Plant Pharmacognosy

Pharmacognosy is the study of drugs from the natural origin. The word pharmacognosy is a Greek word: "pharmakon" meaning drug or medicine, and "gnosis" meaning knowledge. The American Society of Pharmacognosy defines pharmacognosy as "the study of the physical, chemical, biochemical and biological properties of drugs, drug substances or potential drugs or drug substances of natural origin as well as the search for new drugs from natural sources".

Plant preparations are said to be medicinal or herbal when they are used to promote health beyond basic nutrition. The study of drugs from plants includes the subjects of botany, chemistry and pharmacology.

Phytochemistry Research

Phytochemistry deals with the chemicals that are derived from the plants. The biochemical obtained from plants is identified, purified, biosynthesized and are used as biologically active compounds in Indian traditional medicine, Chinese medicine.

Phytochemical Analysis

Phytochemicals are square measure of chemical compounds that occur naturally in plants. Some Phytochemicals liable for color and organoleptic properties of plants, like the deep purple of blueberries and also the smell of garlic. Phytochemicals might have biological significance, for instance carotenoids or flavonoids, however aren't established as essential nutrients. Some of examples are Antioxidants, phytoneutrients, flavones, flavonoids, carotenoids, polyphenols, flavonoids, isoflovones, allyl sulfides, isothiocyanates.

Plant Alkaloids

Alkaloids are naturally occurring chemical compounds contain basic nitrogen atom. Alkaloids are produced from plants, animals and also from bacteria, fungi. Alkaloids are extracted by acid base extraction process. Alkaloids have a good vary of pharmacological activities include antimalarial, antiasthma, anticancer, cholinomimetic, antiarrhythmic, antibacterial, ant hyperglycemic.

Volatile Oils

A volatile oil is a hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aroma compounds derived from plants. Volatile oils are also known as essential oils or simply as the "oil of" the plant. Essential oil is a liquid that is generally distilled (most frequently by steam or water) from the plant parts. Volatile oils are the combinations of oxygenated compounds and hydrocarbons.

Tannin is an astringent, bitter plant polyphenolic compound that binds to and precipitates proteins and various other organic compounds including amino acids and alkaloids. The tannin compounds are widely distributed in many species of plants, where they play a role in protection from predation, and perhaps also as pesticides, and in plant growth regulation.

Photosynthesis Plants

Photosynthesis is a process which converts the light energy mainly obtained from sun to chemical organic compounds by plants and some other organisms. In atmosphere release of molecular oxygen and the removal of carbon dioxide is done by photosynthetic process.

An antioxidant is just a particle that keeps another atom from oxidizing. Since there are numerous procedures in the body which bring about oxidation, the admission of antioxidant is crucial to neutralize a percentage of the negative aftereffects of the development of an excess of oxidized atoms in the body. Free radicals are insecure atoms that are brutally scanning for their missing electrons and bringing on untold devastation along their way.

Photoresist Technology

A photoresist is a light-delicate material utilized as a part of a few modern procedures, for example, photolithography and photoengraving, to shape a designed coating on a surface.

Ayurvedic Medication

Ayurvedic Medication developed in India, and is thought to be the world's oldest comprehensive health care system. It is named for the Sanskrit word Ayurveda, significance the "wisdom of life." Ayurvedic prescription (otherwise called Ayurveda) is India's primary medicine. More than 90 percent of the landmass' populace utilizes some type of Ayurvedic treatment, including tailing its dietary standards, traditional medication or looking for expert assistance from Ayurvedic professionals.

Crude Drug

A crude drug is a raw substance obtained naturally from living organisms in organic or inorganic sources intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, treatment, or prevention of disease in human beings or animals.

Thermal Decomposition

Thermal Decomposition is an endothermic process, which is the decomposition of chemical compounds by using thermal energy. That means one compound decomposes in to two or more compounds when heated.


Emission of light from the living organism is known as bioluminescence. It is one of the most exiting nature’s phenomenon. In different organisms Luciferase enzyme catalyzes the light-emitting reactions. Generally seen in marine vertebrates, fungi, bacteria, algae.
