The catalytic activity of silica supported Schiff base metal complexes have been studied for the oxidation of benzyl alcohol, using hydrogen peroxide, which gave benzaldehyde as a major product. Silica supported Schiff base complexes gave better results compared to unsupported Schiff base complexes. Schiff base metal complexes such as Cr(VI), Mo(VI) and W(VI) have played significant role to enhance their conversion and selectivity. Among these Cr(VI) showed better conversion.

Objective: Aim of our study is spectroscopic determination of total phenol and flavonoid contents of Aglaia lawii. Methods: Aglaia lawii leaves were collected, powdered and extracted with ethyl acetate, acetone, ethanol and methanol separately. The present study was designed to investigate the content of phenols and flavonoids of various extracts of aerial parts of A.lawii. Results: All extracts revealed presence of phenol and flavonoid. The content of phenols and flavonoids of the investigated plant parts are differed. The content of total phenolics in the extracts were determined. The leaves contain the maximum and the bark contains the minimum amount of phenols. The flavonoid content of the fruit was quite high compared to that of the leaves, stem, bark and the seed. Conclusion: The present investigation revealed that the leaves stem, bark seed and fruit of A.lawii contain significant amount of phenols and flavonoids. The objective of this study was to get information of the amount of phenolics and flavonoids in different parts of A.lawii. Further intention of this study is to correlate relationship of these secondary metabolites to possible biological activities and evaluate A.lawii as a potential source of natural bioactive chemicals.

Tecoma stans, from the family Bignoniaceae is an important medicinal plant. All parts are widely used in Ayurvedic system of medicines since ancient times. The present study was designed to investigate the content of phenols and flavonoids of various extracts of aerial parts of T. stans. All extracts revealed presence of phenol and flavonoid. The content of phenols and flavonoids of the investigated extracts differed as per the polarity of the solvents used. The content of total phenolics in the extract was determined spectrometrically according to the Folin-Ciocalteu procedure and calculated as catechol equivalent. The content of total flavonoids in the extract was determined and calculated as quercetin equivalent. Total phenolic compounds in ethanol extract is found to be 60.238 mg/g of extract calculated as Folin Ciocalteau equivalent (r2= 0.991). Total flavonoids in ethanol extract is found to be 6.545 mg/g calculated as quercetin equivalent (r2= 0.997). The greater amount of phenolic and flavonoid compounds are observed in ethanol extract than that of methanol and acetone extract.

Phytochemical investigation of Aglaia lawii leaves showed presence of flavonoids, carbohydrates, phenolics, triterpenoids, tannins etc. An attempt made to perform free radical scavenging potential of A. lawii's different parts. Free radicals are well documented for playing role in our body. Excess production of free radicals leads to oxidative stress in body. It results in pathological manifestations as atherosclerosis, cancer, inflammatory condition, diabetes, alzheimer’s disease Parkinson’s disease etc. A variety of synthetic medicines employed in the treatment of different diseases that are capable to generate free radicals in body which may cause another disease. In Ayurveda, the plant sources are rich of antioxidants. Phyto-constituents are capable to terminate free radical reactions and prevent body from oxidative damage with less side effects and compatible to body physiology. Considering the above facts present work deals with evaluation of free radical scavenging potential of A. lawii plant. The extracts of leaves, bark, stem and seed were screened in- vitro, for their possible radical scavenging antioxidant activity by employing 2, 2-diphenyl-1- picryl-hydrazyl (DPPH) and nitric oxide (NO) reducing power with ascorbic acid as standard. The results revealed that ethanolic extract of leaves, bark, stem and seed can be a potential source of natural antioxidant, which can be applied as new source of Antioxidant Activity Index (AAI) which may complete demand of modern era to use such phytoconstituents or phytomedicines. The data obtained in these testing systems clearly established the antioxidant potency of the plant. © 2014, Journal of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Research. All rights reserved.

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.

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.

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.
