"Phytochemical analysis Sesquiterpene, Monoterpene, Oxygenated Bi cyclic Sesquiterpene, Ketone and Ester dominated in the essential oils. Table 3 shows top three chemical components in essential oils from different parts in percentage. Gertsch et al. found Caryophyllene to cause spiciness of black pepper.

It also enhanced the sluggish condition of the insects worsened after 24 hours. All essential oils of B. albiflora had LC 50 =12.35 ÂµL. A comparison of repellent effect revealed that the essential oils from B. albiflora root and stem took least time, i.e. 3.5 hrs for 100% repellency while essential oil from leaves took maximum time.
