This work aimed at comparing larvicidal activity of essential oils extracted from the dried leaves of Alpinia speciosa, Cymbopogon citratus, and Rosmarinus officinalis against Ae. aegypti larvae. The larvae were observed for 4 h and at 24 h according to a completely randomized design with three replications and the following concentrations [μl/ml]: 0.25,(More)
BACKGROUND Naringin is an important flavanone with several biological activities, including antioxidant action. However, this compound shows low solubility in lipophilic preparations, such as is used in the cosmetic and food industries. One way to solve this problem is to add fatty acids to the flavonoid sugar unit using immobilized lipase. However, there(More)
The fragmentation of six plumeran indole alkaloids (PIAs) previously isolated from Aspidosperma spruceanum has been investigated by electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry (ESI-MS/MS) in the positive ion mode. The fragmentation pathways have been established on the basis of MS/MS experiments using fragment ions generated in-source and(More)
This is the first phytochemical study of Eupatorium macrocephalum describing the isolation and identification of six triterpenes, one diterpene glycoside ester, six steroids, one flavonoid known as cirsilol, and six cinnamic acids derivatives. The structures of these known compounds were determined by spectral data analysis and comparison with literature(More)
The pharmacotherapy for Alzheimer's disease (AD) includes the use of acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (AChEI). Recent investigations for novel AD therapeutic agents from plants suggested that Tabernaemontana genus is a promising source of novel anticholinesterasic indole alkaloids. In this work two fast screening techniques were combined in order to easily(More)
Lichens are a form of symbiont between a fungus and an alga or cyanobacterium, which contains a wide variety of organic compounds with certain secondary metabolite classes typical of these organisms. The Ramalina genus has approximately 246 species distributed around the World, of which in this review approximately 118 species with published chemical or(More)
The inhibitory effects of the ethyl acetate extract and capsaicin (1) and dihydrocapsaicin (2) isolated from fruits of Capsicum annuum chili pepper type, and synthetic capsaicinoid derivatives (N-(4-hydroxyphenylethyl)decamide (3), (E)-N-(4-hydroxy-3-methoxybenzyl)-3,7-dimethylocta-2,6-dienamide (4),(More)
Two new terpenoids, ambrosanoli-10(14)-en-11,12-diol (1), a sesquiterpene named quadrijugol, and a pregnane steroid, 3beta,4beta-dihydroxypregnan-16-one (2), were isolated from the stem and leaves of Trichilia quadrijuga, along with eleven known compounds, spathulenol, kudtdiol, 2beta,3beta,4beta-trihydroxypregnan-16-one, bourjotinolone B, piscidinol,(More)
Three new pyranonaphthoquinones: 5-hydroxy-6-methoxy-alpha-lapachone, 5,6-dihydroxy-a-lapachone and 4',5-dihydroxy-6-methoxy-alpha-lapachone, and two known compounds: lapachol and 5,5'-dihydroxy-3',4',7-trimethoxyflavanone, were isolated from the stem bark of Melloa quadrivalvis. Their structures were established by spectrometric data, mainly 1D- and 2D-NMR(More)
