Dioxin emissions from wood combustion
The emissions of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDD) and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDF) from combustion of different kinds of wood have been determined. Emissions from natural beech woodExpand
Distribution of a new rosmarinic acid derivative in Eryngium alpinum L. and other Apiaceae.
Results indicate that the new derivative R-(+)-3'-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl rosmarinic acid is a potential chemotaxonomic marker of the Saniculoideae subfamily. Expand

Leontopodic acid—a novel highly substituted glucaric acid derivative from Edelweiss (Leontopodium alpinum Cass.) and its antioxidative and DNA protecting properties
Abstract Leontopodic acid—a novel full substituted hexaric acid derivative, was isolated from the aerial parts of Edelweiss ( Leontopodium alpinum Cass.) as one of the major compounds. The complexExpand
Metabolite profiling for caffeic acid oligomers in Satureja biflora
Satureja biflora, known as “lemon savory”, grows widely in Southern and Eastern parts of Africa. The plant has been used in Kenyan and Tanzanian traditional medicine as an antimicrobial, spasmolytic,Expand
Molluscicidal Saponins from Talinum tenuissimum DINTER
Two new saponins, β-D-glucopyranosyl 3-O[O-βD-xylopyranosyl-(13)-O-(β-D-glucopyranosyluronic acid)]oleanolate (1) and 3-O-[O-β-D-xylopyranosyl-(13)-O-(β-D-glucopyranosyluronic acid)]oleanolic acidExpand
Fungicidal and molluscicidal saponins from Dolichos kilimandscharicus
Abstract Three saponins with molluseicidal and fungicidal activities have been isolated from the roots of Dolichos kilimandscharicus . They were shown to be the 3- O -β- d -glucopyranosides ofExpand
The diacetylene 11,12-dehydrofalcarinol from Hedera helix
Abstract A new diacetylene, 11,12-dehydrofaicarinol, was isolated from the ornamental ivy Hedera helix cv. Hahn's self-branching. Published 13 C NMR assignments of falcarinol and related compoundsExpand
Human maximization test of falcarinol, the principal contact allergen of English ivy and Algerian ivy (Hedera helix, H. canariensis)
In a human maximization test of 5% falcarinol isolated isolated from Hedera helix, 10 of 20 subjects were sensitized and became sensitive to 1%, with 3 of these giving 3+ to 4+ bullous reactions. Expand
