Trichlorfon Production Cost Analysis 2020
Trichlorfon, also known as metrifonate, is an irreversible organophosphate acetylcholinesterase inhibitor. It is known as a prodrug that is activated non-enzymatically into the active agent dichlorvos. Moreover, it has been proposed for use in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease. It is also used as an insecticide. As an insecticide, it is used on home lawns, golf course turf, and ornamental shrubs and plants. It is also used in food and processing plants in non-food contact areas, along with in baitfish ponds to control the population of insects such as lepidopteran larvae (caterpillars), mole crickets, cattle lice, white grubs, sod webworms, leaf miners, stink bugs, earwigs, flies, ants, crickets, cockroaches, diving beetle, water scavenger beetle, water boatman backswimmer, giant water bugs, water scorpions, and pillbugs. Trichlorfon is majorly used by lawn care operators and golf courses.
In appearance, trichlorfon is a white crystalline solid. It is a wettable powder. Trichlorfon is an example of a phosphonic ester. It is an example of dimethyl phosphonate in which the hydrogen atom attached to the phosphorous is substituted by a 2,2,2-trichloro-1-hydroxyethyl group.
