Some isocyanide compounds are also toxic to parasites, and their effect on the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum is the best studied (Angerhofer and Pezzuto, 1992; Konig et al.
In the last few years many companies--particularly in the USA, Switzerland, and France--are very active in the MCR field, but only very few academic groups like those of Bossio, Curran, and Schreiber [6] have recently shown activity, although the chemistry of the isocyanide MCRs is one of the few areas of chemistry where still much progress can be made.

Related (disilene)palladium complexes with isocyanide ligands 75a, 75b, and 76 are synthesized by the reactions of 70b and 74 with the corresponding isocyanide (eqs [30] and [31]) in high yields.
Measuring the effect of ultraviolet light on methyl isothiocyanate's breakdown in the troposphere, where many sprayed particles end up, the chemists saw the pesticicle degrade into methyl isocyanide and atomic sulfur.

Among the published improvements is the addition of organic compounds like soluble starch (64) or carboxylates and isocyanides.
