Abstract

The preparation and bioassay of a number of analogs of the trail-following pheromone of the town ant, Atta texana (Buckley), are described. Although several compounds were quite active, isomers of the pheromone were not. The results are discussed wit ha vew to the probable conformations of these molecules.
