Antifungal constituents of the stem bark of Bridelia retusa.

Antifungal activity guided fractionation of solvent extracts of the stem bark of Bridelia retusa of the family Euphorbiaceae against Cladosporium cladosporioides, furnished new bisabolane sesquiterpenes, (E)-4-(1,5-dimethyl-3-oxo-1-hexenyl)benzoic acid, (E)-4-(1,5-dimethyl-3-oxo-1,4-hexadienyl) benzoic acid, (R)-4-(1,5-dimethyl-3-oxo-4-hexenyl)benzoic acid and (-)-isochaminic acid, together with the known (R)-4-(1,5-dimethyl-3-oxohexyl)benzoic acid (ar-todomatuic acid), 5-allyl-1,2,3-trimethoxybenzene (elemicin), (+)-sesamin and 4-isopropylbenzoic acid (cumic acid). All these compounds showed fungicidal activity on TLC bioautography method at very low concentrations except elemicin.[1]
