How does fenpropathrin work?
Fenpropathrin is an ingestion and contact synthetic pyrethroid. Its mode of action is similar to other natural (pyrethrum) and synthetic pyrethroids where in they interfere with the kinetics of voltage gated sodium channels causing paralysis and death of the pest.
Is fenpropathrin a chemical?
Fenpropathrin is a cyclopropanecarboxylate ester obtained by formal condensation between 2,2,3,3-tetramethylcyclopropanecarboxylic acid and cyano(3-phenoxyphenyl)methanol. It has a role as a pyrethroid ester insecticide, a pyrethroid ester acaricide and an agrochemical. Used as an acaricide and insecticide.
Is Fenpropathrin systemic?
There are no reports specific to fenpropathrin ingestion. Systemic effects Systemic effects generally have occurred after inappropriate occupational handling of pyrethroids.
What is Danitol used for?
DANITOL® 10 EC is recommended for the control of spider mites and Californian thrips on grapevines; spider mites and prawns in apple and pome trees; spider mites, whiteflies and aphids on citrus fruits.
Is permethrin soluble in water?
Permethrin is a contact insecticide. It is not highly soluble in water, has a low volatility and is not normally expected to leach to groundwater. It would also not be expected to persist in soil or water systems. It is moderately toxic to humans, is an irritant and may be a CNS toxicant.
How harmful is permethrin?
Depending on the formulation, permethrin is a non-toxic to moderately toxic pesticide. Short-term side effects in sensitive individuals include eye, skin, nose, and throat irritation, and may include breathing problems.
What is Fenpropathrin?
More… Fenpropathrin is a cyclopropanecarboxylate ester obtained by formal condensation between 2,2,3,3-tetramethylcyclopropanecarboxylic acid and cyano (3-phenoxyphenyl)methanol. It has a role as a pyrethroid ester insecticide, a pyrethroid ester acaricide and an agrochemical.
What is the half life of Fenpropathrin in distilled water?
The photolysis half-lives of fenpropathrin in distilled water, distilled water with humic acid, river water, and seawater were 13.5, 6, 2.7, and 1.6 weeks, respectively when exposed to sunlight (8). Hydrolysis may also be an important fate process under alkaline conditions or in warm waters (SRC).
How long does it take for Fenpropathrin to hydrolyze?
At 25 °C, the hydrolysis half-lives of fenpropathrin were approximately 2.2 years and 8 days at pH 7 and 9, respectively, while at 40 °C, the half-lives were about 80 days and 19 hours at pH 7 and 9, respectively (9).
Is volatilization of Fenpropathrin from moist soil an important fate process?
Volatilization of fenpropathrin from moist soil surfaces is expected to be an important fate process (SRC) given an estimated Henry’s Law constant of 1.8X10-4 atm-cu m/mole (SRC) derived from its vapor pressure, 5.48X10-6 mm Hg (3), and water solubility, 1.41X10-2 mg/l (3).
