Our group deals with different aspects related with new insect pheromones, from structural characterization and synthesis of pheromones and analogues to the establishment of the attractant activity in the laboratory by electrophysiology techniques and behavioral bioassays and in the field. We are also engaged in the development of new alternative and non-contaminant methods of pest control, based on inhibition of the enzymes involved in the degradation of pheromone molecules in the insects antennae.
