Abstract : A chemical investigation of the leaves of Myrtus communis afforded three flavonoids, namely myricetin, myricetin-3-O-α–rhamnoside and myricetin-3-O- β- glucoside. The structures of the isolated compounds were established by chromatographic behavior and by means of UV, NMR and MS spectral analysis, as well as comparison with literature values. Moreover, the antifungal activity test was carried out on chloroform extract and essential oil of the leaves of Myrtus communis, using the direct contact method against Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. Lycopersici (FOL). Only essential oil showed an activity.
