The Cumulative CAMAG Bibliography Service CCBS contains all abstracts of CBS issues beginning with CBS 51. The database is updated after the publication of every other CBS edition. Currently the Cumulative CAMAG Bibliography Service includes more than 11'000 abstracts of publications between 1983 and today. With the online version you can perform your own detailed TLC/HPTLC literature search:

  • Full text search: Enter a keyword, e.g. an author's name, a substance, a technique, a reagent or a term and see all related publications
  • Browse and search by CBS classification: Select one of the 38 CBS classification categories where you want to search by a keyword
  • Keyword register: select an initial character and browse associated keywords
  • Search by CBS edition: Select a CBS edition and find all related publications

Registered users can create a tailor made PDF of selected articles throughout CCBS search – simply use the cart icon on the right hand of each abstract to create your individual selection of abstracts. The saved items can be printed to PDF using the print function of your web browser.

      Three new abietane-type diterpenoids from Plectranthus africanus and their antibacterial activities
      R.T. NZOGONG, B.K. NGANOU, A.T. TEDONKEU, M.D. AWOUAFACK, M. TENE*, T. ITO, P. TANE, H. MORITA** (*Laboratory of Natural Products Chemistry, Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science, University of Dschang, Dschang, Cameroon; ** Institute of Natural Medicine, University of Toyama, Toyama, Japan; *; **

      Planta Medica 84(1), 59-64 (2018). A multi-step fractionation through silica gel column chromatography (CC) of a methanolic extract of Plectranthus africanus (whole plant, Lamiaceae) was monitored through TLC on silica gel with various solvent mixtures (n-hexane or dichloromethane with either acetone or methanol). Zones were detected under UV and further by spraying with sulfuric acid 20 % and heating at 100°C. For each fraction or TLC profile, the authors provide the CC gradient, the optimal proportions of the solvents used for the TLC mobile phase, as well as the RF values of the molecules isolated by this CC method: new abietane-type diterpenoids (plectranthroyleanones A, B, C), betulinic and oleanolic acids, heterosides of apigenin, rhamnetin and sitosterol.
