Sullivantosides A-F: Pregnane glycosides from Asclepias sullivantii L.
Phytochemical investigation of the above-ground biomass of Asclepias sullivantii L. (Asclepiadaceae) afforded six new pregnane glycosides, named sullivantosides A-F (1–6). The structures of 1–6 were elucidated through a ...
Antibacterial biocomposite materials based on essential oils embedded in sol–gel hybrid silica matrices
For the design of antibacterial materials comprising hybrid silica-containing plant oils capable of performing a controlled release of essential oil components, tests of lemongrass, citronella, basil, rosemary, eucalyptus, ...
Relative Selectivity of Plant Cardenolides for Na+/K+ -ATPases From the Monarch Butterfly and Non-resistant Insects
A major prediction of coevolutionary theory is that plants may target particular herbivores with secondary compounds that are selectively defensive. The highly specialized monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) copes well ...
Evaluation of mucilages isolated from seeds of Hyptis suaveolens, Salvia hispanica and Linum usitatissimum as pharmaceutical excipients in solid dose and liquid formulations
In this work, the performance of mucilages obtained from the seeds of Hyptis suaveolens, Linum usitatissimum and salvia hispanica were evaluated for their potential use as stabilizers in liquid formulations and as binders ...
