Composition of Indian Curry Leaf Oil
The essential oil of Indian curry leaf (Murraya koenigii Spreng.) collected from two different places in India has been investigated for its composition by GC and GC/MS and found to contain mostly monoterpenes and oxygenated monoterPenes. Expand
Anti-trichomonal, biochemical and toxicological activities of methanolic extract and some carbazole alkaloids isolated from the leaves of Murraya koenigii growing in Nigeria.
The methanolic extract of Murraya koenigii leaf was screened for toxicological and biochemical effects on rats and confirmed that the anti-trichomonal activity of the leaf may be due to its carbazole alkaloids, which have hypoglycaemic and hepatoprotective effects after prolonged use. Expand
Antifungal activity of some essential oils.
The essential oil from cymbopogan exhibited control over all the plant and food mold rot tested and the bioactive compound in the oil and its minimum inhibitory concentration were determined using TLC bioautography. Expand
Larvicidal activity of plant extracts used alone and in combination with known synthetic larvicidal agents against Aedes aegypti.
All the plants showed potential synergistic activity although showed comparatively poor larvicidal activity when tested individually. Expand
Isolation of phytoconstituents from the leaves of Murraya koenigii Linn.
Fractionation of petroleum ether partitioned ethanol extract and crude petroleum ether extract of the leaves of Murraya koenigii Linn (Rutaceae) led to the isolation of 5,8-dimethyl furanocoumarinExpand
