Abstract

The overall objective of this study was to explore the toxicity of benzoxazinone allelochemicals and their metabolites to Folsomia candida (Collembola: Isotomidae) (Willem, 1902). Experimental tests showed transformation products to have more pronounced toxicity than parent compounds. The underlying relationship between the chemical structure and toxicity was then studied using three-dimensional QSAR approaches, and results highlighted the role of the steric contribution.
