Green Trends in Insect Control

Overview

Green Trends in Insect Control presents the current approaches for insect pest control as a "green" alternative to classical and more toxic agrochemicals. An overview of the recent advances in insecticide chemistry is also included, which will be of interest to a vast group of researchers - agrochemists, biochemists, chemists and toxicologists. The combination of both chemical and toxicological aspects of insecticides is unique and the book includes contributions from synthetic chemists, entomologists, ...

Overview

Green Trends in Insect Control presents the current approaches for insect pest control as a "green" alternative to classical and more toxic agrochemicals. An overview of the recent advances in insecticide chemistry is also included, which will be of interest to a vast group of researchers - agrochemists, biochemists, chemists and toxicologists. The combination of both chemical and toxicological aspects of insecticides is unique and the book includes contributions from synthetic chemists, entomologists, environmentalists and toxicologists giving it wide appeal. Throughout the book, the different approaches that involve "greener chemicals" are emphasized. The book is divided into nine chapters, each considering the state-of-the-art of each family of insecticides, together with future expectations. Each chapter gives a description of useful biorational insecticides, highlighting environmentally-friendly processes and then the mode of action is fully-described, emphasizing selectivity towards targeted species. Finally, for every family of compounds, their environmental effects (toxicity, bioaccumulation and metabolism) is considered, comparing them to classical insecticides, including human and environmental risk assessments. The book also includes a general introduction to entomology, with special emphasis on those insects which act as vectors in the spread of diseases. Insects that may be potential pests against humans and livestock are included, focusing on their life cycles, and physiology. In addition there is a chapter on classical insecticides for comparison with current trends in pest control.

Meet the Author

Dr Ëscar L¾pez received his PhD at Seville University in 2003 under the direction of Professor José G Fernßndez-Bola±os, José Fuentes and Inés Maya. In March 2004, he was appointed as lecturer in Environmental Organic Chemistry at the University of Huelva, Spain. In June 2004, he was appointed as lecturer in Organic Chemistry at the University of Seville, Spain, in the Faculty of Chemistry. He spent 16 months (2005-2006) in a postdoctoral stay in Aarhus University, Denmark under the direction of Professor Mikael Bols working on the design of glycosidase inhibitors and the preparation of cyclodextrin derivatives as artificial enzymes. In 2009 he got a position as an Associate Professor in the Organic Chemistry Department, University of Seville, Spain. His research interests include Carbohydrate Chemistry, Heterocyclic Chemistry, Green Chemistry, Organoselenium Chemistry, Cyclodextrins and Supramolecular Chemistry, Glycosidase Inhibitors and Antioxidants. Professor José G Fernßndez-Bola±os completed his PhD at Seville University in 1984, after working on the synthesis of C-nucleoside of imidazol, under the direction of Professor José Fernßndez-Bola±os, his father, and Professor José Fuentes. He spent one year in a postdoctoral stay at the Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby, working on the synthesis and conformational analysis of sterically hindered oligosaccharides, under the direction of Professor Klaus Bock. He got a position as Professor at Seville University in 1987, and is currently a Professor of Organic Chemistry. His research interests include Carbohydrate Chemistry, Heterocyclic Chemistry, Green Chemistry, Organoselenium Chemistry, Cyclodextrins, Antioxidants from natural sources and Alkaloid Insecticides.
