1.  STUDIES ON MRTASANJIVANI SURA 
Ancient Science of Life  1989;8(3-4):220-222.
Mrtasanjivani sura was prepared according to the formulary in an earthen pot and in a glass vessel. The drug fermented in glass vessel was distilled using glass joint distillation apparatus and that fermented in earthen pot was distilled by baka yantra method. The alcohol content in the finished medicine in the glass distilled and baka yantra methods were 3.44% and 4.70% respectively. The medicine of each container was acidic in nature.

2.  PREPARATION OF “777 OIL” USED FOR PSORIASIS IN SIDDHA MEDICINE BY MODIFIED METHOD 
Ancient Science of Life  1988;8(1):17-19.
“777 oil” a coded drug of Siddha system of medicine was prepared and analyzed in the paper. The drug showed 3.62, 13.57 and 266.9 Iodine value, acid number and saponification number respectively. The bark which was one of the ingredients in the drug was possessing 0.63% nitrogen in the acid soluble portion. The bark also exhibited proeolytic activity and the optimum pH was 4.

3.  COMPARATIVE AND FERMENTATION STANARDISATIOND STUDIES ON DASAMULARISHTA 
Ancient Science of Life  1988;8(1):68-70.
Asavas and arishtas are produced by fermentation in an earthen pot according to textual procedure. The size and shape of the pot and the quantity of the drug. That can be taken in a pot for fermentation is not mentioned in the literature. The present Study was taken up to determine the quantity of drug that can be fermented in an earthen Pot to obtain best results.
Dasamularishta was fermented in different volumes in earthen pots of identical size, shape and capacity, as well as in stainless steel vessel and porcelain jar.
The drug filled up to 3/4th of the volume of the earthen pot had shown better results than the earthen pots containing various volumes of drug. The stainless steel container and porcelain jar also showed comparable results to the earthen pot fermented drug. Thin layer chromatography of different preparation showed five spots.

5.  EXPERIMENTAL STUDIES ON THE FERMENTATION OF ARAVINDASAVA 
Ancient Science of Life  1986;5(4):243-246.
Aravindasava was prepared as per the textual and modified methods. The modified methods involved the use of glass vessel and inoculation of the autoclaved drug with the yeasts isolated from Dasamularista and Pippaliasava.
The quantity of alcohol produced in the glass vessel was more than that in the earthen pot by classical method. Among the inoculated organisms, Dasamularista yeast II showed highest alcohol production. There was difference in the degree of utilization of reducing and non – reducing sugars by the growing microorganisms in the fermenting vessel in different method of preparation.

6.  EXPERIMENTAL STUDIES ON THE FERMENTATION IN ASAVAS AND ARISTAS PART II - DRAKSHASAVA 
Ancient Science of Life  1983;2(4):216-219.
A saccharomyces sp. causing fermentation in Meduca asava was isolated from Maduca flowers (Maduca longifolia Macbride). The capability of the organism to cause fermentation in Drakshasava was carried out. The Saccharomyces sp. caused alcoholic fermentation and the alcoholic fermentation and the alcohol produced was almost equal in quantity to that prepared according to textual method. The change in the pH of fermenting medium did not help in increased production of alcohol.

7.  EXPERIMENTAL STUDIES ON THE FERMENTATION IN ASAVAS AND ARISTAS PART - 1 DRAKSARISTA 
Ancient Science of Life  1983;2(3):148-152.
Draksarista was prepared on experimental scale and the progress of fermentation was studied with reference to the conversion of sugars into alcohol and the attended variations in physico–chemical constants in the medium. It has been observed that a species of Saccharomyces isolated from Madhuka flowers was capable of causing fermentation in the Draksarista medium. However, its performance was less as compared to that of a Bacillus species isolated from Jaggery. These studies indicate that solid content, specific gravity, alcohol content and the like are lax parameters and that chromatographic methods are alone dependable to prescribe standards.
