|Abstract||Affinity sites for antibacterial drug ampicillin, were created on the surface of polyurethane using the technique of non-covalent molecular imprinting. This was achieved by polymerizing aminophenylboronic acid in the presence of the ampicillin as a template. The extent of adsorption of the drug by the imprinted surface is nearly five times higher than the non-imprinted surface. The in vitro release studies have shown that the drug is retained for a prolonged period on the imprinted surface while it is rapidly released from the non-imprinted surface. These modified materials were subjected to interactions with two bacterial strains, E. Coli and and S. aureus. These species could not adhere to the imprinted surface, further showing the ability of the surface to retain the drug for a prolonged period of time. The non-imprinted surface retained the bacterial strains, reflecting the lack of the drug on the surface. This novel approach seems to be useful for creating surfaces capable of retaining components of interest through non-covalent interactions to impart specific features, such as improved blood compatibility and antibacterial properties.|

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 (NDL India) pilot 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. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, 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. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India 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 respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
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 (NDL India) pilot project.
