    Abstract: A simple and easy to implement numerical method is proposed in order to considerably simplify the experimental calibration procedure of C-SNARF-1 indicator used for ratiometric pH sensing. Usually, calibration is based on the measurement of fluorescence spectra using perfectly calibrated equipment at extreme pH values. The calibration solutions mus... Show More

    Abstract: Food is one of the most basic needs necessary for human survival and is achieved through qualitative feeding practices. Achieving food security in its totality continues to be a challenge not only to the developing nations, but also to the developed world. Nigeria is becoming more dependent on external sources to feed her citizens epitomized in the... Show More
