9780123909299: Piperonyl Butoxide

Piperonyl Butoxide contains 20 chapters contributed by world experts in the field on the properties, uses, plant metabolism, and mammalian and environmental toxicology of piperonyl butoxide. The mode of action of piperonyl butoxide is discussed as well as many other specialist topics, including the measurement of synergism in the laboratory, and the potential use of this chemical alone for the control of whiteflies, as well as with insect growth regulators. This book will prove to be a valuable reference for all concerned with the designing of safe and cost-effective insecticide formulations, particularly those used in the home, industry, or on or near animals and food.

Review:

"The book contains 20 chapters and it would not be far wrong to say that not a single person who has made a contribution to PBO is absent from the list of contributors. Apart from such things as the properties, uses, plant metabolism, mammalian and environmental toxicology, and mode of action of PBO, also covered are such specialist subjects as the measurement of synergism in the laboratory, and the potential use of PBO alone to control whiteflies and its use with insect growth regulators. In addition, molecular modelling attempts to explain its value in formulations." --INTERNATIONAL PEST CONTROL "...a new reference book that covers not only environmental and mammalian toxicology, but also the uses and development of safe, cost-effective insecticides. The book results from several years of preparation to produce the definitive source of information on piperonyl butoxide." --PEST CONTROL

About the Author:
