"Systemic" types also kill the root to prevent regrowth.
Systemic weedkillers often include "glyphosate".

Sodium Chlorate is good, but you will get re-growth after a while.

As said, systemic weed killers containing glyphosate (eg Weedol™) do a better job, but are very much more expensive and you may need to re-treat some stubborn weeds several times. It rather depends on what you want to kill. If you have a problem with Ground Elder, Ranunculus (Buttercup) or Japanese Knotweed, you may have a few years battle on your hands.
