About this book

This edition is divided into two parts. In Part One, 23 contributions of worldwide selected experts present extensively diversified information about: microbicides with regard to the relationship between chemical structure and mode of action and activity, research and development in consideration of registration procedures, legislative aspects, and the use of microbicides in the major application areas (18) which are described in detail. The Microbicide Data is organized into 21 substance classes (e.g. alcohols, aldehydes, acids, amides, etc.) and collected in Part Two. Part One signifies an important perfection and increase in actuality. In part two, 'Microbicide Data' is an eagerly anticipated actual inventory of the "Handbook Microbicides for the Protection of Materials" which appeared in 1993. The combination of the two parts in one book is special and has resulted in the most authoritative information in the field.

From the reviews: "Seldom can so much data be found in a single volume and be so clearly presented and well-referenced. Thirty-six contributors [!] have produced what can be regarded as one of the most comprehensive guides to microbicides ever compiled. [...] This impressive volume is destined to become an essential reference book for all those with an interest in the formulation and application of microbicides." (David Karsa, Chemistry World, 2:7, July 2005)
