Novel use of deodorizing compounds as mosquito repellents

The Need

Insect-borne diseases, such as dengue fever, chikungunya fever, malaria, yellow fever, and Zika virus, continue to pose significant health risks worldwide. With the drawbacks of existing repellents, there is a pressing commercial need for innovative and effective compounds and compositions to develop novel mosquito repellents. These new solutions must not only be highly efficient in repelling insects but also safe for human use and environmentally friendly.

The Technology

The disclosed technology offers a breakthrough in insect repellents, presenting compounds and compositions specifically designed to address the shortcomings of existing solutions. Notably, the deodorizing compounds PTG-MSQ100, PTG-MSQ200, and Ordenone® have been identified as effective mosquito repellents. These compounds work by masking human odors, thereby preventing mosquitoes from detecting and biting humans.

Commercial Applications

The technology's applications extend beyond personal protection against mosquitoes. It finds use in various commercial settings, including:

  • Personal Insect Repellents: Formulations containing PTG-MSQ100, PTG-MSQ200, and Ordenone® can be developed as advanced mosquito repellent products for individuals.
  • Public Health Programs: The technology can be incorporated into mosquito control strategies to reduce the transmission of mosquito-borne pathogens in affected regions.
  • Outdoor Apparel: Manufacturers can integrate the repellent compositions into clothing and outdoor gear, offering built-in insect protection to users.


The technology offers several advantages over traditional insect repellents:

  • Enhanced Efficacy: PTG-MSQ100, PTG-MSQ200, and Ordenone® have shown remarkable efficacy in repelling mosquitoes, providing stronger protection against bites.
  • Non-Toxic and Safe: The disclosed compositions are non-toxic to humans, making them safe for regular and prolonged use, even for children and sensitive individuals.
  • Environmentally Friendly: Unlike some existing repellents, these compounds are environmentally friendly, ensuring minimal impact on ecosystems.
  • Broad Applicability: The technology's versatility allows its integration into various formulations, including sprays, lotions, and fabric treatments, catering to diverse user preferences and needs.

Embrace the future of insect repellents with our cutting-edge technology, a significant step towards reducing mosquito-borne diseases and safeguarding public health while promoting sustainable solutions.
