Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Abstract

Four pentacyclic tritepenes were isolated from Combretum imberbe Engl. & Diels, of which two are novel glycosidic derivatives of 1α,3β,23-trihydroxyolean-12-en-29-oic acid (hydroxyimberbic acid). Terminalia stuhlmannii Engl. & Diels stem bark yielded two glycosides of hydroxyimberbic acid, one of which is reported for the first time. The structures of the isolated compounds were elucidated by spectroscopic methods. Several of the compounds had antibacterial activity, imberbic acid showing particularly potent activity against Mycobacterium fortuitum and Staphylococcus aureus.
