Pesticide Chemistry—3 provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of pesticide chemistry. This book discusses the development of pesticide industry and the progress in pesticide toxicology. Organized into 22 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the important findings with respect to the design of inhibitors of acetylcholinesterase. This text then reviews the statistical, analytical, toxicological, and philosophical role of pesticide residue analysis within the evaluation of environment and food problems. Other chapters consider the factors that influence the persistence of pesticides that are common to both soils and plants. This book discusses as well the insect anti-feeding substances contained in plant leaves, which are widely surveyed by monitoring with leaf-disc test. The final chapter deals with the biological tests necessary for investigating the biochemical and toxicity effects of pesticides to individual species in the plant and animal kingdom. This book is a valuable resource for environmentalists, residue chemists, residue analysts, toxicologists, and official crop protection experts.
