The genus Artemisia is a rich source of biologically active natural products. Approximately 200 Artemisia sp. grow in China, where more than 50 of them have been used in traditional Chinese medicine (Tan et al., 1998). Antibacterial action of non-volatile substances extracted Antibacterial action of non-volatile substances extracted from Artemisia tridentata Nutt. ssp. tridentata. Ramirez C.

A study on the activity of Artemisia annua on the genus Acanthamoeba showed that water, alcohol and chloroform extracts from Artemisia annua can be applied in general and local treatment or in combined therapy with antibiotics in the treatment of acanthamoebiasis. Artemisia vulgaris L . ( common mugwort ) Semantic ScholarRecently this species has been taken under consideration to be active toward the virus SARS-CoV-2 and disease COVID-19 . In 2015, the awarding of the Nobel Prize in Medicine for the discovery of artemisinin, a compound of plant origin found in Artemisia annua (annual mugwort), inspired the researchers to study the phytochemical and pharmacological properties of other species of the genus Artemisia.
Artemisia austro-yunnanensis, belonging to the family Asterales, is distributed mainly in south Asia regions. So far, there is no chemical and biologically active researches about this plant. In current study, for the first time, essential oil from the the flowers of Artemisia austro-yunnanensis was extracted by hydrodistillation and analyzed by gas chromatography (GC) and GC/mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Detection of Sesquiterpene Lactones in Ten Artemisia The genus Artemisia characteristically contains this biologically active type of secondary metabolites. With respect to increasing interest in the cytotoxic, antibiotic, phototoxic and antineoplastic activities of sesquiterpene lactones, identification of these compounds in Khorasanian Artemisia species, that some of them are endemic to Iran, can be worth while.

Tan RX, Zheng WF, Tang HQ. Planta Med, 64(4):295-302, 01 May 1998 Cited The genus Artemisia:a comprehensive reviewThe genus Artemisia (Astraceae) consists of about 500 species, occurring throughout the world. The present review comprises the ethnopharmacological, phytochemical and therapeutic potential of various species of Artemisia. Objective:The aim of this this review is to bring together most of the available scientific research conducted on the
biological results obtained in the past decade. The significance and trends in this field are briefly discussed. Key words:Artemisia, Compositae, biologically active sub-stances. Introduction The genus Artemisia L., one of the largest genera belonging to the Compositae family consisting of more than 350 species, is
