Lippia alba (Mill.) N.E. Brown (Verbenaceae) is widely used in different regions of Central and South America as a tranquilizer. The plant's anxiolytic properties, however, merit investigation. The present study evaluated the effects of repeated daily (14 days) intraperitoneal (ip)...

The synthesis of hydroxyelemane 5 from (R)-carvone and its utilization as a common synthetic scaffold to produce structurally diverse germacrane and guaiane sesquiterpenes are described. A highly enantio- and stereoselective biomimetic tandem oxy-Cope/ene rearrangement was used as the key reaction...

Response surface methodology was applied in optimizing the asymmetric bioreduction of (4S)-(+)-carvone to dihydrocarvone (with low incidence of unsought side reactions) by using whole-cells of Cryptococcus gastricus. A factorial design (2(5)) including five independent variables was performed: X(1)=incubation time; X(2)=pH;...
