Chlorophacinone Chemical Properties,Usage,Production
Chlorophacinone is produced by condensation of 1-
phenyl-1-(4-chlorophenyl) acetone with dimethyl phthalate
in the presence of sodium methoxide (31).
This compound was introduced in 1961 and is now widely used in Europe, the United States, and elsewhere. It is used in baits against norway rats at a concentration of 0.005–0.01%. Bait containing 0.025% chlorophacinone gave a complete kill of house mice after a 7-d feeding period but, in other tests, survivors were recorded following 10 and 21 days of feeding (5). Chlorophacinone acts as an uncoupler of oxidative phosphorylation as well as an anticoagulant (32), which is unusual among this group of compounds.
Chlorophacinone is a highly toxic crystalline solid.
Chlorophacinone (CPN) is an anticoagulant rodenticide widely used to control rodent infestations.
Crystals. Commercially available as oil concentrate and as dust concentrate. Used as an anticoagulant rodenticide. Chronic acting, multiple dose rodenticide.
Air & Water Reactions
Insoluble in water.
Fire may produce irritating or poisonous gases.
Chlorphacinon is highly toxic orally and by skin absorption. The probable oral lethal dose for humans is less than 5 mg/kg to 50 mg/kg, or between a taste (less than 7 drops) and 1 teaspoonful for a 150 lb. (70 kg) person.
Highly toxic anticoagulant rodenticide; lowchlorine content but highly toxic; exhibitsacute, delayed, and chronic poisoning;symptoms include bleeding of nose andgum, blood in cough, urine, and stool,abdominal pain and hemorrhage; can beabsorbed through skin causing systemicpoisoning; ingestion of 1–2 g is estimatedto be fatal dose for adult human; U.S. EPAlisted extremely hazardous substance.
LD50 oral (rat): ～2 mg/kg
LD50 oral (mouse): ～1 mg/kg
LD50 oral (rabbit): 50 mg/kg
LD50 skin (rabbit): 200 mg/kg.
(Non-Specific -- Coumarin Derivative Pesticide, Solid, n.o.s.) Fire may produce irriating or poisonous gases. Runoff from fire control water may give off poisonous gases. Runoff from fire control or dilution water may cause pollution. When heated Chlorphacinon emits toxic fumes of chlorides.
Rodenticide: This material is an anticoagulant rodenticide used around livestock and also on crops such as artichokes. Some brands are labeled for use indoors and outdoors for the control of mice, rats, moles, muskrats, voles and vampire bats. Not approved for use in EU countries. Registered for use in the U.S. There are 24 global suppliers.
