Three oxidized heptenes, 7-benzoyloxy-6-oxo-2,4Z-heptadiene-1,4-olide, [7-benzoyloxy-4-hydroxy-1-methoxy-2E,4Z-heptadiene-1,6-dione] and 7-benzoyloxy-6-oxo-2,4E-heptadiene-1,4-olide, were isolated from flowers of Melodorum fruticosum. Their structures were determined by spectral data analysis. The first two compounds exhibited moderate cytotoxicity against a panel of human tumor cell lines, whereas the third was inactive. 
Total Synthesis of γ-Alkylidenebutenolides, Potent Melanogenesis Inhibitors from Thai Medicinal Plant Melodorum fruticosum.
All naturally occurring butenolides were assigned as partial racemic mixtures with respect to the chiral center at C-6, and the melanogenesis inhibitory activities of S- and R-1-4 were evaluated, with all shown to be potent inhibitors. Expand
Isolation and synthesis of melodamide A, a new anti-inflammatory phenolic amide from the leaves of Melodorum fruticosum.
Together with twelve known compounds, melodamide A (1), a new phenolic amide possessing p-quinol moiety, was purified and characterized from the methanolic extracts of the leaves of Melodorum fruticosum, and its analogs were described. Expand
Two new C-benzylated dihydrochalcone derivatives from the leaves of Melodorum siamensis.
Two new C-benzylated dihydrochalcone derivatives and six known flavonoid derivatives were isolated from the leaves of Melodorum siamensis and exhibited strong cytotoxicity against human tumor cell lines KB and NCI-H187. Expand

Total syntheses of melodienones by redox isomerization of propargylic alcohols.
A remarkable base-promoted methodology for the rapid construction of the (E)- and (Z)-γ-oxo-α,β-alkenoic ester skeletons from readily accessible vinyl propargylic alcohols through modified redoxExpand
Cytotoxic against lung cancer cells (CHAGO) by the Thai rejuvenating herbal plants
The results revealed that the cell survival rates were decreased significantly following the treatment with 9 plant ethanolic crude extracts that exhibited the IC50 within 10-1,000 g/ML, which confirms the potential of certain Thai rejuvenating herbal plants in antiproliferation against lung cancer cells.

Carbon-13 NMR Spectroscopy of Flavonoids
Carbon-13 with a natural abundance of only 1.1% and a smaller magnetic moment than 1H (and hence a weaker NMR signal) was for many years a nucleus relatively inaccessible to NMR spectroscopists.Expand
Evaluation of a tetrazolium-based semiautomated colorimetric assay: assessment of chemosensitivity testing.
The clonogenic assay was more sensitive when continuous drug exposures were utilized, although this was primarily related to the increased drug exposure time, and therefore it offers a valid, simple method of assessing chemosensitivity in established cell lines. Expand
A study of some variables in a tetrazolium dye (MTT) based assay for cell growth and chemosensitivity.
Comparative chemosensitivity data for EMT6 mouse tumour cells show good agreement between results obtained using the MTT assay and results based on total cell count after a fixed period of growth. Expand
