Carbofuran Usage And Synthesis
DescriptionCarbofuran (2,3-dihydro-2,2-dimethylbenzofuran-7-yl methylcarbamate) is a broad-spectrum carbamate insecticide, nematicide, and acaricide. It has been used on a variety of crops, the most common including strawberries, alfalfa, corn, grapes, soybeans, and wheat. Carbofuran is applied to control soil-dwelling and foliar-feeding insects such as corn rootworm, wireworms, boll weevils, mosquitoes, alfalfa weevil, aphids, and white grubs. Carbofuran is highly toxic to birds, fish, and bees.

Chemical PropertiesWhite Solid
UsesCholinesterase inhibitor. Use as systemic insecticide, acaricide, nematocide.
UsesSystemic insecticide, acaricide, nematocide.
General DescriptionCarbofuran is an odorless white crystalline solid. Contact with skin may burn skin and eyes. When exposed to heat or flames Carbofuran may emit toxic oxides of nitrogen. Carbofuran is toxic by inhalation, skin contact, and/ or ingestion. Carbofuran is used as a pesticide.
Air & Water ReactionsSlightly soluble in water.
Reactivity ProfileCarbofuran is a carbamate ester. Carbamates are chemically similar to, but more reactive than amides. Like amides they form polymers such as polyurethane resins. Carbamates are incompatible with strong acids and bases, and especially incompatible with strong reducing agents such as hydrides. Flammable gaseous hydrogen is produced by the combination of active metals or nitrides with carbamates. Strongly oxidizing acids, peroxides, and hydroperoxides are incompatible with carbamates. Carbofuran is unstable in an alkaline media. .
Health HazardCarbofuran is extremely poisonous. May be fatal if swallowed, inhaled, or absorbed through skin. Contact may burn skin or eyes. Probable lethal oral dose to humans 5 to 50 mg/kg or 7 drops to 1 teaspoon for 150 lb. person.
Fire HazardMay release nitrogen oxides. Containers may explode in heat of fire. Avoid alkalies. Stable under neutral or acid conditions.
