Abstract: The compound l,3,3-trimethyl-2-oxabicyclo [2,2,2] octane, more commonly known as cineole or eucalyptol, present in bay leaves, is a natural repellent to the American cockroach, Periplaneta amerkana L. It was found that the isopropyl-oxygenisopropyl fragment of the compound is the smallest effective portion, and that the cyclohexane plus oxygen subgroup has the greatest effectiveness.
