Innovative Research Publications IRP India

The cracking of pentenes has been investigated at 773 and 873 K in modified MFI zeolite to produce ethylene and propylene. The activation energy showed a significant reduction for this investigation. Additionally, it has been evidenced the important role of the diffusion phenomenon and catalyst technical aspect on the processing of pentenes to produce ethylene and propylene proposing a mathematical model for the design of catalytic reactor achieving a 15% reduction in the volume of the reactor compare to obtained volume with the conventional design. This investigation opens the opportunity to explore new designs of catalysts taking in count intrinsic ...

Prevalence And Knowledge Of Brucellosis In Dairy Cattle In Makuyu Division, Murang’A County, Kenya, Dr. Michael N. Gicheru, Dr. Eric Mwangi, Mwangi Rachel Mbaire

Innovative Research Publications IRP India

Brucellosis is a cosmopolitan zoonotic disease that affects man, domestic animals and wildlife. The bacteria Brucella abortus is the principle cause of brucellosis in cattle. The incidence of the disease in humans, and which directly relates to that in other animals, is highly dependent on animal husbandry practices, the interaction between humans and animals, living standards, hygiene, food customs, and animal and human population density. Makuyu Division where the study was undertaken experiences hot and dry climate, the area has no permanent rivers and domestic water is obtained from boreholes. Most families live in congested homes and are provided with ...


Transforming Growth Factor Betas Induce Mmp-2 And Mmp-9 Secretion Via Smad-Dependent Signaling In Human Endometrial And Endometriotic Cells, Ezekiel O. Mecha, Cong Sui, Charles O.A . Omwandho, Hans-Rudolf Tinneberg, Lutz Konrad Dec 2015

Transforming Growth Factor Betas Induce Mmp-2 And Mmp-9 Secretion Via Smad-Dependent Signaling In Human Endometrial And Endometriotic Cells, Ezekiel O. Mecha, Cong Sui, Charles O.A . Omwandho, Hans-Rudolf Tinneberg, Lutz Konrad

Innovative Research Publications IRP India

Transforming growth factor-betas (TGF-βs) are elevated during menstruation and are involved in endometriosis. Similarly, matrix metalloproteinases like MMP-2 are also highly expressed in patients with endometriosis. Expression of gelatinases, MMP-2 and MMP-9, is increased by TGF-βs. TGF- βs bind and activate receptor-mediated Smad proteins to mediate gene expression, however, also non-Smad signaling pathways participate in signal transduction of the TGF-βs. In this study, we found that of MMP-2 and MMP-9 is higher in stromal cells especially in endometriotic cells compared to epithelial cells. Treatment of endometrial and endometriotic stromal and epithelial cells with TGF-β1 or TGF-β2 decreased cell numbers, induced ...

Garment dyeing has been practiced for many years, both commercially and as a home procedure. Recently, interest in this technique has increased since it makes possible to give rapidest response to consumer demand, reduces lead times and inventory. To establish a profitable garment dyeing plant, all manufacturing steps must be carefully controlled. In this paper, we have tried to give an idea about the process of using different types of dyes in garments dyeing and their fastness properties.

Effect Of Fibre Blend Ratios On Yarn Properties, Innovative Research Publications Irp India, A. Ghosh, M. Raihan

Innovative Research Publications IRP India

Yarn properties can be altered through blending fibres. According to the requirement different properties can be achieved by different blending ratios. Among the different blends cotton and polyester, cotton and wool, wool and acrylic, cotton and nylon, jute and acrylic, cotton and rayon etc are common. Flax and polyester has been a popular blend now-adays and depicts excellent properties than their individual yarn properties. Different proportion of flax and polyester has been tested to observe the yarn properties and it is found that polyester was perfectly fits with low proportion of flax. Their blends with specific ratios exhibit excellent properties ...

The Pollution Of River Ibër With Heavy Metals From Landfill Of Kelmend, Innovative Research Publications Irp India, Rafet Zeqiri, Izet Zeqiri, Sadija Nikshiq -Kadriu, Mehush Aliu

Innovative Research Publications IRP India

In this paper treated the degree of water pollution that emerges from mining and mixed with industrial wastes and as such in the form of pulp thrown in landfills. From the landfill through drainage and water flows in the river Ibër, penetrate the different pollutants that affect in water quality of this river. The degree of contamination of the river Ibër is monitored at several points, on which it is made water sampling of landfill and where we have reached the conclusion on the possibilities of prevention of water pollution of the river Ibër


Comparative Analysis Of Biodegradability Of Biodiesel Obtained By Conventional And Non-Conventional Methods, Innovative Research Publications Irp India, Nagaraja Y. P, Chandrashekhar Biradar Mar 2015

Comparative Analysis Of Biodegradability Of Biodiesel Obtained By Conventional And Non-Conventional Methods, Innovative Research Publications Irp India, Nagaraja Y. P, Chandrashekhar Biradar

Biodiesel is an alternative to conventional diesel fuel made from renewable resources. No engine modifications are required to use biodiesel in place of crude oil-based diesel. The use of biodiesel resulted in lower emissions of unburned hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and particulate matter. Biodiesel also increased catalytic converter efficiency in reducing particulate emissions. Chemical characterization also revealed lower levels of some toxic and reactive hydrocarbon species when biodiesel fuels were used. In the present work, biodiesel is produced by both conventional and non-conventional methods to determine the biodegradability effect using microorganisms obtained from soil collected from the vicinity of a petrol ...

The “Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals” (GHS) not only provides a unified system for dealing with the labeling of intrinsic materials and compound chemicals but also furnishes hazard information to the contingency personnel, work site workforce, transportation workforce and consumers for the prevention of acute and chronic health impairments as well as ecological hazards. Since 2008, the GHS has gradually been observed internationally to substitute the classification and labeling of hazardous substances, the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), and relevant regulations on hazardous chemicals which are currently used by many countries; substantial influences have been seen ...

Data Estimation At Unmeasured Positions Using Measured Receptance Frequency Response Function, Innovative Research Publications Irp India, Hee-Chang Eun, Dong-Ho Cho, Su-Yong Park

Innovative Research Publications IRP India

The dynamic responses of finite element model do not match with those of the experimental results due to modeling and measurement errors. It is impractical to collect the data for the full set of DOFs of a dynamic system. And there are some cases to have difficulty in measuring the response such as slope. This work presents an analytical method to estimate the frequency response function (FRF) at the unmeasured nodes of the actual system. The method is derived by minimizing the discrepancy between the analytical and actual FRF data sets dividing into the real and imaginary parts. The validity ...
