1. Technology Overview
The present invention discloses a bioinsecticide formulation with potent mosquito-larvicidal activity comprising: an effective amount of 14-Deoxy-xyloccensin K as indicated in Formula as an active ingredient; an adequate amount of solvent to dissolve the active ingredient; 20 to 30 wt% of carrier oil to stabilize the dissolved active ingredient; 20 to 30 wt% of surfactant to emulsify the dissolved active ingredient and the carrier oil; and 40 to 60 wt% of water as the base ingredient of the entire formulation. The active ingredient in the bioinsecticide formulation is an isolated natural limonoid compound extracted from a plant known as Chisocheton erythrocarpus. The bioinsecticide formulation is safe to the environment and helps to improve human health by controlling the breeding/development of harmful mosquitoes that may bring deathful diseases like severe dengue fever, Zika virus, Chikungunya virus, as Japanese Encephalitis virus (JEV) and others.
