Relationships between chemical structure and rat repellency. II. Compounds screened between 1950 and 1960; 1974; Report; Bowles, W. A.; Adomaitis, V. A.; DeWitt, J. B.; Pratt, J. J., Jr.

Summary

Over 4,600 compounds, chiefly organic types, were evaluated using both a food acceptance test (Part A) and a barrier penetration bioassay (Part B), to correlate relationships between chemical structure and rodent repellency.These chemicals are indexed and classified according to the functional groups present and to the degree of substitution within their molecular structures. The results of reduction in foot consumption for each compound appraised are calculated and their K values listed in Table I.The repellent activities of the functional groups represented, alone or in combinations, are expressed in Table II by a Functional Group Repellency Index. A ranking of these indices suggests that acyclic and heteroyclic compounds containing [...]
