The size-dependent chemistry of nanomaterials and consequent controlled and designed synthesis of smart materials with desired end application has provided us a number of new products which are already making impact on quality of human life. The fundamental nano paradigm shift would influence future research advances in field of nanoscience chemistry, ranging from drug delivery to exquisite designs of novel catalysts that drive innovations in chemical synthesis and transformations. The nanoscience is an interdisciplinary field that will see increased role in the diverse and emerging newer areas like artificial intelligence; nanochemistry would help speed up the development of applications in the real world with artificial intelligence.</p> Bhupender S.

CNT-PANI-PPy film formed a biocompatible environment to entrap enzyme molecule and used as biosensor for pesticide detection. This study shows that enzyme based conductive polymer nanocomposite film itself acts as a mediator. Carbon nanotubes promote electron transfer reactions in presence of Acetythiocholine chloride (ATCl) as a substrate at a lower potential and catalyzed the electrochemical oxidation of enzymatically formed thiocholine. Surface morphology was studied by scanning electron microscopy which shows a porous structure of the modified film beneficial for enzyme immobilization. Electrochemical behavior of the fabricated electrodes evaluated through cyclic voltammetry and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. The detection of pesticide (acephate) was performed by chronoamperometry and the limit of detection (LOD) of acephate was found to be 0.007 ppm concentration which is quite low.</p> Priyanka D Virutkar, Ashish P Mahajan, Bhavna H Meshram, Subhash B.

Silver nanoparticles were synthesized by chemical reduction of silver nitrate using hydrazine hydrate as reducing agent and polyvinyl alcohol as stabilizing agent. It is coated over cotton cloth by ultrasonication method. The anti-microbial efficacy has been studied by inhibition zone assay and agar plate count assay against gram negative bacteria. The longevity of anti-bacterial property of clothes has also been determined by checking its bactericidal effect after washing the cloth several times by Ezee brand liquid soap.</p> Geeta Saini, Kajal Thakur, M Divya Gnaneswari ##submission.copyrightStatement## Wed, 20 Feb 2019 00:00:00 +0530
