Abstract

Synthesis and biological evaluation of (E)‐ and (Z)‐8‐tetradecenyl formate 3, 4 as pheromone mimics was executed. A 10:1 mixture of the (E)‐ and (Z)‐formate was shown to be as attractive as a 10: 1 mixture of (E)‐ and (Z)‐10‐hexadecenal (1, 2) (genuine pheromone) in a 100‐ng dose against the male yellow peach moth, Dichocrocis punctiferalis.
