In the present study, the photochemistry of fluoroquinolone antibiotic drug-besifloxacin (1) was investigated under mild conditions similar to those encountered in biological systems namely aerobic as well as an anaerobic condition with UV-A light. When besifloxacin (1) was irradiated with a high-pressure mercury lamp under aerobic conditions it afforded 7-(2-Amino-5-oxo-pentylamino)-8-chloro-1-cy...
Since, the middle ages, essential oils have been widely used for bactericidal, fungicidal, insecticidal, virucidal, cosmetic and medicinal applications, especially nowadays in agriculture, food, sanitary and pharmaceutical industries. Distillation is the common mode of extraction used for aromatic plants, which results in a variety of volatile molecules such as terpenes, terpenoids, aliphatic comp...
The objective of this research is to evaluate the preliminary phytochemical analysis and antibacterial activity from the medicinal plant of Hugonia mystax of Dindigul district, Tamil Nadu. The leaves of plant Hugonia mystax was subjected to Soxhlet extraction process by using solvent ethanol. Preliminary phytochemical analysis of ethanol extract of Hugonia mystax leaves showed the presence of carb...

SUBSTANTIATION OF USING CHLORELLA GENUS MICROALGAE AS A RAW MATERIAL FOR PREPARATION OF CHEMOPREVENTIVE SUBSTANCES
The purpose of this study was to substantiate the use of suspension of Chlorella genus microalgae as the most valuable raw material for the preparation of carotene and chlorophyll а. The method is proposed for ultrasonication of Chlorella vulgaris microalgae suspension to increase the availability of biologically active substances and improve the microbiological performance of the prepared produc...
PHYTOCHEMICAL SCREENING AND FREE RADICAL SCAVENGING ACTIVITY OF HYDROETHANOLIC LEAF EXTRACT OF SENNA SIEBERIANA DC (CAESALPINIACEAE) AND ITS FRACTIONS
The aim of this study was to identify the phytochemical groups of hydroethanolic leaf extract of Senna sieberiana DC and its fractions and to investigate their free radical scavenging activity. S. sieberiana leaves were extracted with a hydroethanolic solvent. From the hydroethanolic extract 3 fractions were obtained after a liquid/liquid fractionation (dichloromethane, ethyl acetate, and water). ...
A novel coronavirus illness (COVID-19), activated by contamination with SARS-CoV-2, has frilled across 31 territories in China and more than 195 nations around the world. The change from the first side effects to intense respiratory trouble disorder (ARDS) is amazingly likely to be because of excessive cytokine discharge. There is a pivotal need to arrange sheltered and dynamic medications for act...
SIMPLE PROCEDURE FOR PREPARATION OF TRIPLE LAYERED HOMEMADE MASK AS PREVENTIVE MEASURE FOR SARS-COV-2 INFECTION
The current study was performed to prepare a three-layered homemade mask by simple procedure with the help of easily available raw materials at home in minimum duration without any major equipment like a stitching machine. The masks are useful to protect us against SARS-CoV-2 and other respiratory pathogens according to recently issued guidelines by the centre for disease control and prevention. T...
Objective: Plants live on a planet with days and seasons, affecting their phytoconstituents. The challenge is that availability of active principles in medicinal plants changes by seasonal fluctuations, so their dose pattern for therapeutic efficacy also get influenced. The best duration for the harvesting of specific secondary metabolites for better yield is not fixed. Seasonal impact show change...
