Methyl Bromide is widely used as a fumigant in agriculture, horticulture and the preservation of structural materials, although its effect on the ozone layer is currently a major environmental issue. This book brings together all strands of the methyl bromide debate, covering manufacture, toxicity, environmental effects, substitutes and pest control functions.
The four chapters covering the chemistry and mammalian toxicology of the compound, its effects on target organisms, uses in storage practice, uses in storage practice, and alternative method sof preventing infestation and spoilage are written by scientists with established reputations in the fields of fumigation and food storage practice from this institution. What makes the book particularly useful is the juxtaposition of these chapters with contributions from leading experts in atmospheric ozone depletion and environmental analysis (in both the chemical and political sense).
