The anti-acetylcholinesterase, larvicidal, antifeedant activities and general toxicity of 15 semisynthetic eugenol derivatives based on clove oil (including the own oil), were evaluated against the maize armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E. Smith). Therefore, promising eugenol molecules were classified with larvicidal, anti-acetylcholinesterase and antifeedant activities for controlling this pest. During structure–activity relationship studies and physicochemical profile analysis, it was found that among tested molecules 1-15, eugenol 1, prenyl eugenol 4, isoeugenol 8 and isoeugenol acetate 11 exhibited lethal effects LD50 at concentrations < 1 mg/g of insect. On the other hand, eugenol 1, metallyl eugenol 3, isoeugenol 8 and isoeugenol acetate 11 showed a good antifeedant activity (CE50 =158-209 μg/mL) with a high antifeedant index (70-78 %) at concentration 1000 μg/mL, possessing a weak antiacetylcholinesterase activity (IC50 = 21-31 g/mL). According to their ecotoxicological profiles (LC50 = 2033.1-6303.8 μg/mL on Artemia salina larvae), isoeugenol 8 and its acetate derivative 11 could be potential used in control of the growth, feeding, or reproduction of S. frugiperda larvae, acting as moderate insecticidal acetylcholinesterase inhibitors and/or antifeedant molecules. Such structure–activity relationship studies could stimulate the identification of lead structures from natural sources for the development of larvicidal and deterrent products against S. frugiperda and related insect pests.
