Antimicrobial Studies of the Transition Metal Complexes of the African Black Soap from Elaeis guineensis (Palm Kernel Oil) and Theobroma cacao (Cocoa)

An indigenous organic soap produced by saponification is African black soap. The laboratory-controlled preparation was carried out using reactive palm kernel oil and cocoa pod ash filtrate. After its reaction with certain transition metal salts, which were Cu(CH3COO)2.H2O, Pb(CH3COO)2.3H2O and FeCl3, the elucidation of its capacity to act as a ligand was carried out. 3:1…
