Males of a variety of insects transfer an anti-aphrodisiac pheromone to females during mating that renders them less attractive to conspecific males. In cabbage white butterflies, the transfer of an anti-aphrodisiac can result in the unwanted attraction of tiny egg...

Many insects possess a sexual communication system that is vulnerable to chemical espionage by parasitic wasps. We recently discovered that a hitch-hiking (H) egg parasitoid exploits the antiaphrodisiac pheromone benzyl cyanide (BC) of the Large Cabbage White butterfly Pieris brassicae....

Enantiomerically enriched alpha,alpha-disubstituted phenylacetonitriles have been readily prepared by stereoselective quaternization of 2-alkyl-2-[2-(p-tolylsulfinyl)phenyl]acetonitriles with different alkylating electrophiles in the presence of bases. The use of potassium hexamethyldisilazane (KHMDS)/[18]crown-6 ether and NHMDS with alkyl halides afforded S,S(S) and R,S(S) diastereoisomers, respectively...

In the current study, kinetics of synthesis of 2-phenylvaleronitrile (PVN) was successfully carried out by selective C-alkylation of benzyl cyanide (BC) with n-bromopropane (BP) using aqueous KOH and catalyzed by TBAB under ultrasonic (300W) assisted organic solvent-free conditions. Selective monoalkylation...

Mechanisms of alkylation by PhCH(2)Cl or CH(3)I in THF and of deuteriation by DCl (4 N in D(2)O) in THF or THF-toluene of lithiated phenylacetonitrile monoanions and dianions obtained with LHMDS, LDA, or n-BuLi are studied by vibrational and NMR...
