Abstract

<p>2-Methylheptadecane (<i>I</i>) is the sex pheromone of the family <i>Arctiidae</i> (tiger moth) and was isolated by Roelof and Carde and assigned structure <i>I</i> on the basis of spectral data. Haque et al. isolated a granular white solid (m.p. 80 °C) from the ether extract of dried and powdered plant of <i>Parthenium hysterophorous</i> L. (<i>Compositae</i>) and proposed its structure, 14-methylpentadecan-3-one (<i>II</i>) on the basis of spectroscopic data. We report herein a short and facile synthesis of these compounds.
