Boswellia serrata plant was collected from Pachmarhi district Hoshangabad Madhya Pradesh. The methanolic extracts of leaves and flowers of Boswellia serrata have exhibited significant broad spectrum antimicrobial activity. Further work is being carried out to isolate and identify the active constituents of the plant responsible for antimicrobial activity. The purpose of our research was methanolic extract of the plant was qualitatively investigated for phytochemicals using standard procedures which revealed the presence of various important bioactive chemical entities.
The antifungal activity of medicinal plant Boswellia Serrata was tested against plant pathogenic fungus (red rot disease causing agent) Colletotrichum falcatum by agar well –diffusion method. The plant leaves was extracted with various solvents like chloroform, ethanol and aqueous. The aim of the study was to evaluate the antifungal activity of extracts of plant species used in traditional herbal medicine. The results obtained in the present study suggest that they can be used in treating diseases caused by the test organism.
Mn(II), Co(II), Cu(II) complexes containing a tetradentate macrocyclic nitrogen ligand i.e. 2,7,9,14- Tetraphenyl-1,3,6,810,13-hexaazacyclooctadecane (L) have been synthesized. The complexes have been characterized by the elemental analysis, molar conductance measurement, magnetic susceptibility measurements, IR, electronic and EPR spectral studies. The molar conductance of the complexes in DMSO correspond to nonelectrolytic nature for Mn(II), Co(II), Cu(II). Thus, these complexes may be formulated [M(L)X2] (where M = Mn(II), Co(II), Cu(II) and X=Cl-, NO3 -, OAc-, NCS-). On the basic of IR, electronic and EPR spectral studies an octahedral geometry has been assigned for Mn(II) and Co(II) complexes and distorted octahedral geometry for Cu(II) complexes. In vitro the complexes were against two pathogenic fungi (i.e. Alternaria alternata and Aspergillus niger) to access growth inhibitor potential.
Chemical graph theory is a branch of Mathematical chemistry which has an important effect on the development of the chemical sciences. The study of topological indices is currently one of the most active research fields in chemical graph theory. In this paper, we compute the connectivity Banhatti indices of certain families of Benzenoid systems.
