Fatty acid composition, physicochemical properties, antioxidant and cytotoxic activity of apple seed oil obtained from apple pomace.
The physicochemical properties of apple seed oil were comparable with edible food oil, indicating its better stability and broad application in the food and pharmaceutical industries, and its potential as an anticancer agent.
Chemical Composition and In Vitro Cytotoxic Activity of Essential Oil of Leaves of Malus domestica Growing in Western Himalaya (India)
The chemical composition and cytotoxic activity of leaves essential oil of M. domestica, tested against three cancer cell lines, namely, C-6 (glioma cells), A549 (human lung carcinoma), CHOK1 (Chinese hamster ovary cells), and THP-1 (human acute monocytic leukemia cell) are exploited.
UPLC-PDA quantification of chemical constituents of two different varieties (golden and royal) of apple leaves and their antioxidant activity.
This study showed that apple leaves (both varieties) contain considerable amounts of polyphenols and flavonoids and are also a promising source of phloridzin.
Evaluation of Antioxidant Activity of Picrorhiza kurroa (Leaves) Extracts
Aim of this study was to explore antioxidant study of P. kurroa leaves for a new source of naturally occurring antioxidants in Ayurvedic medicine.
Arabinan-Type Polysaccharides from Industrial Apple Pomace Waste
Chemical investigation of industrial apple pomace waste has led to the isolation of two water-soluble polysaccharides (AS-3 and AS-5). Both polysaccharides were identified as arabinans on the basis
Silica-supported boric acid assisted conversion of mono- and poly-saccharides to 5-hydroxymethylfurfural in ionic liquid
Silica-supported boric acid has been prepared and applied as heterogeneous catalyst for the direct conversion of inexpensive and biorenewable mono- and polysaccharides to 5-hydroxymethylfurfural
UPLC–DAD quantification of chemical constituents of Potentilla atrosanguinea roots and their antioxidant activity
An ultra performance liquid chromatography–diode array detection method for the quantification of constituents of root part of P. atrosanguinea has been developed along with antioxidant activity evaluation and showed excellent free radical scavenging potential of its root part.
Chemical and in vitro cytotoxicity evaluation of essential oil from Eucalyptus citriodora fruits growing in the Northwestern Himalaya, India
Eucalyptus citriodora is a well-known source of essential oil. Essential oil from the fruit's of E. citriodora was extracted using the hydrodistillation method with the help of a Clevenger-type
Cytotoxic New Nortriterpene from Roots of Potentilla atrosanguinea var. argyrophylla and its UPLC Quantification
The present study includes the isolation of a new nortriterpene, 28-methyl-acanthochlamate, from the roots of P. atrosanguinea, which showed a significantly higher cytotoxicity against all the cells.
