Compendium of Pesticide Common Names

Classification of Pesticides

Acaricides Algicides Avicides / Bird Repellents
Bactericides Fungicides Herbicide Safeners
Herbicides Insect Attractants (Semiochemicals) Insect Chemosterilants
Insect Repellents Insecticides Mammal Repellents
Molluscicides Nematicides Nitrification Inhibitors
Plant Activators Plant Growth Regulators Rodenticides
Synergists Virucides Miscellaneous
Chemical Classes

These lists of pesticides, classified by biological activity and chemical structure, include all of the compounds in the Compendium of Pesticide Common Names.

Each major group of pesticides (e.g. herbicides or plant growth regulators) is subdivided into chemical or other classes (e.g. chloroacetanilide herbicides or auxins).

As an aid to navigating the larger groups (acaricides, fungicides, herbicides, insecticides, nematicides and plant growth regulators), there are summaries containing just the chemical classes and not the individual substances.

Individual compounds can have more than one use (activity) or classification.

Click the common name of any compound to see a data sheet with the status of the name, the IUPAC systematic name, the Chemical Abstracts systematic name and Registry Number, the molecular formula, the structural formula, and the group(s) and class(es) to which it belongs.
