1. Sideroxylonal A, isolated from the benzene extract of the leaves of Eucalyptus grandis, is a highly potent repellent.
Nootkatone, a naturally occurring AMPK activator, can stimulate energy metabolism and prevents diet-induced obesity by activating AMPK. (+)-Nootkatone has antiallergic, anti-inflammatory, antiproliferative, and antiplatelet activities. Nootkatone is a strong repellent and toxicant to Formosan subterranean termites, the lowest effective concentration tested is 10 micrograms/g substrate. (+)-Nootkatone has potent inhibitory effect on collagen-, thrombin-, and AA-induced platelet aggregation, it also has a significant inhibitory effect on rat platelet aggregation ex vivo.
