EHC 178 (WHO, 1996). Methomyl Health & Safety Guide: 97 (WHO 1995). Animals In rats, methomyl was rapidly converted to methomyl methylol, oxime, sulfoxide and sulfoxide oxime; these unstable intermediates were converted to acetonitrile and CO2, which were eliminated primarily via respiration and in the urine. Metabolism of carbamate insecticides is reviewed (M. Cool & C. K. Jankowski in "Insecticides"). Plants DT50 following leaf application c. 3-5 d. Rapidly degraded to CO2 and acetonitrile, with incorporation into natural plant components (J. Harvey & R. W. Reiser, Agric. Food Chem., 1973, 21, 775). Soil/Environment Rapidly degraded in soil. DT50 in groundwater samples <0.2 d (J. H. Smelt, Pestic. Sci., 1983, 14, 173-181). Koc 72.
