Sukari, Mohd Aspollah and Md Saad, Suhaila and Lajis, Md Nordin and Rahmani, Mawardi and Muse, Radzali and Yusuf, Umi Kalsum and Riyanto, Sugeng (2007) Chemical constituents and bioactivity of Curcuma aeruginosa Roxb. Natural Product Sciences, 13 (3). pp. 175-179. ISSN 1226-3907


Phytochemical study on the rhizomes of Curcuma aeruginosa has yielded three sesquiterpenes, which were identified as zedoarol (1), curcumenol (2) and isocurcumenol (3). The structures of the compounds were determined by Infrared Spectroscopy (IR), Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (1D and 2D NMR) and Mass Spectroscopy (MS). The crude extracts and pure compounds obtained were tested against pathogenic microbes and cancer cell lines.
