New Book from The Royal Society of Chemistry

Metabolic Pathways of Agrochemicals, Part 2, Insecticides and Fungicides

Editors-in-Chief: Terry R. Roberts (JSC International Ltd., UK) and David H. Hutson (Consultant, UK). The Royal Society of Chemistry announces that Part 2 of its major reference source Metabolic Pathways of Agrochemicals is now available. Covering Insecticides and Fungicides, Part 2 complements Part 1, Herbicides and Plant Growth Regulators, which was published in 1998. Together, this two-volume publication provides comprehensive coverage of chemical degradation and metabolism of agrochemicals in soils, plants, and animals.

Containing information on over 300 chemicals currently in use, Part 2 also encompasses nematicides, rodenticides, insect growth modulators, and plant activators in addition to insecticides and fungicides. Part 2 contains details on all the important classes of active ingredients, including organophosphate and pyrethroid insecticides, azoles, and the newly developed strobilurin fungicides. Modulators of insect growth and behavior are discussed, as are the fates of most currently used rodenticides and nematicides. Organized by compound class and covering 40 years of literature, including previously unpublished information from agrochemical companies, Metabolic Pathways of Agrochemicals comprises the following:

  • separate entries for each pesticide
  • overviews of the metabolism of specific classes of agrochemicals
  • key similarities and significant differences between individual chemicals in the class
  • extensive bibliography
  • comprehensive, high-quality indexes (chemical/common name, CAS registry number, reaction type)

Compiled by a highly respected team of international editors, each part of Metabolic Pathways of Agrochemicals can be purchased individually or as a set.

The Royal Society of Chemistry is a learned and professional society with a worldwide membership of 46 000. It has as its main objective the advancement of the science of chemistry and its applications, and the maintenance of high standards of competence and integrity among practicing chemists. The society has been involved with the publication of scientific literature since 1841. Surplus cash generated from sales funds the promotion of chemistry.

ISBN: 0-85404-499-X; xxiv + 1 486 pages; Price: GBP 225.00; Hardcover, 1999.
