Seven phenolic compounds were isolated from a MeOH extract of the leaves of Grevillea robusta. Their structures were determined by various spectral methods including 2D NMR spectroscopy.
In view of the worldwide shortage of petroleum and the fact that a large amount of residual oil will remain in the reservoir after the primary recovery and water flooding stages, the use of Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) methods to recover as much as possible of this residual oil has become increasingly important worldwide. The predominant and most promising… (More)
A new long chain fatty alcohol acetate identified as 17-hydroxypentacosanyl acetate, (1) together with a new xanthone identified as 1,8-Dihydroxy-3,6-dimethoxy-xanthone-5-O-[α-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1''→2')]-β-D-glucopyranoside (3), as well as two new lignans identified as (+)-Lyoniresinol-3a-O-[α-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1'''→6'')]-β-D-glucopyranoside (4) and… (More)
Oil produced in most oil fields is accompanied by water in the form of an emulsion that must be treated. In addition, this water normally contains dissolved salts, principally chlorides of sodium, calcium, and magnesium. If crude oil is left untreated, when it is processed in a refinery the salt can cause various operating problems. This paper investigates… (More)
