BIOSYNTHESIS AND STRUCTURAL CHARACTERIZATION OF SILVER AND GOLD NANOPARTICLES USING AQUEOUS STEM EXTRACT OF ALHAGI MAURORUM
Green synthesis is a cheaper, clean, non toxic route for synthesis of large scale nanoparticles without the use of high energy, pressure, temperature and toxic chemicals. With the help of microbial enzyme and plant extract nanoparticles are easily synthesized by utilizing their antioxidant and reducing properties. In present study, biosynthesis of silver and gold nanoparticles by utilizing Alhagi ...
PROTECTIVE PROFILE OF CITRULLUS COLOCYNTHIS ROOT EXTRACTS ON LIPID PROFILE STATUS IN STZ CHALLENGED RATS
Diabetes mellitus is one of the widespread and severe metabolic disorders in human all over the world. It is initially characterised by a loss of glucose homeostasis resulting from defects in insulin secretion, insulin action or both resulting in impaired glucose metabolism and other energy yielding fuels such as lipids and proteins. The association of hyperglycaemia with altered lipid parameters ...
PRILIMINARY PHYTOCHEMICAL SCREENING AND IN-VITRO ANTICONVULSANT ACTIVITY OF METHANOLIC EXTRACT OF LEAVES OF CINNAMOMUM TAMALA (BUCH.-HAM) T. NEES & EBERM (FAMILY- LAURACEAE)
Objective: To perform the phytochemical screening and anticonvulsant activity of methanolic extract of leaves of Cinnamomum tamala (Buch.-Ham) T. Nees & Eberm.
