EVALUATION OF THE CONCENTRATION OF SOME METALS (Pb,Zn,Mg,Fe) IN DIETARY RED PALM OIL PRODUCED IN SOME LGA IN ABIA STATE

Palm oil has been part of human diet for more than 5000 years. Nigeria is currently the fifth world’s leading producer of palm oil (Nnorom, 2012). The palm oil industry is a major agro based enterprise in Nigeria especially in the southern part where palm oil trees are found both in the wild land plantations (Nwaugo et al., 2008). For generations, it has been revered as both a nutritious food and a valuable medicine. However, care should be taken to evaluate the purity and safety of this nu...

Protein is an essential nutritional supplement of food that contain may elements of Amino acid CHAPTER ONE1.1 INTRODUCTIONMilk is one of the most nutritious foods. It is rich in high quality protein providing all tenessential amino acids. It contributes to total daily energy intake, as well as essential fatty acids,immunoglobulins, and  other   micronutrients.   Cow’s   milk  is the   predominant   type   in  se...

Synthesis, Characterization of Acid Orange 7 Dye on Cellulose Acetate Biopolymer

ABSTRACTThe present paper describes the synthesis of Acid Orange(7)dye which can be used as dyes for cellulose acetate biopolymer. They were obtained by the diazotization of a monoazo component of the mono-azobenzene type, followed by coupling. The monoazo components were obtained by the diazotization of sulphanilic acid and coupling with 2-naphthol. The synthesized dye was later analyzed by GC-MS, IR and UV-Vis spectrometry. The dyeing performance of the dye was evaluated on cellulose acetat...

The Physicochemical Parameters and Levels of Selected Heavy Metals (Cd, Cr, Mn, Zn and Pb) in Soil around Dana Steel Rolling Limited Katsina

The  physicochemical  parameters  and  levels  of  selected  heavy  metals  (Cd,  Cr,  Mn,  Zn  and  Pb)  in soil  around  Dana  Steel  Rolling  Limted  Katsina  were  investigated  in  this  research.  The  sample  area was  divided  into  four  units;  East,  West,  North  and  South  and  label  as  A,  B,  C  and  D  respectively using  stratified  random  sampling  method.    The  soil  was  digested  using  H2SO4,  HClO4 and  H...

THE EFFECTS OF THREE ORGANIC FERTILIZERS: POULTRY DROPPINGS, CATTLE DUNG AND PIG EXCRETA ON THE GROWTH OF FINGERLINGS OF Clarias gariepinus

ABSTRACTThis research was carried out to determine the effects of three organic fertilizers namely:  cattle dung, poultry droppings and pig excreta on the growth of fingerlings of Clarias gariepinus.  A total of 120 fingerlings of average length (15.3±2.10)cm and weight (34.2±8.73)g were used for the study.  The fingerlings were subjected to three different organic fertilizer treatments.  Each treatment was replicated thrice.  For proper assessment, a control experi...

CORRELATION OF RADON IN PHYSICO CHEMICAL OF WATER (CASE STUDY: IBADAN, OYO STATE.)

ABSRACTRadon is a natural radioactive inert gas that is odorless, colorless and tasteless. It cannot be detected without special equipment and it occurs as a product of uranium decay. Radon is an unstable radionuclide that disintegrates through short lived decay products before eventually reaching the end product of stable lead. The short lived decay products of radon are responsible for most of the hazard by inhalation and ingestion. Radon and its decay products emit highly ionizing alpha-ra...

Water Treatment and Purification Process: A Case Study of KIWASCO treatment Plant in Kisumu,Kenya

 Water supply and Sewerage services in urban areas have in the past commonly been provided by monopolized Municipal Councils under the previous Local Government Ministry. As part of a general move by the sector to shift to market-led systems by restructuring the sector, a new paradigm emerged to transform water utilities into more modern service delivery companies that emphasize on operational and financial sustainability. This report presents findings on attributes of a well-run Water T...

Production, Characterization and biodegradability of Biodiesel from Mangifera indica Kernel oil

CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION             Energy is essential to man’s continued existence. Today, the energy used by most industrialized and developing nations is oil, coal and natural gas. This need of energy is increasing continuously,1 fossil fuel reserves are fast depleting, crude oil prices are soaring and there is considerable uncertainty in their near-future availability. Countries lacking petroleum-ba...

THE EFFECT OF ENVIRONMENT ON CORROSION

ABSTRACTIn this research project, the various nail was subjected to six environments so as to check the effect of the environments on corrosion of the nails.Two sets of nails were used; normal nail and concrete nail.  Six of each type while the other not coated.The environments used are acidic solution, alkaline solution, salt solution, boiled water, air medium and lubricating oil medium, which served as a control medium.It was observed from the graphs of the weight of metal against time...
