IUPAC Name: methyl (1E)-N-[methyl-[methyl-[(E)-1-methylsulfanylethylideneamino]oxycarbonylamino]sulfanylcarbamoyl]oxyethanimidothioate
Source: Used as a fungicide on crops and plants.
Summary: Thidiocarb is an organic compound used as an insecticide on crops and plants. It is soluble in water up to 19.1 mg/L at 25 C and has a density of 1.44 g/mL at 20 C. Upon decomposition it produces nitrogen/sulfur oxide gas. Thidiocarb may be undergo hydrolysis when exposed to strong acids or bases. As a vapor in the atmosphere it will have a half-life of 9.7 days. As a particulate in the atmosphere it may be degraded by photolysis or wet/dry deposition. A Koc value of 315 indicates moderate mobility within soil. Volatilization is a major fate process in soil, along with aerobic biodegradtion. In water, anaerobic biodegradation is an important method of natural removal. A main environmental transformation product is methomyl which is less persistent as an environmental contaminant than thidiocarb.
