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 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
