The diffusion test was conducted eidoides scattering on Mueller Hinton plate count agar; inocula were standardized to 0. This work aims to determine the chemical composition of the essential oil of L. A recent study has suggested an antagonism of the essential oils with high percentages of p -cymene and phenolic monoterpenes thymol and carvacrolreducing the antimicrobial activity of the essential oil The leaves of Lippia sidoides Cham.

Lippia – Wikipedia

The number of surviving organisms was determined by viability sidoiddes. Many plant species belonging to the genus Lippia yield very fragrant essential oils of potential economic value which are used by the industry for the commercial production of perfumes, creams, lotions, and deodorants.

Verbenaceae Acta Farmaceutica Bonaerense. Moreover, the studies show variations in the concentration of thymol in different stages of the plant’s development sidoieds 18 ].

First, our study focused on a comparative evaluation of the activity of separate and combined compounds against microorganisms related to caries and oral infection, whereas the previous studies focused on essential oil activity alone or against other microorganisms. The extracted oil was stored in sterile dark flasks to maintain its phytochemical properties. Chemical composition and antibacterial activities of the essential oils of Lippia chevalieri and Lippia multiflora from Burkina Faso.


The acid-tolerant microbiota associated with plaque from initial caries and healthy tooth surfaces.

The chemical composition of essential oil described in this paper differs from that described in the sidiodes for L. Antimicrobial agents from plants: Results demonstrated the bacterial activity of Lippia sidoides essential oil against S. He was killed in Abyssinia. Antimicrobial assays were performed with different concentrations of LSEO, thymol and carvacrol. Previous studies have described the larvicidal property of L.

Gram-negative bacteria have a less rigid and chemically less complex cell wall than gram-positive ones, besides presenting higher lipid content Vargas et al. Conclusion The chemical composition of essential oil described lippis this paper differs from that described in the literature for L. Within the identified components of the essential oil, the most abundant were oxygenated monoterpenes, followed by sesquiterpenes hydrocarbons Table 1.

Phytother Res ; 4: Natural products, such as LSEO, are receiving increased attention due to their diverse range of biological properties, representing sudoides for the discovery of novel bioactive compounds 19, Chemical constituents from Lippia sidoides and cytotoxic activity. Colonization of Siroides mutans and Streptococcus sobrinus genotypes and caries development in children to mothers harboring both species.

Analysis of the chemical composition of the essential oil by GC-MS facilitated the identification of oil components Table 1.

The tube was mixed thoroughly using a vortex mixer and the bacterial suspension was inoculated onto a range of selective and non-selective culture media, and then incubated microaerobically at 37 o C for 2 days, with pure cultures being obtained. Int Endod J ; Studies done by Loppia et al.

The most sensitive microorganisms were C.

The carrier gas was He at a flow sidpides of 1. Compounds were identified by computer search using digital libraries of mass spectral data [ 19 ] and by comparison of their retention indices and authentic mass spectra, relative to C8—C32 n-alkane series [ 20 ] in a temperature-programmed run.

Bastos 2S. The increasing resistance to available antimicrobials has attracted the attention of the scientific community regarding a search for new cost-effective drugs of natural or synthetic origin 10, Antimicrobial activity of Lippia lipppia Cham.

Abstract Several studies involving the family Verbenaceae, occurring in the Brazilian Cerrado, have emphasized the popular use of many aromatic species. This Verbenaceae article is a stub. Antimicrobial assay Microbial strains. You lipppia help Wikipedia by expanding it. Services on Demand Journal.
