Abstract

In the early 1980s, an important discovery was made by Shell researchers when the insecticidal activity of heterocyclic nitromethylene compounds was found (Soloway et al. 1979). After an intensive optimization program, Nithiazin was identified as the most active compound (Figure 1). However, this product was not commercialized. This new chemical class subsequently attracted much attention as a potential tool for insect control, and was taken up by several companies such as Bayer, Takeda, Nippon Soda, Agro Kanesho, Mitsui Toastu and Ciba (since 1996; Novartis).
