Pesticide Chemistry and Bioscience:
The Food-Environment Challenge

G.T. Brooks and T. Roberts, eds.

Special Publication No. 233
The Royal Society of Chemistry, 1999 [ISBN 0-85404-709-3]

Pesticide chemistry has seen many remarkable changes and advances in recent years. Further challenges must be faced to progress the subject and this book, produced as a result of the 9th IUPAC Congress of Pesticide Chemistry and written by leading international experts, reports on the need to produce high quality food whilst satisfying environmental concerns. Including new material on Natural Products, Mode of Action and Metabolism, Pesticide Chemistry and Biosciences updates all the key areas in pesticide chemistry and related activities. Together, the contents outline the revolution in the approaches to crop protection and our abilities to develop complex, environmentally acceptable strategies for weed, pest and disease control.

This collection of current expert views and findings will be of immense interest to researchers and professionals working in the environment of pesticide chemistry.


Plenary Lectures; Synthesis and Structure-Activity Relationships; Delivery; Natural Products; Mode of Action and Resistance; Metabolism; Environmental Fate; Residues in Food and the Environment; Regulation and Risk Assessment; Subject Index.
