Mean larval survival times were similar in all the concentrations of acetone extract (Log-Rank Test = 6.26; df = 4; P < 0.18; Table 1) and mean survival time for larvae fed acetone extract was the same as the control diet treatment.
The specimens were immersed in acetone at 30[degrees]C and - 10[degrees]C.
In this stage the acetone will be extracted as the resin mixture is incorporated into the sections, evidenced by bubbles rising to the surface.
This was repeated for the acetone extract and pure constituents.
This experiment used acetone as the tracer, as acetone has good signal intensity, low toxicity, high vapor pressure, accessible absorption (225-320 nm), and fluorescence (350 550 nm) [9-11].
