Pharmacognosy and Phytochemistry 2 Notes PDF Free

In this post, I have shared an overview and download links of notes of Pharmacognosy and Phytochemistry 2 (BP504T) according to the PCI syllabus for B Pharm 5th Semester 2023.


In the notes of Pharmacognosy and Phytochemistry 2, we have given two types of notes namely Handwritten notes and Standard notes.

The primary objective for Pharmacognosy and Phytochemistry 2 notes is to equip students with an understanding of how secondary metabolites are produced in the form of the drug and the methods to detect and separate them to make these industrially. Additionally, the course focuses on the process of making phytochemicals and plants through the cultivation of tissues and drug interactions as well as the fundamental principles of traditional medicine.

Friends In Pharmacognosy and Phytochemistry 2 as per the syllabus copy of PCI B Pharm 5th semester, there are a total of 5 units in this subject.
