Previously, the development of new agrochemicals has begun on the chemist's bench, screened via bioassays, and brought to the marketplace following field trials. Since the evolution of molecular, combinatorial and green chemistry techniques, our approach to new discoveries in agrochemicals hasfundamentally changed. The availability of biopesticides, transgenic crops, natural products, pest control agents with innovative modes of action and structures that allow rapid conversion to nontoxic metabolites allows us to use these products in a sustainable and effective manner called "bestmanagement strategies." These tools have issued in a new generation of pest control based on human safety, environmental stewardship, and resistance management.New Discoveries in Agrochemicals will overview each of these technologies and present findings from leading international academic and industry researchers. This book covers the following topics: biopesticides and transgenic crops, combinatorial chemistry, mode of action, natural products, greenchemistry, and human vector control.
