Chemical constituents with prenyl substitution from the stem and root of Daphne giraldii Nitsche. (Thymelaeaceae)
Publication date: December 2019Source: Biochemical Systematics and Ecology, Volume 87Author(s): Ying Liu, Qian Sun, Lingzhi Li, Shaojiang SongAbstractPhytochemical characterization of the stem and root bark of Daphne giraldii Nitsche. led to the isolation of eight flavones (1–8), six flavans (9–14) and six coumarins (15–20). The structures of these compounds were examined with spectroscopic methods, and also by comparing to previously reported spectroscopic data. Among them, ten compounds (1–3, 9 and 15–20) are reported for the first time for this species, and all compounds with prenyl substit...

Flavonoid dimers from the aerial parts of Conyza stricta
Publication date: December 2019Source: Biochemical Systematics and Ecology, Volume 87Author(s): Lamya H. Al-Wahaibi, Muneera S.M. Al-Saleem, Omar A. Basudan, Wael M. Abdel-MageedAbstractA new flavonoid dimer, strictatin (10), was identified from the aerial part of Conyza stricta, in addition to eleven known compounds. The structure of compound 10 was determined by spectral analyses, including 1D, 2D NMR and HR-ESI-MS experiments. All compounds were identified from Conyza stricta for the first time and flavonoid dimers were firstly reported from the family Asteraceae. The chemotaxonomic significance of the identified metabo...

Genetic resources of Tunisian Artemisia arborescens L. (Asteraceae), pattern of volatile metabolites concentration and bioactivity and implication for conservation
Publication date: December 2019Source: Biochemical Systematics and Ecology, Volume 87Author(s): Leila Riahi, Hnia Chograni, Ahmed Slaheddine Masmoudi, Ameur CherifAbstractArtemisia arborescens L. (Asteraceae) is an endemic and a valuable medicinal and ornamental species in the Mediterranean regions. Despite the interest given to A. arborescens L. as promising medicinal crop, this species is becoming threatened of extinction in Tunisia as a result of the fragmentation of its habitat and the absence of any specific measures for its conservation and valorisation. Based on the last considerations, extent information about thei...
