Air & Water Reactions
Insoluble in water. Slowly hydrolyzed.
ChEBI: A dithiocarbamic ester that is 1,3,5-thiadiazinane with a thione moiety at position 2 and in which the hydrogens attached to the nitrogens are replaced by methyl groups. A fungicide, herbicide and nematicide, it is used prior to sowing or planting for the
ontrol of soil fungi, nematodes, bacteria and germinating weeds, and as fumigant for poultry litter and eggs to control Salmonella. It is a non-ozone-depleting alternative to methyl bromide.
Dazomet decomposes in water, dilute acids and alcohol.
Dazomet is a biocide used to control bacterial and fungal growth in a pulp and paper system, and also in agriculture for soil disinfection. It is contained in Busan 1058, Mylone, and Fungicide 974 (Crag?). Sensitization, rarely reported, occurred in a paper mill worker.
