(±)- Periplanone-B. Total synthesis and structure of the sex excitant pheromone of American cockroach

Author: Still, W. C.

Description:Females of the species Periplaneta americana, the American cockroach, have long been known to produce an extraordinarily potent sex pheromone.  Unlike the long-range sex attractants which help many insects to locate a receptive mate, the cockroach pheromone acts over relatively short distances and functions largely as a close proximity sex excitant.
