    Characterization of Physical, Thermal and SpectralProperties of Biofield Treated Date Palm Callus Initiation Medium

    Export to Mendeley

    The date palm is mainly cultivated for the production of sweet fruit. Date palm callus initiation medium (DPCIM) isused for plant tissue culture applications. The present work is intended to evaluate the impact of Mr. Trivedi’s biofield energytreatment on physical, thermal and spectral properties of the DPCIM. The control and treated DPCIM were evaluated by variousanalytical techniques such as X-ray diffraction (XRD), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thermogravimetric analysis(TGA), Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy, particle size analyzer (PSA), surface area analyzer and ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy (UV-vis) analysis. The XRD analysis revealed a decrease in intensity of XRD peaks of the treatedsample as compared to the control. The crystallite size of the treated DPCIM (81.02 nm) was decreased with respect to thecontrol sample (84.99 nm). The DSC analysis showed a slight decrease in melting temperature of the treated sample.Additionally, the latent heat of fusion of treated sample was changed by 45.66% as compared to the control sample. The TGAanalysis showed an increase in onset degradation temperature of the treated sample (182ºC) as compared to the control sample(142ºC). This indicated the increase in thermal stability of the treated DPCIM. PSA results demonstrated an increase in averageparticle size (d50) and size showed by 99% of particles (d99) by 19.2 and 40.4%, respectively as compared to the control sample.The surface area analyzer showed a decrease in surface area of treated DPCIM by 13.4%, which was well supported by theparticle size results. UV spectra of the treated sample showed the disappearance of absorption peak 261 nm in treated sample ascompared to the control. Overall, the result showed that biofield energy treatment has a paramount influence on physical, thermaland spectral properties of DPCIM. Therefore, it is assumed that biofield treated DPCIM could be used as a better medium forplant tissue culture applications.

    Title : Characterization of Physical, Thermal and SpectralProperties of Biofield Treated Date Palm Callus Initiation Medium

    Abstract : The date palm is mainly cultivated for the production of sweet fruit. Date palm callus initiation medium (DPCIM) isused for plant tissue culture applications. The present work is intended to evaluate the impact of Mr. Trivedi’s biofield energytreatment on physical, thermal and spectral properties of the DPCIM. The control and treated DPCIM were evaluated by variousanalytical techniques such as X-ray diffraction (XRD), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thermogravimetric analysis(TGA), Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy, particle size analyzer (PSA), surface area analyzer and ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy (UV-vis) analysis. The XRD analysis revealed a decrease in intensity of XRD peaks of the treatedsample as compared to the control. The crystallite size of the treated DPCIM (81.02 nm) was decreased with respect to thecontrol sample (84.99 nm). The DSC analysis showed a slight decrease in melting temperature of the treated sample.Additionally, the latent heat of fusion of treated sample was changed by 45.66% as compared to the control sample. The TGAanalysis showed an increase in onset degradation temperature of the treated sample (182ºC) as compared to the control sample(142ºC). This indicated the increase in thermal stability of the treated DPCIM. PSA results demonstrated an increase in averageparticle size (d50) and size showed by 99% of particles (d99) by 19.2 and 40.4%, respectively as compared to the control sample.The surface area analyzer showed a decrease in surface area of treated DPCIM by 13.4%, which was well supported by theparticle size results. UV spectra of the treated sample showed the disappearance of absorption peak 261 nm in treated sample ascompared to the control. Overall, the result showed that biofield energy treatment has a paramount influence on physical, thermaland spectral properties of DPCIM. Therefore, it is assumed that biofield treated DPCIM could be used as a better medium forplant tissue culture applications.
