Terbuthylazine 50%SC

HRAC C1 WSSA 5; 1,3,5-triazine


Common name terbuthylazine (BSI, E-ISO, (f) F-ISO, ANSI, WSSA)
IUPAC name N2-tert-butyl-6-chloro-N4-ethyl-1,3,5-triazine-2,4-diamine
Chemical Abstracts name 6-chloro-N-(1,1-dimethylethyl)-N'-ethyl-1,3,5-triazine-2,4-diamine
CAS RN [5915-41-3] EEC no. 227-637-9 Development codes GS 13 529 (Geigy)

Terbuthylazine APPLICATIONS
Biochemistry Photosynthetic electron transport inhibitor at the photosystem II receptor site. Maize tolerance of triazines is attributed to conjugation with glutathione. Mode of action Herbicide, absorbed mainly by the roots. Uses Broad-spectrum pre- or post-emergence weed control in maize, sorghum, vines, fruit trees, citrus, coffee, oil palm, cocoa, olives, potatoes, peas, beans, sugar cane, rubber, and in forestry in tree nurseries and new plantings. It remains largely in the topsoil, controlling a wide range of weeds, at rates of 0.6-3 kg a.i./ha; high rates are only recommended as band applications. Phytotoxicity Phytotoxic to many annual plants and to aquatic plants. Formulation types SC; WG.

Terbuthylazine ANALYSIS
Product analysis by glc (CIPAC Handbook, 1983, 1B, 1897; AOAC Methods, 1995, 981.04, 971.08; FAO Specification (CP/61); J. Assoc. Off. Anal. Chem., 1981, 64, 504); particulars available from Syngenta. Residues determined by glc with DMC or FPD (K. Ramsteiner et al., ibid., 1974, 57, 192; Anal. Methods Pestic., Plant Growth Regul. Food Addit., 1964, 4, 13).

Other beneficial spp. No effects on bacterial respiration and nitrification in range 10.9-109 mg/kg soil.

Animals In mammals, following oral administration, 72-84% is eliminated in the urine and faeces within 24 h, and almost all within 48 h. A de-ethyl metabolite forms rapidly, followed by conjugates of products formed by oxidation of one methyl group of the tert-butyl moiety. All are rapidly excreted. Plants Triazine-tolerant plants (e.g. maize) rapidly de-chlorinate terbuthylazine to hydroxy-terbuthylazine. Various amounts of de-ethylated and hydroxy de-ethylated metabolites are produced, depending on the plant species. Soil/Environment Adsorption on soils is strong: Koc 162-278, Kd 2.2-25 are typical values for light agricultural soils. Terbuthylazine is only slightly mobile. Microbial degradation proceeds mainly by de-ethylation and hydroxylation, with eventual ring cleavage. DT50 30-60 d in biologically active soil.
