BackgroundAround the turn of this century, the oil yield and chemical composition of Australian Leptospermum species was analysed. Since that time, research has been focused on their use as phytomedicines. The oil yield and composition of essential oils from Australian Leptospermum species directly impacts their commercialisation for medicinal use.ResultsThe essential oils from Leptospermum (L.) juniperinum, L. laevigatum, L. liversidgei, L. polygalifolium, L. semibaccatum, L. speciosum, L… Expand

Chemical Composition and Biological Activities of the Essential Oils of Leptospermum petersonii and Eucalyptus gunnii
TLDR
The aim of this study was to characterize the chemical composition and to evaluate the antimicrobial and phytotoxic properties of the essential oils obtained from leaves of Leptospermum petersonii and Eucalyptus gunnii, native to Australia. Expand
Essential Oils Isolated from Myrtaceae Family as Natural Insecticides
TLDR
It is indicated that pesticides based on Myrtaceae essential oils could be used in a variety of ways to control a large number of insect pests. Expand
An Investigation of Factors that Contribute to Dihydroxyacetone Variation Observed in New Zealand Leptospermum scoparium
TLDR
The DHA/Tsugar of flowers with different hypanthium colour was shown to be dependent on the variety type and the source and reason for DHA still remains unclear and therefore further study is required. Expand
Essential Oils in Food Applications
Historical use of essential oils (EOs) from Australian native plants for therapeutic and food purposes, both by the indigenous people and the early colonial settlers, have been reported. The use ofExpand
Rhytidhyesters A - D, 4 New Chlorinated Cyclopentene Derivatives from the Endophytic Fungus Rhytidhysteron sp. BZM-9.
Four new chlorinated cyclopentene derivatives, rhytidhyesters A - D (1:  - 4: ), were isolated from Rhytidhysteron sp. BZM-9, an endophytic fungus from Leptospermum brachyandrum. The planarExpand

Historical use of essential oils (EOs) from Australian native plants for therapeutic and food purposes, both by the indigenous people and the early colonial settlers, have been reported. The use ofExpand
In vitro antibacterial phenolic extracts from "sugarbag" pot-honeys of Australian stingless bees (Tetragonula carbonaria).
Australian stingless bee honeys have been shown to exert antioxidant and in vitro antimicrobial properties; however their bioactive factors remained unidentified. This study investigated theExpand
Plants that can kill; improving E. coli removal in stormwater treatment systems using Australian plants with antibacterial activity
TLDR
Melaleuca ericifolia, which has been previously applied in stormwater treatment systems, can be a suitable candidate for further study as it demonstrated antibacterial activity within all tested components. Expand
