Chemical and antioxidant properties of Laurocerasus officinalis Roem. (cherry laurel) fruit grown in the Black Sea region.
Besides being a good source of nutrients, L. officinalis was found to provide a rich source of protective antioxidant compounds that were comparable to or higher than those of the reference antioxidants.
Synthesis of new 1,2,4-triazole compounds containing Schiff and Mannich bases (morpholine) with antioxidant and antimicrobial activities
Among the newly synthesized triazole derivatives, the Schiff base 4d and the Mannich base 5d carrying nitro substituent on the thiophene ring showed promising antibacterial and antifungal activity, with lower MIC values than the standard antibacterial ampicillin.
A new colorimetric DPPH• scavenging activity method with no need for a spectrophotometer applied on synthetic and natural antioxidants and medicinal herbs
The advantages of the new colorimetric determination of the antioxidant activity using a scanner and freely available Image J software are the use of lower amounts of reagents and solvents, no need for costly spectrophotometers, and thus significantly lowered costs, and convenient implementation in any environment and situation.
Assessment of kinetics, thermodynamics and equilibrium parameters of Cr(VI) biosorption onto Pinus brutia Ten
The aim of the present study was to investigate the sorption potential of pine bark (Pinus brutia Ten.) for removal of Cr(VI) ions from aqueous solutions. The biosorption characteristics of Cr(VI)
