Objectives of the Course
The aim of this lecture is teaching the students the main consepts of medicinal plants, establishing the correlation between the drog, plant material and crude dug materials, having analytical opinions about the subjects of medicinal plants, developing experimental sense and solving the problems concerning with medicinal plants, history of medicinal plants, phytoterapy, uses of medicinal plants, methods for examining of medicinal plants quality identification of drogs and growing up medicinal plants, gathering of drogs, classification of medicinal plants by their efficient substances, starch contain drogs, sugar and agar contain drogs, silisium and calcium carbonate contain drogs, alkaloid [heterocyclic (pyridin and piperydine alkaloids, tropan derivatives of alkaloids, quinolein derivatives of alkaloids, isoquinoleine derivatives of alkaloids, indol alkaloids, purin and steroidal alkaloids) and non heterocyclic], glycosides (flavonoid, cyanogenetic glycosides, sulfur glycosides, antrasen glycosides), extraction of tannin and essential oils, molecular structure of resin and rubber, consepting of the latin names of the plants contain these medicinal plants and provide to make connections between these subjects.
