A series of unsaturated secondary amines have been isolated from the dolichoderine antTechnomyrmex albipes (F. Smith). The major components of the mixture have been shown by spectroscopic procedures to be dinon-8-enylamine, andN-hept-6-enylnon-8-enamine, and these structural assignments have been confirmed by synthesis. Mass spectrometry indicates the(More)
