Homosesquiterpene alarm volatile (E,E)-4,8,12-trimethyl-1,3,7,11-tridecatetraene (E-TMTT) available from Pherobank BV

After the unusual acyclic C11 homoterpene (E)-DMNT, Pherobank has synthesised the C16 homosesquiterpene (E)-TMTT {(E,E)-4,8,12-trimethyl-1,3,7,11-tridecatetraene} as well.

E-TMTT is also emitted by plants as a response to herbivore attack.
