Synthesis and field testing of enantiomers of 6Z,9Z-cis-3,4-epoxydienes as sex attractants for geometrid moths : Interactions of enantiomers and regioisomers



Synthesis and field testing of enantiomers of 6Z,9Z-cis-3,4-epoxydienes as sex attractants for geometrid moths : Interactions of enantiomers and regioisomers



Journal of Chemical Ecology 16(7): 2317-2339



Stereoselective syntheses of chiral C17-C21 6Z,9Z-cis-3,4-epoxy-dienes were developed. The enantiomerically-enriched epoxides were tested as components of synthetic sex attractant lures in a forest in Saskatchewan. Those with chain lengths of C17 and C19 were particularly attractive to males of several species. Males were usually specifically attracted by one of a pair of enantiomers, and the opposite enantiomer could be a behavioural antagonist.
