Electron spin resonance (ESR) of VO2+ doped into LiNaSO4 has been studied at 300 K on an X-band spectrometer. The ESR powder spectra have been analyzed and spin Hamiltonian parameters have been evaluated. Using the crystal-field approach, a theoretical estimate of the ground state wave functions of VO2+ in LiMSO4 (M = Na, K) has been made from the ESR data. The dipolar hyperfine coupling constant P and Fermi contact parameter K have also been estimated. © 2010 Springer-Verlag. Source

Dietary constituents are shown to play an important role in the development of diabetes. Studies have shown that the fruits of Emblica officinalis Gaertn or Phyllanthus emblica Linn, colloquially known as Indian gooseberry or amla and/or some of its important constituents (including gallic acid, gallotanin, ellagic acid and corilagin), possess anti-diabetic effects through their antioxidant and free radical scavenging properties. Amla has also been reported to prevent/reduce hyperglycemia, cardiac complications, diabetic nephropathy, neuropathy, cataractogenesis and protein wasting. However, clinical trial data with human subjects are limited and preliminary. For the first time this review summarizes the anti-diabetic affects of amla and also addresses the mechanisms mediating these properties. This journal is © the Partner Organisations 2014. Source
