Abstract

Four terpenoid compounds, (+)-cis-2-isopropenyl-1-methylcyclobutaneethanol, (1), Z-3,3-dimethyl-Δ1, -cyclohexaneethanol (2), Z-3,3-dimethyl-Δ1,∝-cyclohexaneacetaldehyde (3), and E-3,3-dimethyl-Δ1,∝-cyclo-hexaneacetaldehyde (4), weee identified as the components of the male sex pheromone of the boll weevil. The synthesis and structural assignments of the four compounds are also reported.
