e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services.

Development of metal-ion containing catalysts for the decomposition of phosphorothioate esters


The widespread use of phosphorothioate esters as agricultural pesticides, chemical weapons and mechanistic probes in enzymology has sparked interest in the reactivity of these thio-substituted analogues of phosphate esters. In this brief account, we summarize the recent developments in our understanding of the mechanisms of hydrolysis (and solvolysis in methanol) of phosphorothioates containing a sulfur atom in the bridging and/or non-bridging position. A small number of highly efficient catalytic systems containing the metal ions La(III), Pd(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II) have been developed to promote the degradation of the various classes of phosphorothioate esters. The mechanisms of the base promoted solvolytic reactions in water and methanol and those of the metal catalyzed cleavage are presented, as well as a discussion of the energetics of the catalytic processes and other salient features. The aim of this review is to provide the reader with a-contemporary physical organic description of phosphorothioate ester cleavage.
