ABSTRACT A series of substituted aromatic amides by varying the chain length, substitution of methyl, methoxy, chloro, and fluoro groups at ortho-, meta-, and para-positions of the phenyl ring of N,N-diethyl-2-phenylacetamide were synthesized. Laboratory studies were carried out to observe the behavioral responses and repellent activity of these newly synthesized aromatic amides against Aedes aegypti (L.) mosquitoes. The deterrent activity of these synthetic amides against any vectors has not… 
Topical Preparation of Newer and Safer Analogs of N,N-diethyl-2-phenylacetamide (DEPA) against Aedes aegypti Mosquitoes
Four newer analogs of N,N-diethyl-2-phenylacetamide (DEPA), were synthesized and formulated for topical application as insect repellent and assessed for their irritant behavior on rabbit’s skin forerythema and edema.
Oviposition and flight orientation response of Aedes aegypti to certain aromatic aryl hydrazono esters
Oviposition by A. aegypti females to aryl hydrazono esters (AHE)-treated bowls at 10 ppm concentration was tested in dual choice experiment, and their orientation response to these ester compounds was studied in Y-tube olfactometer.
Commercially Available Essential Oil Formulas as Repellents Against the Stored-Product Pest Alphitobius diaperinus
EOs can be potentially used as repellent agents in A. diaperinus management and data on the locomotor activity may lead to designing better push-pull strategies in pest management.
1 Commercially available essential oils formulas as a 2 repellents of common stored products pest 3 Alphitobius diaperinus 4
The main scope of the presented paper is an assessment of the potential repellent effect of 13 selected essential oils (EOs) against Alphitobius diaperinus, which can cause economic losses in 14
A rationale to design longer lasting mosquito repellents
Based on the structure of menthone, a moderate natural repellent, some cyclic ketals that, because of their reduced volatility, could be effective for longer periods of protection against mosquito bites are designed and synthesised.
Electron Ionization (EI) Induced Mass Spectral Analysis of SubstitutedPhenylacetamides
A variety of substituted Phenylacetamides of piperidine and morpholine as potent mosquito repellents have been synthesized and their mass spectral fragmentation pattern under electron impact have
A rapid review of personal protective measures for preventing Zika virus infection among pregnant women
Although definitive data is lacking, insecticide-treated nets and mosquito repellents may be considered safe and potentially effective measures for preventing ZIKV infection during pregnancy.


In Vitro Repellency of N,N-Diethyl-3-methylbenzamide and N,N-Diethylphenylacetamide Analogs Against Aedes aegypti and Anopheles stephensi (Diptera: Culicidae)
Overall, two DEPA analogs and a single DEET analog provided better repellency than DEET against both mosquito species and warrant future laboratory and field evaluation.
N,N-Diethyl Phenylacetamide (DEPA): A Safe and Effective Repellent for Personal Protection Against Hematophagous Arthropods
The repellent DEPA was evaluated on army personnel in comparison with dimethylphthalate (DMP) and DEET against mosquitoes, black flies, and land leeches under field condition in the North-East Frontier area of India and revealed that DEPA is safe.
Predicting mosquito repellent potency of N,N-diethyl-m-toluamide (DEET) analogs from molecular electronic properties.
Specific molecular electronic properties of 30 N,N-diethyl-m-toluamide (DEET) analogs demonstrate functional dependence with their reported duration of protection against mosquito bites, thus
Biting Deterrent Activity of a Deet Analog, Two DEPA Analogs, and SS220 Applied Topically to Human Volunteers Compared with Deet Against Three Species of Blood-Feeding Flies
Results with humans showed that neither of the DEPA analogs nor the Deet analog performed more effectively than Deet against the insects, and the in vivo results showed that the analogs were not sufficiently effective to warrant further development.
Mosquito repellency & toxicity of isomeric N, N-diethyltolylacetamides.
Three isomers of N, N-diethyltolylacetamides were synthesized and evaluated against Aedes aegypti and Culex quinquefasciatus for repellency and with mice for LD50, as an indicator of mammalian
Effectiveness of macrogol and talcum base formulations of a new insect repellent N, N‐diethyl phenyl acetamide
The effectiveness of macrogol and talcum base formulations of a new multi‐insect repellent N, N‐diethyl phenyl acetamide (DEPA) was studied against Aedes aegypti mosquitoes in the laboratory and have not shown any gross adverse effect to the skin of albino rabbits.
N,N-diethylphenylacetamide in treated fabrics as a repellent against Aedes aegypti and Culex quinquefasciatus (Diptera: Culicidae).
Fabric impregnated with N,N-diethylphenylacetamide (DEPA), a new repellent, was studied in the laboratory and field against Aedes aegypti and Culex quinquefasciatus Say and patches were found to be a practical and novel approach.
Insect repellent N,N-diethylphenylacetamide: an update.

Safety of the insect repellent N,N-diethyl-M-toluamide (DEET) in pregnancy.
The results suggest that the risk of DEET accumulating in the fetus is low and that DEET is safe to use in later pregnancy.
Repellent activity of selected plant essential oils against the malarial fever mosquito Anopheles stephensi.
