The citrus mealybug, is a cosmopolitan pest and affects many crops. The female sex pheromone has been identified by Bierl-Leonhardt et al., in 1981 as (+)-(1R)-cis-2,2-dimethyl-3isopropenylcyclobutanemethanol acetate 1. Several groups including our team have synthesized the pheromone. A number of analogs have also been prepared in order to study the structure-activity relationship. We present here a modified synthetic route for the pheromone, preparation of some analogs and the biological… CONTINUE READING
