Synthesis of Nano-silica-Cl
Nano-SiO2-functionalized-Cl was synthesized via surface reaction of Nano-SiO2 by using 3-chloroproyltrimethoxysilane as the silylation agent. 2.0 g of Nano-SiO2 and 50 ml of toluene were mixed into a 250 mL round flask. 4.0 mL of 3-chloropropyltrimethoxysilane was then added and the mixture was refluxed at 110°C with continuous stirring for 6 hours. The resulting functionalized Nano-SiO2-Cl was collected and washed by ethanol and diethylether several times and dried at 50°C until complete dryness.
2.3.3. Synthesis of Nano-silica-folic acid (NS-FA)
Folic acid was used to functionalize Nano-SiO2-Cl for the formation of Nano-SiO2-folic acid according to the following procedure. 2.0 g of Nano-SiO2-Cl was added to 50 ml of toluene in a 250 mL round flask. 2.0 g of folic acid was then added and the mixture was refluxed at 110°C and continuous stirring for 6 hours, filtered and washed by ethanol and diethylether several times and dried at 50°C to complete dryness.

It's visible that, after the chlorination step and modification of silica, the content of nitrogen show visibly increases. From the obtained results the insertion of the folic acid moieties onto the chlorinated modified silica is shown.
3.1.2. Infrared spectra (FT-IR)
FTIR was used to ascertain the immobilized folic acid onto the surface of the nano-silica. The FTIR spectra of the nano-silica is shown in (Fig. 1). The sharp feature around 1100 cm-1 indicating Si-O-Si stretching vibration. The presence of adsorption water was reflected by the presence of OH vibration at 3440 cm-1 and 1632 cm-1. For chlorinated nano-silica, the presence of chlorine was reflected by the presence of stretching vibration at 900 cm-1 and after addition of folic acid the presence of new peaks at 1750 cm-1 was reflected the presence of new carbonyl group of carboxylic group.
3.1.3. Scan electron microscope (SEM)
The morphology and size of the raw and modified silica were studied by SEM. (Fig. 2) a shows SEM of the nano-silica, it can be concluded that the modified silica is comprised of aggregated nanoparticles with average size less than 100

    Ciminelli and Osseo-Asare, 1995; Lowson, 1982). Anderson (1951) reported 26 kJ/mol in the study of oxidation kinetics of galena (PbS) while Stenhouse and Armstrong (1952) reported an activation energy of 20 kJ/mol for the alkaline oxidation of pyrite. Koslides and Ciminelli (1992) suggested that during alkaline oxidation of sulphides, there is a change from chemical (activation energy > 40 kJ/mol) to diffusion (activation energy < 40 kJ/mol) control as the rate determining step when temperature is above 100°C This led them to conclude that the oxidation is a mixed controlled reaction. Alkaline oxidation of arsenic bearing minerals Arsenopyrite (FeAsS) is the most abundant arsenic containing sulphide mineral. As such, it will be the focal point…

    In-vitro drug release study The prepared econazole nitrate nanoparticles obtained from the nano-spray dryer were suspended in isotonic buffer pH 7.4 and were then tested for drug release by dialysis method in isotonic buffer with pH of 7.4. Nanoparticles (equivalent to 2.5 mg of drug) were instilled in dialysis bag containing 1 ml isotonic buffer with pH value of 7.4 and was secured by two clamps at each end. The dialysis bag was completely soaked in a vessel containing 100 ml of release medium with shaking rate of 200 stroke per min and maintaining at 34oC (incubator shaker IKA KS 4000, Germany). The vessel was closed to avoid evaporation of the release medium. Samples were taken at certain time intervals.…
