IUPAC Name: 2-[(E)-N-[(E)-3-chloroprop-2-enoxy]-C-ethylcarbonimidoyl]-5-(2-ethylsulfanylpropyl)-3-hydroxycyclohex-2-en-1-one
Source: Used as an herbicide on weeds and grasses.
Summary: Clethodim is an organic compound used as an herbicide to eradicate weeds and wild grasses. The compound is soluble in water up to 11.9 mg/L at 25 C. A Koc value of 8,000 indicates very low mobility within soil. Adsorption is expected to be high based on the Koc value. Biodegradation is expected to be a major method of natural removal in water and soil. Bioaccumulation in organisms is expected to be high.
