Contents Notes
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 assesment. "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 Bioscience updates all of the key areas in pesticide chemistry and related activities." "This collection of current expert views and findings will be of immense interest to researchers and professionals working in the environment of pesticide chemistry."--Jacket.
