Biomimetic and Hemisynthetic Pesticides


Pests are responsible for most losses associated with agricultural crops. In addition, due to the indiscriminate use of synthetic pesticides, several problems have arisen over the years, such as pest resistance and contamination of important planetary sources such as water, air and soil. This awareness regarding pest problems and environment has led to the search for powerful and eco-friendly pesticides that degrade after some time, avoiding pest persistence resistance, which is also pest-specific, non-phytotoxic, nontoxic to mammals, and relatively less expensive in order to obtain a sustainable crop production Biodegradable biomimetic pesticides can be a potential green alternative to the pest industry.
