Compounds Topics Title Date
Ocimene anti-viral in vitro Phytochemical analysis and in vitro anti-viral activities of the essential oils of seven Lebanon species. Mar 2008
Ingestion Method: L. nobilis oil
L. nobilis oil exerted an interesting activity against SARS-CoV with an IC(50) value of 120 microg/ml and a selectivity index (SI) of 4.16
Ocimene anti-fungal in vitro Biological Activities and Composition of Ferulago carduchorum Essential Oil. July 2014
Ingestion Method: essential oil of F. carduchorum
The essential oil of F. carduchorum collected from west of Iran had anti-Candida, larvicidal and cytotoxicity effects and should be further investigated in others in vitro and in vivo experimental models.
Ocimene anti-oxidant in vitro Seasonal variation of volatile oil composition and antioxidant property of aerial parts of Syzygium paniculatum Gaertn. grown in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. Aug 2018
Ingestion Method: Syzygium paniculatum Gaertn oil
The bioavailability of citronellol, thymol, beta--ocimene and linoleic acid, used as bactericidal, fungicidal and antioxidant agents in cosmetics and perfumery, suggests S. paniculatum potential as a natural food flavouring and source of antibiotics in this era of emerging multi-drug-resistant pathogens.
Ocimene,Phellandrene anti-fungal in vitro via experiment Chemical composition and antifungal activity of essential oils from Senecio nutans, Senecio viridis, Tagetes terniflora and Aloysia gratissima against toxigenic Aspergillus and Fusarium species. Nov 2018
The oils showed moderate antifungal activity (1.2 mg/mL > MIC >0.6 mg/mL) on the Fusarium species and a weak effect on Aspergillus species. The antifungal activity was associated on F. verticillioides to the high content of cis-tagetone, trans-tagetone, cis-beta--ocimene, cis-ocimenone, trans-ocimenone and on F. graminearum due to the total content of oxygenated sesquiterpenes
