1. TWO NEW LACTONES AND A SESQUITERPENOID FROM THE FRUITS OF TERMINALIA CATAPPA

Authors: RANAJIT K SUTRADHAR , ABDULLAH AL MASUM

Abstract: Two new lactones (1-2) along with a sesquiterpenoid 3 have been isolated from the chloroform extract of the fruits of Terminalia catappa. The structures of the isolated compounds were established by chemical and spectroscopic methods including IR, 1H NMR, and 13C NMR and Mass spectroscopy. The originality of this study lies in the fact that the lactones and terpenoid were reported for the first time from the fruits of Terminalia catappa

Keywords: Terminalia catappa, combretaceae, isolation, characterization, lactone, terpenoid

2. ANALYSIS OF FOOD SALTS, THEIR BENEFITS IN HEALTH

Authors: AJITHA PRIYA JAMMALA , AZZA SALIM AL-MAAWALI , JAWAHER NASSER AL-KHAMISI , NAHLA MOHMMED AL-SALMI

Abstract: Humans cannot live without salt as it brings out the flavor in foods. It is also a fact that salt is present almost everywhere inside our body, where it is both a requirement and a nourishment for certain cellular activities. This paper focuses two areas of studies: the analysis of different food salts and their benefits in health. The samples salts are collected from different regions. The analysis part included solubility of food salts in water at various temperature, pH of food salts, conductivity of food salts, determination of the amount of Na+ ion, I- ion and Cl- ion, the moisture content of food salts. The results obtained from the antimicrobial properties, vitamin C content, fermentation of yeast, rehydration solution experiments confirmed the benefits of various food salts in human health.

Keywords: Different food salts, properties, benefits.

3. ASSESSING THE BIOPRINTABILITY OF SELF-ASSEMBLING PEPTIDE BIOINKS IN TERMS OF STRUCTURE FIDELITY AND CELL VIABILITY

Authors: CHARLOTTE A. E. HAUSER , DANA ALHATTAB , FRANCESCA MELLE , KOWTHER KAHIN

Abstract: Organ donor shortage as well as an increasing demand for personalized medicine have opened up new avenues in tissue engineering. As 3D bioprinting may provide promising solutions, bioinks of different compositions are being developed to serve bioprinting needs. As for the development of suitable bioinks, certain challenges and limitations still exist including: The use of inorganic, unnatural or undefined natural materials, UV and chemical crosslinking for gelation, and fidelity of 3D structures. Self-assembling peptides boast an advantage of resembling human-like materials and activating instantaneous gelation. In this paper, ultrashort peptides are used for 3D bioprinting. The printed scaffolds are analyzed for structure fidelity, cell viability, and proliferation. The results are compared with commercial Biogelxâ„¢ peptide bioinks as a benchmark. Our custom-designed robotic 3D bioprinter is used and compared with the commercial Inkredible+ bioprinter. Our results prove the bioprinta

4. DEVELOPMENT OF PLASTIC-BIOFIBER COMPOSITE

Authors: EMMANUEL BAFFOUR-AWUAH , STEPHEN AKINLABI , TIEN-CHIEN JEN

Abstract: The use and applications of plastics have brought in its wake unpredictable and undesirable trail of waste and consequential sanitation and waste management and sanitation challenges. Polyethylene has not been spared of this conundrum considering the fact that it is the material used to package water, popularly referred as ‘pure water’ in most West African counties, including Ghana. Substantially large amounts of palm fruit fiber waste find their way into landfills and incinerators also creating waste management problems. To help reduce the environmental, sanitation and waste management challenges associated with waste sachet water polyethylene and palm fruit fiber there is the need to strategically deal with the situation from long term perspective. This paper proposes a technique for developing composite material using waste polyethylene and palm fruit fiber. It is expected that, generally, characterized composites so designed using the proposed technique will find invaluable app
