Chlorfluazuron Chemical Properties,Usage,Production

Overview

Chlorfluazuron is a benzoylurea fluorinated nitrogen heterocyclic pesticide with unique mechanism of action, high efficiency, low toxicity and being environmentally friendly. It can be used in vegetables, cotton, fruit trees and pine trees. It is mainly used for controlling Pieris rapae, Plutella xylostella, Helicoverpa armigera, apple peach moth, and pine caterpillars. Its prevention and cure effect is remarkable, especially for the control of vegetable pests; it is expected that it is one of the main varieties that replace the current highly toxic pesticide, providing a new pesticide variety for the production of green food.

Chemical properties

Pure product appears as white or yellowish white tasteless crystalline powder with a melting point of 226.5 ℃ (decomposition). It is hard to be dissolved in water, being easily soluble in ketones, aromatic hydrocarbons and alcohols. Stable under light and heat, stable under neutral and weak acid conditions; it is easily subject to decomposition to alkali treatment.
Pure product appears as white odor-free crystal. m. p. 232-233.5 ° C, relative density 1.4977 (20 ° C), vapor pressure <1 x 10-10 Pa (20 ° C). Solubility: cyclohexanone 110g / L, acetone 52.1g / L, ethyl acetate 45.7g / L, ethylene dichloride 22g / L, toluene 6.5g / L, xylene 3g / L, methanol 2.5 (2.2) g / L, ethanol 2.0 g / L, n-octanol 1 g / L, hexane 10 mg / L and water 0.016 mg / L. Stable at room temperature; stable to light. The proto-drug is yellow-brown crystal with a melting point of220 ~ 223.9 ℃.

Characteristics

It is of gastric poisoning, contact kill (inhibition of chitin synthesis) effect with high efficacy against pests, but the efficacy is slow. The mechanism of action is through inhibition of chitin synthesis, hindering insect normal molting, egg hatching, larvae molting and pupal developmental deformity and block of adult feather.
An overview of chlorfluazuron, physical and chemical properties, characteristics, synthesis, precautions, etc. are edited by Shi Yan, Chemicalbook. (2015-11-17)

Application

Benzoyl urea insect growth regulator. Major effect is through stomach poisoning, coupled with strong contact action. Its permeability is poor with no endosuction effect.
Insecticidal mechanism is through inhibiting the formation of chitin, hindering the normal molting, causing egg hatching, larvae molting, kidney malformations, adult emergence and obstruction of eggs, so as to achieve the effect of insecticide. It has high activity and slow acting speed, and has a longer half-life in larvae. The agent is a broad-spectrum insecticide and is effective against various Lepidoptera pests and Diptera, Orthoptera and Hymenoptera. It is quite effective on insects on the vegetables, can also be used to control a variety of pests on cabbage, cotton, tea trees and fruit trees.

Synthesis

Have 2, 6-dichloro-4-aminophenol and 2, 3-dichloro-5-trifluoromethylpyridine subject to etherification to give 3, 5-dichloro-4- (3- -trifluoromethyl-2-pyridyloxy) aniline, followed by reaction with 2, 6-difluorobenzoyl isocyanate (the reaction product of 2, 6-difluorobenzamide and solid phosgene) to obtain the target product Chlorfluazuron through condensation reaction; confirm its structure at the total yield of 95%.
Synthesis of 1, 3, 5-dichloro-4- (3-chloro-5-trifluoromethyl-2-pyridyloxy) aniline (4)
18.2g (0.10 mol) of 2,6-dichloro-4-aminophenol, 21.6 g (0.10 mol) of 2,3- dichloro-5-trifluoromethylpyridine Potassium and 0.5 g of catalyst were dissolved in 120 mL of DMF and reacted at 110-115 ° C; apply chromatography monitoring, when the raw material 2,3-dichloro-5-trifluoromethylpyridine has a content ≤ 0.5%, stop the reaction for about 6h. After the completion of the reaction, the residue was removed by filtration and the solvent was removed under reduced pressure. The residue was further extracted with 3 × 100 mL of dichloroethane, washed with 3 × 150 mL of water until neutral and dried by anhydrous magnesium sulfate overnight to give the dichloroethane solution of 3,5-dichloro-4- (3-chloro-5-trifluoromethyl-2-pyridyloxy) aniline (4) (to be used).
Synthesis of 2, 2, 6-difluorobenzoyl isocyanate (3)
15.7 g (0.10 mol) of 2, 6-difluorobenzamide (2) was dissolved in 150 mL of dichloroethane and 15.0 g (0.05 mol) of solid phosgene was added at -5 ° C. After holding for 1 hour, the mixture was heated to reflux 5h; the exhaust gas was absorbed by 5% sodium hydroxide solution. Apply chromatographic monitoring, when 2,6 - difluorobenzamide content ≤ 0.5%, cooled to room temperature for stand-by.
Synthesis of chlorfluazuron (1).
The dichloroethane solution of 3,5-dichloro-4- (3-chloro-5-trifluoromethyl-2-pyridyloxy) aniline (4) was slowly added dropwise at 80 to 85 ?C to the dichloroethane solution of 2,6-difluorobenzoyl isocyanate (3); the dropwise addition time is controlled at about 30min; incubate for 2h, then apply sampling control; when the etherate content ≤ 0.5%, apply atmospheric recovery of the solvent dichloroethane, filtered, and dried to give 47.0 g of off-white to white chlorfluazuron product.

Controlling objects and synthesis methods

It is of high activity against Lepidoptera, Coleoptera, Orthoptera, Hymenoptera and Diptera with no effects on aphids, leafhoppers and planthoppers.

  • Control Pieris rapae and diamondback moth; during 1 to 3 instar larvae stage, apply 1 000 ~ 4 000 times 5% EC times for spray. Make appropriate adjustment in the above concentration range according to the severity of the pest and the size of insect instar.
  • Control Eucalyptus ladybugs, potato ladybugs, Spodoptera litura and cutworm; during the larval hatch stage, use 2000~3000 times 5% EC for spray.
  • Prevention and control of pod borer, use 1 000 ~ 2 000 times liquid to administrate once in both the crop flowering stage and pest egg stage.

Production

Preparation of 2, 6 - difluorobenzonitrile
2, 6-dichlorobenzonitrile can be made through single-step method using ammonia oxidation of 2, 6-dichlorotoluene. Take 2,6-dichlorobenzonitrile as raw material, potassium fluoride as fluorinating agent and DMF, DMSO or sulfolane as solvent, the reaction temperature is 200-250 ℃.
Synthesis method of 2,6-difluorobenzonitrile has the following improvements, such as: ① use phase transfer catalysts such as quaternary ammonium salt, crown ether and polyether for synthesis, if polyether is used as the catalyst, the reaction temperature is 210 ~ 230 ℃, the time is 8 ~ 10h, the yield is 86%; ② Owing to the strong electron-withdrawing group -CN, under normal fluorination condition, the halogen of the ortho-aryl group will be lost. After adding dinitrobenzene, the above phenomenon was obviously inhibited, thereby increasing the yield; ③ Japanese patent reports, the above reaction uses segmented insulation method (170 ℃, 0.5h, 175 ℃, 2h, 220 ℃, 4h) with the yield being 95.6%; Increase the surface area of KF, use spray drying method to produce ultra-fine anhydrous KF, yield up to 80%.

Preparation of 2, 6-difluorobenzamide
Use sulfuric acid as a catalyst, apply 2, 6-difluorobenzonitrile and water to have nucleophilic addition reaction to obtain the corresponding sulfate. Use alkali to neutralize to pH 6 to give 2, 6-difluorobenzamide.

Synthesis of chlorfluazuron
2,6-Difluorobenzamide was reacted with phosgene in dichloroethane solvent at 50 ° C for 1 h to yield 2,6-difluorobenzoyl isocyanate, which was then reacted with 4- (3-chloro-5-trifluoromethylpyridin-2-yloxy) -3,5-dichloroaniline to give chlorfluazuron.

Attention

  1. Its application period is generally 3 days earlier than normal organophosphate, pyrethrins insecticide; in the best case, spray during the young larvae stage; for boring pests, it should be applied during the peak stage of egging.
  2. No suction conduction effect; the application must be uniform and thoughtful.
  3. Avoid using it in the mulberry fields, fish ponds and other places.
  4. For cotton and cabbage area, do not use more than 3 times for crops per season; for citrus, do not use more than 2 times. The safe interval is 21 days for cotton and citrus and 7 days for cabbage.
