Preparation of some novel heterocyclic compounds with long alkyl and alkenyl chain of cytotoxic activity. Gamma linolenic acid, a poly unsaturated fatty acid and stearic acid, a saturated fatty acid were isolated from the microalga Spirulina platensis. Some novel gamma linolenic acid and stearic acid analogues having 1,3,4-oxadiazole and 1,2,4-triazole were… (More)
Quinoxaline-2, 3-dione obtained from cyclocondensation reaction of o-phenylene diamine with oxalic acid was reacted with three different ketones and formaldehyde to give the corresponding Mannich bases in satisfactory yield. Their structures were confirmed by using (1)H NMR, IR, and mass analysis. In pharmacological evaluation, the synthesized compounds… (More)
The present study deals with the optimization of some novel heterocyclic compounds containing two biological scaffolds such as long alkyl/alkenyl side chain of fatty acids and five-membered azoles named as 1,3,4-oxadiazole, 1,2,4-triazole and 1,3,4-thiadiazoles as antidepressant agents. In-silico docking studies have been carried out for the tested… (More)
A convenient synthesis of novel isoxazole-substituted 9-anilinoacridine derivatives 5a-j was reported. The compounds were confirmed by physical and analytical data and screened for in vitro antioxidant activity by DPPH method, reducing power assay and total antioxidant capacity method. The cytotoxic activity of the compounds was also studied in HEp-2 cell… (More)
A number of novel ofloxacin analogues were synthesized by modifying the carboxylic acid at C-6. To investigate the antimicrobial data on structural basis, in-silico docking studies of the tested compounds into the crystal structure of topoisomerase II using Autodock vina 4.0 program was performed in order to predict the affinity and orientation of the… (More)
Chitosan adsorbed microspheres containing tetanus toxoid were prepared in the size range of 10 mum to 75 mum, by emulsion-cross linking technique at different speeds of agitation. The amount of tetanus toxoid incorporated into chitosan microspheres were estimated by limes flocculation test and in vivo evaluation of tetanus toxoid adsorbed chitosan… (More)
The essential oil of leaves of various cupressus species Viz., C.glauca, C.funebris, C.lawsonia, C. macrocarpa & C. sempervirens have been studied for their antimicrobial activity against certain gram positive [B. substilis, S.aureus], gram negative [E.coli, P.aeruginesa] and fungi (A.niger, A.flavus, C.albicans & A. fumigatus) using two fold serial… (More)
Leaves of Dodonaea viscose Linn are used in the treatment of gout and rheumatism. This present work deals with pharmacognostical studies such as leaf constants, ash values, extractive values and also preliminary phytochemical studies of leaves of Dodonaea Viscosa Linn.
