ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1016/S0031-9422(02)00632-5||Abstract:||We screened more than 60 Malaysian plants against two species of insects and found that Melicope subunifoliolata (Stapf) T.G. Hartley (Rutaceae) showed strong feeding deterrent activity against Sitophilus zeamais Motsch. (Curculionidae) and very good larvicidal activity against Aedes aegypti L. (Diptera). One anti-insect compound, meliternatin (3,5-dimethoxy-3′,4′,6,7-bismethylendioxyflavone) (6) and six other minor polyoxygenated flavones were isolated from M. subunifoliolata. © 2003 Published by Elsevier Science Ltd.||Source Title:||Phytochemistry||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/76472||ISSN:||00319422||DOI:||10.1016/S0031-9422(02)00632-5|
