    Abstract: Bismuth oxide (Bi2O3) is known for its application in several industries such as solid oxide fuel cells, optoelectronics, gas sensors and optical coatings. The present study was designed to evaluate the effect of biofield energy treatment on the atomic, physical, and thermal properties of Bi2O3. The Bi2O3 powder was equally divided into two parts: ...

    Abstract: Nano-sized silver particles (AgNPs) were synthesized by easy and quite simple method, using pectin as both reducing and stabilizing agent. Solutions of AgNPs were applied to cotton fabrics in presence/absence of binder. The finished fabrics were examined for morphological and topographical features by using scanning electron microscopy which reveal... Show More
