Title Collected data on herbicide toxicology
Original title Datensammlung zur Toxikologie der Herbizide [in German]
Bibliographic information Verlag Chemie GmBH, Postfach 1260/1280, 6940 Weinheim, Fed. Rep. of Germany, 4th instalment, 1983. Vol.2, 272p. Price: DM.160.00. (Complete publication: 866p.).
Abstract A loose-leaf collection published by the Pesticides Committee of the German Research Association (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft). A statement of the criteria involved in toxicological assessment of pesticides is followed by monographs on several herbicides, their applications, their toxicity to animals and man, and their metabolism or transformation in plants, soil and water. Each monograph is completed by a toxicological evaluation and a bibliography. The 4th supplement (see CIS 79-520) offers new or updated information on the following products: buturon, chlorotoluron, nitrofen, paraquat, trichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4,5-T), sodium trichloroacetate (TCA). The publication also contains information on 50 other products. Four compounds described in an appendix lacked sufficient published data for evaluation: bromoxynil, ioxynil, neburon and propyzamide (pronamide). The supplement concludes with an article on the principles of the determination of safety factors to be applied in assessing the harmfulness of herbicides.
