Abstract:A total of 293 carbanilates, benzamides, aliphatic and alicyclic amides, and imides were tested for effectiveness as space repellents against yellow-fever mosquitoes, Aedes aegypti (L.). Four carbanilates, 2 benzamides, and 1 acetamide gave more than 100 days of protection. N,N-Dipropyl 2-[(p.methoxybenzyl) oxy]acetamide is the most effective space repellent found to date; it gave 266 days of protection.
