Mesotriones's production may result in its release to the environment through various waste streams; its use as a herbicide will result in its direct release to the environment. If released to air, a vapor pressure of <4.27×10-8 mm Hg at 20 deg C indicates mesotrione will exist solely in the particulate phase in the ambient atmosphere. Particulate-phase mesotrione will be removed from the atmosphere by wet and dry deposition. Mesotrione absorbs at wavelengths >290 nm and, therefore, may be susceptible to direct photolysis by sunlight. If released to soil, mesotrione is expected to have very high to moderate mobility based upon measured Koc values of 15 to 390. Based on the pKa of 3.12, mesotrione is expected to exist primarily in the enol-tautomer form in the environment. The Koc is inversely correlated with pH, as the pH increases, the Koc decreases. Volatilization from moist soil surfaces is not expected to be an important fate process based upon an estimated Henry's Law constant of <1.2×10-10 atm-cu m/mole. Mesotrione is not expected to volatilize from dry soil surfaces based upon its vapor pressure. Direct photolysis can occur on soil surfaces with estimated half-lives of 22-24 days at 37-50 deg N latitudes. Biodegradation is the major degradation pathway in soil and water. Laboratory half-lives determined in 17 soils range from 6 to 27 days. Degradation was found to be related to soil pH, with half-lives decreasing with increasing soil pH. Field dissipation half-lives in 6 soils in 3 European countries ranged from 3-7 days. If released into water, mesotrione is not expected to adsorb to suspended solids and sediment based upon the Koc values. In water-sediment distribution tests, mesotrione was predominantly found in the water phase (>82%) with a maximum of 3.8% partitioning to sediment. 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. Mesotrione is stable to hydrolysis at pH 4-9. It is susceptible to direct photolysis in water with estimated half-lives of 81-97 days under summer conditions at 40-50 deg N latitude. The presence of organic matter in natural waters may increase the photodegradation rate by an order of magnitude due to sensitized photo-oxidation. Biodegradation is a major degradation pathway in water. Laboratory dissipation studies in water and water-sediment systems have observed mesotrione half-lives of 3.9-6.6 days.

Usage: Reported by R. A. Wichert et al., Proc. Br. Crop Prot. Conf. - Weeds, 1999, 1, 105. See also J. Dyson et al., Proc. 9th IUPAC Int. Congr. Pestic. Chem., London, 1998, 2, 6A-021. Developed by Syngenta AG and first registered in 2001. Manufacturers: Syngenta. p-Hydroxyphenyl pyruvate dioxygenase inhibitor, which ultimately affects carotenoid biosynthesis. Selectivity in maize derives from differential metabolism (to the 4-hydroxy derivative) and also possibly from slower foliar uptake.

Application: Uptake is foliar and via the root, with both acropetal and basipetal translocation. Symptoms are whitening of leaves, followed by necrosis of the meristematic tissue. Under development for pre- (at 100-225 g/ha) and post- (at 70-150 g/ha) emergence control of broad-leaved weeds, such as Xanthium strumarium, Ambrosia trifida, Abutilon theophrasti, and Chenopodium, Amaranthus and Polygonum spp., and some grass weeds, in maize.
