Preparation of herbaria specimens and medicinal plants by microwaving

Annales Pharmaceutiques Francaises 42(4): 313-316
Preparation of herbaria specimens and medicinal plants by microwaving
The use of microwave oven can obtain improved herbaria specimens, as regards the natural aspect, the original color of the flowers and leaves and also the stability of fruits. Experiments conducted on medicinal plants and condiments confirm these results. This simple, speedy and relatively cheap process presents advantages for microbial decontamination, desinsectization and, particularly, stabilization of drugs.
