Phenolic compounds, polyphenols, and flavonoids occur ubiquitously in plant kingdom, because they are important in plants for normal growth development and defense against infection and injury. Currently, there are no reports available on the phenolic compounds obtained from the residues of the oil-extracting process from defatted castor seed powder. Our studies, for the first time, in methanol–ether extract showed five low-molecular weight phenolic compounds namely p-coumaric acid, ferulic… 
Sacha inchi (Plukenetia volubilis L.) shell: an alternative source of phenolic compounds and antioxidants
Summary Sacha inchi seed (SI) is known as a rich source of oil with high content of polyunsaturared fatty acids of the ω-3 and ω-6 type (~85% of total fatty acids). However, few studies have
Castor oil (Ricinus communis): a review on the chemical composition and physicochemical properties
Ricinus communis is an annual oilseed crop commonly known as castor. It is sometimes called castor bean, but it’s not a true bean in nature. Castor plant, belonging to the spurge family Euphorbiaceae
Dwarf hybrids of the bioenergy crop Ricinus communis suitable for mechanized harvesting reveal differences in morpho-physiological characteristics and seed metabolic profiles
The morphological characteristics and the ex situ performance of four newly developed R. communis hybrids focusing on plant architecture in order to facilitate mechanized harvesting are described and seed metabolic profiling revealed more than 60 different primary and secondary metabolites, at varied levels in each hybrid.
Ferulic acid as a comonomer in the synthesis of a novel polymeric chain with biological properties
In this study, ferulic acid was copolymerized with methacrylic acid to obtain a useful material with both antioxidant and antifungal properties. An ascorbic acid/hydrogen peroxide redox pair was used
Anti-breast Cancer Agents Derived from Plants
This paper tried to analyze anti-breast cancer potencies of quite a few extracts from different plant sources and to compare their anti-proliferative efficiency of crude extracts with actions of their purified ingredients.
Comparison of polyphenol extractions from olive pomace and solid fraction of olive mill waste water
Yields and purities of the polyphenols extracted from solid fraction of OMWW were higher than those of thePolyphenol extracted from olive pomace with ethanol at 70 min of extraction and 10 Min of agitation time with solvent-to-solid ratio of 15.
Antioxidant and spectroscopic studies of crosslinked polymers synthesized by grafting polymerization of ferulic acid
A novel, simple synthetic strategy for the preparation of crosslinked polymers with significant antioxidant properties is proposed. Ferulic acid (FA), a well-known antioxidant compound, due to its
Synthesis of methacrylic-ferulic acid copolymer with antioxidant properties by single-step free radical polymerization.
Good antioxidant activity was demonstrated by obtained materials, showing the efficiency of the polymerization method, and this material could be useful in the pharmaceutical field and in the food industry (food packaging).
Enhanced mechanical, thermal and biocompatible nature of dual component electrospun nanocomposite for bone tissue engineering
The newly developed porous PU nanocomposite scaffold comprising CO and NO may serve as a potential candidate for bone tissue engineering.


Chia seeds as a source of natural lipid antioxidants
Chia (Salvia sp) seeds were investigated as a source of natural lipid antioxidants. Methanolic and aqueous extracts of defatted chia seeds possessed potent antioxidant activity. Analysis of 2 batches
Antioxidant Activity and Total Phenolics in Selected Fruits, Vegetables, and Grain Products
The antioxidant activities and total phenolics of 28 plant products, including sunflower seeds, flaxseeds, wheat germ, buckwheat, and several fruits, vegetables, and medicinal plants were determined.
Phenolic acids in flaxseed
Ninety-six samples of flaxseed from eight cultivars grown at four locations in western Canada for three years were used to study the effect of cultivar, location, and growing season on the phenolic

The chemistry of castor oil and its derivatives is reviewed with particular reference to work done in India in general and at the Regional Research Laboratory in Hyderabad in particular. Topics
The Component Fatty Acids and Glycerides of Castor Oil
Gas-liquid chromatographic analysis of methyl esters of two samples of castor oil gave the following (as wt %): palmitate 1.2, 0.9; stearate 0.7, 1.2; arachidate 0.3, 0.2; hexadecenoate 0.2, 0.2;
Production, chemistry, and commercial applications of various chemicals from castor oil
The presence of a hydroxyl group, in addition to an olefinic linkage, in the predominating fatty acid of castor oil gives this vegetable oil many unique and interesting properties. Castor oil
however (for it was the literal soul of the life of the Redeemer, John xv. io), is the peculiar token of fellowship with the Redeemer. That love to God (what is meant here is not God’s love to men)
