Abstract (PDF)
Graphical Abstract: For the first time the results of GC-MS analysis of Satureja subspicata L. oil of Moldovan origin are reported. The chemical profile includes forty-four constituents and consists mostly (97.86%) of phenolic monoterpenes, monoterpene hydrocarbons, bicyclic sesquiterpenes and their oxygenated derivatives. A substantial quantitative and qualitative chemical differentiation of S. subspicata oil of Moldovan origin and reported oil of Croatian origin were found. The essential oil of S. subspicata L. plants cultivated in Republic of Moldova belongs to the carvacrol chemotype.

Abstract (PDF)

DOI:
dx.doi.org/10.19261/cjm.2015.10(2).06

Graphical Abstract:
 The accumulated as production waste fat from Faraon quail breeds has been investigated for the first time by using GC-MS technique, preventively converting it via methanolysis to fatty acid methyl esters. The test results, regarding the content of unsaturated fatty acids having a favorable to human body cis-configuration (77.8%), confirm their nutritional value and the possibility of using this fat in cosmetic, pharmaceutical and food industries.

Abstract (PDF)

DOI:
dx.doi.org/10.19261/cjm.2015.10(2).07

Graphical Abstract:
 The synthesis of new nitrogen-containing drimane and homodrimane sesquiterpenoids in cycle B is reported. A comparative study of the microwave (MW) assisted synthesis of drimenone versus classical conditions has been done. The drimanic and homodrimanic oximes were prepared on the base of ketones derived from commercially available sclareolide. The drimanic amine was obtained by reduction of corresponding oxime with LiAlH4. The structure of novel compounds was confirmed using IR, 1H and 13C NMR analyses.

Graphical Abstract:
 The paper relates on the discovered bioactivity of the iridoid glycosides extract (IGE) from Linaria genistifolia (L.) Mill, namely its stimulating influence on the resistance of the winter wheat Odesschi 51 plant to the caused by the F. oxysporum and H. avenae pathogenic fungi root rot. 1H and 13C NMR characteristics of 5-O-allosylantirrinoside in Py-d5 are for the first time presented. Structures of two conformers of the IGE main component, 5-O-allosylantirrinoside in D2O and Py-d5 solutions are proposed, based on the experimental NMR evidence and molecular modeling studies.
