Diospyros is numerically and economically the most important genus of Ebenaceae. The medicinal uses and chemical constituents of various Diospyros species are now reviewed. About 300 organic chemicals have been isolated and identified. The uniqueness of the genus is the elaboration of a large number of pentacyclic triterpenes and juglone based(More)
The major metabolites of Diopsyros melanoxylon viz. amyrins and ursolic acid and their lipophilic 3-O-fatty acid ester chains (C12-C18), which are synthesized now under mild esterification conditions in excellent yields (80-95%), were evaluated for their antimicrobial activity against a series of Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria. Significantly these(More)
Two novel butanol rhamnopyranosides (1 and 2), along with nine known compounds (3-11), have been isolated from various non-polar and polar extracts of an Indian traditional herb, Euphorbia hirta. The structures of the new compounds were elucidated as n-butyl-1-O-beta-L-rhamnopyranoside (1) and n-butyl-1-O-alpha-L-rhamnopyranoside (2) by spectroscopic(More)
A series of seventeen novel analogs of ursolic and oleanolic acid were synthesized (60–98 %), and evaluated for their anti-cancer potential against a panel of eight human cancer cell lines. Compounds (3–10) showed comparable or better activities than their respective parent compounds against SiHa and HeLa (Cervix), A-549 (Lung), and IMR-32 (Neuroblastoma)(More)
The 3-O-fatty acid ester derivatives (C(12)-C(18)) of two pentacyclic triterpenic acids, ursolic acid and oleanolic acid, were synthesized under mild esterification conditions in excellent yields (80-85%) and screened for their antifeedant activity, together with the parent acids, against the agricultural pest tobacco caterpillar larvae (Spodoptera litura(More)
Six novel oleanolic acid ring-A fused hybrids (5-10) have been synthesized by employing a four step protocol with the introduction of benzylidene functionality at C-2 as the key step. Their structures were established by high resolution NMR and Mass spectral data. The synthesized compounds have been screened against seven human cancer cell lines including(More)
The 3-keto functionality in ring A of myrrhanone C, a natural bicyclic triterpene has been chemically modified and synthesized 27 novel triazole hybrids belonging to two different series in very good to excellent yields (66-83%). The synthesized compounds were thoroughly characterized by their spectroscopic data (IR, (1)H&(13)C NMR, HRMS). All the(More)
Six novel 5,6-fused hybrids such as dihydrobenzofuran-quinone (4a and 4b), benzofuran-quinone (5a and 5b) and chromene-quinone (6a and 6b) of juglone based 1,4-naphthoquinones were synthesized by employing a three step protocol with the cyclisation of o-allyl phenol as the key step. The anticancer activity of the newly synthesized compounds was evaluated in(More)
Extensive chromatographic screening of extracts of the fruits of the Indian Ayurvedic plant, Dendrophthoe falcata, resulted in the isolation of three new triterpenes, 3beta-acetoxy-1beta-(2-hydroxy-2-propoxy)-11alpha-hydroxy-olean-12-ene (1), 3beta-acetoxy-11alpha-ethoxy-1beta-hydroxy-olean-12-ene (2) and(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY Since Tephrosia purpurea (Linn.) Pers. (Fabaceae) has traditional use in curing different types of wounds including gastroduodenal ulcers, it was of interest to evaluate the in vitro anti-Helicobacter pylori activity profile of the plant extract and its fractions with a view to examining its therapeutic potential, if any.
