In traditional oriental medicine, apricot (Prunus armeniaca L.) seed has been used to treat skin diseases such as furuncle, acne vulgaris and dandruff, as well as coughing, asthma and constipation. This study describes the phytochemical profile and antimicrobial potential of the essential oil obtained from apricot seeds (Armeniacae Semen). The essential oil isolated by hydrodistillation was analysed by gas chromatography–mass spectroscopy. Benzaldehyde (90.6%), mandelonitrile (5.2%) and benzoic… 
Characterization and Antimicrobial Activity of Volatile Constituents from Fresh Fruits of Alchornea cordifolia and Canthium subcordatum
TLDR
The antimicrobial activities of A. cordifolia and C. subcordatum fruit essential oils are a function of their distinct chemical profiles; their volatiles and biological activities are reported for the first time.
Extraction, Chemical Composition, and Antifungal Activity of Essential Oil of Bitter Almond
TLDR
BAEO has the great potential to be developed as a botanical and agricultural fungicide and in vivo antifungal activity of BAEO was much higher than Blumeria graminis.
A Comparative Study of the in Vitro Antimicrobial and Synergistic Effect of Essential Oils from Laurus nobilis L. and Prunus armeniaca L. from Morocco with Antimicrobial Drugs: New Approach for Health Promoting Products
TLDR
The synergistic interaction between the studied EOs and standard antibiotics may constitute promising anti-infective agents useful for treating diseases induced by antibiotic-resistant pathogens.
Chemical Composition and Antioxidant Properties of Oils from the Seeds of Five Apricot (Prunus armeniaca L.) Cultivars.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that apricot seeds are a potential source of oil that can have both dietary and cosmetic applications and among the cultivars tested, the 'Somo' cultivar grown in Poland provides the most oil, with the highest antioxidant activity.
Chemical composition and biological activity of the plum seed extract
TLDR
The results of the antimicrobial study indicate that the plum seed extract has a greater effect on Gram-negative bacteria compared with amygdalin, and the extract showed a greater antimicrobial activity against the same microbiological strains.
