Chemistry and Pharmacology
Compounds of the series PhnMe6-nSn2 were prepared and tested for their antifeedant effects against Spodoptera littoralis (Boisduval) and Epilachna varivestis (Mulsant) larvae. In addition, phytotoxicity towards bean seedlings was measured. The most active compound against both Spodoptera and Epilachna was Ph3Me3Sn2. The compound at 50 mg dm-3 was comparatively innocuous in phytotoxicity tests against bean seedlings.
