Abstract

The activities of three diterpenoids isolated from Chilean medicinal plants, kaurenoic, 18-acetoxy-cis-cleroda-3, 13-Z-dien-15-oic-acid-and salvic acid, have been quantitatively evaluated against Streptococous mutans by means of a microcalorimetric technique. Salvic acid exhibited a reasonable antibacterial activity, comparable with that of control iodine.
