Abstract
Abstract Chiral compounds have shown antimicrobial activity, enantioselectively. Leaf oil composition of Cinnamomum camphora was studied using GC-FID, SPME-GC-FID, enantio-GC and GC/MS techniques. Camphor exists in two chiral forms and contributes major percentage to C. camphora essential oil (68.4–81.2%). The results showed (1 R )-(+)-camphor as major enantiomer ( ee  > 99%). The biological potential of essential oil, (1 R )-(+)- and (1 S )-(−)-camphor was investigated against Choanephora cucurbitarum , a Withania wet rot pathogen. The activity was evaluated against fungal growth and morphological changes in the hyphae of C. cucurbitarum , after 18, 21 and 24 h of treatments. A significant growth inhibition in C. cucurbitarum was observed against (1 R )-(+)-camphor. Further, in comparison to (1 R )-(+)-camphor, C. camphora oil revealed better activity. Fungal growth inhibition by (1 R )-(+)-camphor and plant essential oil was due to cytoplasm coagulation and hyphal lysis of C. cucurbitarum . Moreover, C. camphora essential oil could be used in the preparation of strong fungistatic agent against C. cucurbitarum infection.

The essential oil from different parts of Zingiber roseum plants was extracted by hydrodistillation, and analyzed using enantio-GC, capillary-GC and GC-MS. Two chiral selectors, 6-tert-butyldimethylsilyl-2,3-diethyl-β-cyclodextrin (TBDE-β-CD), and 2,3,6-methyl-β-cyclodextrin (PM-β-CD) doped into 14% cyanopropylphenyl/ 86% dimethylpolysiloxane, and 35% diphenyl/ 65% dimethylpolysiloxane, respectively were compared in order to clarify the stereochemistry and enantioselectivity of terpenoids using ...

Abstract Raw materials (roots) of Rauvolfia serpentina were found associated with various storage moulds. During mycological screening, total 887 fungal isolates were recovered and among them Aspergillus flavus exhibited the highest relative density (35.74%). The essential oil (EO) of Ocimum sanctum was isolated through Clevenger's hydro-distillation apparatus and investigated against A. flavus LHPRS7, isolated from raw materials. The GC–MS analysis of EO showed 41 considerable peaks. Eugenol (6...

Withania somnifera (Ashwagandha) is native to India and commercially cultivated for the production of root withanolides that have anticarcinogenic properties. A disease appeared on plantings of W. somnifera during the 2010 monsoon at the CIMAP and in adjoining areas of northern India. Symptoms first appeared as water-soaked lesions on leaves and stems that progressed to a wet rot. Mature lesions harbored black fructifications of the suspect pathogen. Pathogen isolations were done by placing piec...

Abstract The chemical composition of essential oils isolated from aerial parts of native populations of Origanum vulgare L. from northwestern Himalaya was investigated by enantioselective gas chromatography (enantio-GC), capillary-gas chromatography (capillary-GC) and GC–MS. Seventy compounds, which accounted for 84.9–97% of the oil composition, have been identified. The oils were allotted to two main groups; the first group had a high percentage of components belonging to the thymol/carvacrol b...

Summary Six essential oils viz. Eucalyptus citriodora, Cymbopogon citratus, Callistemon lanceolatus, Cinnamomum camphora, Citrus limon, Tagetes petula, as well as two standard antibiotics, miconazole and clotrimazole, were tested in vitro for their anticandidial activity. All these essential oils exhibited higher activity than the two synthetic antibiotics. Highest zone of inhibition was recorded in E. citriodora (8.50 mm μl−1) followed by C. lanceolatus (5.63 mm μl−1) establishing their promisi...

In the search for bioactive compounds, direct bioautography of plant lipophilic leaf extracts was used in antifungal screening. Thus, lipophilic (dichloromethane) leaf extract of medicinal plants used by Himalayan people were investigated. Alternaria alternata and Curvularia lunata were used as test organism in bioautography. The results, evaluated by the diameter of the inhibition zone of fungal growth, indicate that five plant species, among the 12 investigated, showed antifungal activity. CHC...

A blight (wet rot) of petunia (Petunia ×hybrida Hort. Vilm.-Andr.) was observed in a wholesale propagation nursery in Baton Rouge, LA in September 2002. The grower reported that plants wilted and then completely rotted. The disease occurred during a period of hot, humid, and cloudy weather. Approximately 100 flats of flowering-age plants of cvs. Rose and White Madness were destroyed. No fungal sporulation was noticed on dead plants, but occasional strands of white mycelium were observed. The gro...

ABSTRACTCinnamon has been reported to have significant benefits for human health, particularly as an anti-inflammatory, antitumor, anticancer, antidiabetic, and anti-hypertriglyceridemia agent, mainly due to its phytochemical constituents such as phenolic and volatile compounds. The phytochemicals in cinnamon can be extracted from different parts of plant by distillation and by solvent extraction. The use of cinnamon in food and its ability to prevent oxidation and inhibit microbial growth are c...
