Enhancement of photoalteration of cyclodiene insecticide chemical residues by rotenone.

Abstract

When applied at low concentrations to plant foliage, rotenone catalyzes the photoisomerization of dieldrin and other cyclodiene insecticide chemical residues. This finding of a new type of interaction between pesticide chemicals suggests the possibility of controlling the persistence of residues on plants by use of certain pesticide-photosensitizer… (More)
