L-Lactic Acid: A Mosquito Attractant Isolated from Humans
Good correlation was found between the attractiveness of an individual to mosquitoes and the quantity of lactic acid present in an acetone washing of his hand.
Insect Sex Pheromones: Minor Amount of Opposite Geometrical Isomer Critical to Attraction
(Z)-II-Tetradecenyl acetate is the reported sex pheromone of European corn borer and redbanded leafroller moths. However, geometrically pure preparations of the compound are weakly attractive to
Sex Attractant Pheromone of the House Fly: Isolation, Identification and Synthesis
A sex pheromone isolated from the cuticle and feces of the female house fly attracts the male fly; it has been identified as (Z)-9-tricosene. Chemical and biological comparisons of the natural and
Isomer Content and Other Factors Influencing Captures of Oriental Fruit Moth by Synthetic Pheromone Traps
Responsible captures of the male Grapholitha molesta (Busck) by traps baited with its synthetic sex pheromone, ( Z )-8-dodecenyl acetate, and dodecyl alcohol (a synergist) were investigated, and the addition of a small percentage of the E isomer to the phersomone resulted in enhanced attraction.
Potent Sex Attractant of the Gypsy Moth: Its Isolation, Identification, and Synthesis
The sex attractant emitted by the female gypsy moth has been identified as cis-7,8-epoxy-2-methyloctadecane. The structure was verified by spectral, gas chromatographic, and biological comparisons
Host-Seeking Stimulants (Kairomones) for the Egg Parasite, Trichogramma evanescens , ,
Chemicals utilized by insects to foster host-parasite relationships (potentially useful for suppression of insect pests in an ecologically acceptable manner) were found in moth scales of Heliothis
