A synthesis of 2-methyl-6-vinylpyrazine was carried out by way of a ‘one pot’ reaction. In order to establish the efficiency of this synthesis the extraction of the volatiles released by male papaya fruit flies was performed by SPME (solid phase micro-extraction). The compound was separated and identified using GC/MSD (gas chromatography/mass spectrometry detector). View Full-Text
