This study involves the investigation of antioxidant phenolic compounds in Aconitum cochleare. There is a continuous mounting pressure, in the scientific world, to discover new and potent antioxidants, to combat the free radicals. Among the antioxidant compounds, the phenolics comprise the largest class, and thus hold an important place in biochemical studies. Phenolics are abundantly present in some plant families as secondary metabolites and Ranunculaceae is one of those families that contain alkaloids and phenolic compounds in many of its species. Aconitum cochleare is one of the Ranunculaceae specie which was yet to be exploited for its phenolic components and its antioxidant capacity and thus in this study, the methanolic extract of the flowering parts of this plant was obtained and subjected to fractionation and each of the fractions were subjected to the methods for antioxidant capacity determination. The DPPH test was used to estimate the antioxidant capacity, while determination of total phenol was done to confirm which fraction has the most phenolic constituents. More over total flavonoid contents were determined to find out which fraction has the most flavonoids. Further investigation about fractions was done by RP-HPLC, which showed the presence of esculin in the ethyl acetate fraction, as well as some other compounds, evident from the RP-HPLC chromatograms. For confirmation of the molecular weight of phenolic compounds, HR-MS was employed and by its result it was concluded that ethyl acetate fraction has the highest content of flavanol and flavonol glycoside.

This study involves the investigation of antioxidant phenolic and flavonoid compounds in Rheum ribes L. There is a continuous mounting pressure, in the scientific world, to discover new and potent antioxidants, to combat the free radicals. Among the antioxidant compounds, the phenolics and flavonoids comprise the largest class, and thus hold an important place in biochemical studies. Rheum ribes belong to the family of Polygonaceae in the genus Rheum, which is consumed as a medicinal plant. Since this plant...
Characterization of thermoluminescence kinetic parameters of beta irradiated B doped Ca-5(PO4)(3)OH powder obtained from eggshell
Depci, T.; Oglakci, M.; Sezer, Selda; YÜCEL, AYTAÇ; DOĞAN, TAMER; Souadi, G.; TOPAKSU, MUSTAFA; Can, N. (2021-07-01)
In this study, we have synthesized B doped Ca5(PO4)3OH (HAP) by a sonication chemical method. The thermoluminescence (TL) properties of the family of synthesized samples (B doped Ca5(PO4)3OH (HAP) were investigated using an IRSL-TL 565 nm filter. This gave the highest TL intensity of each phosphor after 2 Gy beta-irradiation. Three TL glow peaks of B doped Ca5(PO4)3OH (HAP) are centered at around 84, 208 and 324 degrees C (with a heating rate of 2 degrees Cs-1). The trapping parameters such as activation en...
Investigation of lipid-derived formation of decadien-1-amine, 2-pentylpyridine, and acrylamide in potato chips fried in repeatedly used sunflower oil
Karademir, Yesim; GÖKMEN, VURAL; Öztop, Halil Mecit (Elsevier BV, 2019-07-01)
This study aimed to investigate lipid derived formations of decadien-1-amine, 2-pentylpyridine, and acrylamide in potato chips during frying. 2,4-Decadienal, a lipid derived carbonyl, was monitored in repeatedly used sunflower oil at different thermoxidation levels (0, 6, 12, 18, 24 h at 180 degrees C), and in potato chips prepared in. Formations of decadien-1-amine and 2-pentylpyridine were shown for the first time in potato chips. Frying oil had the highest concentration of 2,4-decadienal after thermal ox...
Investigation of neutron sensitivity of un-doped and Dy-doped CaB4O7 for thermoluminescence applications
Iflazoglu, Sera; Yılmaz, Ayşen; KAFADAR, VURAL EMİR; YAZICI, AHMET NECMEDDİN (2018-09-01)
In this study, thermoluminescence characteristics of un-doped and Dy-doped calcium tetraborate (CaB4O7) compounds are reported. The polycrystalline powder samples of un-doped and Dy-doped CaB4O7 were prepared by a solid-state reaction at high-temperature method. The identification and characteristics of the obtained compounds were determined by X-ray diffraction, Fourier transform infrared analysis, differential thermal analysis, thermogravimetric analysis, and scanning electron microscopy. The glow curves ...
Effect of extrusion on the functional properties of carrot pulp added extrudates and in-vitro bioaccessibility of lutein and beta-carotene
Ortak, Melda; Şensoy, İlkay; Ögel, Zümrüt Begüm; Department of Food Engineering (2014)
In this study, effects of extrusion on the functional properties of carrot pulp added extrudates was investigated. Extrusion was performed at four different conditions. Two different temperature profile and two different screw speeds were investigated. Change in antioxidant activity, phenolic content, β-carotene and lutein content and their in-vitro bioaccessibilities after extrusion were investigated. Antioxidant activity and total phenolic content was determined by DPPH and Folin–Ciocalteu method, respect...
