Abstract This work exploited the concept of mechanical fractionation of sugarcane stalks prior to processing in an integrated biorefinery. The use of four sugarcane hybrids assured the broad evaluation of sugarcane genotypes. In all cases, the outermost region of the stalk contained denser tissue, which was suitable for burning in cogeneration systems. In contrast, the core cane was processed for sucrose extraction, which generated a less recalcitrant lignocellulose fraction more amenable to pre...

Abstract Hypericum species are one of the most commonly used medicinal plants all over the world and traditional uses of the Hypericum species are mainly characterized by external applications for the treatment of dermatological disorders. The purpose of this study was to investigate the chemical compounds with anti-aging and anti-tyrosinase activities of Hypericum perforatum L., H. calycinum L., and H. confertum Choisy from Turkey and to bring innovation for further studies on developing formul...

Abstract Capsicum chinense Jacq. of family Solanaceae is one of the hottest chilli in the world, which contains higher capsaicin compared to other chilli species available in India. Currently the pungency of C. chinense is decreasing due to selection of robust genotypes for increasing yield, intermixing of local cultivars etc. Moreover till date very little information is available regarding the molecular characterization from North East India, which is considered to be the centre of origin of t...

Abstract Purslane (Portulaca oleracea L.) is a valuable plant and crop with potential industrial uses, yet little is known on how its cultivation could benefit from soilless substrates. This study aimed to assess the effects of different soilless growth media on herbal yields (fresh and dry), proximate chemical composition, total phenolic, flavonoid and anthocyanin content, and antioxidant activity of purslane cultivated in a closed system. The greatest yields over five harvest cycles were obtai...

Abstract In this study, the effect of bio-chars from sugarcane bagasse pyrolysis on the thermal and mechanical properties of cement-based composites was highlighted. The sugarcane bagasse was submitted to a thermochemical conversion process (slow pyrolysis) to obtain bio-chars. Cement-based composites were elaborated using the slurry dewatering method. The results showed that the bio-chars present a rough structure, a lower content of polysaccharides and lignin than the sugarcane bagasse. Moreov...

Abstract Zingiber cassumunar Roxb. is a medically important plant with extensive traditional medicinal functions and bioactivities. It is also used in some skin-care balm by local people. Nevertheless, the research on the active components of the plant related to skin-care is not enough, which mainly involved some antioxidant and anti-inflammatory active compounds. This study investigated the extracts and components from rhizome of Z. cassumunar for their 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) rad...

Abstract Biodegradable compositions of polylactic acid (PLA) and thermoplasticized starch (TPS) were prepared using in situ compatibilization process using a twin screw extruder followed by extrusion blown film process. TPS obtained from maize and cassava starch were blended with PLA to prepare the PLA/TPS blend at variable content ranging from 5 to 30 wt%. In situ compatibilization was accomplished with chemical grafting of glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) in the presence of benzoyl peroxide (BPO) a...

Abstract The harvest time of a plant usually affects the yield of its metabolites. Polygonum tinctorium (Polygonum tinctorium Ait., P. tinctorium) is an important cultivated plant that produces the natural blue dye indigo and the medicinal metabolite indirubin. To explore the mechanism of indigo and indirubin accumulation, the leaves of P. tinctorium at different harvest times, namely July, August, and October, were investigated by metabolite and de novo transcriptome analyses. The results revea...
