1. For a very evangelical approach, titled with due modesty :)
National Research Council (1992). _Neem: A Tree For Solving Global Problems_.
National Academy Press, Washington D.C. Pp. ix+141
2. For a couple of papers on insect control with neem oil:
Das, G.P. (1987) - _Trop. Grain Legume Bulletin_ No. 34 Pp. 14-15 + Erratum.
Jackai, L.E.N., Inang, E.E. & Nwobi, P. (1992) - _Trop. Pest Management_
3. For something on synthesis of the active molecule:
Aldhous, P. (1992) - _Science_ 258(5084): 893
This last is just a news item referring to the achievement of Ley _et al._
reported in the Royal Society of Chemistry's _Perkin Transactions 1._ in
"November" (1992 I assume).
Cheers, Ian S.
