Description

Yellow liquid; [HSDB]

Sources/Uses

Used as insecticide; [Merck Index]

Comments

Effects in high-dose oral studies with chickens include flaccid paralysis without anesthesia (usually neuromuscular blockage) and convulsions; [RTECS] The average of two baseline respective cholinesterase activity determinations three days apart, with no exposures to enzyme inhibiting pesticides for at least 30 days, is recommended for each worker prior to exposure to cholinesterase inhibitors because of large inter-individual differences in published baseline values. To be established at least once a year. Removal from workplace exposures is recommended until the cholinesterase activity returns to within 20% of baseline. [TLVs and BEIs]

Restricted

Cancelled--no longer registered as a pesticide for use in the US; [HSDB]

Exposure Assessment
