Synthesis, Structure Activity Relationships and Mode of Action of Insect Pheromones

A Contribution for the Transmission of Chemical Information in Nature
  • Hans Jürgen Bestmann

Abstract

Insect pheromones are signal substances which effect the transmission of chemical information between the individua of an insect species. Female butterflies and moths in many cases use mono- and bisolefinic aldehydes, alcohols and acetates1) as their species specific sex pheromones. The corresponding male moths possess specialized sensory cells in their antennae, the dendrites of which end in the sensory hairs (sensilla). The odor molecules impinge on the antennal cuticle and reach the dendritic membrane by diffusion via pores and tubuli, where they interact with specific acception sites.
