BIOLOGICAL ACTIVITIES OF EXTRACTS AND SEASONAL VARIATION IN ESSENTIAL OIL COMPOSITION FROM MYRCIARIA GLAZIOVIANA (MYRTACEAE)
Extracts from leaves, stems and flower buds of Myrciaria glazioviana were analysed for their antioxidant and anticholinesterase activity. The methanolic extracts showed the best results in reducing power (623.52 - 806.15mg AA/g of extract), DPPH radical scavenging (IC50 = 9.77 - 14.06µg/mL) and lipid peroxidation inhibition activity (21.30 - 66.80 %). These data were correlated to the total pheno...

EVALAUTION OF ANTHELMINTIC ACTIVITY OF RICINUS COMMUNIS LINN. LEAVES BY USING DIFFERENT TYPES OF SOLVENT
Aqueous and ethanol ethyl actatate chloroform methanol extracts from the leaves of Ricinus communis were investigated for their anthelmintic activity against Pheretima posthuma and and three concentrations (50, 75 and 100mg/ml) of each extract were studied for activity, in which paralysis and death time of the worm. Both the extract exhibited remarkable anthelminthic activity at all three concentr...
Objective: To analyze the pharmacognostic characteristics and physiochemical parameters of the root of Eranthemum nigrum (E. nigrum). Methods: Microscopic characters and powder analysis had been carried out with the help of a microscope. The physiochemical properties such as loss on drying, total ash value, acid insoluble ash value, water soluble ash value, extractive values and fluorescence of E....
