 Nobel prize was awarded to Paul Muller in 1948.
 Stomach & Contact insecticides, Non phytotoxic except cucurbits.
 Long residual action, Oral LD50 for rat is 113-118mg/Kg.
BHC (Benzene Hexacholiride) 1,2,3,4,5,6-Hexachlorocyclohexane
 First prepared by Michael Faraday in 1825
 Van De Linden discovered four isomers in 1912
 Highly purified product containing 99% of gamma isomer of HCH (Hexa Chloro Cyclohehane) is know as
LINDANE in honor of Van De Linden in 1949.
 Stomach & Contact insecticides.
 Lindane is more volatile than DDT & has fumigant action .
 Extensively used as a soil insecticides against termite, white grubs etc.
b) Cyclodine compounds
 It is a collective group of synthetic cyclic hydrocarbons.
 Act as neurotoxicants, Which disturb the balance of Sodium & Potassium ions within the neuron resulting tremors,
Convulsions, Prostration & ultimately death of insects.
 Important insecticides : Chlordane, Heptachlor, Aldrin, Dieldrin, Endrin & Endosulfan.
Aldrin : Persistent & non systemic soil insecticides.

 Effective against borers & Sucking pests.
 LD50 : 80-110 mg/Kg
c) Organophosphates
• OP group of insecticides came to lime light during 2nd world war.
• Insecticidal action of OP compounds was discovered by Gerhard schrader in 1942 in Germany.
• TEPP (Tetra Ethyl Pyro Phosphate), Parathion & Schraden-1st Systemic insecticides.
• Most effective and low residual effect.
• Important insecticides :
Malathion, Methyl parathion, Diazion, Dichlorovas(DDVP),
Quinalphos, Chloropyriphos, Phosphamidon, Dimethoate,
Profenophos, Phorate etc.
Classification of OP insecticides
 Phosphohalides & Cyanides : Ex : Sarine, Tabum, Soman.
 Phosphorothioates/ Phosphorodithioates :
Ex- Malathion, Phorate, Dimethoate, Disulfoton, Methyl Parathion.
 Phosphates : Ex : Dichlorovas, Phosphomidon, Monocrotophos.
 Phosphorothiolates : Ex : Profenophos, Methyl parathion.
 Phosphorothionate : Ex : Chloropyriphos, Quinalphos, Fenitrothion. Diazinon etc.
 Phosphoroamidate : Ex : Acephate, TEPP, Schradan.
 Among OP Dichlorovas shows a fumigant action.
 Chloropyriphos used against termite.
 Phorate widely used as Granular insecticides.
 Malathion- Safest insecticides.
Carbamate insecticides
 Carbamate insecticides are synthetic derivatives of Physostigmine commonly known as Eserine.
 it is a alkaloid extracted from the seeds of Calabar bean.
 They have systemic and contact action.
Carbamate insecticides are classified into
 Hetrocyclic carbamates : Ex- Isolan, Pyrolan.
 Napthyl carbamates : Ex- Carbaryl.
 Phenyl carbamates : Ex- Carbofuran.
 Oxime carbamates : Ex- Aldicarb, Methomyl.
• Widely used carbamate insecticide against borers- Carbofuran.
• Carbamate insecticide used against cockroach, flies, mosquitoes- Propoxar.
• Wide spectrum C. insecticide used against cotton pests- Carbaryl.
• Insecticide of Carbamate group which is highly toxic to mammals- Aldicarb.
• Carbamate insecticide which is used to control nematodes- Carbofuran.
SYNTHETIC PYRETHROIDES
 These are synthetic derivatives of natural pyrethrins.
 The main commercial source of pyrethrum is the mature flower of chrysanthemum .
 The high quality flowers contain up to 4 mg of pyrithrins.
 These are lipophilic compounds.

  • 10. Carbamate insecticides  Carbamate insecticides are synthetic derivatives of Physostigmine commonly known as Eserine.  it is a alkaloid extracted from the seeds of Calabar bean.  They have systemic and contact action. Carbamate insecticides are classified into  Hetrocyclic carbamates : Ex- Isolan, Pyrolan.  Napthyl carbamates : Ex- Carbaryl.  Phenyl carbamates : Ex- Carbofuran.  Oxime carbamates : Ex- Aldicarb, Methomyl.
  • 11. • Widely used carbamate insecticide against borers- Carbofuran. • Carbamate insecticide used against cockroach, flies, mosquitoes- Propoxar. • Wide spectrum C. insecticide used against cotton pests- Carbaryl. • Insecticide of Carbamate group which is highly toxic to mammals- Aldicarb. • Carbamate insecticide which is used to control nematodes- Carbofuran.
  • 12. SYNTHETIC PYRETHROIDES  These are synthetic derivatives of natural pyrethrins.  The main commercial source of pyrethrum is the mature flower of chrysanthemum .  The high quality flowers contain up to 4 mg of pyrithrins.  These are lipophilic compounds.  Developed for the purpose of more stable in light & air and insecticidal activity.  Synthetic pyrethroids have extremely high insecticidal activity at low doses & are bio-degradable in nature.  Very less toxic to mammals.  Pyrethroids are contact insecticides & less effective as stomach poison.
