By activating the cpA neuron, cyclopentanone served as a powerful lure, like CO2, attracting mosquitoes to a trap.
They pursued two compounds for additional study: ethyl pyruvate, a fruity-scented compound that neutralized cpA neurons' ability to detect and reduced attraction to human foot odor; and cyclopentanone, a minty-smelling compound that activated the cpA neurons similarly to CO2 and attracted mosquitoes to a trap.
Ethyl pyruvate is a fruity smelling flavour agent used in foods that inhibits cpA, while cyclopentanone is a minty-smelling compound that activates cpA.
When cyclopentanone (CPT) was used, the average transmittance of all three coatings is almost the same, but higher than the polyimide (see Fig.

SYNTHESIS AND STRUCTUAL CHARACTERIZATION OF CYCLOPENTANONE THIOSEMICARBAZONES 6.
Chiral 1,2,3-substituted cyclopentanone 2 has an appropriate substitution pattern for the synthesis of 9,11-secosterol D-ring synthon.
He separated and identified 28 ketones, including cyclopentanone, cyclohexanone, benzophenone, acetophenone, hexen-5-one-2, penten-3one-2.
Cyclopentanone, cyclohexanone, cyclopheptanone, cyclooctanone, cyclodecanone, and cyclododecanone were utilized.
Their characteristic features show a chelated dihydroporphyrin nucleus, a cyclopentanone ring and a phytyl ester grouping.
Recently the photochemical decabonylation of cyclopentanone to produce tertramethylene diradicals has been studied on the femptosecond timescale.
