    Characterization of Biofield Energy Treated 3-Chloronitrobenzene: Physical,Thermal, and Spectroscopic Studies

    Export to Mendeley

    The chloronitrobenzenes are widely used as the intermediates in the production of pharmaceuticals, pesticidesand rubber processing chemicals. However, due to their wide applications, they are frequently released into theenvironment thereby creating hazards. The objective of the study was to use an alternative strategy i.e. biofieldenergy treatment and analysed its impact on the physical, thermal and spectral properties of 3-chloronitrobenzene(3-CNB). For the study, the 3-CNB sample was taken and divided into two groups, named as control and treated.The analytical techniques used were X-ray diffraction (XRD), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), differential scanningcalorimetry (DSC), UV-Visible (UV-Vis), and Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy. The treated groupwas subjected to the biofield energy treatment and analysed using these techniques against the control sample.The XRD data showed an alteration in relative intensity of the peak along with 30% decrease in the crystallite sizeof the treated sample as compared to the control. The TGA studies revealed the decrease in onset temperature ofdegradation from 140oC (control) to 120‹C, while maximum thermal degradation temperature was changed from157.61oC (control) to 150.37oC in the treated sample as compared to the control. Moreover, the DSC studies revealedthe decrease in the melting temperature from 51‹C (control) ¨47‹C in the treated sample. Besides, the UV-Vis andFT-IR spectra of the treated sample did not show any significant alteration in terms of wavelength and frequenciesof the peaks, respectively from the control sample. The overall study results showed the impact of biofield energytreatment on the physical and thermal properties of 3-CNB that can further affect its use as a chemical intermediateand its fate in the environment.

    Title : Characterization of Biofield Energy Treated 3-Chloronitrobenzene: Physical,Thermal, and Spectroscopic Studies

    Abstract : The chloronitrobenzenes are widely used as the intermediates in the production of pharmaceuticals, pesticidesand rubber processing chemicals. However, due to their wide applications, they are frequently released into theenvironment thereby creating hazards. The objective of the study was to use an alternative strategy i.e. biofieldenergy treatment and analysed its impact on the physical, thermal and spectral properties of 3-chloronitrobenzene(3-CNB). For the study, the 3-CNB sample was taken and divided into two groups, named as control and treated.The analytical techniques used were X-ray diffraction (XRD), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), differential scanningcalorimetry (DSC), UV-Visible (UV-Vis), and Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy. The treated groupwas subjected to the biofield energy treatment and analysed using these techniques against the control sample.The XRD data showed an alteration in relative intensity of the peak along with 30% decrease in the crystallite sizeof the treated sample as compared to the control. The TGA studies revealed the decrease in onset temperature ofdegradation from 140oC (control) to 120‹C, while maximum thermal degradation temperature was changed from157.61oC (control) to 150.37oC in the treated sample as compared to the control.

Besides, the UV-Vis andFT-IR spectra of the treated sample did not show any significant alteration in terms of wavelength and frequenciesof the peaks, respectively from the control sample. The overall study results showed the impact of biofield energytreatment on the physical and thermal properties of 3-CNB that can further affect its use as a chemical intermediateand its fate in the environment.
