Two new compounds, crotmadine (1) and crotmarine (3); a known pyrrolizidine alkaloid, fulvine (8), and three other known compounds, trans-3,4,3',5'-tetra methoxystilbene (5), dihydroalpinumisoflavone (6), and 4',5,7-trihydroxy-3-methoxyflavone (7), have been isolated from the leaves and stems of Crotalaria madurensis. Both crotmadine (1) and crotmarine (3) exhibit antifungal activity against Trichophyton mentagrophytes. 
Crotalic and emarginellic acids: two triterpenes from Crotalaria emarginella and anti-inflammatory and anti-hepatotoxic activity of crotalic acid.
The aerial parts of Crotalaria emarginella Vatke has afforded two triterpenes, characterized as 3alpha-hydroxy-arbor-12-ene-28-carboxylic acid and crotalic acid, which exhibited a significant anti-inflammatory activity and showed anti-hepatotoxic activity against CCl induced toxicity in Wistar rats.

ABSTRACT: The genus Dorstenia contains many plants that are used as anti-infection, anti-snakebite and anti-rheumatic remedies in the medicinal plant therapy of several countries in Africa, Central
Secondary metabolites of the genus Crotalaria (Rattlepods) and their medicinal importance – A review
This review describes the genus Crotalaria focusing on its secondary metabolites and their medicinal applications, which exhibit anticancer,anti-rheumatoid arthritis, anti-allergic, antioxidant, antimicrobial, antiaging and wound healing activities along with many other medicinal applications.
Synthesis of novel substituted 1,3-diaryl propenone derivatives and their antimalarial activity in vitro.
The synthesis of novel 1,3-diaryl propenone derivatives and their antimalarial activity in vitro against asexual blood stages of human malaria parasite, Plasmodium falciparum, are described and the first report on antiplasmodial activity of chalcones with azoles on acetophenone ring is reported.
Barbacarpan, a pterocarpan from Crotalaria barbata
Abstract A new pterocarpan, barbacarpan, has been isolated from the chloroform soluble fraction of an alcoholic extract of the dried aerial parts of Crotalaria barbata . The structure was established
Biological evaluation of the diterpenes from Croton macrostachyus
To clarify whether the seeds of Croton macrostachyus can induce apoptosis, its methanolic extract was first subjected to a clonogenic survival assay, which measures long-term cytotoxic effects. Since

This review is complementary to earlier reviews and covers more recent reports of antimicrobial activity of chalcones (antibacterial and antifungal), as well as antileishmanial, antimalarial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory activities of these compounds.
Furanonaphthoquinones, atraric acid and a benzofuran from the stem barks of Newbouldia laevis.
The series of naturally occurring furanonaphthoquinones is extended by identification of the derivatives 2-hydroxy-dehydro-iso-alpha-lapachone, 2-acetyl-5-hydroxynaphthO[2,3-b]furan-4,9-dione and 2-(1'-methylethenyl)-7-HydroxynAPHtho[ 2, 3-b].
Synthesis of novel 2,4,6-trisubstituted pyrimidine derivatives and their in vitro antimicrobial activity
A series of novel pyrimidines (6a–6i) has been synthesized from corresponding chalcones and isonicotinimidamide.HCl in the presence of potassium carbonate involving Michael addition followed by
Geranylated and prenylated flavonoids from the twigs of Dorstenia mannii
Abstract The twigs of Dorstenia mannii yield three prenylated and one geranylated flavonoids: 3′,4′-(2,2-dimethylchromano)-2′,4-dihydroxychalcone, 3′,4′-6,7- bis
