Abstract: Examples are given to illustrate the use of chemical and/or enzymatic asymmetric reactions in the synthesis of the new pheromones of the broad-horned flour beetle, flea beetle, currant stem girdler and Colorado potato beetle. The relationships between stereochemistry and bioactivity among pheromones are summarized to emphasize biodiversity as revealed in pheromone perception.
