Constituents of Caryopteris incana and their antibacterial activity.J Nat Med. 2014 Jan; 68(1):231-5.JN
Two new compounds named caryocanolide (1), and caryocanoside A (2), together with nine known compounds (3-11) were isolated from the whole plant of Caryopteris incana. These structures were determined mainly on the basis of 2D nuclear magnetic resonance and high resolution fast atom bombardment mass spectroscopy data. Furthermore, the isolated compounds (1, 2, 4-11) were tested for their antibacterial activity. Compound 1 exhibited moderate antimicrobial activity against Bacillus subtilis with a minimum inhibitory concentration value of 35.7 μM.
