Abstract

An integrated analytical approach for the compositional evaluation of different stages of fully ripened Jatropha curcas seed oil.

The present study aims to determine the compositional changes including physicochemical characterization of Jatropha seed oil at three different stages of ripening (green: JO-I; yellow: JO-II; and brown: JO-III). The moisture and oil content of Jatropha seeds was 60.83-10.12% and 34-32 (wt%) for...

Abstract

Differences in antioxidant properties of ginkgo leaves collected from male and female trees.

Total phenolic content and antioxidant capacity (FRAP method) of Ginkgo biloba L. leaves collected from male and female trees were determined and compared. Different water and aqueous ethanolic (water/ethanol 80/20, V/V) extracts were prepared by varying the time of infusing, boiling and steeping...
