    Abstract: Gamma irradiation has been proved to inhibit microbial growth, delay ripening and extend the shelf life of fruits and vegetables. The present investigation was undertaken to evaluate the effectiveness of gamma radiation on extending the shelf life of tomatoes. Tomatoes were treated with gamma radiation doses of 0.5, 0.75, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0... Show More

    Abstract: The graphene was synthesized by two routes the 1st one application of conventional sonication in case of Tri-chloro-acetic 75% H2SO3 for 60hrs while 2nd is combined sonication (60 hrs) plus laser irradiations for 30hrs. The yields of two routes are collected and compared structurally to check and investigate the effect of laser on structure quality... Show More

    Abstract: Exposure to high amounts of ionizing radiation results in damage to the hematopoietic system characterized by the destruction of hematopoietic cells in bone marrow, thus reducing the production of blood cells. Infections and bleeding that result can be fatal. Aged garlic extract (AGE) has been demonstrated to possess several physiological activitie... Show More
