Isolation and determination of the structures of components of the sex pheromone ofPandemis ribeana

  • V. P. Konyukhov


It has been shown with the aid of gas-liquid chromatography, mass spectrometry electroantennographic testing, and some microchemical reactions that the sex pheromone of females of the tortricid mothPandemis ribeana HB is a mixture of the acetates of tetradec-cis-ll-en-l-ol (I) and tetradec-trans-ll-en-l-ol (II) in a ratio of 1:1. In the tests it was found that a mixture of (I) and (II) in a ratio of 7.5:92.5, respectively, was the most attractive for females ofP. ribeana.
