General description

Methyl 5-methylsalicylate is an ester. It acts as ligand and forms novel nonanuclear Tb(III) clusters. The photophysical properties of these clusters have been studied.

Application

Methyl 5-methylsalicylate is the suitable reagent employed in study for the identification of a pheromone component in parasitoid wasp Spalangia endius. It may be used for the synthesis of 2,6-dimethylchromanone.

The photophysical properties of the novel nonanuclear Tb(III) clusters Tb-L1 and Tb-L2 involving the ligands methyl 4-methylsalicylate (L1) and methyl 5-methylsalicylate (L2) are reported. The position of the methyl group has an effect on their photophysical properties. The prepared nonanuclear...

Sex-pheromone-related behavior and chemistry were studied in the wasp Spalangia endius Walker (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae), a pupal parasitoid of the house fly, Musca domestica L. (Diptera: Muscidae). Males responded behaviorally to female extracts by arrestment, whereas females did not arrest to...
