Synthesis of (-)-periplanone-B a sex pheromone component of the American cockroach (periplaneta americana)
Abstract The naturally occurring (-)-enantiomer of periplanone-B was synthesized stereoselectively starting from ( S )-3-cyclohexene-1-carboxylic acid. The crystalline pheromone was obtained in 12%Expand
