The present study describes the total phenolic content, concentrations of flavonoids and in vitro antioxidant and antimicrobial activity of methanol extracts from Seseli pallasii Besser, S. libanotis (L.) Koch ssp. libanotis and S. libanotis (L.) Koch ssp. intermedium (Rupr.) P. W. Ball, growing wild in Serbia. The total phenolic content in the extracts was(More)
In this paper, the chemical composition and biological activity of the essential oil of Artemisia absinthium was studied. The aim of this study was to investigate the potential of ethnopharmacological uses of this plant species in the treatment of gastrointestinal diseases and wounds, and as an insect repellent. The aerial part of the plant was(More)
The objective of the present study to perform a comparative analysis of the chemical composition, antioxidant, and antimicrobial activities of the essential oils of plant species Hyssopus officinalis, Achillea grandifolia, Achillea crithmifolia, Tanacetum parthenium, Laserpitium latifolium, and Artemisia absinthium from Balkan Peninsula. The chemical(More)
The antibacterial activity (minimal inhibitory concentration—MIC) of selected 4-phenyl hydroxycoumarins was evaluated using Micro-well Dilution Assay against 20 laboratory bacterial control strains (ATCC). The highest antibacterial activity was found for 5,7-dihydroxy-4-phenyl coumarin and the lowest for 7-hydroxy-4-phenyl coumarin. All tested compounds had(More)
Cachrys cristata DC. (Apiaceace) is a rare and critically endangered species in the flora of Serbia. Essential oil isolated by hydrodistillation from the aerial parts and fruits of this species was analyzed using combined GC and GC/MS. The oil from the aerial parts was rich in sesquiterpenes (45.7%) and oxygenated sesquiterpenes (32.9%), while the fruit oil(More)
The genus Geum with ca. 60 species in the family Rosaceae is primarily found in temperate or montane regions of Europe, Asia, North and South America, Africa, and New Zealand [1]. Geum rhodopeum Stoj. & Stef. is representative of the East Moesian [moes. (E)] endemic taxa of the Balkan floristic subregion [2]. Geum species are used in traditional medicine(More)
In the current work, in vitro antioxidant, antibacterial, and antifungal activites of the needle terpenes of three taxa of Pinus nigra from Serbia (ssp. nigra, ssp. pallasiana, and var. banatica) were analyzed. The black pine essential oils showed generally weak antioxidative properties tested by two methods (DPPH and ABTS scavenging assays), where the(More)
The genus Geum with ca. 60 species in the family Rosaceae is primarily found in temperate or montane regions of Europe, Asia, North and South America, Africa, and New Zealand [1]. Geum coccineum is representative of the subendemic taxa and native to the Balkan region and Asia Minor [2]. Geum species are used in traditional medicine and exhibit antiviral,(More)
