For this data article the adsorption of Basic Blue 41 (BB 41) dye by activated carbon derived from filamentous algae (AAC) of available in agriculture waste as cheap adsorbents were examined. Activated carbon has been widely used as an adsorbent regard to its massive specific surface area, high porosity, reusability and thermal stability for the removal of pollutants from effluent. These filamentous algae grow widely in irrigation streams, causing decreasing speed of water flow and are not even eaten by livestock so are considered agricultural wastes...

The data presented in this research show the results of the experimental study of acoustic behaviour of coconut fibre-reinforced concrete (CFRC). The CFRC was added in percentages of 0.25%, 0.5%, 0.75% and 1% of cement. The acoustic test was conducted to determine the amount of sound that can be absorbed by the fibre. The data showed that the concrete reinforced with coconut fibre had the highest sound absorptive power, of which fibre treated absorbed more sound than other fibres, this is because washing of fibre increase the lignin content which is responsible for the sound absorbing property...

In this article a medicinal oil (neem oil) is fractionated and compared with original oil. The fractions were separated at low temperature using chloroform and methanol. The uniphase mixture of solvents and neem oil at room temperature was transformed to a bi-phasic system at low temperature. The isolated fractions (NOC - isolated using chloroform; NOM - isolated using methanol) were characterized and differentiated by GC, FT-IR and Rheometer. GC and FTIR have well revealed the difference in composition of fatty acids in fractions - NOC; NOM and neem oil (NO)...

The pursuit for bioremediation has led to alternative route for the synthesis of nanoparticles and their hybrids. Data in this article display optical properties and progress in the formation of silver and silver/nickel bimetallic nanoparticles using eco-friendly reducing agent (Akinsiku et al. 2018). The as-prepared nanoparticles portrayed nanocrystalline nature as revealed in the x-ray powder diffraction (XRPD) data. Data also exposed antimicrobial activity of the synthesized nanoparticles.

The data reported in this article contain eleven (6 female and 5 male) individual speaker's speech production patterns for the word-initial voiced and voiceless stops (/p,t/ and /b,d/) in American English. The production patterns are documented in the acoustic parameter: the Integrated Voicing Index (IVI) obtained from Voice Onset Time (VOT) and voicing duration in the stop closure (Voicing-in-Closure), in various prosodic contexts: lexically-stressed vs. unstressed; accented (focused) vs. unaccented (unfocused); phrase-initial vs...

Data presented in this article focused on the application of Methyl Ester Sulphonate (MES) surfactant and nanopolystyrene in water based drilling fluid. Data from rheology study using Bingham and Power law models showed that the synergy of MES and nanopolystyrene improved the formulated drilling fluid. Filtration study under LPLT and HPHT conditions showed that MES and nanopolystyrene drilling fluid reduced filtration loss by 50.7% at LPLT and 61.1% at HPHT conditions. These filtration data were validated by filter cake permeability and scanning electron microscope images...

The 2016 discovery of Emerald Ash Borer ( Agrilus planipennis; EAB ) in Nebraska warranted an assessment of the physical conditions of ash trees ( Fraxinus spp. ) across the state. Here we present a dataset of current physical conditions and spatial location of 30 Green Ash ( Fraxinus pennsylvanica ) throughout riparian woodlands along the Platte River in southcentral Nebraska. Ten Green Ash were assessed along transect lines through three riparian woodlands. Physical indicators of EAB infection and morphometric characteristics were recorded at each tree including diameter at breast height (DBH), estimated age, canopy condition rating scale (CCRS), borer holes, woodpecker holes, serpentine gallery, epicormic shoots, basal shoots, and bark splitting to document the health and condition of local Green Ash...

The present article contains data on the multi-step cyclic stress relaxation tests associated with the viscoelastic behavior of the neoprene rubber. Herein, the present data aims the accurate prediction of the time dependent mechanical behavior of the polymeric materials. The findings of the present data include the demonstration of the Mullin׳s stress-softening phenomenon, clearly. These data findings may serve as a benchmark to validate the more advanced phenomenological model developments in future as compared to the existing ones...

This article describes the effect of the oxidative stress inducers Angiotensin II and 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) on different cell lines. The levels of expression Angiotensin type 1 and type 2 receptors in different dopaminergic cell lines are shown. The data indicate that treatment with Angiotensin II and 6-OHDA increases the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and decreases cell viability. NRF2 is a transcription factor induced by ROS. We provide data that NRF2 overexpression increases cell viability in response to oxidative stress inducers compared to control cells, and that these inducers can, both separately and in combination, enhance the expression of NRF2-regulated genes heme oxygenase 1 (Hmox1), NAD(P)H quinone dehydrogenase 1 (Nqo1) and Kruppel like factor 9 (Klf9)...
