Antifeedant and ovicidal activities of a new cassane and other compounds from Caesalpinia welwitschiana Oliv. and Caesalpinia bonduc L. against Tuta absoluta (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae)

Abstract:

Methanolic extracts of liana of Caesalpinia welwitschiana and leaves of C. bonduc were found to possess moderate antifeedant and ovicidal activities against Tuta absoluta. Bioassay-guided isolation of constituents from the most active fraction of C. welwitschiana led to the identification of four known compounds [isobonducellin 1a and bonducellin 1 b, intricatinol 2, (-)-epigallocatechin-3-O-gallate 4] and one new constituent [welwitschianic acid 3]. The most active fraction of C. bonduc afforded two known constituents neocaesalpin L 5 and neocaesalpin A 6. The isolated structures were elucidated on the basis of their MS, UV, IR and 1 & 2 D NMR spectra and by comparison with literature data.Compounds 2, 4-6 were showed antifeedant and ovicidal properties against T. absoluta, some comparable to that of azadirachtin at 50, 100 and 200 ng/ml. Overall, the present study, conclude that the two species of the plant could be a promising source of ecofriendly botanical constituents.
