Abstract
Abstract Leumelaleucols A-L (1-12), twelve new 5-methoxy-4-methyl-benzyl phloroglucinol-terpenoid hybrids were isolated from the fruits of Melaleuca leucadendron L. The structures were elucidated by analyses of spectral data, and the absolute configurations were determined by the circular dichroism (CD) exciton chirality method. The neuroprotective effects of the isolated compounds were assessed.

Abstract Melaleucadines A and B ( 1 and 2 ), two rare benzylic phloroglucinol-terpene hybrids (meroterpenoids), have been isolated and identified from the branches and leaves of the Australian “tea tree” Melaleuca leucadendron L. Their structures including absolute configurations were determined by 1D/2D NMR, HR-MS, and the CD exciton chirality method. Compound 1 was a hybrid of a benzylic phloroglucinol and rearranged β-pinene via a rare 2,3,4,5-tetrahydrooxepine ring, and 2 was the adduct of a...

Abstract Thirteen undescribed dimeric guaianes were isolated from the leaves of Xylopia vielana Pierre. Their structures were elucidated by NMR spectroscopy and mass spectrometry, and the absolute configurations of vielanins G-Q were determined by a combination of the circular dichroism (CD) exciton chirality method, chemical conversion, and electronic CD (ECD) spectroscopy analysis. Vielaninors A and B are the first examples of trinor-guaiane-dimers. Multidrug resistance reversal activity assay...

Three new syncarpic acid-conjugated sesquiterpenoids, tomentodiones E–G (1–3), and six new syncarpic acid-conjugated monoterpenoids, tomentodiones H–M (4–9), were isolated from the leaves of Rhodomyrtus tomentosa. Compounds 1–3 represent the first examples of β-calacorene-based meroterpenoids. Their structures and absolute configurations were determined by a combination of NMR and ECD spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction analysis. On the basis of ECD data analysis for isolated and synthesized comp...

Abstract Callistiviminenes A-O, fifteen adducts of β-triketone with sesqui- or monoterpene, along with a known compound, were isolated from the fruits of Callistemon viminalis . Callistiviminenes A and B are β-triketone-coupled (−)-bicyclosequiphellandrene contained an oxaspiro[5.5]undecene unit, and callistiviminenes C-E are rare adducts of β-triketone and bicyclogermacrene. Their structures and absolute configurations were elucidated by spectroscopic and computational methods, as well as by si...

Ten new polyprenylated tetraoxygenated xanthones, monogxanthones A–J (1–10), together with eight known analogues (4b, 11–17) were identified from the roots of Hypericum monogynum. The structures of these new polyprenylated xanthones (1–10), a class of compounds rarely found in plants of the genus Hypericum, were elucidated by the interpretation of their HRESIMS, 1D and 2D NMR, and electronic circular dichroism data. Compounds 1 and 2 exhibited neuroprotective effects against corticosterone (Cort...

Rhodomyrtials A and B (1 and 2), two unprecedented triketone-sesquiterpene-triketone adducts, along with five biogenetically related intermediates, rhodomentone A (3) and tomentodiones A–D (4–7), were isolated from the leaves of Rhodomyrtus tomentosa. Their structures and absolute configurations were determined by a combination of NMR spectroscopy, chemical conversion, and X-ray diffraction analysis. Compounds 1 and 2 were biomimetically synthesized via 5 and 4, respectively, rather than 3, reve...

Abstract The essential oils of leaves, twigs and flowers of Melaleuca leucadendra L. grown in foothills of northern India were analyzed using GC–FID, GC–MS, and 1H and 13C NMR. Thirty-seven constituents were identified constituting 94.28–98.84% of the total essential oil compositions. The essential oils were composed of mainly oxygenated sesquiterpenes (81.23–93.50%), followed by sesquiterpene hydrocarbons (1.84–11.41%). The main constituent of essential oils was (E)-nerolidol (76.58–90.85%) whi...

To develop novel neuroprotective agents, a library of novel arylalkenylpropargylamines was synthesized and tested for inhibitory activities against monoamine oxidases. From this, a number of highly potent and selective monoamine oxidase B inhibitors were identified. Selected compounds were also tested for neuroprotection in in vitro studies with PC-12 cells treated with 6-OHDA and rotenone, respectively. It was observed that some of the compounds tested yielded a marked increase in survival in P...

(+)-Bicyclogermacrene is a strained bicyclic and common sesquiterpene found in several essential oils. A short and good yielding synthesis of bicyclogermacrene proceeding in seven steps is reported. This terpene is used as key platform intermediate for a biomimetic access to several aromadendrene sesquiterpenoids, such as ledene, viridiflorol, palestrol, and spathulenol. Furthermore, bicyclogermacrene is shown to be the terpene component in the synthesis of the meroterpenoids psiguadial A, C, an...

The first monoterpene-based meroterpenoid (1) and two novel sesquiterpene-based ones (2 and 3) with unprecedented skeletons were isolated from the leaves of Psidium guajava. Their structures with absolute configuration were elucidated by extensive spectroscopic studies. A plausible biosynthetic pathway for all meroterpenoids from the title plant is also proposed. Compounds 2 and 3 showed significant cytotoxicity toward HepG2 and HepG2/ADM cells.

The essential oils from cajuput leaves (Melaleuca leucadendron) have been well-known and applied, especially in healthcare management. However, the utilization of the leaves solid waste has not been explored and reported in detail. In this review, we elaborate on the cajuput leaves starting from the plant description and leaf morphology, chemical composition, biological activities, wood decomposing organism, and an in silico prediction upon its molecular mechanism. Based on the in silico predict...

Three new β-triketone flavanone hybrids, cajuputones A-C were obtained from Melaleuca cajuputi (the Australian 'tea tree'). The structures of cajuputones A-C were elucidated by 1D/2D NMR spectroscopy and HR-ESI-MS analyses; and their absolute configurations were established by electric circular dichroism (ECD) calculations using TDDFT method. Structurally, cajuputones A-C feature a rare 6/6/6/6 oxatetracyclic ring system fused between an acylphloroglucinol-derived β-triketone and a pinocembrin o...
