Abstract: Based on the molluscicidal activity of ginkgolic acids (GAs) isolated from Ginkgo biloba L, a series of Z/E isomers of GA analogues were prepared and evaluated for their molluscicidal activities against the host snail Oncomelania hupensis. The results and analysis of the structure-activity relationship revealed that the E-isomers showed better molluscicidal activities than their Z-isomers. Molluscicidal activities decreased with the shortening of the alkenyl chain lengths.
