Phenothrin Usage And Synthesis
Phenothrin is pale yellow to yellow–brown clear liquid with a faint characteristic odor.
Pale yellow to yellow-brown liquid
Pale yellow to yellow-brown liquid. Non corrosive. Used as an insecticide.
Air & Water Reactions
Insoluble in water. Hydrolyzed by alkalis.
A pyrethroid derivative.
Insecticide: Used world-wide to control household insects and to protect stored grain. It is frequently formulated withother insecticides and is formulated in a number of carriers (aerosols, oil, dust, emulsifiable concentrates), and in powders, shampoos and lotion.

Most products are for residential flying insect control, e.g., fleas, wasps, flies, mosquitoes. Not approved for use in EU countries. Registered for use in the U.S. and Canada
Low toxicity by ingestion and skin contact. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating vapors.

UN3082 Environmentally hazardous substances, liquid, n.o.s., Hazard class: 9; Labels: 9-Miscellaneous hazardous material, Technical Name Required. UN3349 Pyrethroid pesticide, solid toxic, Hazard Class: 6.1; Labels: 6.1-Poisonous material. UN3352 Pyrethroid pesticide, liquid toxic, Hazard Class: 6.1; Labels: 6.1-Poisonous materials.
Acute oral LD50 for rats: >5,000 mg/kg
Keep away from alkaline materials. May react violently with strong oxidizers, bromine, 90% hydrogen peroxide, phosphorus trichloride, silver powders or dust. Incompatible with silver compounds. Mixture with some silver compounds forms explosive salts of silver oxalate. Compounds of the carboxyl group react with all bases, both inorganic and organic (i.e., amines) releasing substantial heat, water and a salt that may be harmful. Incompatible with arsenic compounds (releases hydrogen cyanide gas), diazo compounds, dithiocarbamates, isocyanates, mercaptans, nitrides, and sulfides (releasing heat, toxic and possibly flammable gases), thiosulfates and dithionites (releasing hydrogen sulfate and oxides of sulfur).
Incineration would be an effective disposal procedure where permitted. If an efficient incinerator is not available, the product should be mixed with large amounts of combustible material and contact with the smoke should be avoided. In accordance with 40CFR165, follow recommendations for the disposal of pesticides and pesticide containers
