Ethnopharmacological Evaluation of Radal (leaves of Lomatia hirsuta) through Metabolite Profiling and Isolation of 2-Methoxyjuglone.
Published: February 26, 2007
To evaluate the efficacy of the traditionally used herbal remedy Radal a metabolite profile of the original plant material was established. The EtOAc extract of the leaves and found to be active against the pathogenic fungus Candida albicans (MIC = 8 µg/ml). Cinnamic acid (2) and vanillic acid (5) were identified as the major constituents in the tea by GC-MS along with other phenolic derivatives.
