Effect of Phosphorus fertilizer on growth and yield of cowpea

                         i.            Abstract Four types of soil are found in Liberia. Latosols of low to medium fertility occur in rolling hill and cover about three-fourths of the total land surface. Shallow, coarse lithosols, in the hilly and rugged terrain, cover about one-eighth of the land. Infertile regosols, or sandy soils, are found along the coastal plain...

Abstract: Aim: isolation, purification and NMR characterization of secondary metabolites in Mimosa pudica.Study design: extraction, isolation and identification of the secondary metabolties from the petroleum ether and metabolites extracts from Mimosa pudica.Methodology: In the course of our study on Mimosa pudica, a compound was isolated and purified using different chromatographic techniques and the structure of the compound determined on the basis of their spectroscopic data (IR, HNMR, ...

Quantitative Determination of Secondary Metabolites and Antimicrobial Activity of Mimosa Pudica

Abstract: The side effects and the increasing microbial resistance to synthetic drugs in the management and treatment of infections remain an issue in modern medicine, hence the increasing research in phytomedicine. Therefore in the present study, the active phytocomponents of Mimosa pudica’s wholesome parts were revealed using quantitative phytochemical analysis. The antibacterial activity of the Ethanolic extract was studied using Well diffusion method. The activity was tested against...

DETERMINATION OF Escherichia coli AND SOME PHYSICOCHEMICAL PARAMETERS OF SELECTED PIPE BORNE AND SACHETBOTTLED WATER IN ACCRA-

Water treatment describes those processes used to make water more acceptable for a desired enduse. These can include use as drinking water, industrial processes, medical and many other uses. In Ghana, water is the most common and cheapest drink one can afford. For this reason, drinking water is supposed to be clean and safe enough for human consumption.
