Background & History

  • First published information on pesticide NER in 1964 [1]
  • First official definition in 1975 by the American Institute of Biological Sciences – Environmental Task Group
  • Quantification possible with 14C-labelled test substance only following combustion and liquid scintillation counting
  • Process leading to reduced compound (bio)availability and decelerated degradability
  • Transient stabilisation which may lead to subsequent slow release
