Potential of the plant oleander as green antifouling technology

One challenge to commercialisation of natural antifoulants is to find effective substances from flora and fauna with sufficient amount available. In a study, four cardenolides were isolated from the widely distributed plant oleander and evaluated for antifouling activity against barnacle settlement.
