Diflubenzuron

IUPAC Name: N-[(4-chlorophenyl)carbamoyl]-2,6-difluorobenzamide

Source: Used as a pesticide on a wide range of crops.

Summary: Diflubenzuron is a member of the monochlorobenzenes and is a benzoylphenyl urea that is used as an insecticide. Also may be used as an additive in food. It has a solubility in water of 0.2 mg/L at 20 C and a density of 1.57 g/mL at 20 C. Decomposition produces toxic fumes of nitrogen oxides and chloride. The compound undergoes hydrolysis in alkaline conditions. A Koc value ranging from 6790 to 10600 indicates low mobility in soil and adsorption to suspended particles in water. Biodegradation and photolysis are very important to the natural removal of diflubenzuron.
