Water Treatment:

Summary: Mevinphos (also known as Phosdrin) is a pale yellow liquid at room temperature. It is an organophosphate used as a pesticide. It is soluble in water up to 600,000 mg/L. Mevinphos may be corrosive to some plastics and rubber. Partial oxidation may produce fires or explosions. It adsorbs better to clay soils, while in sand soils it may become mobile and leach. It is not expected to be a negatively impacting aerosol. Gravitational settling and reaction with ozone degrades mevinphos to a half life of 4.5 hours.
