A formylated triterpene named cladocalol has been isolated from the leaves of Eucalyptus cladocalyx, together with ursulolactone acetate, ursolic acid, 3 beta-acetate-12,20(29)-lupadien-28-oic acid, beta-sitosterol and the known flavonoid eucalyptine. Their structures were mainly established by extensive NMR studies (1H NMR, 13C NMR, DEPT, 1H-1H COSY, HSQC,(More)
In this paper we report the isolation and structural elucidation of a new flavonoid (1) and three known compounds, 6,8-di-C-methylkaempferol 3-methyl ether (2), oleanolic acid, and 2 alpha,3 beta-dihydroxyurs-12-en-28-oic acid, from aerial parts of Eucalyptus occidentalis collected in Algeria. Flavonoids 1 and 2 were used to study their biological(More)
A new iridoid (1) and a new phenylethanoid glycoside (4), together with five known compounds (2, 3, 5, 6 and 7), were isolated for the first time from the ethyl acetate soluble part of the hydroalcoholic extract of the aerial parts of Cistanche violacea Desf. (Orobanchaceae), an endemic species of the North of the Sahara. The structures of these compounds(More)
This is a review on 95 references dealing with the genus Linaria (Scrophularioideae-Antirrhineae tribe), a known genus of the Scrophulariaceae family, which comprises about 200 species mainly distributed in Europe, Asia and North Africa. The use of some Linaria species in folk medicine has attracted the attention for chemical and biological studies. This(More)
Thymelaea microphylla Coss. et Dur. (Thymelaeaceae) is a rare medicinal plant endemic to Algeria. In order to continue our studies on this species, herein we report the isolation and characterisation of 20 compounds from a hydroalcoholic extract (EtOH-H2O 7:3) of the aerial parts. They include monoterpene glucosides (1-3), phenolic acid derivatives (4, 8(More)
A new flavone glucoside, apigenin 4'-(6″-methylglucuronide) (1), together with six known compounds, cirsilineol, jaceosidin, melitensin, apigenin, apigenin 7-(6″-methylglucuronide) and prunasin, were isolated from the ethanolic extract of the aerial parts of Centaurea nicaeensis All. var. walliana M. (Asteraceae) collected from Souk-Ahras, eastern Algeria.(More)
Phytochemical investigations of chloroform and ethyl acetate extracts from the aerial parts of Warionia sa-harae Benth. & Coss. from Algeria resulted in the isolation of ten Their structures were elucidated on the basis of extensive spectroscopic analysis and comparison with the related known compounds. The EtOAc extract which was evaluated for DPPH radical(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the chemical composition of a moderately polar extract (CHCl3 soluble part of the MeOH-H2O extract) obtained from the aerial parts (leaves and flowers) of Centaurea diluta Ait. subsp. algeriensis (Coss. & Dur.) Maire, a species endemic to Algeria and Morocco on which no reports are available to date. To evaluate in vitro the(More)
