Abstract

Some steam distillates collected from leaves of ten Rutaceous plants by Simple Steam Distillation method have been investigated for antimicrobid and insecticidal activity. Murraya paniculata, Toddalia asiatica, Lirnonia acidissima and Glycosmis pentaphylla have shown significant anti fungal activity against Cladosporium cladosponoides. High antibacterial activity was displayed by L. acidissima and M. paniculata against Staphylococcus aureus. Atalantia monophylla and Acronychia pedunculata caused significant mortality of the aphid. Aphis craccivora.
