Insect sex attractants. 13. Isolation, identification, and synthesis of sex pheromones of the male Mediterranean fruit fly



Insect sex attractants. 13. Isolation, identification, and synthesis of sex pheromones of the male Mediterranean fruit fly



Journal of Medicinal Chemistry 16(3): 248-251



The sex pheromones produced by the males of Ceratitis capitata (Wied.) were collected by air condensation, separated in pure form and identified as methyl (E)-6-nonenoate and (E)-6-nonen-1-ol. Both pheromones were synthesised and shown separately to be attractive and sexually excitatory to females in the laboratory. Field-cage attraction required a combination of both pheromones and certain acids also produced by the males.
