Herbal medicines are still widely practiced in Kurdistan Region-Iraq, especially by people living in villages on mountainous regions. Among plants belonging to the genus Teucrium (family Lamiaceae), which are commonly employed in the Kurdish traditional medicine, we have analyzed, for the first time, the methanol and aqueous methanol extracts of T....

Microwave-assisted extraction (MAE) was chosen to isolate secondary natural compounds from Nonea pulmonarioides. MAE is an efficient approach compared to maceration. In our study of N. pulmonarioides, the Folin–Ciocalteu and trichloroaluminum techniques were used to determine the total phenolic and flavonoid contents. Antioxidant activity was deter...

Herbal medicine is still widely practiced in the Kurdistan Region, Iraq, especially by people living in villages in mountainous regions. Seven taxa belonging to the genus Teucrium (family Lamiaceae) are commonly employed in the Kurdish traditional medicine, especially to treat jaundice, stomachache and abdominal problems. We report, in this paper,...

In this work, coated Fe3O4 nanoparticles were prepared using Iris barnumiae extract. The coated Fe3O4 nanoparticles were characterised using FESEM, FT-IR, and BET techniques. The coated Fe3O4 nanoparticles were applied as an adsorbent for the removal of Congo red in an aqueous solution at 25 °C while varying time, pH level, and dosage of adsorbent....

The Papaver L. plant have been well known as a source of pharmaceutically valuable alkaloids (noscapine, thebaine, codeine, roemerine, papaverine and morphine). The current study investigates the phytochemical, in-vitro antioxidant, and anticancer activities of papaver decaisnei , an endemic plant species to the flora of Kurdistan-Iraq. The chemica...

Herein, a mild and efficient method for synthesis of highly stable palladium nanoparticles (PdNPs) on Aristolochia Olivieri (AO) extract as a support and reducing agent is described. Investigation of catalytically activity of obtained catalyst (AO@PdNPs) was performed for the reduction of nitroaromatic compounds. Of note are the functional group to...

Some elements have been determined in the flowers, leaves and roots of Pterocephalus nestorianus Nab. (Dipsacaceae family) which collected on Safeen Mountain from Kurdistan Region of Iraq. The 65 elemental analyses are carried out using ICP-OES and ICP-MS techniques. Among the macro elements calcium represents the highest, followed by potassium, ma...
