A micro-dilution technique was developed using 96-well microplates and tetrazolium salts to indicate bacterial growth and was useful in screening plants for antimicrobial activity and for the bioassay-guided isolation of antimicrobial compounds from plants.

New isoprenylated flavones, artochamins A--E, and cytotoxic principles from Artocarpus chama.

Five new isoprenylated flavones, artochamins A-E (1-5), together with eight known flavones (6-13), were isolated from the roots of Artocarpus chama. All structures were elucidated by spectroscopic
