Title: Trail Pheromones: Responses of the Texas Leafcutting Ant, Atta texana to Select Halo- and Cyanopyrrole-2-Aldehydes, Ketones, and Esters

Author: Sonnet, P. E.; Moser, John C.

Date: 1973

Source: Environmental Entomology 2(5): 851–854

Publication Series: Not categorized

Description: Several halo- and cyanopyrroles related to the trail pheromone of Atta texana (Buckley), were prepared and tested by a faster and more sensitive bioassay that was previously available. Responsiveness of the ants in descending order to these compounds, based on the substituent in the number two position, is: esters, methyl ketones, aldehydes. Slight activity was observed when the nitrogen atom of the pyrrole ring was alkylated.
