FURALAXYL Usage And Synthesis
Furalaxyl is used for the control of soil-borne diseases caused by Phytophthora and Pythium species and other Oomycetes on ornamentals.
Incorporation of furalaxyl into the refreshed nutrient solution is made several times at different plant growth stages, and fulalaxyl is decomposed in the nutrient solution into N-(2,6-dimethylphenyl-N-(2- furanylcarbonyl)-DL-alanine and N-(2,6- dimethylphenyl)-DL-alanine by an enzymatic process.
Furalaxyl is a stable compound which is hydrolysed only at extreme pH
values. Its calculated DT50 values (20 °C) are, at pH 1, >200 days and at
pH 10,22 days (PM).
Furalaxyl was degraded when irradiated in aqueous solution with UV light (254 nm) with a half-life of 86 minutes. This study used non-labelled furalaxyl but the products of amide bond fission (2) and subsequent N-dealkylation, 2,6-dimethylaniline (3) were identified (see Scheme 1). The product mixture was therefore simpler than that obtained for metalaxyl under similar conditions. Under simulated sunlight conditions degradation was slower with a half-life of 391 days (Pirisi et al., 1996).
