Eucalyptus cinerea, known as silver dollar tree, has few descriptions in traditional medicine. Chemical composition and antimicrobial properties of the essential oils of leaves, flowers and fruits, collected seasonally, were determined by GC/MS and disk diffusion/MIC, respectively. 1,8-Cineole was the main compound, particularly in fresh leaves-Spring(More)
Atenolol [4-(2-hydroxy-isopropylaminopropoxy)-phenylacetamide], is a cardioselective beta1-adrenergic receptor blocking agent prescribed for treatment of hypertension, angina pectoris and cardiac arrhythmias. However, most of these medicines are not formulated for easy or accurate administration to children. Atenolol is unstable in solutions and therefore(More)
A stability-indicating reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography method is developed and validated for the determination of venlafaxine hydrochloride (VEN) in extended-release capsules containing spherical beads and for dissolution studies. The method is carried out on a Luna C(18) column (250 mm x 4.6 mm) maintained at 35 degrees C. The mobile(More)
Extended-release primaquine tablets were developed using polyethylene oxide (PEO) as a hydrophilic swellable polymer with different amounts and molecular weights (4 × 106 and 8 × 106). Investigations were carried out in order to verify the matrix performance. The evaluated parameters were weight, hardness, thickness, friability, and drug content. The(More)
In order for the pharmacological action of a topical dermal drug product to occur, the drug must first be released from the vehicle to be available to penetrate the skin layers and reach the site of action. Drug release is mainly dependent on the characteristics of the formulation. Currently, to register a generic or a similar drug product in Brazil(More)
A thermoanalyical study of pure atenolol and a commercial tablets containinf the drug were carried out using thermogravimetric (TG) and differencial scanning calorimetry (DSC) techniques. Nonisothermal method was employed to determine kinetics data of decomposition process. In order to evaluate interaction observed in the commercial tablets, compatibility(More)
In this work, a thermal behavior study of cinnamic acid was made using isothermal and nonisothermal kinetics methods. Thermogravimetric curves were obtained to determine the kinetic parameters of its decomposition process. Cinnamic acid was melted at T Peak = 135.5°C and the decomposition started at 160°C. The obtained activation energy was 71.13 kJ/mol and(More)
An accurate, simple, reproducible, and sensitive liquid chromatographic method is developed and validated to quantitate acyclovir (ACV) in cross-linked chitosan microspheres produced by spray drying. The analysis is carried out using a reversed-phase C18 column with UV-vis detection at 254 nm. The mobile phase is diluted with pure water and acetonitrile(More)
A simple, rapid, and sensitive reversed-phase column high-performance liquid chromatographic method was developed and validated to quantify camptothecin (CPT) in polymeric nanocapsule suspensions. The chromatographic separation was performed on a Supelcosil LC-18 column (15 cm x 4.6 mm id, 5 microm) using a mobile phase consisting of methanol-10 mM KH2PO4(More)
Photodynamic inactivation (PDI) is an efficient approach for the elimination of a series of microorganisms; however, PDI involving phytopathogenic filamentous fungi is scarce in the literature. In the present study, we have demonstrated the photoinactivating properties of five cationic meso-(1-methyl-4-pyridinio)porphyrins on conidia of the phytopathogen(More)
