By Braja Gopal Bag, Abir Chandan Barai, Sk Nurul Hasan, Subhajit Das, Chhabi Garai, Subrata Ghorai, Saikat Kumar Panja

Pages : 61-68

Terpenoids are a large and structurally group of natural products containing multiple five carbon containing isoprene units. In the current studies, detailed computations have been carried out with 120 naturally occurring mono- (C10), sesqui- (C15), di- (C20), sester- (C25), sesqua- (C35) and tetra- (C40) terpenoids using Gaussian 09 software with with Gauss view 07 and molecular mechanics calculation using Serena software.

2.Ficus carica Linn (Dumur) Fruit Extract Mediated Green Synthesis of Gold Nanoparticles and its Application in Catalytic Reduction

By Shib Shankar Dash, Braja Gopal Bag, Abhisek Midya

Pages : 69-73

The fruit extract of Ficus carica Linn (Dumur) is rich in different types of plant secondary metabolites such as terpenoids, polyphenols including flavanoids, etc. We have demonstrated the use of the fruit extract for the synthesis of gold nanoparticles in water at room temperature under very mild conditions.

3.Synthesis of 6-hydroxy-N-(6-methylpyridin-2-yl) naphthalene-2-carboxamide and its alkoxy analogues

Pages : 74-79

6-hydroxy-N-(6-methylpyridin-2-yl)naphthalene-2-carboxamide and its alkoxy analogues bearing long alkyl chains have been synthesized using 6-hydroxy-2-naphthoic acid and 2-amino-6-picoline. The facile synthetic scheme reported here using conventional laboratory reagents opens up a new strategy for the generation of libraries of such compounds in high yields.
