  author={C. Romagnoli and R. Bruni and E. Andreotti and M. Rai and C. Vicentini and D. Mares},
Summary.The essential oil extracted by steam distillation from the capitula of Indian Tagetes patula, Asteraceae, was evaluated for its antifungal properties and analyzed by gas chromatography and gas chromatography–mass spectrometry. Thirty compounds were identified, representing 89.1% of the total detected. The main components were piperitone (24.74%), piperitenone (22.93%), terpinolene (7.8%), dihydro tagetone (4.91%), cis-tagetone (4.62%), limonene (4.52%), and allo-ocimene (3.66%). The oil… Expand

GC-MS analysis of the essential oils of four tagetes species and the anti-microbial activity of Tagetes minuta
The chemical composition of essential oils from the flowering plants of four Tagetes species was examined by GC-MS. Of the species examined only T. minuta L. was rich in β-ocimene. The other majorExpand
Antifungal effects of α‐terthienyl from Tagetes patula on five dermatophytes
UVA‐activated αT would appear to target protein‐rich membranes of the dermatophytes, and the fungal growth was reduced or arrested with marked responses for T. mentagrophytes, T. rubrum and M. cookei. Expand
