Automatic digital plant classification and retrieval can be achieved by extracting features from its leaves. There are ample opportunities to improve plant species identification due to computerization through the designing of a convenient automatic plant recognition system. Many different approaches are used to classify the species of plants based on the(More)
Polyhalogenated N-methylbipyrroles of two different structure classes have been detected worldwide in over 100 environmental samples including seawater, bird eggs, fish, dolphin blubber, and in the breast milk of humans that consume seafood. These molecules are concentrated in the fatty tissues in comparable abundance to some of the most important(More)
A series of coumarin-chalcone hybrids have been synthesized and evaluated for their in vitro cytotoxicity against a panel of four human cancer cell lines and normal fibroblasts (NIH3T3). Among 21 compounds screened, three compounds (23, 25 and 26) showed IC(50) range from 3.59 to 8.12 μM. The most promising compound 26 showed around 30-fold more selectivity(More)
A series of 3-phenylcoumarins were synthesized and screened for potential antidepressant activity by tail suspension test (TST) in mice. Three compounds (6, 7 and 13) exhibited impressive antidepressant activity, measured in terms of percentage decrease in immobility duration (% DID). In addition, the active antidepressant compounds were subsequently(More)
First synthesis of novel coumarin-trioxane hybrids is reported. The synthesis was achieved via condensation of β-hydroxyhydroperoxides with coumarinic-aldehydes in presence of p-toluenesulfonic acid in good yields and the novel hybrids were evaluated for their antimalarial activity both in vitro and in vivo.
A series of 3,6-epoxy [1,5]dioxocines were synthesized and evaluated for their antifilarial activity against adult parasites of human lymphatic filarial parasite Brugia malayi (sub-periodic strain) in vitro. Out of these, six compounds (4a-f) possessed improved in vitro anti-filarial activity and examples 4d and 4f were also found to be active in the in(More)
A computerized method for recognizing plant leaf based on their images is proposed. Plant classification is based on leaf identification which has broad application on prospective in medicine and agriculture. Plant leaf images corresponding to six plant types are taken using a digital camera which are examined using three different modeling techniques,(More)
The concept of molecular hybridization led us to discover a novel series of coumarin-dihydropyridine hybrids that have potent osteoblastic bone formation in vitro and that prevent ovariectomy-induced bone loss in vivo. In this context, among all the compounds screened for alkaline phosphatase activity, four compounds 10, 14, 18, and 22 showed significant(More)
the existence of human living and development, plants play a crucial part. In order to effectively collect and preserve the genetic resources, the intra-and inter-specific variations must be estimated in proper manner. In plant classification, the leaf shape plays a significant role. In machine intelligence, the most significant part essential for both(More)
