Insecticidal activity of 23 essential oils and their major compounds against adult Lipaphis pseudobrassicae (Davis) (Aphididae: Homoptera).
Essential oils from 23 species of plants comprising 14 genera and 4 plant families were obtained by Clevenger-type water distillation and showed aphids were quickly incapacitated and killed by aliphatic aldehydes, phenols and monocyclic terpenes contained in Bifora and Satureja oils.
Bioactivity-guided fractionation and GC/MS fingerprinting of Angelica sinensis and Angelica archangelica root components for antifungal and mosquito deterrent activity.
Phthalides and monoterpene hydrocarbons were determined to be good systematic markers or chemical fingerprints for A. sinensis and A. archangelica root oils and deterred the biting of two mosquito species more effectively than DEET.
Composition of the essential oils of Tanacetum armenum (DC.) Schultz Bip., T. balsamita L., T. chiliophyllum (Fisch. & Mey.) Schultz Bip. var. chiliophyllum and T. haradjani (Rech. fil.) Grierson and
Water-distilled essential oils from herbal parts of Tanacetum armenum (DC.) Schultz Bip., T. balsamita L.(syn. Balsamita major), T. chiliophyllum (Fisch. & Mey.) Schultz Bip. var. chiliophyllum and
Antimicrobial compounds from Pimpinella species growing in Turkey.
A new, 4-(2-propenyl)-phenyl angelate and four known phenylpropanoids were isolated from Pimpinella isaurica, a species endemic in Turkey, and these compounds have been evaluated for their antimalarial and antimicrobial activities.
Diversity and Biological Activities of Endophytic Fungi Associated with Micropropagated Medicinal Plant Echinacea purpurea (L.) Moench
The results suggest that the symbiosis between the endophytic fungal community and micropropagated clones of E. purpurea was re-established after acclimatization to soil and theendophytic fungi produced compounds against phytopathogenic fungi.
Essential Oils of Cupressus funebris, Juniperus communis, and J. chinensis (Cupressaceae) as Repellents Against Ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) and Mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) and as Toxicants Against
The essential oils of C. funebris, J. chinensis, and J. communis were evaluated for repellency against adult yellow fever mosquitoes, Aedes aegypti, host-seeking nymphs of the lone star tick, Amblyomma americanum, and the blacklegged tick, Ixodes scapularis Say, and for toxicity against Ae.
Chemical Composition, Antifungal and Insecticidal Activities of Hedychium Essential Oils
Hedychium oils acted either as a fire ant repellent or attractant, depending on plant genotype and oil concentration, and would make rather poor larvicides or adulticides for mosquito control.
Insecticidal and biting deterrent activity of rose-scented geranium (Pelargonium spp.) essential oils and individual compounds against Stephanitis pyrioides and Aedes aegypti.
All five geranium oils were toxic to S. pyrioides, and four of these five were more potent than malathion and neem; the high biting deterrent activity of geranic acid points to the need for further research.
