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.

Abstract The study deals with evaluation of antifungal and antiaflatoxigenic Caesulia axillaris Roxb. essential oil (EO) against herbal raw materials deteriorating fungi and its free radical scavenging activity. During mycoflora analysis these herbal raw materials were found to be severely contaminated by different fungi and aflatoxins. A total of nine different fungal species were isolated from three herbal raw materials. Aspergillus flavus LHPtc was recorded as the highest aflatoxin B1 produci...

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...

Periwinkle or vinca (Catharanthus roseus (L.) G. Don) is widely planted as a flowering annual in home and business landscapes in hardiness zones 9 and 10 and the southernmost portions of zone 8. Many improved selections, such as those in the Pacifica, Tropicana, and Cooler cultivar series, are currently available. Dark gray flower spots that often coalesced and led to blighting of flowers under conditions of high humidity, were observed on all of 18 periwinkle cultivars in a variety trial at Bur...

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...

ABSTRACT The solubility in water of essential oil constituents is directly related to their ability to penetrate the cell walls of a bacterium or fungus. The antimicrobial activity of essential oils is due to their solubility in the phospholipid bilayer of cell membranes. Terpenoids which are characterized by their lability have been found to interfere with the enzymatic reactions of energy metabolism.

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 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...

Abstract Enantioselective GC–FID and enantioselective GC–MS have been utilized under temperature gradient mode with differently substituted heptakis- and octakis-cyclodextrins to achieve the resolution of chiral terpenoids in the essential oil of indigenously grown cultivars of Mentha spicata . Modified cyclodextrins were derivatized in GC column for the separation of chiral terpenoids. A 2,3-diethyl-6- tert -butyldimethylsilyl-β-cyclodextrin doped into 14% cyanopropylphenyl/86%dimethylpolysilox...

The camphor tree, Cinnamomum camphora (L.) J. Presl, is an arbor species in southern part of China. Many linguistic groups cultivate it for timber, medicine, pesticide, ornamental and other purposes. However, less ethnobotanical information about this important species had been reported in any international journal. This paper focused on the conservation and traditional uses of camphor tree, especially its cultural significance among different ethnic groups. The approaches including literature s...

BACKGROUND Tetranychus cinnabarinus (Boisduval) is one of the most important, highly polyphagous pests of a wide range of field and greenhouse crops throughout the world. The control of this mite is still based primarily on the use of synthetic chemical pesticides. In this study, we screened eight plant extracts from China and evaluated the natural compounds showing acaricidal properties from the plant extract, considering their potential use as an alternative to synthetic pesticides. RESULTS In...

Seiridium cardinale, the main fungal pathogen responsible for cypress bark canker, is the largest threat to cypresses worldwide. The terpene response of canker-resistant clones of Italian cypress, Cupressus sempervirens, to two differently aggressive isolates of S. cardinale was studied. Phloem terpene concentrations, foliar terpene concentrations, as well as foliar terpene emission rates were analyzed 1, 10, 30, and 90 days after artificial inoculation with fungal isolates. The phloem surroundi...

Microencapsulation is a process of building a functional barrier between the core and wall material to avoid chemical and physical reactions and to maintain the biological, functional, and physicochemical properties of core materials. Microencapsulation of marine, vegetable, and essential oils has been conducted and commercialized by employing different methods including emulsification, spray-drying, coaxial electrospray system, freeze-drying, coacervation, in situ polymerization, melt-extrusion...

Abstract The objective of this study was the characterization and valorization of the essential oil from a domesticated Artemisia absinthium population (Teruel, Spain), and its comparison with another one (Sierra Nevada, Spain) undergoing the domestication process. These populations are being experimentally cultivated in the same field since 2008. We studied their biomass and essential oil production (Clevenger hydrodistillation, HD and semi-industrial vapor-pressure, VP). The domesticated popul...

The canker-causing fungus Seiridium cardinale is the major threat to Cupressus sempervirens worldwide. We investigated the production of terpenes by canker-resistant and susceptible cypresses inoculated with S. cardinale, the effect of these terpenes on fungal growth, and the defensive biotransformation of the terpenes conducted by the fungus. All infected trees produced de novo terpenes and strongly induced terpenic responses, but the responses were stronger in the canker-resistant than the sus...
