N-aryl semicarbazones of 2-benzamidoindanone were prepared in order to investigate structures related to indoxacarb and the pyrazoline insecticides. The desired compounds were made from appropriately substituted indanones and found to be active against various Lepidoptera species. This poster will present the synthesis of these semicarbazone insecticides as well as their biological activity.
