Synthesis and Insecticide Activity of Octahydroquinazolinone derivatives

Document Type: Research Paper



A simple method for the synthesis of octahydroquinazolinone derivatives in the presence
of BF3.SiO2 and Insecticide activity of these compounds against spodoptera litura
was investigated to be comparable to commercial pyrethroid insecticides, Cypermethrin and
Cyhalothrin. The structure of the isolated compounds was characterized by 1HNMR and FT-IR spectroscopy.The proposed method had some advantages such as high yield, mild reaction condition, ease of operation and workup, high product purity and green process.
