1.  ANTIBACTERIAL ACIVITY OF THE ESSENTIAL OIL OF LIPPIE NODIFLORA 
Ancient Science of Life  1996;16(1):79-81.
The plant Lippia nodiflora (Family-Verbenaceae) has medicinal properties and particularly used as an antidandruff agent. The essential oil of the plant was tested for its antibacterial activity against both gram positive and Gram negative bacteria. It showed good activity and compared with standard neomycin sulphate. However, it was inactive in the case of shigella flexneri.

2.  STANDARDISATION OF KARPURASAVA 
Ancient Science of Life  1994;14(1-2):49-52.
Asavas and aristhas are medicines prepared by fermentation. In some medicines alcohol produced by fermentation is distilled and added to the powdered drugs for a fixed period, filtered and the filtrate is used as medicines.
Karpurasava is prepared by distilling the alcohol. The quantity of alcohol in the distillate was 9.87% by the textual method while it was 5.77% by glass distillation apparatus. The alcohol content in Karpurasava was 8.7%.

3.  STUDIES ON THE STANDARDISATION OF CURNAS PART – II TALIZADYA CURNA 
Ancient Science of Life  1991;11(1-2):46-49.
Talisadya churna was prepared by pounding the individual ingredients in mortar and pestle and mixie. The Curna prepared by pounding the ingredients in mortar and pestle showed higher exhaustive extraction in hexane and solubility in alcohol. The Curna prepared by grinding the ingredients in mixie showed less acid insoluble content, high volatile matter, water soluble matter, and exhaustive extraction in chloroform. Thin layer silica gel chromatography and test of organic functional groups did not show any difference in the Tulisadya curna prepared by either method.

4.  STUDIES ON COMMERCIAL SAFFRON 
Ancient Science of Life  1991;10(3):187-190.
Two commercial samples of saffron were analysed for moisture and ash contents, solubility in water, action with sulphuric acid, presence of foreign dyes and colour intensity of water soluble solution.
The moisture content in Laccha was 12.7% while it was 11% in Mogra. The ash was 4.7% in both the samples. The water soluble matter in Laccha was 52.7% and 45.8% in Mogra. There was no foreign dye in these samples. The colour intensity of 0.02% saffron solution of both the samples corresponded to 0.07% of potassium dichromate at 470 mm.

5.  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.

6.  PRESERVATION OF DRUGS 
Ancient Science of Life  1982;2(1):41-46.
In this article the factors likely to cause spoilage of the drugs of the Indian systems of medicine are reviewed. Methods for the prevention of spoilage are discussed. The results of a limited study carried out on the stability of a few selected drug preparations representing the main dosage forms are also presented
