Chemical composition of the essential oils of serbian wild-growing Artemisia absinthium and Artemisia vulgaris.
The chemical composition of the aerial and root essential oils from Artemisia absinthium L. and Artemisia vulgaris showed a broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity against the tested strains and can be used as flavor and fragrance ingredients.
Composition of the essential oil of �
Volatile constituents from two fresh samples of the subendemic Geocaryum cynapioides (Guss.) L. Engstrand (Apiaceae) obtained by hydrodistillation were analyzed by GC and GC-MS. Forty four and one
Antioxidant, Antimicrobial and Genotoxicity Screening of Hydro-alcoholic Extracts of Five Serbian Equisetum Species
The hydro-alcoholic extracts of five Equisetum species evaluated for their genotoxicity, antimicrobial activity, antioxidant capacity and the results related to the total phenol content and HPLC flavonoid profiles allowed mutual comparison of examined species and their assessment as possible sources of antioxidants, antimicrobials and/or genotoxic substances.
Chemotaxonomic Significance of the Balkan Achillea Volatiles
The present review describes and discusses the chemistry and chemotaxonomic implications, as well as hypothetical biogenetic considerations, of the essential oils isolated from 23 taxa of Balkan
Antimicrobial activity and cytotoxicity of commercial rosemary essential oil (Rosmarinus officinalis L.)
Investigation of rosemary essential oil's activity to germination was performed and it was determined that it had high effect to the germination, and antimicrobial activity testing showed moderate effect to both G-positive and Gnegative bacteria.
Platismatia glaucia and Pseudevernia furfuracea lichens as sources of antioxidant, antimicrobial and antibiofilm agents
It is indicated a possible use of lichens Platismatia glauca and Pseudevernia furfuracea as natural antioxidants and preservatives in food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry.
Antimicrobial Plant Metabolites: Structural Diversity and Mechanism of Action
This review tries to give a critical answer to why there are still no commercially available or commonly used antibiotics of plant origin by considering potential mechanisms of antimicrobial action of PSMs, as well as their physical and chemical properties.
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.
Misidentification of Tansy, Tanacetum Macrophyllum, as Yarrow, Achillea Grandifolia: A Health Risk or Benefit?
This study estimated the potential health risk connected with their misidentification, based on the volatile metabolite profiles of the two species, and suggested that the pharmacological action of the investigated species (or their unintentional mixtures) would be notably different.
