Oleanic acid: its isolation and derivatisation to potential antimicrobial compounds
(Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2007)
An increasing number of natural products possessing the oleanolic acid moiety have been shown to demonstrate a wide spectrum of biological activity. This thesis deals with the extraction and isolation of oleanolic acid ...
Bactericidal efficacy of wound gauze treated with chitosan nanomaterial hybrids of zinc, silver and copper on common wound bacteria
(Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2018)
Maintenance of optimum wound chemistry is important to ensure timely healing of a wound. Bacterial infections impair the process of wound healing by producing toxins that alter the chemical environment in and around the ...
Synthesis and antimicrobial screening of some quinonoid systems
(Cape Technikon, 1996)
A new general synthetic strategy for the synthesis of benzo[c]pyranquinones, with a view to making the route more generally applicable to the synthesis of naturally occurring naphtho[2,3-c]pyranquinones of potential ...
Synthesis of some potential antimicrobial carbocyclic compounds
(Cape Technikon, 1994)
Some naturally occurring compounds containing the naphtho [2,3 - c] pyran ring system have been found to be useful antibiotic agents and thus the laboratory synthesis ofthese compounds and their derivatives are of ...
