Collecting up-to-date research, this book covers a wide range of agrochemicals for controlling insects, mites, weeds, and plant and fungal diseases. It discusses structural-activity relationships in the design of new pest control agents and describes a variety of approaches to developing new agrochemicals. It provides an overview of the role of biotechnology in pest control, while detailing synthetic methodology used in preparing biologically active agrochemicals. It also covers natural chemicals with important agrochemical potential.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This volume contains 31 chapters on these general topics: agrochemicals and agricultural biotechnology in the 21st century...; imidazolinone herbicides...; control of weeds...; control of insects and acarids...; and control of plant fungi . . . Most chapters take the same approach, starting from a
lead molecule . . . to the synthesis and optimization of potential commercial compounds. In many cases the end result is a 'dead' project . . . It is, however, the road taken rather than the end result that makes many of the chapters interesting. . . . [T]he book's appeal lies mainly in the organic
syntheses described and the structure-activity work that directed the research. . . . The value of the book lies in its bringing together relevant examples from different subdisciplines of pesticide discovery . . . Applied scientists or university teachers with a chemical inclination will enjoy the
view of product development from a chemist's perspective."--The Quarterly Review of Biology
