Chirality in Agrochemicals Edited by Norio Kurihara, Radioisotope Research Center, Kyoto University, Japan and Junshi Miyamoto, Sumitomo Chemical Company, Osaka, Japan The importance of using optically pure compounds has long been recognized by the pharmaceutical industry. The discovery that opposite enantiomers can have similarly diverse effects on plants and insects has had no less a revolutionary impact on the agrochemical industry. Chirality in Agrochemicals, the first book dedicated to the topic, is written by experts from the agrochemical industry and academia, and discusses the synthesis, activity and toxicology of chiral agrochemicals, both those already on the market and those being researched. Chirality in Agrochemicals 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.
