Light yellow powder
White or cream-colored odorless, tasteless powder. Sublimes above 590°F. Fluoresces in acidic solution. Formulated as a dust, flowable powder or wettable powder for use as a systemic fungicide and anthelmintic.
ChEBI: A member of the class of benzimidazoles carrying a 1,3-thiazol-4-yl substituent at position 2. A mainly post-harvest fungicide used to control a wide range of diseases including Aspergillus, Botrytis, Cladosporium and Fusarium.
This fungicide and vermifuge agent is widely used in agriculture (for example, forcitrus fruits), and in medical and veterinary practice as an anthelmintic drug.
Air & Water Reactions
Insoluble in water.
A drug used in the treatment of helminthiases
Thiabendazole is incompatible with a number of pesticides, including copper-containing fungicides, and with highly alkaline materials. Thiabendazole is a chelating agent, binding many metals including iron, but not calcium
Thiabendazole is a kind of fungicide and parasiticide. As a fungicide, it can be used for the treatment of mold, blight and many other fungal diseases occurring in fruits and vegetable. As an antiparasitic, it is capable of treating roundworms, hookworms, and other kinds of helminth species that can attack wild animals, livestock and humans. It also has effects of inhibiting the angiogenesis of cells. The mechanism of action is still not fully understood. It has found that Thiabendazole is capable of suppressing the helminth-specific mitochondrial enzyme fumarate reductase, further inhibiting the citric acid cycle, mitochondrial respiration and ATP production, leading to helminth’s death. It may also inhibit the microtubule polymerization processes.
Flash point data for Thiabendazole are not available; however, Thiabendazole is probably combustible.
Fungicide: Thiabendazole is a fungicide used to control blight,
mold, stain and rot that are found on fruit and vegetables;
Dutch elm disease; and diseases found in food storage
and other diseases. It is also used to treat roundworms and
similar conditions in livestock and humans. Registered
for use in EU countries. A U.S. EPA restricted use
