J Chem Ecol. 1989 Feb;15(2):581-90. doi: 10.1007/BF01014702.The sex pheromone ofCydia toreuta (Grote), the eastern pine seedworm, was investigated using electroantennogram (AG) measurements, gas chromatography (combined GC-FID-EAD) measurements, and field tests. (E,Z)-8,10-dodecadienyl acetate (E,Z8,10-12:Ac) and (E,E)-8,10-dodecadienyl actetate (E,E8,10-12: Ac) produced both the highest EAG and EAD responses. Only a single antennal stimulatory peak was observed when female abdominal tip extracts were analyzed by GC-FID-EAD, which corresponded exactly with that of authenticE,Z8,10-12: Ac. Read More
