SENSITIVE SPECTROPHOTOMETRIC DETERMINATION OF TRACE AMOUNTS OF VANADIUM (IV, V) USING DITHIOLPHENOLS AND HYDROFOB AMINS
Dithiolphenole (DP) has been synthesized and characterized with IR and NMR spectroscopic methods. A simple and spectrophotometric method has been developed for the determination of trace amounts of vanadium (IV, V). The reagents forms blue coloured insoluble in water complex with vanadium (IV, V) in a weakly acidic and slightly alkaline medium (pH 2.5 - 8.5). In the presence of hydrophobic a...
Bulk nanocomposites prepared from aqueous albumin dispersion with carbon nanotubes by removing the liquid component from the dispersion have been investigated. The composites were obtained by thermostating and exposure to LED and IR diode laser radiation. The nanocomposites obtained under laser irradiation retain their shape and properties for several years, in contrast to the composites fabricate...
AN INVESTIGATION ON THE TYPE I ANTIDIABETIC ACTIVITY OF METHANOLIC EXTRACT OF MARINE ALGAE, GRACILARIA EDULIS AND SARGASSUM POLYCYSTUM
The objective of this study was to evaluate the antidiabetic activity of methanolic extract of marine algae Sargassum polycystum (MSP) and Gracilaria edulis (MGE) in STZ induced diabetes in rats for Type I diabetic mellitus. The marine algae SP and GE were dried under shade and then powdered, and extracted with methanol. Preliminary phytochemical studies and acute toxicity studies were also carrie...
EVALUATION OF THE EFFICACY OF COMBINATION THERAPY OF AGOMELATINE, DULOXETINE AND SERTRALINE IN THE MANAGEMENT OF STRESS INDUCED DEPRESSION
There is unmet need in the treatment of stress induced depression on suggesting requirement of new therapeutic agent. A combination therapy of antidepressants sertraline (5 mg/kg), duloxetine (10 mg/kg) and agomelatine (8 mg/kg) are used in different combinations of doses by intra-peritoneal route. Swiss albino mice were used as an animal model for stress-induced depression; mice were divided into...
The work was under taken as an attempt to prepare quick release films of ebastine with the purpose of developing a dosage form for very quickly on set of action, which will be beneficial in managing severe condition of allergies, aiding in enhancement of bioavailability. It is necessary to prepare ebastine as fast dissolving oral films to bypass the first pass metabolism. Ebastine was prepared as ...
Ethylhexylglycerin is an alkyl glyceryl ether. This means that the ethyl hexyl group is bound to glycerin at one end by an ether linkage. it has been used as a common ingredient in bath products, body and hand products, cleansing products, deodorants, eye makeup, foundations, hair care products and suntan products. The compound is synthesized by esterfication of 2-Ethylhexanol and epichlorohydrin,...
