The T. cinerariifolium (previous species name: Chrysanthemum cinerariaefolium) aka pyrethrum, a perennial herb belonging to the family Asteraceae is a remarkable plant. The plant is well known for its economic importance as  a source of an important group of secondary metabolites known as pyrethrins, which is a potent insecticide. Pyrethrins are esters of either pyrethric acid or chrysanthemic acid with alcohol moiety termed as rethrolone. Pyrethrins are a set of six structurally similar compounds including pyrethrin I, cinerin I, jasmolin I (pyrethrin Type I) and pyrethrin II, cinerin II, jasmolin II (pyrethrin Type II). Although pyrethrins occur throughout the aerial parts of the plant, the maximum accumulation of pyrethrin is concentrated in the flower heads, which is many folds higher than in leaves
