Researchers at the Yasuj University of Medical Sciences have found out a technique to synthesize a nanoadsorbent for medical purposes.

Yasuj University of Medical Sciences’ researchers focus on Phenolic compounds which has strong antioxidant combination, IRNA reports.

Several plants produce Phenolic compounds in their tissue and its measurement is very important. Phenolic Timol and Carvacrol are two common Phenolic combinations in local herbs like Thymus daenensis Celak, Satureja khuzestanica, Salvia officinalism, Stachys pilifera Benth.

Arash Asfaram, member of the medical herbs research center of the Yasuj University of Medical Sciences said that using synthesis techniques of nanoadsorbent is a low-cost and simple way in order to discover the constituent elements of plants.

Fruits, vegetables and beverages are the major sources of phenolic compounds in the human diet. The food and agricultural products processing industries generate substantial quantities of phenolics-rich by-products, which could be valuable natural sources of antioxidants.

The applications of nanotechnology for treatment, diagnosis, monitoring, and control of biological systems have recently been referred to as nanomedicine.
