Integration of botanicals in contemporary medicine: road blocks, checkpoints and go-ahead signals
This review discusses problems that preclude botanicals from integrating into the mainstream contemporary therapeutics and cues that provide impetus for their realisation. Expand
Impact of Herbal Medicines on Conventional Drugs: An Overview
People misinterpret “natural” with “safe”. Unaware of the fact that herbal medicine contains pharmacological active constituents in unknown quantities; people use herbal medicinal products (HMPs)Expand


Authentication and quantitative analysis on the chemical profile of cassia bark (cortex cinnamomi) by high-pressure liquid chromatography.
It is suggested that five characteristic peaks by HPLC are suitable for distinguishing genuine cassia bark from the adulterants and could be applied in the quality control of this commodity. Expand
Chemical polymorphism and antifungal activity of essential oils from leaves of different provenances of indigenous cinnamon (Cinnamomum osmophloeum).
Results from the antifungal tests demonstrated that the leaf essential oils of cinnamaldehyde type and cinnAMaldehyde/cinnamyl acetate type had an excellent inhibitory effect against white-rot fungi, Trametes versicolor and Lenzites betulina and brown-rot fungus Laetiporus sulphureus. Expand
Fumigant activity of plant essential oils and components from garlic (Allium sativum) and clove bud (Eugenia caryophyllata) oils against the Japanese termite (Reticulitermes speratus Kolbe).
Clove bud and garlic oils showed the most potent antitermitic activity among the plant essential oils and merit further study as potential fumigants for termite control. Expand
Chemical composition and mosquito larvicidal activity of essential oils from leaves of different Cinnamomum osmophloeum provenances.
Results of larvicidal tests demonstrated that the leaf essential oils of cinnamaldehyde type and cinnAMaldehyde/cinnamyl acetate type had an excellent inhibitory effect against the fourth-instar larvae of Aedes aegypti. Expand
Cross-sensitization patterns in guinea pigs between cinnamaldehyde, cinnamyl alcohol and cinnamic acid.
The study suggests that cinnamaldehyde is the "true" allergen, while cinn amyl alcohol and cinnamic acid are transformed in the skin to cinnAMaldehyde, before contact allergic reactions can occur. Expand
Fungicidal activity of essential oils of Cinnamomum zeylanicum (L.) and Syzygium aromaticum (L.) Merr et L.M.Perry against crown rot and anthracnose pathogens isolated from banana
Cinnamon and clove essential oils could be used as antifungal agents to manage post harvest fungal diseases of banana. Expand

Cinnamomum zeylanicum, Nees in Wall is one of the world's oldest spices and form the basis of a variety of synthetically derived chemicals used in the food and cosmetic industries. Expand
Cinnamaldehyde content in foods determined by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.
Eugenol, both pure and in cinnamon oil, when added to pure cinnamaldehyde protected the aldehyde against heat destruction, the possible mechanism of this effect and the significance of these findings for food chemistry and microbiology are discussed. Expand
Chemical composition of the flower oil of Cinnamomum zeylanicum blume.
The steam-distilled oil of cinnamon (Cinnamomum zeylanicum) flowers was analyzed by GC and GC-MS and a total of 26 compounds constituting approximately 97% of the oil were characterized. Expand
Insecticidal and fumigant activities of Cinnamomum cassia bark-derived materials against Mechoris ursulus (Coleoptera: attelabidae).
Results indicate that the insecticidal activity of test compounds was attributable to fumigant action, although there is also significant contact toxicity. Expand
