Insecticidal and Acaricidal Activity of Essential Oils Rich in (E)-Nerolidol from Melaleuca leucadendra Occurring in the State of Pernambuco (Brazil) and Effects on Two Important Agricultural Pests
TLDR
The analysis revealed a M. leucadendra chemotype rich in (E)-nerolidol, which was more toxic to P. xylostella than Azamax®, the agricultural pests Tetranychus urticae and Plutella xylstella in different stages of development.
Molecular Structure and QSAR Study on Antispasmodic Activity of some Xanthoxyline Derivatives
TLDR
The results indicate that the spatial distribution of HOMO and LUMO orbitals over these specific atoms play an important role for an increase of biological activity.
Glutathione S-transferase activity in aquatic macrophytes and halophytes and biotransformation potential for biocides.
TLDR
The competitive kinetic tests suggest that among the five biocides that were tested, chlorothalonil, DCOIT, and dichlofluanid are probably preferred for biotransformation via GST in plant.
