  • Role of bioinoculants in development of salt-resistant saplings of Morus alba (var. sujanpuri) in vivo 

    Kashyap, Suman; Sharma, Satyawati; Vasudevan, Padma (2004)
    Pot experiments were conducted for the development of salt-resistant saplings of Morus alba (var. sujanpuri) involving bioinoculants, namely arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi, Azotobacter and indole butyric acid (IBA). The ...
  • Tagetes:a multipurpose plant 

    Vasudevan, Padma; Kashyap, Suman; Sharma, Satyawati (1997)
    Tagetes species, popularly known as marigold, are grown as ornamental plants and thrive in varied agroclimates. Bioactive extracts of different Tagetes parts exhibit nematocidal, fungicidal and insecticidal activity. ...
  • Technical aspects of biodiesel production by transesterification—a review 

    Meher, L C; Sagar, D Vidya; Naik, S N (2006)
    Biodiesel is gaining more and more importance as an attractive fuel due to the depleting fossil fuel resources. Chemically biodiesel is monoalkyl esters of long chain fatty acids derived from renewable feed stock like ...
  • Thermal and spectroscopic studies on sorption of nickel(II) ion on protonated baker’s yeast 

    Padmavathy, V; Vasudevan, Padma; Dhingra, S C (2003)
    Protonated form (Hy) of yeast was subjected to thermal analysis (TGA and DTG) in the temperature range 60–800 °C. Chemically bound water volatilizes around 200 °C and the matrix undergoes extensive oxidative decomposition ...
  • Thermal modeling of solar stills: an experimental validation 

    Shukla, S K; Sorayan, V P S (2005)
    Expressions for water and glass temperatures, yield and efficiency of both single and double slope multiwick solar distillation systems in quasi-steady state conditions have been derived. The analysis is based on the basic ...
  • Utilisation of agro-residues as animal feed through bioconversion 

    Bisaria, Ragini; Madan, Mira; Vasudevan, Padma (1997)
    Bioconversion of agro-residues, rice straw and wheat straw, was carried out with the edible mushroom Pleurotus sajor-caju, with a view to increasing nutri-tive values and digestibilities for animal feed. Amongst the inorganic ...
