Abstract: A mixture of stereoisomers of the corn rootworm pheromones was synthesised via the Grignard coupling of protected bromohydrins with alkylcuprate as a key step. The synthesis of 8-methyldec-2- yl propanoate (I ), the northern corn rootworm Diabrotica longicornis Say pheromone, was achieved from pentane-1,5-diol in four steps with an overall yield of 35.1 % and 10-methyltridecan-2-one (II ), the southern corn rootworm Diabrotica undecimpunctata howardi Barber pheromone, was synthesised from octane-1,8-diol as commercially available starting material in five steps with an overall yield of 28.7 %.

Keywords: Diabrotica longicornis Say – Diabrotica undecimpunctata howardi Barber – Grignard coupling – pheromone – bromohydrin – diol
