Abstract

The molecular structures of insect sex pheromones are quite diverse. They vary from the very simple straight-chain alcohols, acetates, and aldehydes that are predominant in the repertory of lepidopteran sexual communication to the more elaborate isoprenoids employed by scale insects. Synthesis of the simpler pheromones has been concerned primarily with chain elongation and the establishment of the required geometry about one or more double bonds. The more varied fare of other insect pheromones has focused considerable attention on their three-dimensional nature.
