Abstract: The volatile fraction of Xylopia langsdorffiana leaves was analyzed by GC and GC/MS and tested for molluscicidal activity. With this methodology 19 different components were identified in the oil. Among them, germacrene D (22.9%), trans-β-guaiene (22.6%), β-caryophyllene (15.7%), and α-pinene (7.3%) were found to be the major constituents. The oil showed significant molluscicidal activity against Biomphalaria glabrata, with an LC90 value of 5.6 μ.g/mL, which falls below the threshold of 100 μg/mL, set for potential molluscicidal activity by the World Health Organization. © 2007 Allured Publishing Corp.
