Development and validation of an RP-HPLC method for quantitative determination of vanillin and related phenolic compounds in Vanilla planifolia.
The method showed good linearity, high precision, and good recovery of compounds of interest and would be useful for analytical research and for routine analysis of vanilla extracts for their quality control. Expand
Isolation and Identification of a Novel Strain of Pseudomonas chlororaphis Capable of Transforming Isoeugenol to Vanillin†
The isolate isolated by conventional enrichment process from soils of Ocimum field showed potential to be a good candidate for biotechnological production of vanillin from isoeugenol and further studies for standardization and optimization for higher yield needs to be investigated. Expand
Indian calamus (Acorus calamus L.): not a tetraploid
Amongst phenotypic characters, lower specific leaf weight values, early autumn senescence and late emergence in spring in a population can be indicators for locating accessions with low β-asarone contents. Expand
RP-HPTLC densitometric determination and validation of vanillin and related phenolic compounds in accelerated solvent extract of Vanilla planifolia*.
A simple, fast and sensitive RP-HPTLC method is developed for simultaneous quantitative determination of vanillin and related phenolic compounds in ethanolic extracts of Vanilla planifolia pods and showed good linearity, high precision and good recovery of compounds of interest. Expand
Antioxidant activity and identification of bioactive compounds from leaves of Anthocephalus cadamba by ultra-performance liquid chromatography/electrospray ionization quadrupole time of flight mass
The potential of the extract/fractions to scavenge different free radicals in different systems indicated that they may be useful therapeutic agents for treating radical-related pathologic damage. Expand
Immunomodulatory active compounds from Tinospora cordifolia.
Seven immunomodulatory active compounds belonging to different classes have been isolated and characterised indicating that the immunommodulatory activity of Tinospora cordifolia may be attributed to the synergistic effect of group of compounds. Expand
In vitro, in vivo and pharmacokinetic assessment of amikacin sulphate laden polymeric nanoparticles meant for controlled ocular drug delivery
The rationale of current exploration was to formulate positively charged amikacin-loaded polymeric nanoparticles providing a controlled release attribute. Amikacin sulphate-loaded nanoparticles wereExpand
Synthesis and SAR investigation of natural phenylpropene-derived methoxylated cinnamaldehydes and their novel Schiff bases as potent antimicrobial and antioxidant agents
A series of cinnamyl compounds were synthesized from abundantly available methoxylated phenylpropenes and evaluated for their antimicrobial activity by the broth microdilution method against fourteenExpand
A comprehensive review on vanilla flavor: Extraction, isolation and quantification of vanillin and others constituents
A comprehensive account of different extraction processes and chromatographic techniques applied for the separation, identification and determination of chemical constituents of vanilla and its physico-chemical and bioactive properties are provided. Expand
Microwave-assisted efficient extraction of different parts of Hippophae rhamnoides for the comparative evaluation of antioxidant activity and quantification of its phenolic constituents by
The outcome of different extraction procedures on the antioxidant activity of seeds, leaves, pulp, and fruits of Hippophae rhamnoides (sea buckthorn or SBT) was investigated by two different bioassays: 2,2'-azino-bis(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) diammonium salt (ABTS) and DPPH radical scavenging assays.
