LARVICIDAL ACTIVITY OF EXTRACTS FROM MYXOPYRUM SERRATULUM A.W.HILL AGAINST AEDES AEGYPTI L

S Venkatachalapathi1*, Ebin Thomas2, Subban Ravi2

The larvicidal potential of extracts from Myxopyrum Serratulum was evaluated against larvae of Aedes aegypti. The results from the present study showed that the petroleum ether and methanolic extract from M. Serratulum exhibited significant toxic effects against Ae. aegypti larvae with LC50 value of 134.2 μg/ml and 172.47 μg/ml, respectively. Two compounds myxopyroside (1) and kaemferol (2) were isolated from methanolic extract. However, the synergetic effect of Kaemferol with Phenolic compound of methanolic extract shows higher larvicidal activity than petroleum ether extract.
