A comparison of chemical, antioxidant and antimicrobial studies of cinnamon leaf and bark volatile oils, oleoresins and their constituents.
In antimicrobial investigations, using inverted petriplate and food poison techniques, the leaf and bark volatile oils has been found to be highly effective against all the tested fungi except Aspergillus ochraceus, however, leaf oleoresin has shown inhibition only for Penicillium citrinum whereas bark olerosin has caused complete mycelial zone inhibition for As pergillus flavus and A. och raceus.

Chemistry, antioxidant and antimicrobial investigations on essential oil and oleoresins of Zingiber officinale.
Though, both essential oil and oleoresins were found to be effective, essential oil was finding to be better than the olerosins. Expand
Chemical constituents, antifungal and antioxidative potential of Foeniculum vulgare volatile oil and its acetone extract
Abstract GC and GC–MS analysis of Foeniculum vulgare volatile oil showed the presence of 35 components containing 96.4% of the total amount. The major component was trans -anethole (70.1%). TheExpand
Comparative study of chemical composition and antioxidant activity of fresh and dry rhizomes of turmeric (Curcuma longa Linn.).
Results showed that alpha-turmerone, a major component in fresh rhizome is only minor one in dry rhizomes and the content of beta-turMERone in dry Rhizomes is less than a half amount found in freshRhizomes. Expand
Chemical Constituents, Antimicrobial Investigations, and Antioxidative Potentials of Anethum graveolens L. Essential Oil and Acetone Extract: Part 52
ABSTRACT: The antioxidant, antifungal, and antibacterial potentials of essential oil and acetone extract of Anethum graveolens L. were investigated in the present study. The extract has shownExpand
A molecular based strategy for rapid diagnosis of toxigenic Fusarium species associated to cereal grains from Argentina.
The results indicated that the PCR assays evaluated in this work are reliable diagnostic tools to detect the main toxigenic Fusarium species associated to cereal grains in Argentina. Expand
Chemical constituents and antimicrobial and antioxidant potentials of essential oil and acetone extract of Nigella sativa seeds
The antifungal, antibacterial and antioxidant potentials of essential oil and acetone extract of black cumin were investigated by different techniques. In the inverted petriplate method, theExpand
Chemical constituents, antifungal and antioxidative effects of ajwain essential oil and its acetone extract.
The acetone extract of ajwain essential oil showed better antioxidative activity for linseed oil as compared with synthetic antioxidants such as butylated hydroxyl toluene andbutylatedhydroxyl anisole. Expand
Studies on essential oils, Part 41. Chemical composition, antifungal, antioxidant and sprout suppressant activities of coriander (Coriandrum sativum) essential oil and its oleoresin
Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis of the seed oil of coriander (Coriandrum sativum) showed the presence of 52 components, accounting for 98.45% of the total oil. The majorExpand
Antioxidant and biocidal activities of Carum nigrum (seed) essential oil, oleoresin, and their selected components.
Both oil and oleoresin could be used as an additive in food and pharmaceutical preparations after screening and were able to reduce the oxidation rate of the mustard oil in the accelerated condition at 60 degrees C in comparison with synthetic antioxidants. Expand
