As one of the most important sanitation pests worldwide, German cockroach (Blattella germanica L.) is difficult to control. Insect sex pheromones are safe and efficient attractants used in integrated pest management. The sex pheromone of German cockroach had been identified as blattellaquinone. The instability hampered the application of this compound. In order to find new and stable structures, a number of analogues were designed and synthesized by modification of the quinone ring (A), aliphatic terminal (B) and ester group (C) of blattellaquinone. The structures were confirmed by 1H NMR, IR spectra and HRMS analysis.

Key words: Blattella germanica, blattellaquinone, sex pheromone analogues, synthesis
