Methomyl's production may result in its release to the environment through various waste streams; it's use as an insecticide will result in its direct release to the environment. If released to air, a vapor pressure of 5.4×10-6 mm Hg at 25 deg C indicates methomyl will exist in both the vapor and particulate phases in the ambient atmosphere. Vapor-phase methomyl will be degraded in the atmosphere by reaction with photochemically-produced hydroxyl radicals; the half-life for this reaction in air is estimated to be 58 hours. Particulate-phase methomyl will be removed from the atmosphere by wet and dry deposition. Methomyl absorbs light greater than 290 nm and may undergo direct photolysis in the environment. The half-life for a thin film of methomyl exposed to laboratory lamps of environmentally significant wavelengths was 48.41 hours. If released to soil,methomyl is expected to have moderate mobility based upon a Koc of 160. Volatilization from moist soil surfaces is not expected to be an important fate process based upon an estimated Henry's Law constant of 1.9×10-11 atm-cu m/mole. Methomyl is not expected to volatilize from dry soil surfaces based on its vapor pressure. Methomyl biodegrades readily in soil with half-lives in the range of 3-14 days measured in 3 greenhouse soils and 5-6 weeks in tobacco growing soils. If released into watermethomyl is not expected to adsorb to suspended solids and sediment based upon the Koc. Hydrolysis occurs slowly in water with half-lives of 56, 54, 38, and 20 weeks at pH's of 4.5, 6.0, 7.0, and 8.0, respectively. Based on its absorption of light greater than 290 nm, methomyl may undergo photolysis in sunlit surface waters, but the kinetics of this reaction are unknown. Volatilization from water surfaces is not expected to be an important fate process based upon this compound's estimated Henry's Law constant. An estimated BCF of 3 suggests the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is low. Occupational exposure to methomyl may occur through inhalation of dust and dermal contact with this compound at workplaces where methomyl is produced or used. Monitoring data indicate that the general population may be exposed to methomyl via ingestion of food products containing methomyl. (SRC)
