Scholarcy highlights

  • reported investigation into the phytochemical constituents of Commiphora pedunculata led to the isolation of two flavonoids
  • The structures of these compounds were characterised by comparing their spectral data including 1D
  • 2D NMR with those reported in the literature
  • The MIC value was as low as 6.25 μg
  • This is the first report of the isolation of these compounds
  • We would like to thank Mr Dilip Jagjivan, of the school of chemistry and physics, University of KwaZulu-Natal Westville campus, Durban, South Africa, for helping to run the 1D and 2D NMR and Mallam Mika'ilu of CHELTECH Zaria for his technical assistance in the antimicrobial assay
