New Book from The Royal Society of Chemistry

Pesticide Chemistry and Bioscience: The Food—Environment Challenge.

Edited by G. T. Brooks and T. R. Roberts. Hardcover, 1999, ix + pp. 1—438. Special Publication No. 233, ISBN 0-85404-709-3.

Pesticide chemistry has seen many remarkable changes and advances in recent years. Further challenges must be faced to advance the field, and this book, produced as a result of the 9th IUPAC International Congress of Pesticide Chemistry (held in London 2—7 August 1998) and written by leading international experts, reports on the need to produce high-quality food while satisfying environmental concerns. Including new material on natural products, chemical synthesis, mode of action, metabolism, resistance, regulation, and risk assessment, Pesticide Chemistry and Bioscience updates all of the key areas in pesticide chemistry and related activities. Together, the contents outline the revolution in approaches to crop protection and in 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 field of pesticide chemistry.
