The chemical study of Villasenoria orcuttii, the only species of the genus Villasenoria, afforded three acyclic diterpenes, two of them described for the first time. Two pyrrolizidine alkaloids, florosenine and floridanine, among other known compounds were also isolated. The absolute configuration of floridanine was determined by X-ray analysis using anomalous dispersion with Cu Kαradiation, and its1 H and13 C nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) data were corrected.

A novel alkaloid isolated from Crotalaria paulina and identified by NMR and DFT calculations
Abstract Pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs) are secondary metabolites found in Crotalaria genus and are known to have several biological activities. A novel macrocycle bislactone alkaloid, coined
Design, synthesis and antifungal activity of pterolactam-inspired amide Mannich bases.
N,N'-aminals derivated from Pterolactam proved to be good candidates for the development of biosourced fungicides, with compound 3o being the most broader-spectrum agent, active against five strains and devoted of any cytotoxicity.
