People working in development of drugs, pesticides, washing detergents, etc., are obliged by law to conduct analyses of the "metabolic pathways" or "maps" for the chemical compounds that they are using or proposing. Everyone in these industries or carrying out research toward such products is therefore interested in having a reference on these compounds. Key Features * Covers literature relating to degradation and metabolic profiles of molecules * Draws together the literature on degradation and metabolism patterns with that on diversified conditions of the environmental systems * Indicates 3D chemical structures, predicted physico-chemical parameters, logP and the SMILES chemical notations of the parent compounds to assist scientists design the lead compounds for new discovery using computer-aided technology

Annotation Based on literature (and some unpublished work provided by agrochemical companies), this sizable single volume provides a summary of data and information on the metabolism and chemical degradation of agrochemicals in soils, plants, and animals. Entries are organized by class of chemical and cover most commercially available chemicals in use today--including modulators of insect growth and behavior, rodenticides and nematicides. Introductions to each section provide an overview of the metabolism of each major class. The editors include independent consultants and researchers from JSC International Ltd., Shell Research Ltd., E.I. Du Pont de Nemours & Co., and IACR- Rothamsted. Annotation c.

This important publication provides a comprehensive summary of data and information on the metabolism and chemical degradation of agrochemicals in soils, plants and animals. Part 1, Herbicides and Plant Growth Regulators, and Part 2, Insecticides and Fungicides, together provide a major bibliography, as each entry is fully referenced. Contents include metabolic products, pathways and mechanisms, together with useful details on physico-chemical properties and mode of action. Both parts are organised by class of chemical for easy reference. There are separate entries for each pesticide, covering most commercially available chemicals in use today. In addition, an overview of the metabolism of each major class provides the reader with an informed summary of key similarities and significant differences between individual chemicals. Information is based primarily on literature from the past 40 years of research, together with some important, previously unpublished work provided by the agrochemical companies. Presented in a systematic, easy-to-read style, with extensive indexing to facilitate the rapid location of required information and the comparison of related compounds, Metabolic Pathways of Agrochemicals is an invaluable reference for chemists, biochemists and biologists working in the discovery, development and registration of agrochemicals, as well as scientists in related areas such as design and mode of action of pharmaceuticals.

At present environmental chemistry is becoming an increasingly popular subject in both under graduate and graduated education in the whole World and especially in all Asian countries. Different courses in ecology, chemistry, environmental science, public health, geography, biology, and environmental engineering all include this subject in their curriculum. Many textbooks have appeared in recent years aiming to fulfill these requirements; however, most of these books operate mainly with examples from developed countries of Europe, USA and Canada. Taking into account the geographic boundaries of environmental pollution that is especially pronounced in Asia and the specific peculiarities of pollution in developing countries, this textbook is supposed to close the gap by providing regionally oriented knowledge in basic and applied environmental chemistry.

Lebensmittelmonitoring - das von Bund und Ländern durchgeführte Untersuchungsprogramm - ergänzt die amtliche Lebensmittelüberwachung der Bundesländer. Lebensmittelüberwachung kontrolliert die Einhaltung lebensmittelrechtlicher Vorschriften v.a. durch verdachts- und risikoorientierte Untersuchungen. Das Lebensmittelmonitoring hingegen misst und bewertet - wiederholt und repräsentativ - den Gehalt unerwünschter Stoffe (z.B. Pflanzenschutzmittel, Schwermetalle) in und auf Lebensmitteln. Es erkennt Risiken für Verbraucher und stellt sie ab. 2005 wurden 5159 Proben von 50 Lebensmitteln bzw. -gruppen in- und ausländischer Herkunft untersucht.
