Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"Seldom can so much data be found in a single volume and be so clearly presented and well-referenced. Thirty-six contributors […] have produced what can be regarded as one of the most comprehensive guides to microbicides ever compiled. [...] This impressive volume is destined to become an essential reference book for all those with an interest in the formulation and application of microbicides." (David Karsa, Chemistry World, 2:7, July 2005)
