7-Tetradecyn-1-ol is the precursor to the sex pheromones, (Z)-7-tetradecenyl acetate and (Z)-7-tetradecenal, of the Holcocerus hippophaecolus (Sandthorn carpenterworm), Trichoplusia ni (Cabbage looper), Planotortrix excessana (Greenheaded leafroller) and Plusia festucae (Gold spot). Also, 7-Tetradecyn-1-ol allows access to (Z)-7-tetradecenol ((Z)-7-TDOL, Z-7-TDOL) which is an intermediate in the synthesis of (4E,11Z)-Sphingadienine-C18-1-phosphate which is a sphingoid base of sea cucumber cerebroside that may have cytotoxicity activity against human colon cancer cells.
