Phytochemical profiling was undertaken on the crude extracts of the bulbs, stems, and the fruits of Haemodorum brevisepalum, to determine the nature of the chemical constituents present. This represents the first study to investigate the fruits of a species of Haemodorum. In total, 13 new and 17 previously reported compounds were isolated and identified. The new compounds were of the phenylphenalenone-type class, with a representative of a novel structural form, named tentatively…

Phenylphenalenone-related compounds: chemotaxonomic markers of the haemodoraceae from Xiphidium caeruleum.

Phytochemical analysis of Xiphidium caeruleum resulted in the isolation and identification of a variety of phenylphenalenone-related compounds, which are used as the basis to elaborate biogeographic characteristics of this plant family.

Phytochemical Investigation of the Constituents Derived from the Australian Plant Macropidia fuliginosa.

A phytochemical study of the flowers and bulbs derived from the Australian plant Macropidia fuliginosa, involving hyphenated spectroscopic methodologies, resulted in the identification of 16 constituents representative of six different structural classes, with compound 8 found to be more potent against P. aeruginosa than ampicillin.

Phenylphenalenones from the Australian plant Haemodorum simplex.

The crude extract of both the bulbaceous and aerial components of the plant exhibited varying degrees of antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral activity, and only the bulbs displayed potent cytotoxic activity.

HPLC-NMR and HPLC-MS Profiling and Bioassay-Guided Identification of Secondary Metabolites from the Australian Plant Haemodorum spicatum.

Phytochemical dereplication on the bioactive crude CH2Cl2 extract of the bulbs of the Australian plant Haemodorum spicatum resulted in the identification of two new phenylphenalenones and two new chromenes, together with seven previously described compounds.

Structure-activity relationship in the interaction of substituted perinaphthenones with Mycosphaerella fijiensis.

A new compound, 4-methoxy-2-nitro-1H-phenalen-1-one (14), displayed significantly enhanced in vitro activity against M. fijiensis compared to other perinaphthenone derivatives, and was comparable to that of two commercial fungicides.
