AM1-type semiempirical quantum chemical calculations were carried out to explain differences in herbicidal activity between certain phenoxyacetic acid derivatives. It was found that the proper orientation and shape of the COOH group and the phenyl moiety both mutually and individually affected the observed activities.
Herbicides, phenoxyacetic acid derivatives, 2, 4-D, AM1 type calculations, weed killers.
