Soni suyogsoni1988@gmail.com Vikram R. Jadhav suyogsoni1988@gmail.com Tushar A. Kere suyogsoni1988@gmail.com <p>A successful series of CuxZn<sub>1-x</sub>O (variable x = 0.05, 0.1, 0.15 and 0.2) were characterized by thermogravimetric (TG-DTA), Fourier Transform Infra-Red (FTIR) spectroscopy, and X-ray Diffraction (XRD) techniques. The photocatalytic activity of prepared samples was accurately assessed by the photocatalytic decomposition of LASER dye in an aqueous solution under irradiation of solar light and was compared favourably to non-dope commercially available ZnO photo-catalyst. The effect of various parameters like the amount of a catalyst, the calcination temperature on photocatalytic activity is also studied. The direct effect of various photosensitizing salts like NaCl, Na2CO<sub>3</sub>, and Na<sub>2</sub>S<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub> on photocatalytic activity of ZnO and Cu<sub>0.05</sub>Zn<sub>0.95</sub>O was carefully studied.</p> 2018-09-06T00:00:00+0530 Copyright (c) 2018 Journal of Chemistry, Environmental Sciences and its Applications https://jce.chitkara.edu.in/index.php/jce/article/view/3 Density Functionalized Drug-Surfactant Interaction of Aqueous SDS-Tartrazine 2019-06-11T10:17:57+0530 J M Mir mirjanmohammad@gmail.com F A Itoo firchm@gmail.com <p>Study of molecular density theory is considered nowadays as a powerful tool to speculate various physical and chemical properties of materials. Herein, we report the theoretical inference of associated changes in chemical properties of sodium dodecyl sulphate and tartrazine when allowed to go through pre- and post-micellization phenomena. Because of the involvement of the two compounds in manifold industrial applications, the study reflects some important conclusions of drug-surfactant chemistry. The computational work involves the use of Polarizable Continuum Model (PCM), water as solvent and 631g(d,p) basis set with B3LYP as functional. Each molecule was run individually first to arrive at an optimized structure followed by a final optimization of assumed network (mesh of proposed binary mixture) to visualize the changes that occur on combination. Each set of energy minimal calculation was then run for frequency calculation, electronic spectral evaluation and molecular natural population analysis. Molecular electrostatic potential surfaces were discussed in linking the appropriate hydrophobic and hydrophilic interaction.</p> 2018-09-06T00:00:00+0530 Copyright (c) 2018 Journal of Chemistry, Environmental Sciences and its Applications
