  Molecular Identification of Isolates from Environmental Sample Using 16s rRNA Genes from Acrylic-Based Paints Effluents
By A. Chimaghalam, T. I. Mbata, C. N. Chimaroke

Adverse impacts of paints effluents from industries improperly disposed into the environment as well as paint washings from buildings and other infrastructure caused a lot of carcinogenic, mutagenic, physiological alterations resulting in debilitating health effects on humans. The study was aimed at isolating and identifying some dominant bacteria involves in the biodegradation of acrylic...

  Evaluation of the Nutritional Value, Antioxidant and Antimicrobial Compositions of Kigelia Africana Fruit
By A. O. Olatunji, O. O. Dosumu, O. F. Ibidunmoye, H. O. Akintunde

The use of plant as medicine has a long history in the treatment of various diseases. In Africa, traditional medicine is practiced and plants are exploited for the treatment of many infections and diseases. Kigelia africana is one of such plants used to prepare local tonics for improved health and growth. This research aimed to investigate and compare the yield, phytochemical presence and...

  Effects of Seasonal Variations on Microorganisms on Paint-Polluted Soil in Nigeria
By A. Chimaghalam, T. I. Mbata, C. N. Chimaroke

Adverse impacts of paints effluents from industries improperly disposed into the environment caused pollution, a lot of carcinogenic, mutagenic, physiological alterations resulting in debilitating health effects on humans. The study was aimed at isolating and identifying some dominant microorganisms involves in the biodegradation of acrylic paint-impacted sites at different seasons. A total of...

By C. O. Olawoyin, T. J. Atarase

Dialium guineense (Velvet Tamarind) seeds ‘Dawanu’ market, Dawakin Tofa Local Government Area of Kano State, Nigeria, were collected and qualitatively analysed for phytochemical constituents. The results showed the presence of Alkaloids, Tannins, Cardiac Glycosides. Cardenolides and Steroids were also detected. Saponins and phenols were undetected. The Proximate analysis revealed a...

  Effects of Frying Time on the Concentration of Cyanide in Garri (A Fermented Cassava Product)
By U. Ozurumba, S. C. Onyewenjo

The study investigated the effects of roasting time on the cyanide content of garri, a cassava meal commonly consumed in many parts of the world especially, Africa. Tubers of cassava were obtained from Umuna Okigwe, peeled and grinded. The pulp was packed into a cotton bag, dewatered and allowed to ferment under pressure using locally fabricated mechanical press. A calculated quantity (80g), was...
