The traditional use of insecticides continues to be practised in the control of insect populations, the newer methods such as the application of pheromones in the crop protection have gained prominence in the recent years. Since the pheromones have to be made available synthetically for the application in fields, their synthesis has attracted considerable attention and played a vital role in their overall development in the integrated pest management. Various approaches have successfully been made for the preparation of different pheromones and in this process a number of new methodologies have also been worked out.
