Kinetic Modeling: Predicting Accumulation of Non-Extractable Residues in Soil (limited time article download)
August 2, 2017 – The environmental fate of pesticides, particularly the fate of residues in soil, is of interest due to concerns over the potential long term impact of these bound residues. In a recent article published in Science of the Total Environment, kinetic modeling is applied to environmental risk assessments for non-extractable residues (NER).
Co-authored by EAG Laboratories scientists Sara Whiting and Brett Clark, along with DuPont Crop Protection scientist Dr. Minli Zhang, the article, “Application of kinetic modeling to predict the fate of two indoxacarb metabolites and their bound residues in soil” is available for free download only until September 15, 2017: https://authors.elsevier.com/a/1VSHgB8ccclwU
The article details the adsorption and metabolism of two indoxacarb metabolites found in soil. It describes the application of kinetic modeling to elucidate the metabolic pathway in soil, as well as the application of kinetic modeling for non-extractable residues (NER) degradation analysis. The authors also discuss the potential of NER kinetic modeling in environmental risk assessment.
