1.New Claims for Wild Carrot (Daucus carota subsp. carota) Essential Oil.
Alves-Silva JM1, Zuzarte M2, Gonçalves MJ3, Cavaleiro C3, Cruz MT3, Cardoso SM4, Salgueiro L3. Evid Based Complement Alternat Med. 2016;2016:9045196. doi: 10.1155/2016/9045196. Epub 2016 Feb 14.
The essential oil of Daucus carota subsp. carota from Portugal, with high amounts of geranyl acetate (29.0%), α-pinene (27.2%), and 11αH-himachal-4-en-1β-ol (9.2%), was assessed for its biological potential. The antimicrobial activity was evaluated against several Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, yeasts, dermatophytes, and Aspergillus strains. The minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) and minimal lethal concentration (MLC) were evaluated showing a significant activity towards Gram-positive bacteria (MIC = 0.32-0.64 μL/mL), Cryptococcus neoformans (0.16 μL/mL), and dermatophytes (0.32-0.64 μL/mL). The inhibition of the germ tube formation and the effect of the oil on Candida albicans biofilms were also unveiled. The oil inhibited more than 50% of filamentation at concentrations as low as 0.04 μL/mL (MIC/128) and decreased both biofilm mass and cell viability. The antioxidant capacity of the oil, as assessed by two in chemico methods, was not relevant.
2.Total Synthesis of Oridamycins A and B.
Trotta AH1. Org Lett. 2015 Jul 2;17(13):3358-61. doi: 10.1021/acs.orglett.5b01629. Epub 2015 Jun 12.
The total synthesis of both oridamycin A and oridamycin B was accomplished starting from a common synthetic intermediate readily prepared from geranyl acetate. The sequence utilizes an oxidative radical cyclization to construct the trans-decalin ring system, setting three of four contiguous stereocenters in one operation. The carbazole nucleus was forged through a one-pot process entailing acid-promoted dehydration followed by 6π-electrocyclization/aromatization.
3.Antifungal and Herbicidal Effects of Fruit Essential Oils of Four Myrtus communis Genotypes.
Kordali S1, Usanmaz A2, Cakir A3, Komaki A1, Ercisli S4. Chem Biodivers. 2016 Jan;13(1):77-84. doi: 10.1002/cbdv.201500018.
The chemical composition of the essential oils isolated by hydrodistillation from the fruits of four selected Myrtus communis L. genotypes from Turkey was characterized by GC-FID and GC/MS analyses. 1,8-Cineole (29.20-31.40%), linalool (15.67-19.13%), α-terpineol (8.40-18.43%), α-pinene (6.04-20.71%), and geranyl acetate (3.98-7.54%) were found to be the major constituents of the fruit essential oils of all M. communis genotypes investigated. The oils were characterized by high amounts of oxygenated monoterpenes, representing 73.02-83.83% of the total oil compositions. The results of the fungal growth inhibition assays showed that the oils inhibited the growth of 19 phytopathogenic fungi. However, their antifungal activity was generally lower than that of the commercial pesticide benomyl. The herbicidal effects of the oils on the seed germination and seedling growth of Amaranthus retroflexus L., Chenopodium album L., Cirsium arvense (L.) Scop.
4.GC-FID/MS Profiling of Supercritical CO2 Extracts of Peels from Citrus aurantium, C. sinensis cv. Washington navel, C. sinensis cv. Tarocco and C. sinensis cv. Doppio Sanguigno from Dubrovnik Area (Croatia).
Jerković I, Drulžić J, Marijanović Z, Gugić M, Jokić S, Roje M. Nat Prod Commun. 2015 Jul;10(7):1315-8.
The peels of Citrus aurantium L. and Citrus sinensis Osbeck cultivars from the Dubrovnik region (south Croatia) were extracted by supercritical CO2 at 40 degrees C and 10 MPa at 1.76 kg/h to obtain enriched extracts in comparison with simple pressing of the peels. The extracts were analyzed in detail by gas chromatography and mass spectrometry (GC-FID/MS). Relevant similarities among the peel oil compositions of C. aurantium and C. sinensis cultivars were found with limonene predominance (up to 54.3%). The principal oxygenated monoterpenes were linalool (3.0%-5.9%), α-terpineol (0.7%-2.4%), linalyl acetate (0.0%-5.0%), geranyl acetate (0.0%-0.4%), (Z)-citral (0.0%-1.8%) and (E)-citral (0.0%-1.9%). Several sesquiterpenes were found with minor percentages. Coumarin derivatives were identified in all the samples among the relevant compounds. Isogeijerin dominated in the peels of C. sinensis cv. Tarocco (15.3%) and C. aurantium (11.2%). Scoparone ranged from 0.
