, low persistence in the environment, biodegradability, and no develop- ment of resistance by insect pest (Céspedes et al., 2000). After the isolation of azadirachtin, an effective insect antifeedant against the desert lo- cust (Butterworth and Morgan, 1971), from neem seeds, several limonoids from the order Rutales have been screened for their insect antifeedant activity. Limonoids are modifi ed triterpenes. They present a wide range of biological activities, in- cluding insect-antifeeding and growth-regulating properties, a variety of medicinal effects on

1 Introduction Limonoids are a class of highly oxygenated tetranortriterpenoids with complex and diverse structures and are considered as good taxonomic markers in the Meliaceae family [ 1 ], [ 2 ]. This family, included in the order Rutales and subdivided into the four subfamilies, Swietenioideae, Melioideae, Quivisianthoideae, and Capuronianthoideae [ 3 ], consists of 51 genera containing about 1400 species, which grow in tropical and subtropical regions of both hemispheres [ 3 ]. In Cameroon, the Meliaceae family comprises six representative genera: Cedrela

© 2011 Verlag der Zeitschrift für Naturforschung, Tübingen · http://znaturforsch.com Introduction In the last decades considerable efforts have been devoted to the discovery of new sources of botanical insecticides and antifeedants. Among the plant families studied, Meliaceae and Ruta- ceae are perhaps the most promising (Schoon- hoven, 1982), at least partly due to the presence of limonoids and triterpenoids characteristic of the Rutales order. The biological activity of limo- noids from Rutales has been reviewed (Cham- pagne et al., 1992). Some neem
