The chemistry of ants. I. Terpenoid constituents of some Australian Iridomyrmex species

GWK Cavill, DL Ford and HD Locksley

Australian Journal of Chemistry 9(2) 288 - 293
Published: 1956


Terpenoid constituents have been isolated from the following Iridomyrmex ants. The known methylheptenone (11) and iridodial, a novel dialdehyde (C10H16O2), have been extracted from Iridomyrmex detectus (F.Sm.) and from I. conifer ((Forel). I. nitidus (Mayr.) has yielded iridolactone (C10H16O2). Iridodial is converted into iridolactone by the action of alkali. The isolation of iridomyrmecin (a lactone, C10H16O2) from I. humilis (Mayr.) confirms the original observation of Pavan (1949).
