Why do you think your paper is highly
This article is relatively highly cited because quite a large number of
researchers are interested in the properties of hydrazones and their
derivatives which includes antimicrobial, anticonvulsant, analgesic,
anti-inflammatory, anti-platelet, anti-tubercular, anticancer, and
anti-tumor activities. These materials are candidates for new drug
Does it describe a new discovery, methodology, or
synthesis of knowledge? Would you summarize the significance of your
paper in layman's terms?
This article reported a new hydrazone structure determined by single
crystal structure determination and represents an international
collaborative research effort of scientists from the Universiti Sains
Malaysia in Penang, Malaysia, the Prince of Songkla University in Songkla,
Thailand, and Mangalore University in Karnataka, India.
