Abstract

The four stereoisomers of 8-methyl-2-decyl propanoate were tested in South Dakota for attractiveness to the northern corn rootworm, Diabrotica barberi Smith and Lawrence (NCR). Only the 2 R,8 R configuration was attractive to the NCR. Inhibition of the NCR response to 2 R,8 R occurred when either the 2 S,8 R or 2 S,8 S isomers were components of the pheromone source. The 2 R,8 S configuration elicited no behavioral activity in the NCR.
