The present study is aimed to evaluating the hepatoprotective effect of Bridelia retusa leaves extracts by paracetamol-induced liver damage in swiss albino mice.The degree of protection was measured by using biochemical parameters such as serum glutamate oxalate transaminase (SGOT), serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase (SGPT), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), bilirubin.. Treatment with Bridelia retusa leaves extracts showed significant reduction in level of SGOT, SGPT, ALP and total bilirubin almost comparable to the Silymarin. The hepatoprotection confirmed by histopathological examination of the liver tissue. From the result it can be concluded that Bridelia retusa leaves possesses hepatoprotective effect against paracetamol –induced liver damage in mice.

Title: Synthesis, characterization and antimicrobial activity of metal complexes derived from nitro aniline and 3-aldehydosalicylic acid

 Objective: The aim of the present work was to synthesize different types of complex compounds of three Schiff base ligands with metal ions. Methods: New Schiff base ligands formed by the condensation of 3-Aldehydosalicylic acid with equimolar quantity of para, meta and ortho nitro aniline. The complexes of metal ions like Cu (II), Zn (II), Ni (II), Co (II)  with Schiff base ligands (ML2) have been synthesized at pH range7 . All the synthesized Schiff bases and metal complexes were characterized by elemental analysis, FTIR, 1HNMR and mass spectral data. Results: Study reveals that the Schiff base ligands involved the donor COOH, OH and Nitrogen atom. The ligands ML2 in metal complexes behave as dibasic tridentate OON at pH range7. Spectral analysis indicates square pyramidal geometries for all the complexes.  The Schiff bases and metal complexes were screened for their antifungal and antibacterial activities. Conclusion: The Cu (II) and Zn (II) complexes exhibited good antimicrobial activity when compared to the free ligand.
