ELEMENTAL ANALYSIS ON PTEROCARPUS MILDBREADII (OHA) SEED

ABSTRACTElemental analysis is the qualitative detection and quantitative determination of chemical elements(atoms,ions)in a sample(Fritz Pregl 1923). To detect element, one should fix an appearance of an analytical signal. The formation of precipitate or characteristic crystals, colour change, an isolation of gaseous products, an appearance of a definite lines in spectrum, luminescence, etc. To determine elements quantity, it is necessary to measure a value of an analytical signal; a precipit...

EFFECTS OF CONVERGENT AND DIVERGENT THINKING-BASED INSTRUCTIONAL STRATEGIES ON STUDENTS’ ACHIEVEMENT IN SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL MATHEMATICS

AbstractThis paper determined the effect of the convergent and divergent thinking-based instructional strategies in influencing students’ achievement in mathematics.  The influence of gender on the achievement of students in mathematics was also ascertained.  Two hypotheses were formulated to guide the study.  a quasi-experimental pre-test, post-test, non-equivalent control group design involving two experimental groups and one control group was adopted for the study.  t...

PHYTOCHEMICAL ANALYSIS AND THE ANTI- INFLAMMATORY ACTIVITIES OF DICHLOROMETHANE FRACTION OF METHHANOL EXTRACT OF CRATEVA ADANSONII

ABSTRACTInflammation is a complex biological response of vascular tissue to harmful stimuli such as pathogen, damage cells or irritants (Ryan & Majno, 1983). The urgency generated by increased rate of stroke, atherosclerosis attribute due to prolonged use of cyclooxygenase-1 and Cyclooxygenase- 2 inhibitors have accelerated anti-inflammatory drug research over the last decade while synthetic pharmaceutical agents continued to dominate research (Ryan & Majno, 1983). Attention increasin...
