Among the substances isolated from ethyl ether extract of Pistia stratiotes L., linoleic acid, gamma-linolenic acid, (12R,9Z,13E,15Z)-12-hydroxy-9,13,15-octadecatrienoic acid, (9S,10E,12Z,15Z)-9-hydroxy-10,12,15-octadecatrienoic acid, alpha-asarone, and 24S-ethyl-4,22-cholestadiene-3,6-dione were found to inhibit the growth of some microalgae in solid medium. Toxicity of alpha-asarone on the growth of sensitive algal strains in liquid medium is discussed
