Degradation of phenanthrene by different bacteria: evidence for novel transformation sequences involving the formation of 1-naphthol
Abstract Four polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH)- degrading bacteria, namely Arthrobacter sulphureus RKJ4, Acidovorax delafieldii P4-1, Brevibacterium sp. HL4 and Pseudomonas sp. DLC-P11, capableExpand
Degradation of 4-nitrophenol, 2-chloro-4-nitrophenol, and 2,4-dinitrophenol by Rhodococcus imtechensis strain RKJ300.
A bacterial strain Rhodococcus imtechensis RKJ300 (= MTCC 7085(T) = JCM 13270(T)) was isolated from pesticide-contaminated soil of Punjab by the enrichment technique on minimal medium containingExpand
Role of molecular interaction in stability of celecoxib-PVP amorphous systems.
Stabilization of an amorphous solid against devitrification can be achieved using additives that interact specifically with the parent molecule, and restrain it from rearranging into a crystalExpand
Plasmid-encoded degradation of p-nitrophenol and 4-nitrocatechol by Arthrobacter protophormiae.
Arthrobacter protophormiae strain RKJ100 is capable of utilizing p-nitrophenol (PNP) as well as 4-nitrocatechol (NC) as the sole source of carbon, nitrogen and energy. The degradation of PNP and NCExpand
Characterization of solid-state forms of celecoxib.
This study deals with the generation and characterization of various solid-state forms of celecoxib, a selective cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitor. The drug was subjected to polymorphic screen usingExpand
Design, synthesis, biological evaluation and molecular docking of curcumin analogues as antioxidant, cyclooxygenase inhibitory and anti-inflammatory agents.
Curcuminoids were isolated from Curcuma longa and their pyrazole and isoxazole analogues were synthesized and evaluated for antioxidant, COX-1/COX-2 inhibitory and anti-inflammatory activities. TheExpand
3D-QSAR studies of indole derivatives as phosphodiesterase IV inhibitors.
The 3D-QSAR studies of some indole derivatives as phosphodiesterase (PDE) type IV inhibitors was performed by Comparative Molecular Field Analysis (CoMFA) and Comparative Molecular Similarity IndicesExpand
Progress in COX-2 inhibitors: a journey so far.
The non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are diverse group of compounds used for the treatment of inflammation, since the introduction of acetylsalicylic acid in 1899. Traditional (firstExpand
FTIR studies on differential intermolecular association in crystalline and amorphous states of structurally related non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
Information on molecular interactions critically impacts the physical stability and "stabilization" strategy for the amorphous state of pharmaceuticals. The present study was designed to understandExpand
Perchloric acid adsorbed on silica gel as a new, highly efficient, and versatile catalyst for acetylation of phenols, thiols, alcohols, and amines.
Perchloric acid adsorbed on silica gel efficiently catalyses acetylation of structurally diverse phenols, alcohols, thiols, and amines under solvent free conditions.
