Mosquito repellent activity of essential oils of aromatic plants growing in Argentina.
Comparisons of the principal components of each EO suggest that limonene and camphor were the main components responsible for the repellent effects, and compared to DEET, most EO were effective. Expand
Plant growth promoting rhizobacteria improve growth and essential oil yield in Origanum majorana L
Abstract Effects of root colonization by plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) on biomass, and qualitative and quantitative composition of essential oils, were determined in the aromatic cropExpand
Fumigant and Repellent Properties of Essential Oils and Component Compounds Against Permethrin-Resistant Pediculus humanus capitis (Anoplura: Pediculidae) from Argentina
Some Argentinean plants contain essential oils and components that function as fumigants or as repellents and thereby show potential for development of new control products for head lice. Expand
Seed composition of soybean cultivars evaluated in different environmental regions
Saturated fatty acids were relatively constant over regions, while significant variation was observed among environments for the unsaturated acids, and there were significant varietal differences, but no important interaction of genotypes and environmental factors was observed. Expand
Bioactivity of Essential Oils and Their Components
The present review demonstrates that EOs and their components have many functional properties and exert their action in mammals as well as in other organisms (insects, fungi, bacteria and viruses).Expand
Antimicrobial combined action of terpenes against the food‐borne microorganisms Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus cereus
The aims of this work were to study the antimicrobial activity of nine monoterpenes and the synergistic or antagonistic associations between them, and to relate water solubility, H-bonding and pKaExpand
Effect of monoterpenes on lipid oxidation in maize
The monoterpenes 1,8-cineole, thymol, geraniol, menthol and camphor strongly inhibited the root growth of Zea mays L. seedlings. They induced an oxidative stress as measured by the production ofExpand
Essential oils composition of Ocimum basilicum L. and Ocimum gratissimum L. from Kenya and their inhibitory effects on growth and fumonisin production by Fusarium verticillioides.
Abstract This work investigated the constituents and the efficacy against Fusarium verticillioides infection and fumonisin production of essential oils of Ocimum basilicum L. and Ocimum gratissimumExpand
Tagetes minuta and Schinus areira essential oils as allelopathic agents
The bioassay of T. minuta and S. areira oils and their pure principal components revealed strong inhibitory activity of the root growth of Zea mays seedlings and the main components of the essential oils presented an increase in malondialdehyde values from 24 to 48 h indicating lipid peroxidation.

Interaction between terpenes and penicillin on bacterial strains resistant to beta- lactam antibiotics
INTRODUCTION A variety of medicinal plants possess the capacity to synthesize aromatic compounds called essential oils, which are obtained either by hydrodistillation or by expression. These oils areExpand
