The term 'phenolics' refers to a vast array of biologically active compounds ubiquitous in plants, many of which have been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years. Umbelliferone, psoralen, and eugenol are widely occurring phenolic compounds of plant origin, for which many biological activities against chronic diseases have been reported. A(More)
The biodegradation of nitrobenzene (NB) and 2,4-dinitrophenol (DNP) in NB plant wastewater has been studied using acclimated activated sludge in a batch bioreactor. The gas chromatographic (GC) monitoring shows simultaneous utilization of these two substrates, and both NB and DNP were ultimately biodegraded. The primary and ultimate biodegradation rates(More)
A simple, sensitive, and specific thin-layer chromatography densitometric method has been developed for the simultaneous quantitation of strychnine and brucine. These two marker compounds are quantitated in the seeds of Strychnos nux-vomica, Strychnos ignatii, and its formulations. The method involves densitometric evaluation of strychnine and brucine after(More)
A method is proposed for the extraction of microgram levels of tellurium(IV) from halide media with tris-(2-ethyl hexyl) phosphate dissolved in toluene as extractant. The optimum conditions have been evaluated from a critical study of acid concentration, extractant concentration, period of equilibration and effect of solvent. Tellurium ion from the organic(More)
Copper and zinc were extracted from salicylate solution into Aliquat 336 dissolved in toluene and determined in the organic phase spectrophotometrically using 1-(2-pyridylazo)-2-naphthol. The determination of copper and zinc was also carried out titrimetrically or by atomic absorption spectrometry after stripping the metal ions from the organic phase. The(More)
A simple, rapid and reproducible method for the extractive separation of molybdenum(VI) and rhenium(VII) is proposed using triphenylphosphine oxide (TPPO) dissolved in toluene as an extractant. The extractions are carried out from the hydrochloric and hydrobromic acid medium. The extraction of molybdenum is quantitative from 2.54-3.10 M hydrochloric acid(More)
Tris(2-ethylhexyl)phosphate is proposed as an extractant for scandium(III) and yttrium(III) from salicylate media. The optimum extraction conditions are evaluated and described. The method permits mutual separation of scandium(III) and yttrium(III) and can be used for the separation and determination of scandium(III) and yttrium(III) from binary and(More)
