Isolation of the Toxic Principles of Cucumis Africanus L.f. Cucumis myriocarpus Naud. emend. Schweikerdt and of Cucumis leptodermis Schweikerdt sp. nov. Their haracterisation as Trilactones belonging to the Bitter Principle Class



Isolation of the Toxic Principles of Cucumis Africanus L.f. Cucumis myriocarpus Naud. emend. Schweikerdt and of Cucumis leptodermis Schweikerdt sp. nov. Their haracterisation as Trilactones belonging to the Bitter Principle Class



Onderstepoort J. vet. Sci, 4: 65-90



The author found that C. africanus and C. myriocarpus contained only one toxic principle which was given the name " cucumin ", whereas C. leptodermis contained a second crystalline toxic principle which was given the name " leptodermin ". It was found that these substances, in common with some of the complex lactones used as fish poisons by natives, were toxic for fish.
