Another study tested the efficacy of BioUD (active ingredient 2-undecanone synthesized from wild tomato plants) against I.
landolti have been previously identified in the MG of other Attini ants from the genus Trachymyrmex and Cyphomyrmex (Crewe & Blum 1972), with the exception of the compounds 2-nonanol, 3-decanone, 3-undecanone, 2-undecanone and 2-undecanol (Table 2).
In one study, Bohbot and Dickens sought to determine how the repellents DEET, 2-undecanone, IR3535, and picaridin produce their effects against the yellowfever mosquito.
It has been reported that the major components of Ruta are: 2-Undecanone, Nonanone, Decanone [1,2,6,16,21,24] apart from the essential oils of Ruta chalepensis L from Greece where the main component was 2-methyloctyl acetate (44.
4% of 2-Undecanone exhibited a very high antibacterial effect against all strains bacteria.
For example, a post-production essential oil extract was analyzed using GC/TOF-MS techniques and the low-level contaminant 2-Undecanone was detected.
Although the ability to perform this photoreaction of 2-undecanone may not itself prove of practical importance, Guillet says the work demonstrates the principle of using solar energy to carry out organic chemical reactions in water.
Electrically neutral organic molecules such as naphthalene (a chemical used for repelling moths and for making dyes, solvents and lubricants), 2-undecanone and the long carbon chains in vegetable oil do not mix well with water.
Guillet's team used two types of molecular building blocks to construct photozymes to gather light energy, in this case for catalyzing a reaction involving 2-undecanone.
Following standards were used: Hexadecane, 3-octanol, hexanal, pentadecane, 3-hexene-1-ol, 2-undecanone, 2- heptanone, butanal, 2-nonanone, 1-heptanal, furaldehyde, 3methyl-1-butanol, trans-3-hexene-1-ol, octanal and decanal.
While only 8 compounds were identified as 3-hexen-1-ol for peak 2, octanal for peak 9, 3-octanol for peak 10, 2-nonanone for peak 11, decanal for peak 13, 2-undecanone for peak 15, pentadecane for peak 18 and hexadecane for peak 20.
