Evaluation of the antimicrobial activity of vangueria volkensii bark, fruit, leaf, and stem extracts

Vangueria volkensii bark, fruits, leaves, and stems were sequentially extracted via Soxhlet extraction using petroleum ether (PE), acetone (ACE), and ethanol (ETOH) solvents and the antimicrobial activity was determined via the size of the zones of inhibition.



Antimicrobial Activities and Phytochemical Profiles of Endemic Medicinal Plants of Mauritius

It was found that aqueous extracts of both plants possess broad-spectrum antibacterial properties against the test organisms compared to methanol extracts, which gave poor inhibition zones, and the antibacterial substance within these plants seemed to be most prominent in the leaves and least in the twigs.

Biologic Propensities and Phytochemical Profile of Vangueria madagascariensis J. F. Gmelin (Rubiaceae): An Underutilized Native Medicinal Food Plant from Africa

Given the dearth of information on the biologic propensities of VM, this study has established valuable primary information which has opened new perspectives for further pharmacological research.

Composition, in vitro antioxidant and antitumor properties of essential oil from the seeds of Moringa oleifera

GC-MS analyses of M. oleifera essential oil revealed the presence of 24 components. Naphthalene was the major constituent of M. oleifera seeds essential oil representing (36%) followed by, Benzene

Anti-Microbial and Physico-Chemical Properties of Processed and Raw Honeys of Mauritius

Honey samples used in this study can be considered as valuable food products from their antimicrobial properties’ point of view and can have clinical potential and Physicochemical parameters of different honeys were observed to vary significantly with respect to their floral origin.

Anti‐ and pro‐oxidant activity of rutin and quercetin derivatives

Flavonoids cannot only be considered purely as antioxidants, since under certain reaction conditions they can also display pro‐oxidant activity, which could explain, in part, the observed toxicity of some flavonoids in‐vivo.

Volatile Components of the Fruits of Vangueria madagascariensis J. F. Gmel. from Cuba

Abstract The volatile constituents of the fruits of Vangueria madagascariensis J. F. Gmel. growing in Cuba were isolated by simultaneous distillation/solvent extraction and analyzed by GC and GC/MS.

Biological relevance of terpenoids. Overview focusing on mono-, di- and tetraterpenes.

This paper reviews the literature on mono-, di- and tetraterpenes, with special focus on their impact on human health to answer the question of their biofunctionality, and special emphasis will be placed on their different mode of action.

Antioxidative properties of xanthan on the autoxidation of soybean oil in cyclodextrin emulsion

The autoxidation of soybean oil in a cyclodextrin emulsion system was studied in the presence of an emulsion stabilizer consisting of polysaccharides such as xanthan, tragacanth gum, and

Ethnobotany of Wild and Semi-Wild Edible Fruit Species used by Maale and Ari Ethnic Communities in Southern Ethiopia

Wild and semi-wild tree fruit species used by the Maale and Ari communities in southern Ethiopia and the conservation status of these resources are studied to preserve the local knowledge and implement conservation strategies that protect the remaining fruit trees.
