General description

cis-2-Hexen-1-ol is a green leaf volatile (GLV) that is commonly found in herbaceous plants and angiosperm trees. In combination with other GLVs, cis-2-hexen-1-ol may disrupt the response of conifer-infesting ambrosia beetle to the host pheromone and kairomones. This ability makes it a promising candidate for the development of log protectants against ambrosia beetles.
