A series of Eu3+ doped MGd2Si3O10 (M = Mg2+, Ca2+, Sr2+ and Ba2+) was synthesized via sol-gel procedure at 950 oC. The optical characteristics of the materials were studied by Photoluminescence (PL) emission spectra. Upon 395 nm excitation and at 0.03 mole concentration of Eu3+ ion, these nanophosphors display optimum photoluminescence with most intense peak due to 5D07F2 (614-616) of dopant. Powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD) analysis proves that all synthesized materials are of crystalline nature and crystallinity improves on increasing temperature. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) exhibited the spherical shape of particles in 13-30 nm size. Fourier Transformation infrared (FTIR) spectra showed peaks in 400-1000 cm-1 corresponding to gadolinium-oxygen and silicon-oxygen bond vibrations. In BaGd2Si3O10 material, Gd-O vibration is centered at 492 cm-1 and absorption band at 855 cm-1 is result of asymmetric vibrations of SiO in silicate tetrahedral unit. Due to excellent photoluminescence and suitable CIE coordinates, these materials could have brilliant applications in innovative displays.

Research Highlights

  • Series of trivalent europium doped MGd2Si3O10 (M = Mg2+, Ca2+, Sr2+ and Ba2+)fluorescent materials were synthesized successfully with sol-gel procedure.
  • The prepared samples were characterized using Photoluminescence analysis, X-ray diffraction study, Transmission Electron Microscopic analysis and Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy.
  • The CIE color coordinates values of phosphor confirmed the red color of complex approving the PL results.
  • X-ray diffraction pattern of these materials determined the particle size using Debye Scherrer’s equation.
  • Excellent photoluminescence response and nano size of these materials made them suitable for various innovative display applications.

Keywords: Food packaging, Nanoclay, Biodegradable, PVA, Starch

In this research work, we have synthesized blend of starch/PVA/nanoclay via solution cast method. The composition of blend was starch and PVA in 1:1 ratio by weight with citric acid as plasticizer. The amount of nanoclay was varied between 0.5 to 2 wt%. The structure elucidation of the film by Scanning electron microscopy reveals homogeneous dispersion of nanoclay into polymer matrix. The biodegradation of the films were studied by soil burial method and enzymatic hydrolysis and it was found that completely biodegradable films were produced which could serve as potential candidate for food packaging.

Keywords: Phyto-medicine, Hydrophilicity, Nanocarriers, Drug Delivery

The recent technological advancement in nanotechnology has opened new avenues for research and development in the field of phyto-medicine. Development of reliable and eco-friendly synthesis of nanoparticles is a significant advancement for introduction nanotechnology to develop noble nanomedical delivery system of herbs (HNMDS), and have to overcome the downsides of old-style herbs-medicines delivery through analyzing the interactions between nanocarriers and herbs or phyto-medicine. The application of nanotechnological methods for bioavailability and biocompatibility enhancement of phyto-medicine must be reviewed and need urgent prompt efforts to develop new formulations. Nanotechnology enables the combination of hitherto separate approaches to health care by permitting the realization of so-called ’theranostic’ applications, as well as targeted combination products. Formulation must also release active ingredient from phyto-formulation as developing nano dosage forms has number of benefits for phyto-medicine. This review discusses nano sized herbs-nanomedicines delivery carries and potential current and futuristic advances for enhancing the activity and overcoming problems associated with herbal medicines for novel HNMDS.
