Pyrimethanil 40%SC

FRAC 9; anilinopyrimidine


Common name pyrimethanil (BSI, draft ISO)
IUPAC name N-(4,6-dimethylpyrimidin-2-yl)aniline
Chemical Abstracts name 4,6-dimethyl-N-phenyl-2-pyrimidinamine
CAS RN [53112-28-0] Development codes SN 100309 (Schering); ZK 100309

Biochemistry Inhibitor of methionine biosynthesis leading to inhibition of the secretion of enzymes necessary for infection. Mode of action Protectant (in Botrytis) and both protective and curative action (in Venturia). Uses Control of grey mould (Botrytis cinerea) on vines, fruit, vegetables and ornamentals. Control of leaf scab (Venturia inaequalis or V. pirina) on pome fruit. Phytotoxicity May be phytotoxic in closed systems at ³80% r.h. on certain species. Formulation types SC. Selected tradenames: 'Mythos' (Aventis); 'Scala' (Aventis)

Mixtures: 'Clarinet' (+ fluquinconazole) (Aventis); 'Vision' (+ fluquinconazole) (Aventis); 'Walabi' (+ chlorothalonil) (Aventis)

Non-irritating to skin and eyes (rabbits), and not a skin sensitiser (guinea pigs). Inhalation LC50 (4 h) for rats >>1.98 mg/l. NOEL (2 y) for rats 20 mg/kg b.w. daily. ADI 0.17-0.2 mg/kg. Other Negative in mutagenicity tests, and non-teratogenic in rats and rabbits. Toxicity class WHO (a.i.) III (Table 5); EPA (formulation) IV ('Scala' and 'Mythos')

Fish LC50 (96 h) for mirror carp 35.4, rainbow trout 10.6 mg/l. Daphnia LC50 (48 h) 2.9 mg/l. Algae EbC50 (96 h) 1.2 mg/l. Bees LD50 (oral and contact) >100 mg/bee. Worms LC50 (14 d) for earthworms 625 mg/kg dry soil. Other beneficial spp. Classified as harmless to a range of beneficials.

Animals Rapidly absorbed, extensively metabolised and rapidly excreted in all species examined. No evidence of accumulation, even on repeated dosing. Metabolism proceeds by oxidation to phenolic derivatives which are excreted as glucuronide or sulfate conjugates. Plants Little metabolism occurs in fruit; residues at maturity consist essentially of unchanged parent compound only. For this reason, a crop residue monitoring method has been developed for the direct determination of pyrimethanil itself. Soil/Environment DT50 in laboratory studies 27-82 d; field studies indicate rapid degradation, DT50 7-54 d. Koc 265-751. Low potential for leaching to groundwater; field studies show minimal movement of pyrimethanil into deeper soil layers. Pyrimethanil disappears rapidly from surface water and moderately adsorbs to the sediment, from which it is further degraded.
