Ruta chalepensis L. Essential Oil: Chemical Composition and Phytotoxic Activity

Abstract The aim of this work is to study the use of Ruta chalepensis essential oil as a bioactive substance in order to propose ways of valuation and rational exploitation of the plant. In this

Chemical composition and antioxidant potential of Ruta montana L. essential oil from Algeria.

The results obtained using the DPPH test show that R. montana essential oil possesses antiradical activity in a concentration-dependent manner.

Volatile Constituents of the Essential Oil of Ruta chalepensis L. subsp. Angustifolia (Pers.) P. Cout.

A comparison with oils from Ruta species from different countries reported in literature shows a similarity in main compound with most species of these plants.

Composition of essential oil in genetically transformed roots of Ruta graveolens

The long-term maintenance in the in vitro cultured rue roots of a capability for the synthesis of essential oil major components characteristic of intact plants allows their usage for studying the physiological activity of these volatile compounds and their putative role in the plant root interaction in biocenoses.

Essential Oils from Leaves of Micropropagated Ruta graveolens

The essential oils from fieldgrown plants of Ruta graveolens showed that the same major components were present without significant compositional variations, and the most abundant constituents of the oils were 2-undecanone and 2-nonanone.

Chemical Composition and Biological Activities of Essential Oils of Pinus patula

The preliminary results showed that P. patula essential oil could be valorized for the control of weeds and fungal plant diseases.

Chemical composition, antibacterial and antifungal activities of Ruta graveolens L. volatile oils

Abstract The Ruta graveolens L. (Rutaceae) plant is used medicinally as a homeopathic remedy in various areas of the world. In this study, volatile oils were extracted from the areal parts of the

Allelopathic effect of Schinus molle essential oils on wheat germination

Both essential oils showed a dose-dependent allelopathic activity on wheat germination and radicle elongation with leaf oil being the more phytotoxic with the major constituents being limonene and β-phellendrene.



Toxic terpenes from Artemisia californica

The toxicity of terpenes from Artemisia califORNica, and their distribution in the soil in thickets of A. californica are reported, with camphor being most toxic, followed by 1,8-cineole.

Allelopathy: Basic and Applied Aspects

A discipline called allelopathy, with case studies in natural and managed ecosystems, and the allelopathic potential of aromatic shrubs in phryganic (East Mediterranean) ecosystems.

The allelopathic potential of aromatic shrubs in phryganic (east Mediterranean) ecosystems

One of the characteristic types of mediterranean ecosystems is phrygana, occurring not only around the Mediterranean Basin, but in all other regions of the Earth with a mediterranean-type climate

Introduction to ecological biochemistry

Hormonal interactions between plants and animals illustrate how sophisticated and complex biochemical interrelationships can become, and a chapter on higher-plant-higher-plant interactions makes it clear that secondary compounds of plants may be weapons of offence as well as defence.

Some Quantitative Aspects of the Phytotoxicity of Monoterpenes

The phytotoxic monoterpenes, camphor, pulegone, and borneol, exhibit a marked synergistic action when used in combination. On a molar basis, these phytotoxic concentrations are enhanced from 40 to
