Antimicrobial and pesticidal activity of partially purified flavonoids of Annona squamosa.
Foliar extracts of Annona squamosa (Family: Annonaceae) were screened for antimicrobial and insecticidal activity against the common microbial infestants of pulses and the stored grain pest pulseExpand
Partial characterization and insecticidal properties of Ricinus communis L foliage flavonoids.
Aqueous leaf extract of Ricinus communis L (Euphorbiaceae), a cultivated plant in tropical countries, showed excellent insecticidal activity against Callosobruchus chinensis L (Coleoptera:Expand
Efficacy of flavonoids in controlling Callosobruchus chinensis (L.) (Coleoptera: Bruchidae), a post-harvest pest of grain legumes
Abstract The effects of partially purified flavonoids obtained from Calotropis procera (Ait.) R. Br. and six standard flavonoids on the adults and eggs of Callosobruchus chinensis (L.), reared onExpand
Hypolipidemic effect of Terminalia arjuna (L.) in experimentally induced hypercholesteremic rats
The hypolipidemic activity of the 50% ethanol extract of bark of T. arjuna were evaluated in rats. The 50% v/v ethanol bark extract at the dose of 40mg/kg body weight, substantially reduced theExpand
