Chemical Constituents and Larvicidal Activity of the Essential Oil of Polylophium Involvucratum (Pall.) Boiss (Apiaceae)

Verdian Rizi Mohammad Reza and Hadjiakhoondi Abbas

Abstract:
The chemical composition of the essential oil obtained from the seeds of Polylophium involvucratum (pall.) Boiss has been examined by GC and GC/MS. The main components of the oil has been identified. The major components were limonene (60.39%), aldehyde and alcohol derivatives of limonene (34.45%). The laboratory bioassay of the essential oil against Anopheles stephensi and Culex pipiens was carried out to evaluate the larvicidal activity. The tested oil proved to have strong larvicidal activity against A. stephensi larva (LD50: 8.01-13.59 mg mLG1) and C. pipiens larva (LD50: 3.68-5.13 mg mLG1).
