Peroxidizing Herbicides ( II ) : Structure-Activity Relationship and Molecular Design

The p-nitrodiphenyl ethers (DPEs) and cyclic imides (Cyls), here called peroxidizing herbicides of the first generation (1965-1980), induce inhibi­ tion of chlorophyll biosynthesis and photooxidative destruction of plant membranes affecting photosynthetic pigment contents. The detailed mechanism of action of the peroxidizing herbi­ cides has been outlined… CONTINUE READING
