Project: Synthesis of new azaheterocyclic phosphonates and their action against noxious and resistant pest insects.

project duration
01-JAN-00 – 31-OCT-04
This project investigates the synthesis of new azaheterocyclic phosphonates and their potential as insect control agents. A lead strucuture and newly synthesized derivates will be tested in vivo against larvae of two worldwide important pest insects (armyworms and Colorado potato beetle). Simultaneous, an in vitro system will be developed with the use of in vitro cultured cell lines for screening the action of this new group of insecticide molecules. Besides, attention will given to their usefulness against resistant species.
