    Abstract: The integration of essential oils (EOs) into polymers to endow antimicrobial properties has received a lot of attention. EOs are remarkable in that they have broad antimicrobial activity from a natural source while also being volatile. Their volatility, on the other hand, makes high-temperature processing techniques difficult to incorporate into po... Show More

    Abstract: Chalcones are the primary building blocks for flavonoids and isoflavonoids production. Chalcones are a three-carbon, -unsaturated carbonyl system. Chalcones form when an aromatic aldehyde reacts with acetophenones in the presence of a catalyst. For the synthesis of these molecules, a variety of methods and approaches have been reported. The Aldol c... Show More
