OBJECTIVE To identify the larvicidal activities of silver nano particles synthesised with Rhizophora mucronata (R. mucronata) leaf extract against the larvae of Aedes aegypti (Ae. aegypti) and Culex quinquefasciatus (Cx. quinquefasciatus). METHODS In vitro larvicidal activities such as LC(50) and LC(90) were assessed for the Ae. aegypti and Cx. quinquefasciatus larval species. Further, characterisation such as UV, XRD, FTIR and AFM analysis were carried out for the synthesised silver nano… CONTINUE READING
