The flours isolated from canihua grains (Chenopodium Pallidicaule) can form films that have low water vapor permeability and act as a good barrier to incident ultraviolet light. Films formed from both varieties of canihua grains used in this study (cupi and illpa-inia) presented a single vitreous transition temperature (< 0 °C) and show promise for potential applications in food packaging.

ZnO/TiO2 nanocomposites were treated at different temperatures, and anatase, ZnO, and ZnTiO3 were formed when the sample was heated at 600 ºC, whereas the main phases obtained above 750 ºC were rutile and ZnTiO3. The presence of ZnTiO3 in the sample had no significant effect on the nanocomposite photocatalytic activity.

The following scheme depicts the application sequence of niobium oxide nanoparticles from an appropriate Nb source to heterogeneous photocatalysis. Aspects such as the morphology, band gap, and surface area are defined by the nanoparticles' synthetic parameters, which also influence the catalyst performance.

The calculation (and the sign) of DrG establishes the direction of a chemical reaction. Q-K inequalities are accurate options. However, the use of the sign of Δ,Gº or Le Châtelier's principle leads to incorrect predictions.
