Metabolic Pathways of Agrochemicals

This major new reference source was launched at the 9th IUPAC Congress on Pesticide Chemistry held in London, 2-7 August 1998. The two-volume publication provides comprehensive coverage of the chemical degradation and metabolism of agrochemicals in soils, plants, and animals. Organized by compound class for ease of use, and covering 40 years of literature, it comprises:

  • 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

Editor-in-Chief Terry Roberts, of JSC International Ltd, and his team of international experts have extensive experience in the field. Part 1, available now, covers Herbicides and Plant Growth Regulators, while Part 2 will feature Insecticides and Fungicides.
