Ethoprop

IUPAC Name: 1-[ethoxy(propylsulfanyl)phosphoryl]sulfanylpropane

Source: Used as a pesticide on soil.

Summary: Ethoprop (also known as ethoprophos) is an organophosphate used as an insecticide. It exists as a yellow liquid at room temperature and has a density of 1.094 g/mL at 20 C. It is soluble in water up to 750 mg/L. Upon decomposition it produces gaseous phosphorus/sulfur oxides. Koc values ranging from 70 – 120 indicate moderate to high mobility within soil that may lead to leaching to groundwater. Photolysis is expected to be a major method of natural removal in water and soil. Hydrolysis may occur under alkaline conditions.
