Acetylcholinesterase inhibitory activity of some Amaryllidaceae alkaloids and Narcissus extracts.
All the extracts with the highest acetylcholinesterase inhibitory activity contained galanthamine except that of N. assoanus, a lycorine type alkaloid-bearing species. Expand
Comparison between the radical scavenging activity and antioxidant activity of six distilled and nondistilled mediterranean herbs and aromatic plants.
Ethyl acetate and dichloromethane extracts of both distilled and nondistilled plants exhibited activities comparable to those of commercial extracts/compounds, thus making it possible to consider some of them as a potential source of antioxidants of natural origin. Expand
An industrial approach in the search of natural antioxidants from vegetable and fruit wastes
Abstract Eleven fruit and vegetable byproducts and two minor crops were screened for industrial polyphenol exploitation potential by determination of their extraction yield, total phenolic contentExpand
Separation and characterization of phenolic compounds in fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) using liquid chromatography-negative electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry.
Liquid chromatography (LC) diode array detection (DAD) coupled to negative electrospray ionization (ESI) tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) was used for the rapid and sensitive identification ofExpand
Qualitative analysis of phenolic compounds in apple pomace using liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry in tandem mode.
The occurrence of phenolic compounds in apple residues resulting from the juice industry was investigated to provide an alternative use for this raw material and 60 compounds, including cinnamic and benzoic acid derivatives and flavonoids were identified, some of them not previously reported in apple waste.

Identification of phenolic compounds in artichoke waste by high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry.
A new fast and efficient method combining liquid chromatography coupled to ionspray mass spectrometry in tandem mode with negative ion detection is described for the qualitative analysis of artichokeExpand
Characterization of acylated flavonoid-O-glycosides and methoxylated flavonoids from Tagetes maxima by liquid chromatography coupled to electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry.
This combined approach allowed the identification of 51 phenolic compounds, including flavonoid-O-glycosides acylated with galloyl, protocatechuoyl or caffeoyl groups, methoxylated flavonoids, and hydroxycinnamic acid and phenolic acid derivatives, none of them previously reported in Tagetes maxima.

A single extraction step in the quantitative analysis of arbutin in bearberry (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi) leaves by high-performance liquid chromatography.
Autumn is shown to be a better period than spring for the collection of plant material in order to obtain the highest yield of arbutin. Expand
Antiproliferative Alkaloids from Crinum zeylanicum
Crinum zeylanicum is used in folk medicine as a rubefacient in rheumatism, a treatment for malaria or as a poison. Complex alkaloid profiles in C. zeylanicum plant organs were revealed by GC‐MSExpand
Antioxidant activity and phenolic composition of Lavandin (Lavandula x intermedia Emeric ex Loiseleur) waste.
The phenolic content of lavandin waste obtained after the distillation of essential oils for the perfume industry was investigated to find an alternative use for this material, and structure-activity relationships were proposed by relating the type of scavenging activity of different fractions with the identified phenolic compounds.
