Pesticide Chemistry: Human Welfare and the Environment, Volume I: Synthesis and Structure-Activity Relationships covers the proceedings of the Fifth International Congress of Pesticide Chemistry. The book covers research topics that tackle both improved agricultural production and public health concerns. The papers presented in this volume are organized into three parts. The first part covers the plenary lectures that discuss the political, economic, and philosophical aspects of pesticides for human welfare and pesticide research for the improvement of human welfare. The second part discusses synthesis of pesticides and growth regulators, which include synthons, avermegtins, and pyrethroid. The third part tackles chemical structure and biological activities, such as structure-activity relationships in derivatives of anticholinesterase insecticides and the fungicidal activity of acyl anilines. The book will be of great interest to professionals and researchers whose work involves pesticides.
