The bioassay-guided fractionation of this extract led to identification of the triterpenes ursolic acid and oleanolic acid as the(More)
Eight organo-iron ferrocene derivatives and arenocenium salts were prepared and evaluated by "in vitro" assay against one strain of Trypanosoma cruzi (Y). Six of the eight organo-iron compounds assayed, piperazinium diferrocenoate 1, eta(6)-(o-xylene)-eta(5)-(cyclopentadienyl) Iron(II) hexafluorophosphate 3, eta(6)-(mesitylene)-eta(5)-(cyclopentadienyl)(More)
