Ametryne's production may result in its release to the environment through various waste streams; its use in pre-emergence and post-emergence herbicides will result in its direct release to the environment. If released to air, a vapor pressure of 2.74×10-6 mm Hg at 25 deg C indicates ametryne will exist in both the vapor and particulate phases in the atmosphere. Vapor-phase ametryne 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 4.5 hours. Particulate-phase ametryne will be removed from the atmosphere by wet and dry deposition. 1,3,5-Triazines, such as ametryne, have a UV absorption band whose tail extends beyond 290 nm and, therefore, may be susceptible to direct photolysis. Using a photoreactor, maintained at pH 6.5 and 15 deg C, ametryne exhibited a half-life of 10.2 hrs. If released to soil, ametryne is expected to have very high to low mobility based upon Koc values ranging from 69 to 530. The pKa of ametryne is 4.10, indicating that this compound will exist partially in the cation form in the environment and cations generally adsorb more strongly to soils containing organic carbon and clay than their neutral counterparts. Volatilization from moist soil surfaces is not expected to be an important fate process based upon an estimated Henry's Law constant of 3.9×10-9 atm-cu m/mole. Ametryne is not expected to volatilize from dry soil surfaces based upon its vapor pressure. Utilizing the Japanese MITI test, 0% of the Theoretical BOD was reached in 4 weeks indicating that biodegradation is not an important environmental fate process in soil or water. However, ametryne has a median half-life in soil of 62 days resulting from microbial degradation, indicating that biodegradation, albeit slow, may be an important environmental fate process in soil under certain conditions. If released into water, ametryne may adsorb to suspended solids and sediment based upon the Koc values. Volatilization from water surfaces is not expected to be an important fate process based upon this compound's estimated Henry's Law constant. A BCF of 8.3 suggests bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is low. Hydrolysis is not expected to be an important environmental fate process since this compound lacks functional groups that hydrolyze under environmental conditions (pH 5 to 9).

Usage: Herbicide reported by H. Gysin & E. Knüsli (Adv. Pest Control Res., 1960, 3, 289). Introduced by J. R. Geigy S.A. (now Syngenta AG). Patents: GB 814948; CH 337019. Manufacturers: Atanor; Crystal; Hegang Heyou; Hesenta; Makhteshim-Agan; Oxon; Sannong; Syngenta. Photosynthetic electron transport inhibitor at the photosystem II receptor site.

Application: Selective systemic herbicide, absorbed by the leaves and roots, with translocation acropetally in the xylem, and accumulation in the apical meristems. Pre- and post-emergence control of most annual grasses and broad-leaved weeds in pineapples, sugar cane, bananas, citrus fruit, maize, cassava, coffee, tea, sisal, cocoa, oil palms, and on non-crop land. Application rates are in the range 2-4 kg/ha, except when used as a directed spray on maize. Also used as a potato haulm desiccant. Some sugar cane varieties show temporary chlorosis and scorching of lower leaves.
