Annona muricata L. is a plant commonly used in Southern Nigeria, for nutritional and medicinal purposes. This study wascarried out to determine the larvicidal potentials of ethanol extract and fractions of the leaf of A. muricata. The ethanol leafextract was subjected to phytochemical screening using standard protocol. The leaf crude extract and fractions (i.e., ethylacetate and n-hexane) were used for larvicidal assay. The stock solution (5g each in 100ml of water) was prepared. From thestock… Expand
