Bromoxynil octanoate Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical PropertiesBromoxynil is a colorless to white crystalline solid or tan powder. Odorless (pure).
  • UsesHerbicide.
  • UsesSelective contact foliage-applied herbicide used to control many broad-leaved weeds such as bindweed, chickweed and Veronica spp. in cereals.
  • General DescriptionA solid. Used as a selective contact herbicide.
  • Reactivity ProfileBromoxynil octanoate is an ester. Readily hydrolyzed to bromoxynil and octanoate at pH's exceeding 9.
  • Health HazardHighly toxic, may be fatal if inhaled, swallowed or absorbed through skin. Avoid any skin contact. Effects of contact or inhalation may be delayed. Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases. Runoff from fire control or dilution water may be corrosive and/or toxic and cause pollution.
  • Fire HazardNon-combustible, substance itself does not burn but may decompose upon heating to produce corrosive and/or toxic fumes. Containers may explode when heated. Runoff may pollute waterways.
  • Agricultural UsesHerbicide: A U.S. EPA restricted Use Pesticide (RUP). Herbicide used for alfalfa seedlings, barley, corn, flax, garlic, grasses, mint, oats, onions, popcorn, rye, sorghum, triticale, wheat. See also below.
  • Trade nameBROMINAL®-W; BUCTRIL® Bromoxynil octoate; NPH-1320®
  • Potential ExposureBromoxynil is a hydroxybenzonitrile herbicide used for postemergent control of broadleaf weeds; on alfalfa, garlic, corn, sorghum, flax, cereals, turf and on pasture and rangelands. A United States Environmental Protection Agency RUP.
  • Environmental FateChemical/Physical. Emits toxic fumes of nitrogen oxides and bromine when heated to decomposition (Sax and Lewis, 1987). Hydrolyzes, especially at pH >9, to bromoxynil and octanoic acid (Hartley and Kidd, 1987; Worthing and Hance, 1991).
  • ShippingUN2588 Pesticides, solid, toxic, Hazard Class: 6.1; Labels: 6.1—Poisonous materials, Technical Name Required.
  • IncompatibilitiesA weak acid; keep away from bases and alkalies. React with boranes, alkalies, aliphatic amines, amides, nitric acid, sulfuric acid. Keep away from oxidizers (chlorates, nitrates, peroxides, permanganates, perchlorates, chlorine, bromine, fluorine, etc.) and strong acids.
  • Waste DisposalDo not discharge into drains or sewers. Dispose of waste material as hazardous waste using a licensed disposal contractor to an approved landfill. Incineration with effluent gas scrubbing is recommended. Consult with environmental regulatory agencies for guidance on acceptable disposal practices. If allowed, Incineration with effluent gas scrubbing is recommended. Containers must be disposed of properly by following package label directions or by contacting your local or federal environmental control agency, or by contacting your regional EPA office.
