GC-MS Characterization of Ethanolic Extract from Croton wagneri Müll. Arg.

José González, Julio Pérez, Max Monan, Osvaldo Rodríguez
An ethanolic extract at 50% obtained by maceration process was characterized by GC-MS using a Shimadzu QP2010 spectrometer and the Silylation agent was N,O-bis (trimethylsilyl) trifluoroacetamide (BSTFA). The compounds were analyzed using GC/MS NIST21 and NIST107 libraries and having into account the results obtained after phytochemical screening and comparing the results with NISTDEMO Software. After 78 minutes of running 859 chemical components were identifie

UHPLC-DAD-ESI-MS/MS Analysis of Flavonoids from Ethanolic Extracts of Theobroma cacao Husk in Cuba

José González, Danae Pérez, Enrique Gómez, Damaris de la C. Salgado, Max Monan
A sample of ethanolic extracts of the husk of Theobroma cacao L. was scru-tinized using a UHPLC/DAD/MS Thermo scientific Dionex Ultimate 3000 RS coupled to a Thermo scientific LTQ XL mass spectrometer. In addition, about seven different chemical compounds were tentatively identified in this species based on chromatography retention time (Rt), UV and MS/MS spectra and compared with those of iso

Proximate Composition and Phytochemical Screenings of Crotalaria retusa Leaves and Seeds

J. A. Alalade, J. A. Akinlade, A. A. Akingbade, C. B. Emiola, I. A. Adebisi
The leaves and seeds of Crotalaria retusa were evaluated for the proximate, mineral and anti-nutritional contents in a completely randomized design. Atomic absorption spectrometry was used in determination of the seeds and leaves for phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, calcium and iron. Anti-nutritional factors (ANFs) including tannin, oxalate and phytate were also determined using appropriate technique

Corrections in Recently Described Species of Ferns and Lycophytes from the Neotropics

Alexander Francisco Rojas-Alvarado
In recent papers on ferns and allied plants, several new species names were published invalidly or illegitimately, because they had been used previously or because their type specimens were designated ambiguously. The International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants (Shenzhen version) was revised to remedy these situations and to apply correct names for the new taxa. Finally, new names are proposed or the correct ty

Three New Species and New Records of Dennstaedtia Bernh. from Mesoamerica

Alexander Francisco Rojas-Alvarado, Federico Villalobos-Brenes
Navarrete & Ollgaard [1] indicated the presence of a “C” group within Dennstaedtia Bernh. that contains D. obtusifolia (Willd.) T. Moore, which is the type material of the genus Patania C. Presl and indicated that it could require taxonomic recognition. They also discussed the situation generated by other authors including D. cornuta (Kaulf.) Mett. and D. obtusifolia as synonyms for D. dissecta (Sw.) T. Moore a
