    Physical, Thermal, and Spectroscopic Characterization of Biofield Energy Treated Potato Micropropagation Medium

    Export to Mendeley

    Potato Micropropagation Medium (PMM) is the growth medium used for in vitro micropropagation of potatotubers. The present study was intended to assess the effect of biofield energy treatment on the physical, thermal andspectroscopic properties of PMM. The study was attained in two groups i.e. control and treated. The control group wasremained as untreated, while the treated group was received Mr. Trivedi’s biofield energy treatment. Finally, both the samples(control and treated) were evaluated using various analytical techniques such as X-ray diffractometry (XRD), differentialscanning calorimetry (DSC), thermogravimetric analysis- differential thermal analysis (TGA-DTA), UV-Vis spectrometry, andFourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy. The XRD analysis showed the crystalline nature of both control and treatedsamples of PMM. The X-ray diffractogram showed the significant increase in the intensity of XRD peaks in treated sample ascompared to the control. The XRD analysis revealed 6.64% increase in the average crystallite size of treated PMM with respectto the control. The DSC analysis showed about 8.66% decrease in the latent heat of fusion in treated sample with respect to thecontrol. The TGA-DTA analysis exhibited about 4.71% increase in onset temperature of thermal degradation after biofieldtreatment with respect to the control, while the maximum thermal degradation temperature (Tmax) was also increased (5.06%)in treated sample with respect to the control. This increase in Tmax might be correlated with increased thermal stability oftreated sample as compared to the control. The UV spectroscopic study showed the slight blue shift in λmax of treated samplewith respect to the control. FT-IR spectrum of control PMM showed the peak at 3132 cm-1 (C-H stretching) that was observedat higher wavenumber i.e. at 3161 cm-1 in the treated sample. Other vibrational peaks in the treated sample were observed inthe similar region as that of the control. Altogether, the XRD, DSC, TGA-DTA, UV-Vis, and FT-IR analysis suggest that Mr.Trivedi’s biofield energy treatment has the impact on physicochemical properties of PMM. This treated PMM might be moreeffective as a micropropagation medium as compared to the control.

    Title : Physical, Thermal, and Spectroscopic Characterization of Biofield Energy Treated Potato Micropropagation Medium

    Abstract : Potato Micropropagation Medium (PMM) is the growth medium used for in vitro micropropagation of potatotubers. The present study was intended to assess the effect of biofield energy treatment on the physical, thermal andspectroscopic properties of PMM. The study was attained in two groups i.e. control and treated. The control group wasremained as untreated, while the treated group was received Mr. Trivedi’s biofield energy treatment. Finally, both the samples(control and treated) were evaluated using various analytical techniques such as X-ray diffractometry (XRD), differentialscanning calorimetry (DSC), thermogravimetric analysis- differential thermal analysis (TGA-DTA), UV-Vis spectrometry, andFourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy. The XRD analysis showed the crystalline nature of both control and treatedsamples of PMM. The X-ray diffractogram showed the significant increase in the intensity of XRD peaks in treated sample ascompared to the control. The XRD analysis revealed 6.64% increase in the average crystallite size of treated PMM with respectto the control. The DSC analysis showed about 8.66% decrease in the latent heat of fusion in treated sample with respect to thecontrol. The TGA-DTA analysis exhibited about 4.71% increase in onset temperature of thermal degradation after biofieldtreatment with respect to the control, while the maximum thermal degradation temperature (Tmax) was also increased (5.06%)in treated sample with respect to the control. This increase in Tmax might be correlated with increased thermal stability oftreated sample as compared to the control. The UV spectroscopic study showed the slight blue shift in λmax of treated samplewith respect to the control. FT-IR spectrum of control PMM showed the peak at 3132 cm-1 (C-H stretching) that was observedat higher wavenumber i.e. at 3161 cm-1 in the treated sample. Other vibrational peaks in the treated sample were observed inthe similar region as that of the control. Altogether, the XRD, DSC, TGA-DTA, UV-Vis, and FT-IR analysis suggest that Mr.Trivedi’s biofield energy treatment has the impact on physicochemical properties of PMM. This treated PMM might be moreeffective as a micropropagation medium as compared to the control.
