Characterization of BF leaf powder by X-Ray diffraction
The Palmyra palm (Borassus flabellifer,), a multipurpose tree of great utility It is cultivated in many tropical areas for its leaf, fruit, sap and many other items. The fibre obtained from the base of the petioles, or the sheathing leafstalks, is stiff, harsh and wiry. X-ray diffraction has been a well-established technique in the field of structural investigations for decades, applied not only by physicists. It represents an important tool for Physicists, chemists and biologists, too, and played a decisive role in the discovery of the structure material. Crystallography can reliably provide the answer to many structures related questions, from global folds to atomic details of bonding. The Borassus flabellifer leaves could be considered as good sources of natural antioxidants and antimicrobials and may find several applications in agro-food and pharmaceutical industries. The present work will help tribal of Madhya Pradesh for upgrading their Social and economic condition.
