EXTRACTION OF OIL FROM WATERMELON SEED

CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION The edible fruit of watermelon (Citrullus lanatus) belongs to the family Cubitaceae. The fruit contains many obovate, smooth compressed seeds thickened at the margin and of a black or yellowish white colour. Watermelon plays a very important role in Africa as it is used to quench thirst when there is shortage of water. The seed […]

EXTRACTION OF SILICA FROM RICE HUSK ASH

CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1   BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY Critical economic and environmental situations of the current days encourage companies and researchers to develop and improve technologies intended to reduce or minimize industrial wastes. As a consequence, much effort has been expended in different areas, including the agricultural production. Rice is the second largest produced cereal […]

PRODUCTION OF CHEMICAL INSECTICIDES USING NEEM OIL AND THE PROCESSES INVOLVED

CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1   BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY According to Wikipedia “An insecticide is a chemical used against insects. They include homicides and parricides used against the eggs and larvae of insects, respectively. Insecticides are used in agriculture, medicine, industry, and general home use. The use of insecticides is believed to be one of the major factors […]

PRODUCTION OF BIO-DIESEL USING PALM KERNEL

CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1  BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY Biodiesel (fatty acid methyl esters) is an alternative fuel for diesel engines. It is an alcohol ester product from the transesterification of triglycerides in vegetable oils or animals accomplished by reacting lower alcohols such as methanol or ethanol with triglycerides. The National Biodiesel Board (USA) technically defined […]

DETERMINATION THE CONCENTRATION LEVELS OF TOTAL PETROLEUM HYDROCARBONS (TPH) IN SOILS FOUND IN AUTOMOBILE SHOP

CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1      BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY Petroleum hydrocarbons are used generally in our environment as fuel and chemicalcompounds. The uncontrolled release of petroleum hydrocarbons negatively impacts many of our soi1 and water resources. The contamination can result from leaking Underground Storage Tanks (UST), petroleum refineries and bulk storage facilities, broken oil pipelines, spills […]

EFFECT OF DIFFERENT SOLVENT TYPES ON THE YIELD OF OIL FROM AVOCADO PEAR SEED

CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1 BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY Vegetables and fruits are essential foods in our diet and also have many compounds that are beneficial for health due to minor components which include phenolic substances (Francisco et al., 2012). The consumption of the tropical-subtropical fruit, avocado, has increased considerably in the last century throughout Nigeria. There […]

EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION OF MACRONUTRIENT CONTENTS OF CASSAVA LEAVES COMPOSTED AGRICULTURAL SOIL

ABSTRACT Agricultural Soil is a mixture of minerals, organic matter, gases, liquids, and countless organisms that together support life on earth. The use of compost or organic manure is currently being advocated as an option for improving soil fertility. The method used in carrying out this analysis for cyanide, macronutrient (N,P,K) are titrimetric method, NO3 – […]

PRODUCTION OF ETHANOL THROUGH THE FERMENTATION OF REDUCING SUGARS RESULTING FROM THE HYDROLYSIS OF PRETREATED SAWDUST (HARDWOOD)

CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1 BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY Lignocellulosic biomass (e.g. sawdust obtained from wood) provides a unique and sustainable resource for environmentally safe organic fuels and chemicals. Furthermore, due to the abundance of lignocellulosic materials, its conversion to ethanol (a biofuel) is considered one of the most important uses of biomass as an energy […]

EFFECTS OF DIFFERENT LEVEL OF COW DUNG MANURE AND CHEMICAL FERTILIZER ON THE VEGETATIVE GROWTH OF SOME SELECTIVE COW PEA VARIETIES.

ABSTRACT   The low productivity of the cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L. Walp.) leafy vegetables in smallholder farms in Nigeria is partly attributed to moisture stress, declining soil fertility and poor leaf harvesting practices. To increase the productivity and utilization of these crops requires development of  suitable agronomic practices such as appropriate watering regimes, effective nutrient […]

DISSOLUTION KINETIC AND SOLVENT EXTRACTION OF ALUMINIUM FROM KAOLIN

CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION Kaolinite Kaolinite is one of the rare earth compounds that contain high concentration or percent of alumina and silica in the earth crust, and it has the chemical composition Al2Si2O5(OH)4. Rare earth (RE) compounds are “hi-tech” materials used in electronics automotive catalytic converter, glass/ceramic permanent magnets and nuclear energy. High demand/tight supply […]

AN INVESTIGATIVE STUDY ON THE EFFECT OF GENDER DIFFERENCE ON ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF CHEMISTRY STUDENTS IN SECONDARY SCHOOLS

ABSTRACT The research study was aimed at investigating the effect of gender difference on academic performance of chemistry students in some selected secondary schools of Zaria Local Government Area of Kaduna State. Some schools within Zaria were chosen, 100 students (50 males, 50 females) were randomly selected from each school making a total of 100 […]

A NEW BLEND OF LUBRICANT OIL FROM VEGETABLE OIL

ABSTRACT   This thesis aimed at the production of biolubricant from vegetable oils. The first stage produced methyl ester of the oil and in the second stage; the methyl ester was transesterified with Trimethylolpropane (TMP) in a ratio of 3.5:1 at 1500C to produce the biolubricant. The pour points biolubricant and its blend were significantly […]

PRODUCTION OF CRUDE OIL- DRILLING PROCESS

ABSTRACT The tremendous (large) demand of some petroleum fractions in our modern world today has drive some professionals (experts) in oil sectors into exploration and drilling operation which is aimed at locating the mineral oil deposit and extracting it from beneath the earth surface with aid of some vital exploration techniques and drilling machine (ng) […]
