TLDR
The n-hexane chloroform, ethyl acetate, n-butanol and water fractions of the selected plants were investigated for the secondary metabolites including Phenols, Tannins, Flavonoids, Coumarins, Quninous, Alkaloids, Triterpenes, Steroids, Saponins and diterpenes. Expand
Antifungal potential and phytochemical analysis of extracts from seven Cameroonian plants against late blight pathogen Phytophthora infestans
TLDR
This research presents a new approach to studying the phytobiochemistry of cannabis by utilizing a simple and scalable approach called “shots fired” instead of the traditional “spatially aggregating” method. Expand
Antifungal and phytochemical screening of some Nigerian medicinal plant extracts against toxigenic Aspergillus flavus
TLDR
Ethanolic extracts of M. oleifera, O. gratissimum and C. volubile were efficient using ethanolic extraction method and are used to cure infections caused by toxigenic A. flavus and the extracts may have role as pharmaceutical and preservatives. Expand
ISOLATION OF BIOACTIVE COMPOUNDS
Phytochemistry is the study of phyto-constituents present in all natural products. Phytochemicals are chemical compounds formed during the plant’s normal metabolic processes. These chemicals areExpand
