Research associated with the development of new agricultural pesticide formulations centers around the design of products that provide highly effective and specific action towards the target organism with reduced application rates. It is estimated that 30% of the pesticides on the market today have optical isomers. However, the desired activities often result from one single enantiomer in the optical isomer mixtures.
