Abstract

Cashew nut liquid (CSNL) extracted by the Soxhlet method exhibited toxicity against the golden snail (Pomocea canaliculata) and brine shrimp (Artemia salina). Chemical test and infra-red (IR) spectroscopy indicated the presence of several phenolic compounds that may have contributed to these observed toxicities. The relationship between toxicity and structure of known CNSL phenolics is discussed in this paper.
