      Tanshinones are abietane-type norditerpenoid quinone natural products that are the bioactive components of the Chinese medicinal herb Salvia miltiorrhiza Bunge. The initial results from a functional genomics-based investigation of tanshinone biosynthesis, specifically the functional identification of the relevant diterpene synthases from S. miltiorrhiza, are :// Plant constituents may be water soluble, soluble only in alcohol, or have extractability somewhere in between. For instance, alkaloids are typically soluble in 45% alcohol, but hydrastine, an alkaloid found in Hydrastis canadensis (goldenseal) root (Fig. ), may require a 70+% alcohol menstruum for full extraction. On the other hand /hydrastine.

      The quantitative compositions of the major constitutive diterpenoids in the rhytidome and secondary phloem of the branch bark of Kuril larch (Larix gmelinii var. japonica) were investigated. The eight major diterpenoids were isolated from a diethyl ether extract of the branch bark of L. gmelinii var. japonica and identified as epimanool (1), larixol (2), larixyl acetate (3), epitorulosyl In ongoing investigations into colours in Nature, the chemical constituents from the flowers of Acacia pycnantha and Jacaranda mimosifolia grown in Australia are ://

The chemical constituents of forest tree foliage have been routinely determined for diagnostic and nutrient assessment purposes for many years. There is very little information, on the chemical composition of wood and bark (the major products from forests).

A detailed knowledge of the nature The nature of the chemical constituents of grand fir bark (Abies grandis Lindl) The diterpenoid 21 was isolated from the bark of the western yew, Taxus brevifolia Nutt, in the late s by Monroe Wall and Mansukh Wani as part of a systematic search for anticancer compounds from plant sources, and its structure was published in 46 Compound 21 was named taxol by Wall and Wani, but the name Taxol was later trademarked Among other bark extracts from conifers (especially pine and fir), spruce bark extracts are used in traditional medicine to prevent and treat colds, stomach pains, indigestion, and vascular Abstract.
