New pesticide names added to BCPC’s Online Pesticide Manual

The names for 14 new pesticide active ingredients have been approved by the International Organization for Standardization’s (ISO) and added to BCPC’s Online Pesticide Manual, according to a news release issued by NIAB in the UK.

The ISO’s Technical Committee of Common Names for Pesticides assign shorter, more distinctive, active ingredient names than their original chemical name for newly approved pesticides.

The ISO common names for the new active ingredients include seven herbicides:

  • benquitrione from Shandong Cynda (Chemical) Co,
  • dioxopyritrione from Syngenta CropProtection, 
  • bipyrazonecypyrafluonefenpyrazone and tripyrasulfone from KingAgroot,
  • rimisoxafen from FMC Corp.

The five fungicide active ingredients include:

  • BASF’s flufenoxadiazam,
  • Adama Makhteshim’s flumetylsulforimfluoxytioconazole 
  • metarylpicoxamid from Corteva Agriscience
  • seboctylamine from Shandong Shenbon Greenland Chemical Co., Ltd.

The final two are a new insecticide; spidoxamat from Bayer CropScience and a plant growth regulator; anisiflupurin from Syngenta Crop Protection.

Further details on the 14 new pesticides, including chemical structure, CAS (Chemical Abstract Service) and International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) names, textural structural identifiers and patents, on these new pesticides are now included in BCPC’s Online Pesticide Manual. More data will be added as it becomes available on

BCPC’s Online Pesticide Manual is a global database of over 1,500 active ingredients and more than 10,000 product names. It includes detailed information on the chemical structure, target site of action, field of use, resistance code, chemical class and a wide range of physiochemical parameters. The Manual is relevant to a global audience and is an indispensable tool for academics, researchers, manufacturers, regulators, pest control advisers, and students. Entries include herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, acaricides, nematicides, plant growth regulators, herbicide safeners, repellents, synergists, rodenticides and ectoparasiticides.

An annual subscription to BCPC’s Online Pesticide Manual costs £400 + VAT and offer powerful search and export functions across a wide range of criteria including:

  • IUPAC, Chemical abstract names, CAS RN, EPA pesticide code
  • EC Number and development codes
