Antifertility effects of naturally occurring phenyl propanoid derivatives against Boophilus microplus (Canestrinii)
Date of Publication
The acaricidal activity of five phenylpropanoid derivatives on adult female Boophilus microplus was compared with that of farnesynic acid. The activity was judged by the reduction in the number of eggs laid. The acaricidal activity varies with the substitution of the phenyl moiety.
