Abstract : Extensive and excessive use of organic pesticides poses a serious threat to the environment. The degradation products of most organic pesticides are far more toxic than the parent compound. The toxic effect of common pesticides, their degradation mechanisms, and common detection techniques are evaluated here. A literature survey shows that a detailed discussion on this relationship is extremely relevant in the current scenario.
