EU funds insecticide synergist research

The European Commission has awarded a consortium of companies and research organisations some €1 million ($1.4 million) to develop insecticide synergists for agricultural, household and public health use. The EcoSyn project is aimed at cutting the amount of insecticides used to reduce their impact on beneficial insects such as bees. Based on the interactions of the established synergist, piperonyl butoxide, with metabolic enzymes in insect pests, new molecular structures will be designed, synthesised and evaluated on pests and beneficial insects using laboratory assays and field trials. The synthesis of these synergists will be evaluated with the aim of achieving an economically feasible industrial process.
