Aryloxalkylcarboxylic acids and their derivatives

  • N. N. Melnikov


The insecticidal properties of the aryloxyalkylcarboxylic acids and their derivatives that have been studied are insignificant, but many compounds of this group are herbicides, fungicides, and plant growth regulators. The aryloxyalkylcarboxylic acids have the greatest value as herbicides and plant growth regulators. With respect to their scale of manufacture and use, they occupy first place among compounds of all classes. There is a trend toward further growth in the production of this important group of herbicides.
