    The juvenoids I, II, VI, VII, VIII, XII, XIII, XIV, and XVIII were kindly provided by Drs.M. Romaňuk, V. Jarolím, P. Beran, Z. Arnold and Prof.F. Šorm of the Institute of Organic chemistry and Biochemistry, ČSAV, Prague; the remaining juvenoids were obtained through the courtesy of Dr.J. B. Siddall of the Zoecon Corporation, Palo Alto, California. All juvenoids were mixtures of isomers; the aliphatic compounds contained about 80% of the 2-trans isomers.Google Scholar
