SYNTHESIS AND CHARACTERIZATION OF GRAPHENE-USNIC ACID CONJUGATE MICROSPHERES AND ITS ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY AGAINST STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS
In response to the spacious propagation of bacterial contamination stimulated by pathogens, the evolution of novel therapeutics with eminent antibacterial action is of avid concern. When the skin unity is ruptured accidentally or intentionally, its natural defenses will thus be vitiated, and topical medication may be prescribed. Topical medicaments are designed to either obliterate or inhibit the ...
An alternative energy sources using the sweet orange (Citrus sinensis (L.) waste as the feedstock was investigated; this is an approach to environmental protection. The extraction of pectin from sweet orange peel waste (pith) and the production of ethanol from the resultant liquid pectin with the aid of Escherichia coli (E. coli) and Saccharomyces cerevisiae (yeast) were carried out. Dried pith wa...
