This scientific book is about the toxic effects of carbamates, which have a functional carbonyl group, and how these effects can be eliminated. It is aimed to provide knowledge to all scientists related to this field. Although carbamates are generally considered to be pesticides, significant amounts of carbamates are used as medicine. This book contains eight chapters that examine carbamates from a variety of perspectives, including the latest research in this field. Chapter One comprehensively studies the chemical structure of carbamates used as drugs and the poisoning of carbamates. Chapter Two discusses how to develop cheap and efficient modes of remediation from the environment. Chapter Three highlights the important role of microorganisms in the degradation of carbamates. Chapter Four focuses on especially biodeterioration of carbamates by fungi. Chapter Five examines the probiotic microorganisms as detoxification tools in the degradation and transformation of carbamates. Chapter Six reviews the genetic risk that may occur as a result of exposure to carbamate pesticides in living things. Chapter Seven explains the genetic biomarkers that help determine the management of chronic pesticide toxicity by determining different gene polymorphisms in agricultural workers as a result of long-term contact with carbamates. Chapter Eight thoroughly studies the clinical information about intoxication that may arise as a result of carbamate group exposure.
