Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Detailed review on enantioselective synthesis of methyl (IR)-trans-chrysanthemate and related methyl (IR)-cis-deltamethrinate is presented. These commercially available esters of vinylcyclopropanecarboxylic acids belong to pyrethroids class of insecticides. They are used as single enantiomers for domestic and agricultural purpose. They are almost 3.5 10 more active than DDT and are biodegradable.
