- Antifungal activities of longifolene and its autoxidation products were investigated using five fungi: Trametes versicolor, Lenzites betulinus, Gloeophyllum trabeum, Trichoderma virens, and Rhizopus oryzae. Longifolene showed very little to no antifungal activity against any of the fungi. Its autoxidation products, longicamphenylol, longifolic acid, longifolene oxide, and longifolene-hydroxyketone, did show anti-fungal activities. In particular, longifolic and isolongifolic acid demonstrate strong anti-fungal activity. Longifolene autoxidation products may possess several economically viable bioactivities.
