Pesticides Micrograph Collection

Pesticides Micrograph Collection

The Molecular Expressions Pesticides Collection contains over 50 common pesticides that have been recrystallized and photographed under the microscope. These are presented here to demonstrate the irony between the beautiful patterns generated by crystallized pesticides and the dangerous nature of their mechanism of action. We hope that you enjoy your visit. The Pesticide links below lead to progressive JPEG images of the "drugs for bugs" that range in size from about 35 Kb up to about 85 Kb.
