Many of the edible wild plants that are included in local food baskets have both therapeutic and dietary functions. Such medicinal foods have been part of Eastern medicinal theories since ancient times and have recently received attention in the USA and Europe within the fields of functional foods, neutraceuticals and phyto-nutrients. This paper provides an(More)
Four iridoid glucosides, three of which are dimeric were isolated from the methanol extract of roots of Vietnamese Paederia scandens (Lour) Merrill together with the five known glucosides, paederoside, asperuloside, paederosidic acid, asperulosidic acid and geniposide. Seven sulfur-containing iridoid glucosides were also isolated. The structures of the(More)
Cytotoxicity-guided phytochemical investigation of a methanolic extract of Croton tonkinensis afforded two new kaurane diterpenoids (1, 2) and 10 known ent-kaurane-type diterpenoids (3- 12). The structures of 1 and 2 were based on analysis of spectroscopic and mass spectral data. Compounds 3- 12 were identified by comparison of their spectroscopic and(More)
The methanolic extract of Piper lolot, having shown potent inhibitory activity on platelet aggregation induced by arachidonic acid (AA) and platelet activating factor (PAF), was subjected to activity-guided isolation to yield twelve new amide alkaloids, piperlotine A-L (1-12), along with twenty-nine known compounds. Their structures were elucidated on the(More)
Ocimum Basilicum L. (Sweet Basil) is cultivated commercially in many countries (e.g., India, France, Marocco, Italy) mainly for its essential oil, which is used extensively in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. The medicinal properties of the plant are highlighted by its use as a carminative and stimulant. The seeds are said to have demulcent and(More)
The title compound, C(18)H(17)NO, was isolated from the seeds of Clausena lansium (wampee) (Rutaceae). The X-ray crystal structure analysis confirmed its chemical identity and revealed that it is solvent-free, in contrast to the previously reported monohydrate [Huang, Ou & Tang (2006 ▶). Acta Cryst. E62, o1987-o1988]. The mol-ecular structures are(More)
Four new furanoditerpenoids, fibrauretin A ( 1), fibrauretinoside A ( 2), epi-fibrauretinoside A ( 3), and epi-12-palmatoside G ( 4), and a new ecdysteroid glucoside, fibraurecdyside A ( 5), together with seven known compounds including two furanoditerpenoids ( 6 and 7), an ecdysteroid ( 8), and four quaternary protoberberine alkaloids ( 9- 12) were(More)
The investigation on the chemical constituents of the whole plant of Abutilon indicum has resulted in the isolation of two new compounds, abutilin A (1) and (R)-N-(1'-methoxycarbonyl-2'-phenylethyl)-4-hydroxybenzamide (2), as well as 28 known compounds. The structures of the two new compounds were established on the basis of the spectroscopic analysis, and(More)
