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.

From the Back Cover:

The unique insecticidal and repellant properties of the six esters occurring in the pyrethrum daisy have been utilised commercially for over 160 years. However, as supply of pyrethrum extract is limited and costly, scientists have searched since 1937 for chemical additives to increase its effectiveness, known as synergists. Piperonyl butoxide is the most successful insecticide synergist and is added to numerous pesticide formulations, increasing the efficacy of many other insecticides as well as pyrethrum.
This book 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 specialist subjects, such as the measurement of synergism in the laboratory, and the potential use of this chemical for the control of whiteflies alone, and with insect growth regulators. In addition, molecular modelling attempts to explain its value in formulations.
The foreword is written by Professor John Casida who has overseen extensive synergist research at the University of California.
Piperonyl Butoxide will prove to be a valuable reference book for all concerned with the design of safe and cost effective insecticide formulations, particularly those used in the home, industry, and on or near animals and food.

About the Author:

The preface of the book is written by Professor Casida, who has done much of the pioneering research in the field, and was recently elected to the Royal Society.
