Insecticidal Property of Acacia Seeds and Bark AgainstTermites
Insecticidal Property of Acacia (Samanea saman) Seeds and Bark Against Termites (Coptotermes vastator). A study onthe insecticidal property of Acacia seeds and bark against termites was conducted to find out if these could be used againsttermites. The experiment was conducted at the laboratory of the Bureau of Soils in Lipa City and in Lumbang NationalHigh School from September to October 2005. The effort was initiated to enrich the laboratory activities in Chemistry andBiology for high school students.It especially attempted to answer the following questions:1.How can insecticides be prepared from Acacia seeds and bark?2.How effective is the Acacia insecticide in combating or killing termites (Coptotermes vastator);3.Are there significant differences in the effectiveness of the ethanolic Acacia extract and commercial insecticide(Solignum) in combating termites?4.What are the implications of the use of Acacia seeds as insecticide on the environment and human health?Ethanolic extracts were prepared from the seeds and bark of Acacia collected from areas surrounding Laurel farm inLumbang, Lipa City. These extracts were used as samples in the qualitative analysis and preliminary screening for insecticidal property against termites. The screening of the ethanolic extracts from Acacia seeds and bark revealed the presence of saponin, tannins, alkaloids, reducing agents glycosides, carbohydrates, which have the capacity to killtermites. The one-way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was used in comparing the means of the effect of the ethanolicextracts against termites. Results were positive, showing the experimental sample to be comparable to Solignum.Banana seeds palm seeds, banana and agave seeds. 1000 species.

Cassava starch as an effective component for IdealBiodegradable Plastic
Inventions have evolved and continue to evolve such that after several years of study, research and experimentationreach great developments. With continuing efforts to investigate the constituents of Philippine plants, we have pursuedinvestigation of starch of the cassava plant (Manihot esculenta). Cassava tubers were gathered, ground and squeezed toextract starch. Starch obtained was weighed and divided into three equal parts; 80 grams in T1, T2 and T3.Treatments also consisted of 60 ml plastic resin glue and resin with 50 grams of flour catalyst for T1, 100 grams for T2and 150 grams in T3. The components in every treatment were mixed, stirred and then poured in silk screen with oil andthen sun-dried. Test for capacity to carry weight indicated T3 as the best. For its ability to hold water, all products passed but for biodegradability, T1 gave the best results. The tensile and bending properties had been tested using theUniversal Testing Machine and Analysis showed that T3 had the greatest tensile strength while T2 had the greatest bending property. Using ANOVA single Factor, results showed that there was significant difference among the threetreatments in bending and tensile strength. However, for biodegradability test there was no significant difference. Thefinal phase of the study determined the effectiveness of cassava starch as component of biodegradable plastic. Resultsconfirmed that cassava starch is ideal as tests proved its worth.

Potential Use of Oyster Shells in Ceramic Production
This study focused on the possibility of replacing silica in ceramic production with oyster shells. Powdered oyster shellswere used instead of silica in the production of ceramics. The texture, color and durability of the ceramics werecompared to those made with silica. Six kilograms of Vigan clay and 2.5 kg of ball clay were mixed and soaked inwater overnight. The following day, the mixture was kneaded again and filtered. The mixture was placed over Plaster of Paris for the water to be absorbed.The solidified mixture was then rolled and compressed to let the air escape from the spaces inside the solidified mixture.After this, the mixture was molded, air dried for four days and fired in a furnace. Three trials were made at differenttemperatures – 900 degrees Celcius, 950 degrees Celcius and 1000 degrees Celcius. The finished products werecompared in terms of texture and color to those made using silica. Ten evaluators from the staff of the University of  Northern Philippines – Ceramics Research, Training and Development Center rated set-ups in a scale of 1-10 with 1 being the lowest rating and 10 the highest. It was found that the texture of the experimental set-up is better than thecontrol set-up. It was also found that the color of the experimental set-up is comparable to the control set-up. Tests ondurability of the ceramics, which were done at SLU College of Engineering Laboratory, revealed that the experimentalset-up is more durable than the control set-up. This proves that oyster shell can be utilized in the production of ceramics.It also affirms that ceramics made using oyster shells are better than those produced using silica in terms of texture anddurability.
