Abstract: The objective of this study was to evaluate the toxicity piperine amide analogs to 3rd-instar larvae of Ascia monuste orseis Godart and Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E. Smith). The bioassays were based on the topical application of 0.5 µI of the following amides: N-isopenthyl-(3,4-metilenodioxiphenyl)-amide, N-isopropyl-(3,4-metilenodioxiphenyl)-amide, N-hexyl-3-(3,4-etilenodioxiphenyl)-amide and piperonyl butoxide. The DL50 (mg a.i./ mg larva) values of the amides N-isopropyl and N-hexyl to A. monuste orseis were 0,278 and 0,004, respectively, and to S. frugiperda were 1.359 and 0.613, respectively. The steeper slopes of the dose-response curves for both species were obtained with N-isopropyl, indicating the higher homogeneity of response of the pest species studied to this compound. N-isopropyl was also the most promising piperine synthetic analog as insecticide agent among the compounds studied because it was the most toxic amide to both insect-pest species.
