ROTENONE Usage And Synthesis
white or off-white powder
Rotenone is a colorless to red odorless crystal- line solid; a white crystalline solid when pure; oxidation will cause yellowing to bright red coloring. Odorless.
Rotenone is used for the control of aphids, thrips, suckers and other insects in fruit and vegetable cultivation. It is also used for control in buildings, for the control of lice, ticks and warble fly on animals and as a piscicide for the management of fish populations.
acaricide, ectoparasiticide, antineoplastic, mitochondrial poison
Rotenone is an broad spectrum insecticide that occurs naturally in seeds and stems of several plants.
ChEBI: A member of the class of rotenones that consists of 1,2,12,12a-tetrahydrochromeno[3,4-b]furo[2,3-h]chromen-6(6aH)-one substituted at position 2 by a prop-1-en-2-yl group and at positions 8 and 9 by methoxy group (the 2R,6aS,12aS-isomer). A non-systemic insecticide, it is the principal insecticidal constituent of derris (the dried rhizome and root of Derris elliptica).
Colorless to brownish crystals or a white to brownish-white crystalline powder. Has neither odor nor taste.
Air & Water Reactions
ROTENONE decomposes upon exposure to light or air. Insoluble in water.
ROTENONE is readily oxidized in the presence of alkalis. ROTENONE is incompatible with oxidizers. .
Toxic by ingestion, overexposure can be fatal, irritant to skin, eyes and upper respiratory tract. Central nervous system impairment. Ques- tionable carcinogen.
Flash point data for ROTENONE are not available; however, ROTENONE is probably combustible.
Insecticide, Acaracide, Veterinary medicine: The use of rotenone as a pesticide to kill invasive fish species is currently the only allowable use of this pesticide. Rotenone is a selective, nonspecific botanical insecticide with some acaricidal properties, and has been used in agriculture to control insects on vine fruit, flowers and vegetables. Registered for use in the U.S.A U.S. EPA restricted Use Pesticide (RUP) due to acute inhalation, acute oral, and aquatic toxicity. Agricultural and residential uses and all food uses were voluntarily cancelled in 2006. In 2006, registrants requested voluntarily cancellation of all livestock, residential and home owner uses, domestic pet uses, and all other uses except for pesticide uses. In 2011 the use of this pesticide chemical was linked to Parkinson’s disease. Not listed for use in EU countries.

Mitochondrial electron transport chain inhibitor (IC 50 = 1.7 - 2.2 μ M at complex I). Inhibits NADH oxidation by cardiac sarcoplasmic reticulum (IC 50 = 3.4 nM). Commonly used pesticide and induces Parkinsonism in animal models. Cell-permeable and brain penetrant.
A potential danger to those involved in extraction from derris root, formulation or application of this insecticide. Rotenone is used as a pharmaceutical and veterinary drug.
By hepatic microsomal incubations from rainbow trout with 14C-rotenone, three major and several minor metabolites of rotenone are observed, the major ones being identified as rotenolone and two epimeric forms of 6' ,7' -dihydroxyrotenone.
UN2811 Toxic solids, organic, n.o.s., Hazard Class: 6.1; Labels: 6.1-Poisonous materials, Technical Name Required. UN2588 Pesticides, solid, toxic, Hazard Class: 6.1; Labels: 6.1-Poisonous materials, Technical Name Required.
Incompatible with oxidizers (chlorates, nitrates, peroxides, permanganates, perchlorates, chlorine, bromine, fluorine, etc.); contact may cause fires or explo- sions. Keep away from alkaline materials, strong bases, strong acids, oxoacids, epoxides, and alkalies.
Rotenone is decomposed by light and alkali to less insecticidal products. It is readily detoxified by the action of light and air. It is also detoxified by heating; 2 hours @ 100 ? C results in 76% decomposition. Oxidation products are probably nontoxic. Incineration has been recommended as a disposal procedure. Burial with lime would also present minimal danger to the environ- ment . In accordance with 40CFR165, follow recommen- dations for the disposal of pesticides and pesticide containers. Must be disposed properly by following pack- age label directions or by contacting your local or federal environmental control agency, or by contacting your regional EPA office.
