Abstract

Limonin and ten structurally modified limonins were evaluated as antifeedants against 4th instar larvae of the Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata Say, in no-choice leaf dics assays. The epoxide and furan groups were shown to be essential structural requirements for high antifeedant activity.
