About this book

The importance of understanding the metabolism of agrochemicals in plants has never been greater. In a world where food safety and environmental concerns are increasing, knowledge of the metabolic processes within plants and the terminal residues of agrochemicals in food crops is invaluable. Written by experts in the agrochemical industry and academia, Metabolism of Agrochemicals in Plants is the first text to give systematic coverage of this important topic. This text brings together the current status of the subject with chapters on regulatory considerations, comparative metabolism of plants and animals, and the different phases of metabolism. Including new and novel research in primary metabolism, herbicide metabolism and bound residues, this work is unique and thoroughly up to date. This is an essential text for chemists and biochemists working in the agrochemical and pharmaceutical industries and academia as well as analytical chemists, regulatory chemists and environmental scientists. Metabolism of Agrochemicals in Plants is a volume in the Wiley Series in Agrochemicals and Plant Protection. This series brings together current scientific and regulatory knowledge and perspectives on all aspects of the use of chemicals and biotechnology in agriculture.
