Thymol, benzofuranoid, and phenylpropanoid derivatives: anti-inflammatory constituents from Eupatorium cannabinum.

TLDR
Five new compounds, 9-O-angeloyl-8,10-dehydrothymol, and 1-hydroxy-4-methylphenyl)propan-1,2-dione, have been isolated from the aerial part of Eupatorium cannabinum subsp.

Dibenzofuran, 4-Chromanone, Acetophenone, and Dithiecine Derivatives: Cytotoxic Constituents from Eupatorium fortunei

TLDR
Five new compounds have been isolated from the aerial part of Eupatorium fortunei and it is confirmed that compound 1 markedly induced apoptosis of A549 and MCF-7 cells through mitochondrial- and caspase-3-dependent pathways.

Systematic evaluation of thymol derivatives possessing stereogenic or prostereogenic centers

Thymol (2-isopropyl-5-methylphenol) is an aromatic molecule typically distributed in the genera Thymus and Origanum, which possesses both pharmacological and industrial relevance. This review

Structure, absolute configuration, and antidiarrheal activity of a thymol derivative from Ageratina cylindrica.

TLDR
Compound 1 of Ageratina cylindrica showed weak antiprotozoal activity against Entamoeba histolytica and Giardia lamblia trophozoites and a high inhibitory effect on hyperpropulsive movement of the small intestine in rats.

The Sesquiterpenes β-Caryophyllene and Caryophyllene Oxide Isolated from Senecio salignus Act as Phytogrowth and Photosynthesis Inhibitors

TLDR
It was found that 1 was the most active biomass inhibitor and 1 has a major effect at 72 h after treatment on leaves of P. ixocarpa plants by inhibiting photosystem II (PS II) transforming active reaction centers to “heat sinks” or the formation of silent reaction centers unable to reduce QA.

Antinociceptive effect of extracts and compounds from Hofmeisteria schaffneri.

Spasmolytic Action of Preparations and Compounds from Hofmeisteria schaffneri

TLDR
According to the results, compound 2 can be used as a marker for the quality control procedures of the crude drug of H. schaffneri.

Configurational Variation of a Natural Compound within Its Source Species. The Unprecedented Case of Areolal in Piptothrix areolare.

TLDR
The absolute configuration of (-)-(8S)-areolal followed from vibrational circular dichroism data of an enantiomerically enriched sample, while single-crystal X-ray diffraction and supramolecular analyses revealed interactions that diminish the crystal entropy in rac-1.

Physiological and Biochemical Responses of Lettuce to Thymol, as Allelochemical

Nowadays, allelopathic investigations have focused to identify action mechanisms of this compounds on target organisms in natural habitats. It may tend to introduce new natural herbicides and

Chemistry and Biology of Selected Mexican Medicinal Plants.

TLDR
The chapter shows that there is need to conduct additional clinical studies on herbal drugs, in particular because the longstanding traditional evidence for their safety is not always sufficient to assure their rational use.

Effects of Monoterpenoids, Acting Alone or in Pairs, on Seed Germination and Subsequent Seedling Growth

TLDR
The potential allelopathic activity of 47 monoterpe- noids of different chemical groups is compared, by estimating their effect on seed germination and subsequent growth of Lactuca sativa seedlings, and a model was used to investigate whether compounds acted independently when applied in pairs.
