Author(s): Rajnikant Sharma, Nisha Negi, Simon Gibbons, Hideaki Otsuka, Devendra S.Negi

Hexane andmethanolic extract of Boenninghausenia albiflora leaveswere evaluated against polyphagous pest Spodoptera litura L. The bioactive guided fractionation led to isolation of 2-Octadecanone(1), palmitic acid(2), p-methoxy-methyl cinnamate(3) and 3-(3’,4’dihydroxyphenyl) propyl hexadecanoate(4) identified by employingGC-MS. Two known coumarins, murralongin(5) and albiflorin-3(6) were also isolated as antifeedant from methanol soluble fraction.
