The chemical structure of tribenuron methyl possesses a mono-N-methyl group in the sulfonylurea linkage which is a unique sulfonylurea herbicide and undergoes complex degradation reactions in the environment. Tribenuron methyl degrades into many degradation products, as indicated in the pathways by photolytic and hydrolytic chemical reactions and by biological degradations by mammal, plant, and soil. It is interesting to note that photolysis in different solvents yields diverse products depending on the individual solvents.
Methomyl (1) was hydrolysed under alkaline conditions at 25 °C (DT50
ca. 14 days) and was stable under neutral to acidic conditions [DT50 > 30
days at pH 5 and 7 (Friedman, 1983)l. Cleavage of the carbamate ester
bond is the primary degradation pathway, yielding S-methyl N-hydroxy-thioacetimidate
Irradiation of methomyl in dilute aqueous solution at 254 nrn yielded acetonitrile (3), dimethyl disulfide, acetone, N-ethylidenethylamine and carbon dioxide (Freeman and Ndip, 1984). Methomyl does not absorb sunlight but underwent degradation to acetonitrile by indirect photolytic reactions in/on soil surfaces (Swanson, 1986).
