    This paper is a review of biocides used in historical herbaria collections, but also applied to many other types of artefacts. Herbaria with desiccated plants, composed of organic material combined with other organics, such as glues, pastes, and other cellulose-based and proteinaceous materials, are particularly vulnerable to pest infestation. Several chemical compounds have been used either to prevent the infestation or to fight the occurring pest attack. Most of them are now phased out or restricted in use and production. Biocides pose numerous threats both to the artefacts and people working in the heritage sector, such as conservators. This review provides a comprehensive list of biocides used in herbaria with references, chemical identification, and material characterisation, in particular regard to deterioration processes induced in artefacts. The review is a part of the project “Heritage preservation and ethnobotany. Analysis of the influence of conservation treatment on genetic material comprised in historic herbaria” (project no. 2014/13/N/HS2/03118) funded by the National Sciencec Centre in Poland.
