Processing of apple pomace for bioactive molecules.
Recent research trends reveal that there is an increase in the utilization of apple pomace as a food processing residue for the extraction of value added products such as dietary fibre, protein, natural antioxidants, biopolymers, pigments and compounds with unique properties.
Biology and chemistry of Ginkgo biloba.
The main bioactive constituents of Ginkgo biloba are terpene trilactones and flavonoid glycosides which are considered responsible for the pharmacological activities of its standardized leaf extract.
Development of biodegradable nanoparticles for delivery of quercetin.
The less fluorescence quenching efficiency of quercetin-PLA nanoparticles than free quercETin on BSA confirms the controlled release of quERCetin from PLA nanoparticles and pave way for encapsulating various therapeutically less useful highly active antioxidant molecules towards the development of better therapeutic compounds.
Traditional uses, phytochemistry and pharmacology of Ficus religiosa: a review.
F. religiosa emerged as a good source of traditional medicine for the treatment of asthma, diabetes, diarrhea, epilepsy, gastric problems, inflammatory disorders, infectious disorders and sexual disorders, and there is a need of phytochemical standardization and bioactivity-guided identification of bioactive metabolites.
Characterization of volatile components of Kangra orthodox black tea by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry
Abstract To characterize Kangra tea flavour, volatile components of Kangra orthodox black tea ( Camellia sinensis (L.) O. Kuntze) were isolated by two different methods viz. simultaneous distillation
Simultaneous determination of sugars and picrosides in Picrorhiza species using ultrasonic extraction and high-performance liquid chromatography with evaporative light scattering detection.
A simple, sensitive, selective and reliable HPLC method based on ultrasonic extraction and evaporative light scattering detection (ELSD) has been developed and validated for the simultaneous determination of important sugars and picrosides in two species Picrorhiza kurroa and P. scrophulariiflora.
Isolation and identification of phosphate solubilizing bacteria able to enhance the growth and aloin-A biosynthesis of Aloe barbadensis Miller.
The effect of four phosphate solubilizing bacteria (PSB) was studied on growth and aloin-A content of Aloe barbadensis in soil containing tricalcium phosphate (TCP) and the treatment of plants with individual or mixture of these increased soil available P, P uptake in plants and plant growth.
Essential oil composition of Damask rose (Rosa damascena Mill.) distilled under different pressures and temperatures
Experiments were conducted on field distillation unit to distil rose oil and rose water from the fresh flowers of Damask rose (Rosa damascena Mill.) under different pressures and temperatures to
Simulation of Eucalyptus cinerea oil distillation: A study on optimization of 1,8-cineole production
Abstract Cineolic essential oils are used in medicinal, perfumery and flavour preparations. 1,8-Cineole, being an ecofriendly compound, has the potential to replace the ozone depleting industrial
Domestication of wild marigold (Tagetes minuta L.) as a potential economic crop in Western Himalaya and North Indian plains
Tagetes oil contains three major constituents of monoterpene ketones namely ocimenones E&Z, tagetones E &Z and dihydrotagetone and a hydrocarbon ocimene which are important base materials for synthesizing new aroma molecules.
