In order to identify natural products for plant disease control, the essential oil of star anise (Illicium verum Hook. f.) fruit was investigated for its antifungal activity on plant pathogenic fungi. The fruit essential oil obtained by hydro-distillation was analyzed for its chemical composition by gas chromatography (GC) and gas chromatography-mass(More)
An antimicrobial sesquiterpene was separated by bioassay-guided isolation from the petroleum ether fraction of the ethanol crude extract of Eucalyptus globulus Labill (Myrtaceae) fruits, and was identified as globulol by physicochemical properties and spectroscopic analysis. Mycelial growth method revealed that the median effective inhibitory concentration(More)
Five spirobisnaphthalenes, namely palmarumycin CP17 (1), diepoxin kappa (2), diepoxin eta (3), diepoxin xi (4), and diepoxin gamma (5), were isolated from the endophytic fungus Dzf12 associated with the medicinal plant Dioscorea zingiberensis C. H. Wright. Their structures were identified by physicochemical and spectrometric analysis. Among these(More)
Volatile oils were obtained by hydro-distillation from Gliomastix murorum and Pichia guilliermondii, two endophytic fungi isolated from the traditional Chinese medicinal herb Paris polyphylla var. yunnanensis. The oils were analyzed for their chemical composition by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Palmitic acid (15.5%), (E)-9-octadecenoic acid(More)
This paper studies the e¤ect of political liberalisation on ...nancial development in two steps. First, the paper examines whether political liberalisation in terms of institutional improvement promotes ...nancial development, using a panel dataset of 90 developed and developing countries over 1960-99. The empirical evidence reveals a positive effect on(More)
Two sterols and one fatty acid were obtained by bioassay-guided fractionation from the light petroleum extract of the fungus Fusarium sp. Ppf4 isolated from the rhizomes of Paris polyphylla var. yunnanensis Hand.-Mazz., a medicinal species distributed in the southwest of China. The compounds were elucidated as 5alpha, 8alpha-epidioxyergosta-6,(More)
This paper studies the fundamental determinants of cross-country di¤erences in ...nancial development. Two prominent tools for addressing model uncertainty, Bayesian Model Averaging and Generalto-speci...c approaches, are jointly applied to investigate the ...nancial development e¤ects of a wide range of variables taken from various sources.
