concentration up to 93.68% inhibition efficiency at 3.00 mM, indicating that DMD molecules can cumulatively adsorb on the copper surface and finally form a protective film on copper-solution interface. This is also supported by the decreasing of copper oxidation in cyclic voltammogram. Polarization curves revealed that DMD is of mixed type inhibitor.

The adsorption of DMD on copper surface obeys the Langmuir isotherm and the adsorption mechanism is of physisorption type. The values of standard energy of adsorption (∆Goads) were found to be in good agreement for both polarization and impedance techniques to be -8.17 and -8.43 kJmol-1 respectively. Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) confirmed the interaction of copper with oxygen on DMD. The mole ratio method suggested that the complexation ratio of copper-DMD is 1:2. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) of copper surface after immersion in DMD solution indicates the presence of a protective layer on the electrode surface. The frontier molecular orbital energy EHOMO (highest occupied molecular orbital), ELUMO (lowest unoccupied molecular orbital) and the Mulliken charge distribution obtained from Quantum chemical calculations revealed (∆E) for DMD 0.2091 hartree, reflecting strong adsorption of the molecules on copper surface. The enhanced corrosion inhibition is possibly due to the compact film structure blocking electron transfer at the electrode surface. This provides a typical example in understanding the system as well as interpretation of the data by both traditional and advanced technology to support the newly coming technology which would make science much more fruitful.

Consensus Summit: Lipids and Cardiovascular Health in the Nigerian Population | Chapter 09 | Current Trends in Food Science Vol. 1

Aims: To issue a consensus statement on Lipids and Cardiovascular Health and the impact of their interrelationship in Nigerian Population. Study Design: Experts from a range of relevant disciplines, deliberated on different aspects of Lipids and Cardiovascular Health in the Nigerian Population at a Summit. Place and Duration of Study: The Summit was held in April 2016 at the Nigerian Institute of Medical Research. Methodology: Presentations were made on central themes after which expert participants split into four different groups to consider the questions relevant to different sub themes of the title. Consensus was arrived at, from presentations of groups at plenary. Conclusion: With the increase in the prevalence of NCDs, especially Cardiovascular Disease in Nigeria, and the documented evidence of deleterious effects of lipids, the expert panel called for an urgent need to advocate for the general public and health professionals to make heart-friendly

A Review on Gongronema latifolium, an Extremely Useful Plant with Great Prospects | Chapter 11 | Recent Advances in Biological Research Vol. 3

Gongronema latifolium is a plant that has a wide range of nutritional and ethnomedical uses in different tropical African communities. Scientific reports on the chemical composition and bioactivity (anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antidiabetic, antioxidant, anticancer and allelopathic properties) of the plant material by different authors are discussed in this review.

An Overview of Ultrasonic Technology and Its Applications in Food Processing, Preservation and Quality Control | Chapter 03 | Current Research in Science and Technology Vol. 3

Ultrasound is one of the emerging technologies that were developed to minimize processing, maximize quality and ensure the safety of food products. In recent years, ultrasound technology has been used as an alternative processing option to conventional thermal approaches. Although Ultrasonication methods have been used for years in research and diagnostics, major advances have been made in the last decade. The applications for which high power ultrasound can be used range from existing processes that are enhanced by the retrofitting of high power ultrasonic technology, to the development of processes up to now not possible with conventional energy sources. The present paper reviews the generation, principle mechanism, properties, process parameters, applications, merits and demerits and future trends of the ultrasound technology in the food processing.
