We carry Alligare Diquat which is a generic of Reward Herbicide and much more cost effective. Diquat is a weed killer concentrate that needs to be mixed with water before application. You will not find a safer aquatic herbicide to kill pond weeds and /5(). FIGURE 3.

Bipyridyls (diquat and paraquat) disrupt photosystem I in photosynthesis (Paraquat Information Center, ) but have multiple sites of action in animal as well as plant cells. Diquat ForCalifornia agricultural use data showed applications, for a total of 70, pounds used on grains, nursery crops, potatoes, and rights of way and.

Paraquat is a toxic chemical that is widely used as an herbicide (plant killer), primarily for weed and grass control. In the United States, paraquat is available primarily as a liquid in various strengths.

The US Environmental Protection Agency classifies paraquat as “restricted use.” This means that it can be used only by people who are. Paraquat (18) and diquat (19) are non-selective, quick acting herbicides, active on most green plants, which are very rapidly inactivated by irreversible adsorption on contact with soil, particularly clays.

These unique properties have allowed changes in farming practice, such as direct-drilling, where the field can be seeded very shortly after. The book includes papers on the following topics: the general features of toxic lung injury and observations with paraquat and diquat; electron transfer reactions of paraquat; the pathological effects of paraquat on the human lung; and the importance of oxygen and pulmonary alveolar surfactant in lung injury by Edition: 1.

MQ Paraquat Anti itch Ointment - Multipurpose Anti-Itch Cream for Skin Sores, Itching, Insect Bites, Redness, Irritation. Soothing & Healing Ointment $ $   Diquat is less toxic, but because paraquat and diquat are generally sold as a mixture, both should be simultaneously identified and quantified in a single analysis.

Paraquat is available in over countries, and its high toxicity has branded it as one of the most common herbicides that causes death, either through accidental or intentional. (Diquat) and m/z 93 (Paraquat) and the radical [M+.] cations at m/z (Diquat) and m/z (Paraquat) have also been formed at much lower relative intensities.

The MS/MS spectrum of singly charged Diquat (m/z ) is quiet simple compared to that of the singly charged Paraquat (m/z ) as illustrated in Figure 1.

The degree of photochemical degradation depends on light intensity, but up to 50% of the original dose may be lost by this means during the time required for the plant to wither and disintegrate. : diquat.

• Diquat (technical name diquat dibromide) is the active ingredient in Reglone®, a herbicide that has been used in New Zealand for over 40 years for both agricultural operations and lake-weed Size: 80KB.

Paraquat (C 12 H 14 N 2) is a bipyridyl contact herbicide most commonly marketed as paraquat is used to control aquatic weeds and weeds in seed crops and orchards, as a crop desiccant and defoliant on cotton and potato vines, and as a harvest aid for soybeans.

Paraquat is an effective and widely used herbicide but is also a lethal poison. In many developing countries paraquat is widely available and inexpensive, making poisoning prevention : Michael Eddleston. Pathclear contains paraquat, diquat, simazine and amitrole.

Inerts and contaminants To reduce the chance of poisonings many countries require herbicides containing paraquat to include a stinking agent, an emetic to make people vomit, and a coloured dye so that it cannot be mistaken for a drink.

File Size: KB. Discussion. Paraquat is a commonly used non-selective herbicide ().According to the International Program for Chemical Safety Classification System of Pesticides by the World Health Organization (WHO), paraquat is classified as ‘moderately hazardous’ (WHO class II) ().The herbicide industry claims that paraquat is safe if handled as instructed, yet paraquat poisoning remains a Cited by: 6.

Paraquat is a broad spectrum, non-selective herbicide. It belongs to the Bipyridylium family of herbicides. Pure paraquat salts are white and the technical products, yellow. They are crystalline, odorless, hygroscopic powders.

Paraquat is slightly soluble in alcohol and practically insoluble in organic solvents. Paraquat is mainly formulated as an aqueous solution with surface-active agents. In some countries, a low-strength granular formulation (also containing diquat) is available.

Paraquat is a fast-acting, nonselective contact herbicide, absorbed by the foliage with some translocation in the xylem. Paraquat dichloride is toxic to nontarget crops and plants if off-target movement occurs because it desiccates all green plant tissue.

Extreme care must be taken to ensure that off-target drift is minimized to the greatest extent Size: KB. Paraquat was not metabolized by rats.

After oral administration (gastric intubation) of single doses of paraquat dichloride or dimethylsulfate to Wistar strain male and female rats, most of the administered radioactivity (%) was excreted in feces as unchanged paraquat.

After subcutaneous injection of these compounds, unchanged paraquat appeared mostly in urine (% of the administered. Abstract. A simple method, incorporating protein-precipitation/organic backwashing and liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry (LC–MS-MS), has been successfully developed for the simultaneous analysis of four highly water-soluble and less volatile herbicides (paraquat, diquat, glufosinate and glyphosate) in ante- and postmortem blood, urine and gastric content by: The toxicity of diquat.

The acute toxicity of diquat has been assessed in several species. The oral LD 50 ranged from about 30 mg/kg in cattle to mg/kg in the rat. Large doses of diquat gave rise to symptoms indicative of an action on the central nervous system, but smaller doses did not suggest an obvious mode of action to account for the Cited by:   Potatoes NZ confirmed growers used paraquat, although the more favoured chemical was diquat.

Both are designed to inhibit photosynthesis, with paraquat being sprayed before planting. Paraquat SL IMPORTANT:Invert empty container over the spray or mixing tank and allow to drain for at least 30 seconds after the flow has slowed down to a drip.

Thereafter rinse the container three times with a volume of water equal to a minimum of 10% of theFile Size: KB. Diquat is slightly less toxic than paraquat. However, this distinction may be of little comfort, as both compounds are extremely poisonous.

Paraquat. Ingestion of as little as 2–4 g, or 10–20 mL, of concentrated 20% paraquat solution has resulted in death.

The estimated lethal dose of 20% paraquat is 10–20 mL for adults and 4–5 mL for. Paraquat (1,1′-dimethyl-4, 4′-bipyridinium dichloride), a nonselective herbicide, was once widely used in North America and is still used in some countries including the U.S.A.

It is extremely toxic in animals and humans after acute exposure. Diquat is the ISO common name for an organic dication that, as a salt with counterions such as bromide or chloride is used as a contact herbicide that produces desiccation and defoliation.

Diquat is no longer approved for use in the European Union, although its registration in many other countries including the USA is still ance: Yellow crystals.

Paraquat is often formulated as a dichloride salt or a dimethyl sulfate salt.El paraquat y el diquat son herbicidas bipiridilos no selectivos que se usan bastante, principalmente en la agricultura y por las agencias de gobierno e industrias para el control de malas hierbas.
