Rumex crispus L. and Rumex obtusifolius L. (Poligonaceae) are perennial wild plants. For centuries these plants have been considered weeds in conventional agriculture. They have also been recognized as a serious problem in organic agriculture, as they are difficult to control without the use of chemical agents. However, Rumex crispus L. and Rume...
Article
Perennial plant Mentha pulegium L. (pennyroyal, Lamiaceae) can be found in Europe and Mediterranean. In areas where it thrives M. pulegium is used in nutrition and as medicinal plant. Essential oil of M. pulegium is also a frequent constituent of foods and fragrances, because of mint‐like odor. Regarding the use of M. pulegium in traditional medici...

Introduction Clinopodium vulgare L. (Lamiaceae) is widely distributed in Europe, Northwest Asia, North Africa and America. In ethnopharmacology of Bosnia and Herzegovina, C. vulgare is used in the treatment of gastrointestinal disorders [1]. Bioactive components of extracts have an important role in the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases...
Poster
Clinopodium vulgare L. (Lamiaceae) is medicinal plant characteristic for traditional medicine of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). In BiH Clinopodium vulgare L. is used in the treatment of digestive disorders [1], while in traditional medicine of other countries (Turkey and Bulgaria) this plant is used for treatment of diabetes, cancer and viral skin d...

The aim of this work was to perform phytochemical analysis as well as antioxidant and anticholinesterase potential of hot water and methanolic extracts from Mentha pulegium L., Lamiaceae, wild growing in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is plant that is traditionally used in Bosnia and Herzegovina medicine to treat gastrointestinal and neurological disor...
Article
Centaurea species are used in eastern Mediterranean ethnopharmacology due to variety of bioactive compounds they comprise. Aim of this work was to characterize the Centaurea rupestris L. hydrodistilled essential oil chemical composition and test its biological activity: antimicrobial effect, antioxidant potential and inhibition of cholinesterases....
Article
The phytochemical composition and the antioxidant activities of the essential oil as well as methanol and hot water extracts of endemic Satureja subspicata Vis. growing in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) were described. ß-caryophyllene, cis-ß-ocimene and α-pinene, identified by GC-MS and GC-FID, were dominant oil components. The major compound of both...

Reaction between RuCl 3 and salicyladehyde was performed in the presence of triethylamine in acetone solution. On the basis of analytical data, IR, UV-Vis spectroscopy and cyclic voltammetry, an empirical formula for the acetone solvate [Ru-Cl 2Sal] × 0.6 × Et 3NHCl Me 2CO can be attributed to the product. The carbonyl and phenol groups from salicy...

Aqueous solubility is an important factor influencing several aspects of the pharmacokinetic profile of a drug. Numerous publications present different methodologies for the development of reliable computational models for the prediction of solubility from structure. The quality of such models can be significantly affected by the accuracy of the em...
