Unprecedented Quassinoids with Promising Biological Activity from Harrisonia perforata.
Perforalactone A (1), a new 20S quassinoid with a unique cagelike 2,4-dioxaadamantane ring system and a migrated side chain, was isolated from the plant Harrisonia perforata together with two biosynthetically related new quassinoids. The structures o

Antifeedant activity of xanthohumol and supercritical carbon dioxide extract of spent hops against stored product pests.
Xanthohumol, a prenylated flavonoid from hops, and a supercritical carbon dioxide extract of spent hops were studied for their antifeedant activity against stored product insect pests: Sitophilus granarius L., Tribolium confusum Duv. and Trogoderma g

Synthesis, antifeedant activity against Coleoptera and 3D QSAR study of alpha-asarone derivatives.
For the first time, a set of 56 compounds representing structural derivatives of naturally occurring alpha-asarone as an antifeedants against stored product pests Sitophilus granarius L., Trogoderma granarium Ev., and Tribolium confusum Duv., were su

Antifeedant Activity of Ginkgo biloba Secondary Metabolites against Hyphantria cunea Larvae: Mechanisms and Applications.
Ginkgo biloba is a typical relic plant that rarely suffers from pest hazards. This study analyzed the pattern of G. biloba pest hazards in Beijing; tested the antifeedant activity of G. biloba extracts, including ginkgo flavonoids, ginkgolide, and bi

Synthesis and Antifeedant Activity of Racemic and Optically Active Hydroxy Lactones with the p-Menthane System.
Two racemic and two enantiomeric pairs of new δ-hydroxy-γ-lactones based on the p-menthane system were prepared from racemic and optically active cis- and trans-piperitols. The Johnson-Claisen rearrangement of the piperitols, epoxidation of the γδ-un

Identification and antifeedant activities of limonoids from Azadirachta indica.
Four new limonoids, azadiraindins A-D (1-4, resp.), together with seven known analogs, were isolated from the MeOH extract of Azadirachta indica. The structures of 1-4 were elucidated by NMR and MS spectroscopic analyses, and the relative configurati

Four new quassinoids from the roots of Eurycoma longifolia Jack.
Seven compounds were isolated from the roots of Eurycoma longifolia, and characterized by comprehensive analysis of 1D and 2D NMR experiments along with single crystal X-ray diffraction. Among them, four new quassinoids were identified and three of t

Antifeedant action ofZ-dihydromatricaria acid from soldier beetles (Chauliognathus spp.).
The acetylenic acid,Z-dihydromatricaria acid (DHMA), previously isolated from the defensive secretion ofChauliognathus lecontei, and now shown to occur also inC. pennsylvanicus, is a potent feeding deterrent to jumping spiders (Phidippus spp.). A sim

Mushroom chemical defense : Pungent sesquiterpenoid dialdehyde antifeedant to opossum.
A new bioassay employing a natural fungivore, the opossumDidelphis virginiana, is described. Using this bioasssay, eighteen species of fungi were tested for palatability. Five species of mushrooms, all of which taste pungent to humans, were found to

A general entry to antifeedant sesterterpenoids: total synthesis of (+)-norleucosceptroid A, (-)-norleucosceptroid B, and (-)-leucosceptroid K.
The first asymmetric total synthesis of the antifeedant terpenoids (+)-norleucosceptroid A, (-)-norleucosceptroid B, and (-)-leucosceptroid K has been accomplished. This highly concise synthetic route was guided by our efforts to develop a platform f
