Abstract

Six oxime esters were synthesised and tested for their effectiveness as attractants of Periplaneta Americana cockroaches in the laboratory by the choice chamber method. The oxime esters of cinnamaldoxme, crotonaldoxime and vanilyl oxime formed from palmitoyl and oleoyl chlorides were found to be effective attractants for P. americana cockroaches. The receptor model proposed by others is used to explain this effectiveness.
