A simple route has been developed for the preparation of the optimal isomeric mixture of 3, 13-octadecadien-1-yl acetates /ODDA/ which is the active sex pheromone of many Synanthedon species. The stereocontrolled formation of double bonds have been achieved via Wittig reaction and subsequent reduction of C-C triple bond.
