Conventional solvent fractionation and bioactivity based target assays were used to identify a new anti-cancer molecule from Phyllanthus urinaria, a herbal medicinal plant used in South India. At each step of the purification process the different fractions that were isolated were tested for specific anti-proliferative activity by assays measuring the(More)
In this study, the production of sugar monomers from sugarcane bagasse (SCB) by sono-assisted acid hydrolysis was performed. The SCB was subjected to sono-assisted alkaline pretreatment. The cellulose and hemicellulose recovery observed in the solid content was 99% and 78.95%, respectively and lignin removal observed during the pretreatment was about(More)
Ultrasound-assisted alkaline pretreatment of sugarcane bagasse (SCB) for fermentable sugar production was carried out and the influence of particle size, liquid to solid ratio (LSR), NaOH concentration, temperature and sonication time on delignification and reducing sugar production was ascertained with Placket-Burman design. The best combination of each(More)
Photocatalytic activity of surface fluorinated TiO(2)-P25 (F-TiO(2)-P25) in the degradation of a chlorotriazine azo dye Reactive Orange 4 (RO 4) under ambient conditions was investigated in this study. Characterization of F-TiO(2)-P25 reveals that the catalyst has a strong absorption in the UV range and the presence of F atom in the catalyst. The(More)
