Biologically Active Natural Products: Agrochemicals

Natural products that have both plant growth regulatory properties and pharmaceutical properties are examined in this book. This is the first and most up-to-date text linking agrochemistry and pharmaceutical chemistry in an easy to read presentation for practitioners in both fields. Due to the intense and widespread attention being given to the undesirable side-effects of commercial herbicide products such as residual contamination, resistance, ecosystem impairments, and waste generation, the discovery of new, natural herbicides that are biologically safe will prove to be significant and profitable. Featuring over 200 tables, Biologically Active Natural Products: Agrochemicals is very useful to those in the agrochemical and pharmaceutical industries, as well as those in biochemistry, plant pathology, and natural products study and development.
