Product analysis of pyrethroids reviewed by E. Papadopoulou-Mourkidou in Comp. Analyt. Profiles. By glc (M. Horiba et al., Botyu-Kagaku, 1975, 40, 123), or by u.v. spectrometry (J. Miyamoto, Anal. Methods Pestic. Plant Growth Regul., 1973, 7, 345).

Reviews See A. J. Gray & D. M. Soderlund, Chapt. 5 in "Insecticides". Oral Acute oral LD50 for rats >5000 mg/kg. Skin and eye Acute percutaneous LD50 for rabbits >2000 mg/kg. Non-irritant to skin. Inhalation LC50 (4 h) for rats >2.73 mg/l air. NOEL In 13 w feeding trials, dogs receiving 5000 mg/kg diet showed no ill-effects. In 6 mo feeding trials, no-effect level for rats was 1500 mg/kg diet. Other No evidence of oncogenicity. Toxicity class WHO (a.i.) III (Table 5); EPA (formulation) IV

Birds Acute oral LD50 for bobwhite quail >2250 mg/kg. Dietary LC50 for bobwhite quail and mallard ducks >5620 ppm. Fish LC50 (96 h) for rainbow trout 3.7, bluegill sunfish 16 mg/l. Daphnia EC50 (48 h) 0.11 mg/l. Bees Toxic to bees.

EHC 98 (WHO, 1990). EHC 98 notes rapid abiotic degradation in air and water, rapid metabolism and excretion in mammals, and no tendency to accumulate in tissues. Animals In rats, following oral administration, around 95% of tetramethrin (metabolised) is eliminated in the urine and faeces within 5 days. The principal metabolite is 3-hydroxycyclohexan-1,2-dicarboximide (J. Miyamoto et al., J. Agric. Biol. Chem., 1968, 32, 628). Soil/Environment Degradation involves cleavage of the ester bond, leading to chrysanthemic acid derivatives and phenoxybenzoic acid. These are further metabolised by hydroxylation and conjugation.
