The essential oil compositions of four botanically certified and commercially available samples of Omani lubans (oleo-gum resins of Boswellia sacra Flueck.), locally known as Hoojri, Najdi, Shathari, and Shaabi in Jibali Arabic, obtained from plants growing in four different geographic locations of the Dhofar region of Oman, were analyzed by GC-FID, GC/MS,(More)
A sequential injection (SI) method was developed for the determination of chlorpheniramine (CPA), based on the reaction of this drug with tris(1,10-phenanthroline)-ruthenium(II) [Ru(phen)(3)(2+)] and peroxydisulphate (S(2)O(8)(2-)) in the presence of light. The instrumental set-up utilized a syringe pump and a multiposition valve to aspirate the reagents(More)
A novel sequential injection (SI) method was developed for the determination of penicillamine (PA) and ephedrine (EP) based on the reaction of these drugs with tris(bipyridyl)ruthenium(II) (Ru(bpy)(3)(2+)) and peroxydisulfate (S(2)O(8)(2-)) in the presence of light. Derivatization of PA and EP with aldehydes has resulted in a significant enhancement of the(More)
A simple, selective and sensitive luminescence method for the assay of piroxicam (PX) in pharmaceutical formulation is developed. The method is based on the luminescence sensitization of europium (Eu(3+)) by complexation with PX. The signal for PX-EU is monitored at lambda(ex)=358nm and lambda(em)=615nm. Optimum conditions for the formation of the complex(More)
A sensitive and specific luminescence method for the determination of ibuprofen (IB) in pharmaceutical formulations in aqueous solution is described. The method is based on the luminescence sensitization of terbium (Tb(3+)) by formation of ternary complex with IB in the presence of tri-n-octylphosphine oxide (TOPO) and Tween-20 as surfactant. The(More)
A simple, robust and sensitive sequential injection spectrophotometric method for the assay of penicillamine (PA) in pharmaceutical formulations is developed. The method was based on the complex formation when PA is reacted with iron(III) solution in hydrochloric acid media. The deep blue colored PA-iron(III) complex produced is monitored at a maximum(More)
A simple, sensitive and rapid reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) method is proposed for the analysis of some environmentally important phenols in water. The use of coumarin-6-sulphonyl chloride (C6SCl) as a fluorescence-labeling reagent has been investigated. The compound reacts with phenols within 20 min under mild conditions(More)
A new antifungal flavanone, muscanone (1), was isolated along with known naringenin (2) from Commiphora wightii (Arn.) Bhandari (Burseraceae) by directing the fractionation of an EtOH extract of the air-dried trunk of C. wightii with microbial sensitivity assay. The structures of 1 and 2 were determined from EIMS, HREIMS, DEPT, 1H-1H COSY, HSQC and HMBC(More)
The lack of potable water in arid countries leads to the use of treated sewage water (TSW) for crop growth. Mercury accumulation (up to 500 ng/g) in agricultural soil originating from daily irrigation with TSW was found at two sites fed separately from a hospital sewage plant and an industrial plant. A control site irrigated with potable water ([Hg] <0.01(More)
A highly sensitive method, based on fluorescence derivatization with 4-N,N-dimethylaminosulfonyl-7-piperazino-2,1,3-benzoxadiazol e (DBD-PZ), was developed for the determination of D- and L-lactic acid. High-performance liquid chromatographic separation of the lactic acid derivative was achieved using an octadecylsilica column followed by enantiomeric(More)
