A pesticide is any substance or mixture of substances intended for preventing, destroying, repelling, or mitigating any pest. Most pesticides are designed to be toxic to their target pest and because any substance can be harmful if used improperly, pesticide use is strictly controlled. Environmental monitoring and reliable identification of pesticides in small amounts requires sophisticated analytical techniques such as mass spectrometry. To identify a pesticide, searchable mass spectral reference data is indispensible.This new 2009 collection includes 1,238 high quality mass spectra of pesticides such as:
  • insecticides
  • acaroids
  • nematicides
  • fungicides
  • rodenticides
  • molluscicides
  • repellents
The mass spectra are unreduced and experimental conditions present in the data record include chemical structure, CAS RN, synonym and systematic name, molecular weight, and molecular formula.
