Synthesis of the two components of the sex pheromone system of the potato tuberworm moth, Phthorimaea operculella (Zeller) (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae) and field experience with them



Synthesis of the two components of the sex pheromone system of the potato tuberworm moth, Phthorimaea operculella (Zeller) (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae) and field experience with them



Journal of Chemical Ecology, 45: 531-542



Males of Phthorimaea operculella (Zell.) are attracted by a mixture of trans-4,cis-7-tridecadienyl acetate and trans-4,cis-7,cis-10-tridecatrienyl acetate. The synthesis of both compounds is described. Overall yields were 14.4 and 9.5% after distillation. The products were purified by liquid chromatography. Mixtures of these compounds in several ratios and quantities were tested in potato fields in Australia, Peru and Cyprus.
