Aggregation Pheromone of Coconut Rhinoceros Beetle, Oryctes rhinoceros (L.) (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae)
Male coconut rhinoceros beetles,Oryctes rhinoceros (L.), produce three sex-specific compounds, ethyl 4-methyloctanoate, ethyl 4-methylheptanoate, and 4-methyloctanoic acid, the first of which is an aggregation pheromone. ...
Pheromone chirality of african palm weevil, Rhynchophorus phoenicis (F.) and palmetto weevil, Rhynthophorus crueniatus (F.) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)
There are four stereoisomers of both 3-methyl-octan-4-ol, the aggregation pheromone of the African palm weevil,Rhynchophorus phoenicis (F.) and 5-methyl-octan-4-ol, the aggregation pheromone of the palmetto weevil,Rhynchophorus ...
Ethyl propionate: Synergistic kairomone for african palm weevil,Rhynchophorus phoenicis L. (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)
Small trunk pieces of a freshly felled 10-year-old oil palm,Elaeis quineensis (Jacq.), were placed in a modified Nalgene desiccator, and volatiles captured for six days on Porapak Q. Gas chromatographic (GC) analysis of ...
Efficient syntheses of streptocarpone and (±)-a-dunnione
An efficient divergent synthesis of both streptocarpone and racemic α-dunnione from lawsone are described. A one-pot, formal [3+2] cyclization to form a furanonaphthoquinone directly provided a common intermediate.
Evaluation of a recent product to remove lipids and other matrix co-extractives in the analysis of pesticide residues and environmental contaminants in foods
This study demonstrates the application of a novel lipid removal product to the residue analysis of 65 pesticides and 52 environmental contaminants in kale, pork, salmon, and avocado by fast, low pressure gas chromatography ...
Granular Activated Carbon Treatment May Result in Higher Predicted Genotoxicity in the Presence of Bromide
Certain unregulated disinfection byproducts (DBPs) are more of a health concern than regulated DBPs. Brominated species are typically more cytotoxic and genotoxic than their chlorinated analogs. The impact of granular ...
Neutral organic redox pairs based on sterically hindered hydroquinone/benzoquinone derivatives for dye-sensitized solar cells
Substituted derivatives of hydroquinone/benzoquinone were studied as organic redox mediators in the electrolyte for dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). Thus, di-tert-butylhydroquinone (DTHQ), thymohydroquinone (ThymHQ) and ...
Dye‐sensitized Devices: Photovoltaic and Photoelectrolytic Applications
Dye‐sensitized approach along with stability and surface robustness in titanium dioxide (TiO2) against photocorrosion and degradation has been widely studied and applied in several important applications. This chapter ...
Monomeric Germanium(II) Amides Bearing β-Diketiminato Ligands: Synthesis, Structural Characterization, and Thermal Properties
Germanium(II) compounds featuring β-diketiminate-type ligands are attractive for applications as nanoparticle precursors, imaging agents, and components of electronic devices. In this work, we report the synthesis of ...
The crystal structure of the title compound, [CoLi(C11H21N2O)Cl2(C4H8O)2], has monoclinic symmetry and comprises one heterometallic binuclear complex molecule in the asymmetric unit. The Co2+ cation is bonded to one oxygen ...
