Abstract: Despite extensive research on the chemical composition of elderberries and their numerous uses in pharmaceutical, beverage, and food production, there is still a lack of knowledge about Sambucus nigra leaves and flowers’ antimicrobial activity against plant pathogens. In this study, the phytoconstituents of their aqueous ammonia extracts were first characterized by infrared spectroscopy and gas chromatography–mass spectrometry. The major phytocompounds identified in the flower extract were octyl 2-methylpropan… Show more

“…The presence of catechol should be attributed to the rupture of catechin (a constituent identified by Lin et al [6] in the G. biloba leaves aqueous methanol extract) (Figure 2). Catechol had previously been identified in the extracts of Taxus baccata L. [31], Allium sativum L. [32], Sambucus nigra L. [33], and Quercus ilex L. [34], with concentrations ranging from 1.6 to 6.4% (compared to 3.3−7.9% in the extracts reported herein). Catechol oxidizes to melanoid pigments that are derivatives of benzoquinone, which is reported to have antimicrobial properties, slowing the decay of damaged fruits and other parts of plants.…”

“…2,3-dihydro-3,5-dihydroxy-6-methyl-4H-pyran-4-one was identified in Hibiscus syriacus L. [39], S. nigra [33], Punica granatum L. [40], and T. baccata [31]. In terms of antifungal activity, it is effective against Phytophthora megasperma Drechsler, Verticillium dahliae Kleb., and Diaporthe amygdali (Delacr.)…”
