Phytochemical and Antimicrobial Properties of Oil Extracts from the Seeds of Ricinodendron heudelotii

Conclusion: Amongst the bacteria used, highest MIC of 150 mg mL–1 was recorded for Staphylococcus aureus, while lowest MIC of 50 mg mL–1 was observed in E. coli. Highest activity was observed against the fungus, Candida albicans with MIC of 25 mg mL–1.

The present study highlights the extracellular synthesis of AgNPs and its antibacterial properties. The AgNPs were synthesized using Pseudomonas sp. THG-LS1.4 strain which had been isolated from soil. The AgNPs were characterized by field emission-transmission electron microscopy (FE-TEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform-infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy, and particle size dis...

on;ík Stefano Dall’Acqua Jan Hošek Karel Šmejkal Herpes simplex virus (HSV) causes numerous mild-to-serious human diseases, including mucocutaneous herpes infections and life-threatening herpes encephalitis. Moreover, herpes viral lesions can be complicated by inflammation and secondary bacterial infections. The development of resistance to antiviral drugs along with the undesirable side effects of these drugs are relevant argue for the development of new anti-HSV drugs with diverse mechanisms of action. Eucalyptus extracts have been used for decades to combat various infectious disease...

Abstract Thirteen natural products derivatives of hydroxyl amide class, three described for the first time, were synthesized by reaction of three indole acids and 3,4,5-trimethoxybenzoic acid with six different amino alcohols in the presence of triphenylphosphine and N-bromosuccinimide. The derivatives were tested against the Gram (+) bacteria Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus cereus, Gram (-) Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Escherichia coli, besides the yeast Candida albicans. One of the compounds (7) was selectively active against C. albicans (91.3 ± 0.49% inhibition) showing a great potential as a new drug l...

Al-blewi, Praveen K. Sahu, Mohamed R. Aouad The discovery of a novel series of task-specific fluorinated pyridinium ionic liquids (TsILs) tagged with Schiff bases is reported using ultrasound-assisted and conventional syntheses. The synthesis required the quaternization of the appropriate pyridine Schiff base, followed by the metathesis of the resulting task-specific halogenated pyridinium ILs. The structures of the ILs were establi...

Duquesne The aim of this study was to examine the influence of accelerated UV-aging on the activity against chosen microorganisms and the mechanical properties of poly-lactic acid (PLA) films enhanced with ZnO nanoparticles. The pure PLA films and tri-layered PLAZnO1%/PLA/PLAZnO1% films of 150 µm thickness were extruded. The samples were treated with UV-A and Q-SUN irradiation. After irradiation the antimicrobial activity and mechanical properties of the films were analyzed. The results of the study demonstrated that PLA films did not inhibit the growth of Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus cereus, Escherichia coli,...
