Essential Oils of Lauraceae: Constituents and Antimicrobial Activity of Dehaasia cuneata (Blume) Blume and Caryodaphnopsis tonkinensis (Lecomte) Airy-Shaw from Vietnam
The herbs, Dehaasia cuneata (Blume) Blume and Caryodaphnopsis tonkinensis (Lecomte) Airy-Shaw (Lauraceae) were used ethnomedically for the treatment of malaria, inflammation and amelioration of microbial infections and the chemical constituents and antimicrobial activity of the essential oils were being reported for the first time.


Isoquinoline Alkaloids from the Leaves of Dehaasia Hainanensis
This study was aimed at investigating the alkaloids present in the leaves of Dehaasia hainanensis. Thirteen isoquinolines were isolated and characterized. Of these, four aporphines [(+)-laurolitsine,
Antiplasmodial and antioxidant isoquinoline alkaloids from Dehaasia longipedicellata.
The crude extract of the bark of Dehaasia longipedicellata exhibited antiplasmodial activity against the growth of Plasmodium falciparum K1 isolate (resistant strain) and may be considered as a good reductant with the ability to chelate metal and prevent pro-oxidant activity.
