Sodium phosphate dibasic is an inorganic compound with alkaline pH and hygroscopic in nature.12 Numerous dye leakage studies have been performed on MTA when used as a root-end filling material using different types of dyes such as methylene blue, fuchsin, rhodamine B, silver nitrate, India ink, and Pelikan ink.13,14 In this study rhodamine B dye was used for dye penetration.
Rhodamine B, a chemical dye, is banned internationally and also by the Lebanese Health Ministry for potentially causing cancer.
The dye Rhodamine B has been used for staining oils in media in Petri dishes with the aim of determining microbial lipase activity [16].
Hydrazine hydrate (85%), rhodamine B, and (3-isocyanatopropyl)triethoxysilane (GR, 95%) were purchased from J&K Technology Co.
reported that the hierarchical tetranitrocopper phthalocyanine (TNCuPc) hollow spheres exhibited, simultaneously, high adsorption capacity and an excellent visible-light-driven photocatalytic degradation performance for Rhodamine B under visible light.
Fine Bakers, which runs a sweet shop on Crosland Road, Thornton Lodge, was fined PS2,500 by Kirklees Magistrates' Court in Huddersfield for making and selling Indian sweets containing the additive rhodamine B. The bright pink chemical, which is banned from use in foods, glows under fluorescent light.
Rhodamine B is a xanthene dye whose optical properties depend of several factors, such as solvent, concentration and pH value [2].
Rhodamine B is used as the dye because of its fluorescence at the excitation wavelength of 514 nm.
LINGERING ODORS In the new study, conducted at Stanford's Hopkins Marine Station in Pacific Grove, Calif., Epel and Luckenbach exposed patches of gill tissue from California mussels to solutions of seawater containing standard amounts of alcohol and a fluorescent red dye called rhodamine B. Some solutions also contained other chemicals from a list including half-a-dozen musks.
They incubated the tissue for 90 minutes in a solution containing musk compounds and the fluorescent dye rhodamine B. The dye reflects efflux transporter activity; finding rhodamine B in the tissue would indicate the transporters were failing.
Under the optimal conditions , the effect for photocatalytic degradation of Rhodamine B solution was also studied, and the removal rate of Rhodamine B (10-5mol/L) reached 97%.
The enhancement was due to the near-field interaction between the Rhodamine B molecules and the waveguide's modal fields [7].
