Seeds contain 36-38% fixed oils
, proteins, alkaloids, saponin and 0.4-2.5% essential oil (Ali and Blunden, 2003).
(2009) the most used process in laboratory, the Soxhlet extraction with apolar solvent, is still advantageous in the extraction of fixed oils
, since the sample is always in contact with the solvent by continuous renewal.
Phytochemical screening: The primary metabolites like proteins, carbohydrates and fixed oils
,fats, etc and the secondary metabolites like, alkaloids, flavonoids, saponins, phenolics, tannins volatile oils, terpenoids, glycosides etc were assessed in the leaf and stem extracts of Sida cordata.
Medicinal plants are commonly used as health care products in traditional medicine, raw material for the pharmaceutical industry for extraction of essential oils, fixed oils
, tannins, gums and resins, and pharmacologically active constituents like alkaloids, glycosides, flavonoids, culinary additions spices and as natural cosmetics and in perfumes.
Here he presents approximately 300 fixed oils
, 200 essential oils, and 600 botanical extracts for formulators and marketers of new products.
The effects of oral and intraperitoneal single doses of Nigella sativa seed fixed oils
on mortality and [LD.sub.50] values in lops of a mice are summarized in Table 1.
Non-volatile or fixed oils
are much less aromatic and become resinous when exposed to air, similar to cooking oils.
It is light, highly absorbent, nongreasy, sweet tasting and less prone to oxidation than other fixed oils
Hemp oil, like all other natural fixed oils
, is largely composed of mixed fatty glycerides or mixed esters of fatty acids and glycerol, and it is the nature of these component acids which determine the general properties of the oil.
Phytochemical studies: Initially, phytochemical constituents (carbohydrates, proteins, alkaloids, flavonoids, phenols, glycosides, terpenoids, saponins, tannins, steroids, terpenes, phytosterols, quinines and fixed oils
) present in both extracts were found qualitatively (Mushtaq et al., 2013).
Similarly, the reader will discover details on 20 fixed oils
and therapeutic nutrients, including aloe vera gel, moringa oil, turmeric oil and virgin coconut oil.
