Octadecyl p-coumarates undergo E-Z isomerization in daylight. Although (1) H NMR, (13) C NMR and (1) H-(1) H COSY gave indications about this isomerization, the overlapping of some signals in the (1) H NMR of aromatic region prevented the delineation of signals of the individual isomers. However, heteronuclear spin quantum coupling correlation (HSQC) with(More)
The antifungal activity of the absolute of tuberose (Polianthes tuberosa ) and some of its constituents were evaluated against the mycelial growth of Colletotrichum gloeosporioides on potato-dextrose-agar medium. Tuberose absolute showed only mild activity at a concentration of 500 mg/L. However, three constituents present in the absolute, namely geraniol,(More)
Three alkyl coumarates (hexadecyl coumarate, eicosyl coumarate and docosyl coumarate) and five alkyl ferulates (tetradecyl ferulate, pentadecyl ferulate, heptadecyl ferulate, octadecyl ferulate and nonadecyl ferulate) could be tentatively detected in the partially purified HPLC fraction of Ipomoea carnea subsp. fistulosa by high resolution electrospray(More)
The fungitoxicity data of some monohydric alcohols on the mycelial growth inhibition of Colletotrichum gloeosporioides were subjected to quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) studies. The very large variation in the median effective concentrations ranging from >24000 mg/L [pEC(50) (mol/L) = 0.11] in the case of methanol to <100 mg/L [pEC(50)(More)
Hexane, ethyl acetate and methanol extractives of Coleus forskohlii roots exhibit mycelial growth inhibition of Colletotrichum gloeosporioides and spore germination inhibition of Alternaria solani. Forskolin, a diterpene present in C. forskohlii exhibit dose dependent spore germination inhibition of A. solani, this being the first report on the antifungal(More)
Bioassay monitored HPLC assisted isolation and purification of the chief antifungal fraction of the leaves of Ipomoea carnea subsp. fistulosa (Convulvulaceae) were achieved using Colletotrichum gloeosporioides and Cladosporium cucumerinum as test organisms. The activity of the purified fraction was further confirmed by the dose dependent inhibition of the(More)
Antifungal activity assay of the methanol extract of the aerial parts of the plant Andrographis paniculata revealed that it exhibits mycelial growth inhibition of Fusarium solani and spore germination inhibition of Alternaria solani. Pure andrographolide present in the methanol extract also exhibited spore germination inhibition of A. solani. Quantitative(More)
