From the dichloromethane extract of Ulex airensis three new isoflavonoids, ulexin C (1), ulexin D (2), and 7-O-methylisolupalbigenin (3), were isolated and characterized by spectroscopic methods. Ulexin D (2) was also identified from the dichloromethane extract of Ulex europaeus ssp. europaeus. Together with these new metabolites, 18 compounds of previously known structures were isolated and identified from both species. The antifungal activity of these compounds was tested against Cladosporium… Expand
Ulex europaeus: from noxious weed to source of valuable isoflavones and flavanones
The screening and quantification of the main phenolic compounds in leaves and flowers of Ulex europaeus (gorse) was carried out by high-performance liquid chromatography with electrospray ionizatioExpand
On the bioherbicide potential of Ulex europaeus and Cytisus scoparius: Profiles of volatile organic compounds and their phytotoxic effects
By means of volatile bioassays, the flowering fresh plant material of both shrub species was shown to produce and emit volatile organic compounds able to inhibit the germination and/or early growth of two agricultural weeds: Amaranthus retroflexus and Digitaria sanguinalis. Expand
Efecto de extractos de Ulex europaeus L. en la producción de biomasa de plántulas de ají (Capsicum annuum L.), en condiciones de laboratorio
In high doses of Hm extract, an increase in GM was observed compared to control; but in DM, it was not; therefore, feasibility of using U. europaeus extracts to increase GM and DM production in C. annuum can be ensured. Expand
Effect of Ulex europaeus L. extracts on polyphenol concentration in Capsicum annuum L. and Lactuca sativa L.
Under laboratory conditions the polyphenol content rose with increasing extract doses in both species, but this tendency was not observed in the greenhouse, which opens up the possibility of cultivating species with higher antioxidant contents using natural products. Expand
A prenylated acridone alkaloid and ferulate xanthone from barks of Citrus medica (Rutaceae)
Abstract A new prenylated acridone alkaloid, medicacridone (1), and a new ferulate xanthone, medicaxanthone (5), together with 11 known compounds were isolated from the methanol extract of the barkExpand

Cytisus scoparius and Ulex europaeus Produce Volatile Organic Compounds with Powerful Synergistic Herbicidal Effects
Powerful synergistic inhibitory effects were revealed for germination and early growth of Amaranthus retroflexus and Digitaria sanguinalis and certain volatile organic compounds produced by Ulex europaeus and Cytisus scoparius were argued to be responsible for the phytotoxicity of both shrub species.

Flavonoids from Cyclopia genistoides and Their Xanthine Oxidase Inhibitory Activity.
Nine compounds are reported for the first time from this species, and six from the genus Cyclopia, and these compounds, together with previously isolated secondary metabolites, were tested for xanthine oxidase inhibitory activity. Expand
Complete 1H and 13C NMR data assignment of new constituents from Severinia buxifolia
Phytochemical analysis of different organs of the rutaceaeous plant Severinia buxifolia led to the isolation of a new limonoid, a new acridone alkaloid, and a new flavone. Structure elucidation andExpand
Water-soluble phenolic acids and flavonoids involved in the bioherbicidal potential of Ulex europaeus and Cytisus scoparius
Abstract The use of allelopathic foliage incorporated into the soil as a bioherbicidal amendment is a promising weed management strategy which allows combining a cocktail of allelochemicals at lowExpand
