brasiliensis apolar extracts revealed the presence of triterpenes and sesquiterpenes, such as hidroxigermacreno, lupeol, [beta]-amyrin acetate, spathulenol, cadinene, cadinol, oplopanona acetate, and [alpha]-acetoxy-[beta]-amyrin (20).
Moreover, manool, E-nerolidol, germacrene D, benzyl benzoate, palmitic acid, methyl palmitate d- Cadinene and anthranilic acid, were identified as the major components.
The seeds and fruits of the plant contain d-[alpha]-pinene, camphene, pectins, glycolic acid, malic acid, formic acid, acetic acid, cyclohexitol, terpene, proteins, fermentable sugars, wax, gum, ascorbic acid, dihydrojunene, [beta]-pinene, hydrocarbon-junene, cadinene, juniper, and camphor [29].
New Alloaromadendrane, Cadinene and Cyclocopacamphane Type Sesquiterpene Derivatives and Bibenzyls from Dendrobium nobile.
Isoborneol, borneol and cadinene demonstrated antiseptic properties, combined with the ability of juniper oil to stimulate kidney activity contributes to its use as a mild diuretic and as a hypotensive agent (Brandies 1996, Jean Valnet 1982, and Marcel 1990).
The sesquiterpenes of Rosiflorae are sparsely distributed in five families and they are represented mainly by caryophyllene, humulene, eudesmene, cadinene and germacrene.
And some sesquiterpenoids were also isolated from genus Kadsura, included farnesane, bisabolane, germacrane, elemane, humulane, cadinene, copaene, cubebene, muurolene and so on (Li and Luo, 2002).
glabratus, but that several other sesquiterpenes may also be involved in host location, including a-humulene, cadinene, p-caryophyllene, and calamenene.
1G): a-copaene (peak 6), b-caryophyllene (peak 8), a-humulene (synonymous with b-caryophyllene; peak 9; this chemical was identified in avocado and silkbay but not clearly confirmed in other samples due to the low amount emitted, despite a similar RI) and cadinene (peak 10; analysis could not discern enantiomeric configuration).
Sesquiterpenes like bisabolene, zingiberene, cadinene, caryophyllene, catyophyllene oxide, humulene, germacrene-D and elemene were also present in the volatile oil.
