Databank on Phytochemistry and Phytotherapy

Stefan Dahl


Presented review serves as an example of the application of Excel-VBA on huge data amounts considering the areas of world-wide Ethnopharmacology, Pharmacognosy together with modern identification tools within Phytochemistry. In recent years, modern drug design has returned back to nature, rather applying guidance achieved from herb remedies valid during centuries. The databank established of information of 200 medicinal plants from all parts of the globe, comprises now of over 4700 entries of chemical components, their structural formulas and so far, over 500 identification spectra (EI-MS 85%, NMR 15%). The use of the databank facilitates the rapid survey on medicinal plants as well as search for remedies, where the possibility exists in searching at Portuguese, Swedish or Russian besides English. Names of 200 specimens are provided in Portuguese, English, French, German, Russian, Swedish, Finnish and Hungarian out of Latin (scientific name).
