Tefluthrin Chemical Properties,Usage,Production
Tefluthrin is a synthetic pyrethroid pesticide and is synthesized from the flower heads of chrysanthemum cinerariaefolium which contain the natural pyrethroids esters of chrysanthemumic acid or pyrethric acid. It is approved in Germany for the use of controlling a wide range of soil pests including coleoptera, lepidoptera and diptera in crops such as maize, sugar beet, corn, grains, and cotton.

Tefluthrin is used as a soil insecticide to control Coleoptera, Lepidoptera and Diptera in maize, sugar beet and other crops.
Tefluthrin is a pyrethroid based insecticide. Tefluthrin is used in the control of a broad range of soil pests, including members of the Coleoptera, Lepidoptera, and Diptera.
ChEBI: A cyclopropanecarboxylate ester resulting from the formal condensation of the carboxy group of 3-[(1Z)-2-chloro-3,3,3-trifluoroprop-1-en-1-yl]-2,2-dimethylcyclopropanecarboxylic acid with the hydroxy group of 2,3,5,6-tetrafluoro-4-methylbe zyl alcohol.
Insecticide, Miticide: A U.S. EPA restricted use Pesticide (RUP). Registered in the U.S. for use on corn. Elsewhere it is registered for use on a variety of crops, e.g., peanuts, sweet potato, sugarcane, cabbage, radish, Brussels sprouts, and strawberries. Registered for use in EU countries.

The commercialized compound, tefluthrin, was recommended to control soil-inhabiting pests (28). The most salient feature of the compound, which justifies its use exclusively for better performance of tefluthrin as a soil insecticide compared with cyhalothrin, is its approximately four orders ofmagnitude higher vapor pressure (V.P. = 8.4 vs. 0.001 mPa; see Table 6). Beside the quick insecticidal action attributed to fast penetration, tefluthrin also displays toxic symptoms at its sublethal dose, which could play an important role in field performance (179). The most active configuration of tefluthrin, (Z)(1RS)-cis-isomer mixture, is the optically active (Z)(1R)-cis-isomer.
When a goat is dosed with 14C-tefluthrin orally, extensive metabolism occurs in the goat by ester cleavage and oxidation at a variety of positions on the molecules. Low radioactive residues are detected in the milk, fat, and muscle, with tefluthrin as the largest individual component of the residue. Higher residues are present in the kidney and liver, and only a small percentage of this residue is due to tefluthrin. The remainder in the kidney and liver is a complex mixture of metabolites. In total, eight metabolites are identified in the feces and urine as well as other tissues such as fat, muscle, kidney, and liver.
Tefluthrin is a stable compound, being resistant to hydrolysis at pH 5-7 for at least 30 days. At pH 9, 7% hydrolysis occurred in 30 days. It is readily hydrolysed at higher pH to afford the cyclopropanecarboxylic acid (2) and 2,3,5,6-tetrafluoro-4-methylbenzyl alcohol (3). Exposure in aqueous solution at pH 7 to sunlight causes about 30% degradation in 31 days. Conversion to the trans-isomer occurred and hydrolysis to cis- and trans-2 and 3 followed.
