Title: EVALUATION OF BIOLOGICAL ACTIVITIES OF SELECTED MEDICINAL PLANTS: ISOLATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF ANTIMICRIBIAL COMPOUNDS FROM POMARIA SANDERSONII AND ALEPEDIA AMATYMBICA

Biography

Dr FM Mtunzi’s research has focussed for more than a decade on extraction and isolation of active compounds from medicinal plants used mostly in South Africa. So far he has published more than 40 papers in peer review journals. Currently I am a senior lecturer at VUT and my research focus has broadened to modification of the isolated compounds by replacing some substituents in the phenolic compounds with new ones to amplify their activities against known pathogens.
