Abstract
Fourteen stereoisomeric mixtures of six oxazolidine heterocycles and one amino alcohol were obtained from commercial samples of (+)−, (−)−, or (±)-citronellol (2) and evaluated in a cloth test system as mosquito repellents. A technical sample of 3-acetyl-2-(2′, 6′-dimethyl-5′-heptenyl)oxazolidine (1), evaluated initially as a mixture of two pairs of enantiomers, was an effective repellent against two of the three species of mosquitoes. To study repellency-stereochemistry relationships, 1 was isolated as fractions G-1, G-2, I-1, and I-2, corresponding to representative samples of the four possible stereoisomers. The enantiomeric composition of 1, but not of the o...
