|Abstract:||Approximately 100,000 workers of the termite, Reticulitermes speratus (Kolbe) were extracted with n-hexane to isolate trail pheromone. The extract was purified by silica gel column chromatography, normal phase HPLC and gas chromatography. Its trail-following activity was coincidentally examined by bioassays. The complete chemical structure of the pheromone was determined as (Z,Z,E)-3,6,8-dodecatrien-1-ol (DTE-OH) by means of instrumental analyses in conjunction with several micro-chemical reactions. Sternal gland extracts also contained DTE-OH, when analyzed by capillary gas chromatography mass spectrometry high resolution sleected ion monitoring (GC-MS-HR-SIM).|
