The antimicrobial activity and chemistry of the African Combretaceae has been well studied in recent years. The present study aimed to investigate the phytochemistry and antimicrobial activity of lesser known members of this family viz. C. hereroense, C. apiculatum and C. collinum. Pulverized leaves of C. collinum and C. apiculatum, and the fruit of C. hereroense were extracted with organic solvents and subjected to preparative chromatography. Seventeen phenolic constituents including four… CONTINUE READING
