ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY OF HONEY ON (STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUSESCHERICHIA COLI AND STREPTOCOCCUS PYOGEN) ISOLATED FROM WOUND

ABSTRACT Antibacterial activity of honey obtained from two different locations in Enugu State (Nsukka & Ugwuaji) Nigeria on Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Streptococcus pyogens isolated from wound was studied. Agar well diffusion method was used to determine the antibacterial activity of the honey on the test microorganisms. The result revealed that the two honey samples have heavy antibacterial activities against the test organisms and zones of inhibition were obtained showing h...

Polymer Degradation

ABSTRACT Polymers are used in various ways and they constitute the bulk of demand in the utilization of basic petrochemicals both in industries and domestic uses. Polymers have posed serious environmental problems because of their undegradability. Polymer degradation is a change in the properties of a polymer or polymer based products under the influence of one or more environmental factors such as heat, light, chemicals such as acids, alkalis and some salts, atmospheric oxygen, microorganism...

CORROSION BEHAVIOUR OF METALS/ALLOYS WITH AND WITHOUT COATING AT HIGH TEMPERATURE (200 – 1000OC) AND UNDER MARINE ENVIRONMENT

INTRODUCTIONCorrosion is the deterioration a material undergoes as a result of its interaction with its surroundings. Although this definition is applicable to any type of material, it is usually reserved for metallic alloys. Of the 105 known chemical elements, approximately eighty are metals , and about half of these can be alloyed with other metals, giving rise to more than 40,000 different alloys. Each of the alloys will have different physical, chemical, and mechanical properties, but all...

Reduction of the effect of cell phone electromagnetic radiation on human body

ABSTRACT This project work was carried out to access the level of electromagnetic radiation risk awareness from cell phones in selected audience of cell phone users using a Questionnaire. The reduction in the adverse effect of electromagnetic radiation from cell phones is theoretically explained in the research work. The Questionnaires were distributed at seven (7) different diagnostic centres working with radiations and also cell phone users. The level of awareness of the workers was found t...

Roles of bacteriocins in food safety

INTRODUCTION DEFINITION AND HISTORY Bacteriocins are bacterial ribosomally synthesized peptides or proteins with antimicrobial activity. As ribosomally synthesised peptides, bacteriocins are encoded by a plasmid- or chromosome-borne structural gene which is often clustered with genes coding for immunity protein(s) and dedicated transport. Bacteriocins are proteinaceous toxins produced as a tiny molecule by bacteria to inhibit the growth of similar or closely related bacterial strain(s) produc...

Mycotoxins: Characterization , Occurrence and Detection

INTRODUCTION Mycotoxins are pharmacologically active mold metabolites produced in a strain-specific way that elicit some complicated toxicological activities (Bennett, 2003). Mycotoxins could also be described as secondary metabolites produced by a wide variety of organisms categorized as fungi, including mushrooms, yeasts and molds. The term mycotoxin was used for the first time in 1961 in the aftermath of a veterinary crisis in England, during which thousands of animals died. The disease wa...
