A new class of low-toxicity mosquito repellents is synthesized from alpha- and beta-pinene in terpenoid compounds and preliminary biological tests show promising mosquito repellency. Statistical modeling is built using Codessa in order to reveal the quantitative relationship between the structure and the biological activity and to provide the guidance for(More)
Interactions between low-toxicity terpenoid mosquito repellents and lactic acid are studied at the HF and B3LYP level. The subsequent QSAR study shows that not only the structure of repellents but also the repellent-lactic acid complexes may play an important role. It suggests that further study on interactions between repellents and characteristic(More)
Molecular interactions between terpenoid mosquito repellents and three typical human-secreted attractants, ammonia, 1-octen-3-ol, and formic acid were studied. Relative energies, bond distances, and bond angles of the molecular interactions were obtained at HF level to evaluate the interaction intensity and types. The effects of molecular interactions on(More)
A series of terpenoid compounds containing a six-member-ring were synthesized from alpha- and beta-pinenes. Antifeedant activity of these terpenoid compounds were tested on the aphid, Lipaphis erysimi (Kalt.), with promising results. Stepwise regression was applied to study the quantitative structure-activity relationship of these compounds. The(More)
By using dehydroabietyltrimethyl ammonium bromine (DTAB), a novel rosin-derived quaternary ammonium salt, as template and peroxotitanium acid as precursor, ordered lamellar supermicroporous titania has been synthesized via a hydrothermal process. The template agent:titanium source molar ratio in the synthesis system and the hydrothermal temperature have(More)
The development of a novel repellent plays an important role in the integrated control of Blattella germanica. A series of novel hydronopylformamides derivatives were synthesized from a naturally occurring compound (-)-β-pinene. The structures of these hydronopylformamides derivatives were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR),(More)
