Modern agriculture production depends considerably on the use of herbicides to control weeds in crops. Many herbicides are potentially toxic to higher animals. The increasing use of herbicides exerts their toxic effects through repeated exposure. The azomethine group containing herbicides were introduced in agriculture in 1954. The azomethine group containing herbicides are used worldwide as selective pre and post emergence herbicides.
Fenclorim (4, 6-dichloro-2-phenylprimidine) is abroad spectrum herbicide used to control of weeds. Luciano et al. studied the influence of fenclorim on glutathione S-transferase (GST) activity in plants by using UV-Vis spectro photometry. Zhang Q, Riechers DE reported protamic methods such as two dimensional gel electrophoresis and LC-MS to identify the residues of fenclorim in triticumtauschi.
