Tetranthera.—From the bark of the lauraceous plant, T. citrata Nees (now Litsea citrata Blume), J. D. Filippo has extracted an alkaloid, laurotetanine. (See A. Pharm., 1898, 601.)
Charabot and Lalone examined the volatile oils from various parts of Tetranthera (Litsea citrata). The oil from the bark has the sp. gr. 0.8673 at 15° C. (59° F.), that from the leaves 0.9013 at 15° C. (59° F.) and that from the fruits 0.8872 at 15° C. (59° F.). (P. J., 1908, 351.)
