Cadmium selenide (CdSe) nanocrystalline thin films in the form of upright nanocones, perpendicular to substrate surface, are grown electrochemically onto a conducting and transparent indiumtin-oxide substrate at room temperature and impact of baking under oxygen flow on their structure, morphology, optical absorbance and dark-light photoelectrochemical cell performance is explored. Crystallinity improvement followed by enhancement in the surface roughness 1119 nm and reduction in water contact angle from 60° to 22° (±0.2)° due to baking impact showed increase in crystallite size from 25 to 100 Å. Increase in current density from 0.07 to 5.61 mA/cm 2 after baking under oxygen flow has promoted the conversion efficiency to 0.5% from 0.007%. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

The elements present in medicinal plants play an important role in the treatment of diseases as described in Ayurveda. X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF) has been applied for quantitative analysis of multi elements present in stem of Achyran thes aspera Linn. A medicinal plant. XRF technique, one of the most powerful and quick multi elemental analysis with high sensitivity has been used. The data shows presence of fifty elements in varying concentration. It indicates association of five macro elements, twenty-seven trace elements & eighteen heavy elements.

Ayurveda is a 5000 year-old system of natural healing that has its origins in the Vedic culture of India. In the last few decades there has been an exponential growth in the field of herbal medicine. Medicinal plants and herbs contain substances known to modern and ancient civilizations for their healing properties. They were the sole source of active principles capable of curing man's ailments. Thus natural products have been a major source of drugs for centuries. Aglaia lawii is a medicinally important plant of family meliaceae. All parts of the tree have medicinal properties. Taking into consideration the medicinal importance of the plant, the volatile organic matter from the leaves of this plant was analyzed for the first time using GC-MS and the structures were confirmed by genesis. The results of the GC-MS analysis confirmed the presence of twelve compounds. The major constituents were 3,7-cyclodecadene-1-methanol,Veridiflorol,4,1-isopropyl-1,6-dimethyl-1,2,3, Cyclohexa methanol, 4- ethenyl-α-α 4-trimethyl-, Globulol etc. The presence of various bioactive compounds justifies the use of A. lawii leaves for various ailments by traditional practitioners. © 2014, Sphinx Knowledge House.

Ayurveda reports use of herbal medicines and metal salts in the treatment of various diseases. Elements play an important role in metabolism in human body. Aglaia lawii (white) is a medicinal plant belongs to Meliaceae family. Stem, bark, leaves, flowers, and fruits of this plant are used in Ayurvedic preparations to cure fever, diarrhea, inflammation and wounds etc. Literature survey reveals that very few reports of chemical analysis of this plant are available. Metals play an important role in the metabolism. The deficiency or excess of trace elements lead to various complications and metabolic disorders in human being. The present work includes quantitative determination of various elements from the leaves of Aglaia lawii by using x-ray fluorescence technique (XRF). The result indicate the presence of K, Ca, Si as macro elements, Mg, Fe, Co, Cr, Cu, Ni micro elements and Ti, Mn as trace elements. Quantitative amount of these elements is noted.

Antibiotics are commonly used to treat most microbial infections. But their irrational uses, resistance of bacteria towards them and side-effects have put their significance in jeopardy. Medicinal plants are known to cure microbial diseases and have been used since ancient times. Besides, they are easily available and exhibit minimum side effects. In the present study, a few medicinal plants, found commonly in and around Sangli district were checked for their anti-microbial activity against an opportunistic pathogen Escherichia coli isolate and standard culture of E. coli ATCC 25928. Aqueous extracts of ten selected medicinal plants and ten selected antibiotics were used during the course of study. The aim was to deliberate upon whether they can be useful as an alternative for allopathic therapy. Escherichia coli isolate was found susceptible to six out of ten aqueous plant extracts and all ten standard antibiotics were used for treating common infections. E. coli ATCC 25928 was found susceptible to seven aqueous plant extracts and five standard antibiotics. This suggests that the aqueous plant extracts under investigation have the potential to be considered for alternate medical purposes as anti-bacterial agents.

Cleome viscosa, a common weed from family Capparidaceae is medicinally important in Ayurveda and it is used as food material. Detection of amino acids from various extracts of Cleome viscosa seeds were carried out in different mobile phases using paper chromatographic technique. The results obtained were compared with the standard amino acids in all respective mobile phases. Two mobile phases showed promising results. DL- Aspartic acid, LHydroxy proline, L- Proline, DL-Serine, 3- DL- Alanine, DL-2- Amino -N- Butyric acid and L- Tyrosine were common in both phases. Total fifteen amino acids were detected from aqueous and saline extracts of the plant.
