- ... In the recent years, discovery, identification, and development of biologically active compounds have gained a lot of importance. Naphthalenes are a class of arenes, consisting of two ortho-fused benzene rings. Naphthalene derivatives displayed a wide range biological activities, such as antimicrobial, antioxidant, cytotoxic, anti-inflammatory, anti-protozoal, and anti-platelet aggregation. This r ...

- ... Thymol (2-isopropyl-5-methylphenol) is an aromatic molecule typically distributed in the genera Thymus and Origanum, which possesses both pharmacological and industrial relevance. This review highlights thymol derivatives with a stereogenic or prostereogenic center, which are distributed in 42 genera of the Asteraceae family whose chemotaxonomy is also outlined. In order to achieve a systematic an ...
