A new coumaronochromone and a new alkanoyl-dihydrofuranoflavone glycoside from Eriosema robustum (Fabaceae)

Publication date: October 2018 Source:Phytochemistry Letters, Volume 27 Author(s): Maurice Ducret Awouafack, Chin Piow Wong, Pierre Tane, Hiroyuki Morita A new coumaronochromone, eriocoumaronochromone (1), and a new alkanoyl-dihydrofuranoflavone glycoside, robusflavone C (2), as well as seven known compounds, 6-prenylpinocembrin (3), desmoxyphyllin A (4), prutin (5), genistein (6), vitexin (7), kaempferol (8), and p-hydroxy benzoic acid (9), were obtained after phytochemical re-investigation of the EtOAc-soluble portion from the EtOH extract of the twigs of Eriosema robustum. The structures of the new compounds were elucidated by analyses of their spectroscopic data (1D- and 2D- NMR, and HR-ESIMS) and chemical conversion. 1 and 2 exhibited weak antioxidant activity with IC50 340.3 ± 0.1 and 524.6 ± 0.1 μM in 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) free radical assay, and possessed weak antimicrobial activity with MICs > 150 μg/mL against Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Escherichia coli, Candida albicans, and Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Possible mechanisms of the antimicrobial effects of polypeptide‑enriched Gastrodia elata Blume extracts. Mol Med Rep. 2019 Sep 25;: Authors: Kong F, Cai X, Zhai S, Wang R, Zheng X, Ma Y, Bi H, Wang D Abstract The present study aimed to evaluate the antimicrobial activity and the possible mechanisms of activity of polypeptide‑enriched Gastrodia elata extracts (GEP) against the gram‑negative bacteria Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, the gram‑positive bacterium Staphylococcus aureus and the fungus Candida albicans. The antimicrobial activity of GEP was first confirmed by determining th...

In this study, a green synthesis approach was used to create a composite hydrogel (CoHy) of RSF stabilized with CarboxymethylCellulose-Na (CMC-Na) and loaded with AgNPs. Their swelling ratios were up to 59 g/g when tested in different physiologically relevant fluids. Material characterizations by Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) with Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDS), and X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) confirmed the presence of AgNPs on the surface. Antimicrobial properties of the CoHy samples were evaluated using agar diffusion tests. The results showed distinct inhibition zones against major microorganisms found in...

ieczorek This work presents a synthesis method for new surfactants based on lactose. The compounds obtained belong to the homologous series of O-β-D-Galactopyranosyl-(1→4)-N-alkyl-(3-sulfopropyl)-D-glucosamine hydrochloride, containing 12 and 14 carbon atoms in the alkyl chain, and they may serve as an example of cationic surfactants. The newly synthesized compounds exhibit good surface properties, low value of CMC (Critical Micelle Concentration) and good wetting properties. These surfactants’ ability to produce foam is considerably higher than in the commercial surfactants. Moreover, antib...

In this study, Pimpinella anisum seeds were extracted under various conditions (solvent type, temperature, solvent/plant ratio and contact time). The potency of the resulted extracts towards biosynthesis of silver and gold nanoparticles was assessed. The most potent extract towards reduction of both Ag+ and Au3+ ions was obtained using 70% methanol at 60 °C, with a solvent/plant ratio of 10 mL/g and extraction time for 60 min. The prepared nanoparticles were structurally characterized by UV-visible, transmission electron microscope, dynamic light scattering and zeta potential analysis. Phenolics an...

SinghAbstractWe have synthesized 2,5-diformyl-1H-pyrrole bis(methan-1-yl-1-ylidene)dimalonohydrazone (DPBMD) and characterized by elemental analysis, FT-IR, UV–Vis, Mass, 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy. Theoretical calculations were performed by ab initio RHF and density functional theory (DFT)/B3LYP method, 6-31G(d,p) and 6-311++G(d,p) basis sets. The calculated scaled vibrational frequency values have been compared with experimental FT-IR spectrum. The calculated result shows excellent agreement between...

In this study, the ethanol extract and hexane fraction of Dalbergia ecastophyllum (L.) Taub. (Leguminosae) have been used to evaluate the antibacterial and antifungal activity and for modulating the resistance of antimicrobials against bacterial strains of Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Candida albicans and fungal strains of Candida krusei, Candida tropicalis. The antibacterial and modulatory activity was determined by microdilution. Inhibition of the growth of bacteria and fungi tested extract was ⩾1024. The activity was enhanced when aminoglycosides were associated with sub-inhibito...
