ABSTRACT
There are a variety of pesticides that are used to control the pests in agricultural lands and other places. Newer pesticides, developed as an alternative to highly toxic organophosphates such as imidacloprid including other neonicotinoid compounds, are being increasingly used considering their less harmful effects in case of human exposures. Though it is considered relatively safer to human beings, it can lead to potentially life-threatening complications and acute poisoning with these compounds may be fatal in large ingestion. We report a case of poisoning with imidacloprid compound presenting with a variety of systemic features including respiratory failure and patient's improvement with conservative management.

    A new class of optically active 2-pyrrolidinones was synthesized, starting from S-pyroglutamic acid, a well known natural chiral synthon. The synthetic design followed led to the insertion of various substituents at positions 1 and 5 of the 2-pyrrolidinone ring, including the imidazole moiety....
