Biological Activity and Component Analysis on Body Surface Extracts of Adult Tessaratoma Papillosa
Preliminary results of petri dish bioassay showed that n-hexane and ether extracts of body surfaces of female and male Tessaratoma papillosa (Drury) were significantly attractive to the opposite sex and the same sex respectively. EAG results also demonstrated that both two kinds of solvent extracts could induce the EAG responses of adult T. papillosa. Sixteen components were identified and isolated from the extracts of adult T. papillosa body surfaces by gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer (GC-MS), of which tridecane was the common component of females and males and had the highest relative amount. In addition to three kinds of straight-chain alkanes which were undecane, dodecane and tridecane, there were other components such as (Z)-2,2-dimethyl-3-hexene, 2-hexen-1-ol acetate, (E)-2-hexen-1-ol acetate, 2,3,3-trimethyl-1-butene and 1-tridecene and others.
