Toxic essential oils: anxiolytic, antinociceptive and antimicrobial properties of the yarrow Achillea umbellata Sibth. et Sm. (Asteraceae) volatiles.
Testing of antimicrobial activity demonstrated that the Achillea umbellata oil possesses moderate activity against pathogenic microorganisms, but the effect of the oil differs in pro- and eukaryotic cells.
Geranium macrorrhizum L. (Geraniaceae) Essential Oil: A Potent Agent Against Bacillus subtilis
It is determined that germacrone, the major constituent of the oil from aerial parts, was not the sole agent responsible for the observed activity, and the oils consisted mainly of sesquiterpenoids.
Biological activities of the extracts from wild growing Origanum vulgare L
Abstract The present work was undertaken to determine the total phenol, flavonoid and tannin content in five extracts of Origanum vulgare growing wild in southwest Serbia as well as to evaluate
Spasmolytic, antimicrobial and cytotoxic activities of 5-phenylpentyl isothiocyanate, a new glucosinolate autolysis product from horseradish (Armoracia rusticana P. Gaertn., B. Mey. & Scherb.,
The occurrence of PhPeITC is the first direct proof of the existence of a 5-phenylpentyl glucosinolate in the aerial parts of this species as one of the possible "mustard oil" precursors.
Toxic essential oils. Part IV: The essential oil of Achillea falcata L. as a source of biologically/pharmacologically active trans-sabinyl esters.
Detailed spectral analyses of the essential oils obtained from above- and underground parts of a previously unreported chemotype of Achillea falcata L. (Asteraceae) and, for the first time, on the biological/toxicological profile of its dominant/newly discovered volatile metabolites are reported.
Chemical composition and antimicrobial activity of the essential oils of Geranium columbinum L. and G. lucidum L. (Geraniaceae)
The chemistry of Geranium columbinum and G. lucidum volatiles has been studied here for the first time. The essential oils were obtained by hydrodistillation, analyzed by GC and GC-MS, and screened
Chemical composition and antimicrobial activity of the volatile oils of Geranium sanguineum L. and G. robertianum L. (Geraniaceae)
Volatile compounds of Geranium sanguineum and G. robertianum were isolated by hydrodistillation, analyzed in detail by GC and GC/MS and screened for their in vitro antibacterial and antifungal
A new antimicrobial glucosinolate autolysis product, 4-isothiocyanatobutanoic acid, from the diffuse wallflower (Erysimum diffusum): Methyl 4-isothiocyanatobutanoate, a long unrecognized artifact of
4-Isothiocyanatobutanoic acid was assayed for antimicrobial activity and demonstrated significant inhibitory and microbicidal activity against important human pathogens and could be an artifact of the isolation procedure.
Volatiles of Geranium purpureum Vill. and Geranium phaeum L.: Chemotaxonomy of Balkan Geranium and Erodium Species (Geraniaceae)
High chemical similarity of the two genera, visible from the obtained dendrograms and biplots, confirm the close phylogenetic relationship between the investigated Geranium and Erodium taxa, i.e., that there is no great intergeneric oil‐composition variability.
Chemical Composition of the Essential Oil and Diethyl Ether Extract of Trinia glauca (L.) Dumort. (Apiaceae) and the Chemotaxonomic Significance of 5‐O‐Methylvisamminol
5‐O‐Methylvisamminol, a (furo)chromone identified in the extract of T. glauca, has a limited occurrence in the plant kingdom and is a possible excellent chemotaxonomic marker (family and/or subfamily level) for Apiaceae.
