My gen chem professor has been sent several plants from Zambia, Africa by an MD friend of his who wanted students to look into the plants' medicinal properties, specifically treating infertility. Unfortunately the plants have already been processed for research (some are in powder form). Also we don't know the names of the plants. Identifying the plants will be a task of its own that I think we can handle. However I am having trouble finding literature on the active molecules in infertility herbs, or anything discussing the science behind how these herbs work. It seems to be a remedy sworn by african women for decades. Does anyone know anything about the topic?

I have 2 semesters to complete this research. Should I go for something else?
