Many plants used as traditional medicine. Pharmacognostic studies of crude drug plays a very important role in identification of the purity and quality of crude drugs. The present study deals with pharmacognostic, preliminary phytochemical investigation of Cynodon dactylon Persoon belonging to family Poaceae. In this, pharmacognostic studies are concerned for the determination of physicochemical p...
A simple and rapid method for determination of mexiletine in pharmaceutical preparations was developed and validated using linear sweep voltammetry (LSV). The proposed method was based on electrochemical oxidation of mexiletine at platinum electrode in acetonitrile solution containing 0.1 M LiCIO4.The well-defined an oxidation peak was observed at +1.11 V. The calibration curve was linear for mexi...
