|Abstract||Electrochemical biosensors have become very important tools in analytical chemistry because of their advantages like accuracy, high sensitivity and easy handling. This article describes electrochemical detection of acetic acid based on the fungus Fusarium solani. The biosensor employed for the study of assimilation of substrates was fabricated by coupling the immobilized membrane with the DO probe using dialysis tubing. A microbial dispersion containing 0.2 g of wet weight of the organisms per mL was used for immobilization upon cellulose nitrate membrane. The membrane retaining the fungus was placed on the Teflon membrane of the oxygen electrode so that the fungus was trapped between the two membranes. The linear range was found to be between 2 and 70 ppm (v v) of acetic acid. A polypropylene net increases the lifetime of the sensor due to its retention of humidity in the net. By dipping the electrochemical probe onto buffer (pH 7.2), the sensor was found to have an extended lifetime of 120 days with about 800 determinations|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
