A comparative evaluation of the effects of seed invigoration treatments with precursor zinc salt and nano-sized zinc oxide (ZnO) particles on vegetative growth, grain yield, and quality characteristics of Zea mays

Manisha Tondey, Anu Kalia, Alla Singh, Kamel Abd-Elsalam, Montaser M. Hassan & Gurmeet Singh Dheri
Abstract Introduction The zinc micronutrient fertilizers have a critical impact on the grain productivity and quality attributes of maize. However, the low use-efficiency issues of the applied Zn-fertilizers are required to be addressed through the development of novel formulations and alternative application techniques. Objectives This field study investigates the comparative impact of seed invigoration (including seed priming and coating) treatments with bulk zinc and ZnO nanoparticles (ZnONPs). Methods The two seed treatments with two different...

The miscibility between hydrophobic and hydrophilic biopolymers has been of significant challenge. This study used a novel simplified chitin modification method to produce phthalic - chitin using phthalic anhydride in a substitution reaction. The FT-IR functional group analysis was used to confirm the substitution reaction. The modified chitin was used as compatibiliser in PLA/starch biocomposite to enhance its properties. The biocomposite was prepared using melt extrusion and compression moulding technique. The biocomposite's morphological, thermomechanical, and...

Boosting the anti MERS-CoV activity and oral bioavailability of resveratrol via PEG-stabilized emulsomal nano-carrier: Factorial design, in-vitro and in-vivo assessments

Resveratrol (RSV) is a phytoceutical polyphenolic compound exhibiting a well evidenced wide range of therapeutic activities. Unfortunately, its diminished aqueous solubility and extensive metabolism in gastro intestinal tract (GIT) and liver prohibit its biological activity and systemic availability. Herein the conducted study PEG stabilized emulsomes (PEMLs) were customized to enclose RSV aiming to boost its biological availability and antiviral activity. PEGylating the vesicles not only grant the promoted steric stability of the system but also...
