EXTRACTION AND QUANTIFICATION OF PIGMENTS FROM INDIAN TRADITIONAL MEDICINAL PLANTS: A COMPARATIVE STUDY BETWEEN TREE, SHRUB AND HERB
Chlorophyll and carotenoids are important photosynthetic pigments found in higher plants, cyanobacteria and algae. Carotenoids are responsible for bright red, yellow and orange color in many fruits and vegetables. These two pigments play an important role in plant health. Chlorophyll and carotenoids are reported to contain anticancer properties. Chlorophyll and carotenoids protect skin and help in...
QUALITY BY DESIGN APPROACH FOR THE DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION OF SAXAGLIPTIN BY RP-HPLC WITH APPLICATION TO FORMULATED FORMS
Quality by Design (QbD) is a philosophy that refines the level of knowledge associated with a product that uses process understanding to deliver a product with the desired critical quality attributes. The objective of this present study was to develop and demonstrate an integrated multivariate approach to develop and quantify the constituent concentrations of saxagliptin drug in its pure and formu...
In present work, a new vanishing cream using a natural base from palm oil and palm kernel oil and standard vanishing cream using stearic acid were prepared. The creams were o/w emulsions containing suitable combination of oil phase and aqueous phase along with preservatives. Both creams were white, non-greasy and smooth on application. They were subjected to various parameters such as; pH, viscosi...
EXTRACTION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF ASTAXANTHIN FROM THE CRUSTACEAN SHELL WASTE FROM SHRIMP PROCESSING INDUSTRIES
India having a large stretch of marine coastline is advantageous as a natural resource for marine aquaculture. But the waste produce from the marine processing industries fetch a greater environmental risk as there is accumulation of wastes in huge quantity. These wastes are a larger source of natural carotenoids that have a huge pharmaceutical potentials. So proper initiatives must be taken to re...

Dendrimers are a new class of polymeric materials. They are highly branched, monodisperse macromolecules. Structural Advantages allow dendrimers to play an important role in the fields of nanotechnology, pharmaceutical and medicinal chemistry. As a result of their unique behaviour dendrimers are suitable for a wide range of biomedical and industrial applications. The paper gives a brief review of ...
The main objective of the work was to extract the active ingredient in Cymbopogon citratus leave and to formulate a mosquito repellent cream naturally obtained from medicinal plants instead of commonly available synthetic repellents and insecticides such as N-Diethyl-3methylbenzamide (DEET), which are carcinogenic and non eco-friendly. The formulation of cream have smooth texture with a pH 7.30 wh...
Black pepper, the ‘King of spices’ (Piper nigrum L.), is a widely used spice, known for its pungent odour. From time immemorial, plant sources were used in traditional systems of medicine and day-to-day common use, such as in meal preparation and cosmetic purposes. This is due to their vast pharmacological potential with minimum side effects. Among the various species of the Piperaceae family,...
Dalbergia spinosa Roxb. (Leguminosae) is a mangrove plant native to Asia and enjoys number of traditional uses. This paper describes the investigation of antibacterial and cytotoxic activity of the ethanol extract of D. spinosa leaves. Antibacterial activity of the ethanol extract of D. spinosa leaves was tested by disc diffusion assay and broth macrodilution assay. The extract was also tested for...
Pyrimidine is a 5-membered heterocyclic ring which is versatile lead compound for designing potent bioactive agents. This interesting group of compound has diverse biological activities such as antimicrobial, CNS depressant, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-convulsant, anticancer, antihelmentic, antioxidant and herbicidal. Available data represents that pyrimidine being heterocyclic planar five ...
