Abstract
Abstract The essential oil composition of Amyris balsamifera was investigated by GC-MS. Major constituents were separated by fractional distillation and various chromatographic techniques, and identified by mass, 1 H and 13 C NMR spectroscopy and/or chemical reactions. The oil consisted of 17.5% sesquiterpene hydrocarbons and 82.5% oxygenated sesquiterpenes. Major compounds were β-sesquiphellandrene, elemol, 10- epi -γ-eudesmol, γ-eudesmol, valerianol, α-eudesmol, 7- epi -α-eudesmol and β-eudesmol. 7- epi -α-Eudesmol is reported for the first time as a natural product.

Abstract Guaiacwood oil is a common perfume ingredient used in modern compositions for its suave woody-rosy scent. This essential oil is a byproduct of the timber industry obtained by hydrodistillation of the heartwood of Bulnesia sarmientoi , a tree native from Latin America. Despite being widely used in perfumery, guaiacwood oil has been poorly described in the past. This study aims at giving an in-depth characterisation of its chemical composition as well as disclosing the odorant compounds r...

The search for new safer insecticides has increased in recent agriculture. Botanical compounds such as terpenoids and plant essential oils with insecticidal activity could represent important tools in pest management, and their risk assessment against non-target organisms is necessary since they may serve as a precursor for the synthesis of new insecticide active ingredients. For this study, the acute toxicity and sublethal effects of seven terpenoids and three essential oils with recognized ins...

Essential oils (EOs) from Eucalyptus globulus Labill. ssp. globulus and from Mediterranean autochthonous aromatic plants – Thymus mastichina L., Mentha pulegium L., Rosmarinus officinalis L., Calamintha nepeta (L.) Savi ssp. nepeta, Cistus ladanifer L., Foeniculum vulgare L., Dittrichia viscosa (L.) Greuter ssp. viscosa – were extracted by hydrodistillation and characterized by GC-FID and NMR spectroscopy. EOs were evaluated for antimicrobial properties against several bacterial strains, using d...

Tuberculosis is part of a group of infectious diseases that together cause 90% of deaths worldwide [1]. Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the causative agent of tuberculosis, infects approximately eight million new individuals per year and culminates in death every 10 seconds. Although the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared tuberculosis a global health emergency, its treatment lasts too long, infected patients have limited access to diagnosis, and multidrug-resistant strains of M. tuberculos...

Eudesmols are naturally occurring sesquiterpenoid alcohols that present cytotoxic effect to cancer cells. Herein, all eudesmol isomers displayed cytotoxicity to different tumour cell lines. a-Eudesmol showed IC50 values ranging from 5.38 1.10 to 10.60 1.33 lg/mL for B16-F10 and K562 cell lines, b-eudesmol showed IC50 values ranging from 16.51 1.21 to 24.57 2.75 lg/mL for B16-F10 and HepG2 cell lines, and c-eudesmol showed IC50 values ranging from 8.86 1.27 to 15.15 1.06 lg/mL for B16-F10 and K56...

Abstract Larvicidal activities of Amyris balsamifera , Daucus carota , and Pogostemon cablin essential oils were tested against Culex pipiens pallens . All three oils showed 100% larvicidal activity against C. pipiens pallens at 0.1 mg/mL. Among the tested oils, the larvicidal activity of D. carota oil was the strongest followed by P. cablin and A. balsamifera . Four active compounds such as β -eudesmol, elemol, patchoulol, and carotol were isolated from the three oils by open column chromatogra...

Root chemicals and DNA sequences were analyzed for Ligularia virgaurea collected in the northern Sichuan Province and adjacent areas of China. Thirty-eight samples were found to contain five chemotypes, two known and three new ones. From samples of the new chemotypes, 13 new compounds were isolated, including 3 sesquiterpene dimers and some rearranged eremophilanes. The DNA sequences suggested that the chemotype differentiation had a genetic origin. (C) 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
