Section 10 - Stability and Reactivity

Reactivity:

This product is unlikely to react or decompose under normal storage conditions. However, if you have

any doubts, contact the supplier for advice on shelf life properties.

Conditions to Avoid:

This product should be kept in a cool place, preferably below 30°C. Keep away from sources

of sparks or ignition. Handle and open containers carefully. Any electrical equipment in the area of this product should

be flame proofed.

Incompatibilities:

oxidising agents.

Fire Decomposition:

Carbon dioxide, and if combustion is incomplete, carbon monoxide and smoke. Nitrogen and

its compounds, and under some circumstances, oxides of nitrogen. Occasionally hydrogen cyanide gas. Water.

Carbon monoxide poisoning produces headache, weakness, nausea, dizziness, confusion, dimness of vision,

disturbance of judgment, and unconsciousness followed by coma and death. Hydrogen cyanide poisoning signs and

symptoms are weakness, dizziness, headache, nausea, vomiting, coma, convulsions, and death. Death results from

respiratory arrest. Hydrogen cyanide gas acts very rapidly; symptoms and death can both occur quickly.

Polymerisation:

This product is unlikely to undergo polymerisation processes.

Section 11 - Toxicological Information

Toxicity:

Acute toxicity: Hexazinone is harmful via the oral route, with a reported LD

of 1690 mg/kg in rats, and

860 mg/kg in male guinea pigs. Via the dermal route, it is practically nontoxic, with a reported dermal LD

in rabbits of

greater than 5278 mg/kg. Hexazinone does not cause significant skin irritation or sensitization in guinea pigs or

rabbits, but it does cause severe eye irritation in rabbits. Hexazinone's inhalation toxicity is very low, its 1-hour

inhalation LC

is greater than 7.48 mg/L in rats. Effects due to acute exposure may include irritation the eyes, nose

and throat, as well as nausea and vomiting.

Chronic toxicity: Over a 2-week period, male rats receiving dietary doses of 300 mg/kg/day showed no evidence of

cumulative toxicity. Male rats receiving doses of 50 mg/kg/day over 90 days showed no effects, but higher doses

caused decreased body weights. Body weight gain was seen in dogs at doses of about 35 mg/kg/day and higher over

1 year. Very high doses for 8 weeks did not affect hamsters and caused only increased liver weights in mice.

Reproductive effects: Female rats, fed moderate to high doses (up to 150 mg/kg) over two generations, showed no

effects on reproduction or milk production, but only reduced offspring weight. Available evidence suggests that

Hexazinone is unlikely to cause reproductive effects in humans.

Teratogenic effects: Pregnant female rats receiving doses up to 100 mg/kg/day during gestation, and rabbits

receiving up to 125 mg/kg/day, evidenced no fetal abnormalities. Teratogenic effects were observed in rats only at

maternal doses greater than 400 mg/kg/day during gestation. It is unlikely that Hexazinone would pose a teratogenic

effects in humans under normal conditions.

Mutagenic effects: Hexazinone showed no mutagenic activity in the Ames assay and tests using Chinese hamster

ovary cell cultures. In living animal tests, no changes in chromosomal structure occurred. In other laboratory analyses

of its capacity to induce genetic disruption, results were inconclusive. The evidence suggests Hexazinone is either

slightly or nonmutagenic.

Carcinogenic effects: Rats, mice, and dogs have been tested for 1 to 2 years on diets containing up to 500 mg/kg.

Hexazinone was not carcinogenic in rats, and was only carcinogenic in mice at dietary levels of over 300 mg/kg. At

these levels in mice, liver adenomas were observed. These studies suggest that Hexazinone is unlikely to be

carcinogenic to humans under normal circumstances.

Organ toxicity: Target organs affected in lab animals by chronic Hexazinone exposure include the liver.

Fate in humans and animals: Hexazinone is fairly rapidly processed and excreted by animal systems. Rats typically

excrete Hexazinone almost completely within 3 to 6 days, the majority in urine. Long-term exposure does not diminish

this rapid processing and elimination; rats given prior exposure for 2 weeks excreted almost all of the product within 3

days. Less than 1% of the parent Hexazinone was detected in urine and faeces. There does not appear to be any

significant tissue accumulation. Dairy cows given small amounts of Hexazinone in their diets for 30 days had no

detectable residues in milk, fat, liver, kidney, or lean muscle, but did have minute amounts of a Hexazinone metabolite

in their milk. Lactating goats given small amounts of Hexazinone for 5 days also had small amounts of the compound

in their milk and livers.

Section 12 - Ecological Information

Effects on birds: Hexazinone is slightly to practically nontoxic to birds. The acute oral LD

of Hexazinone in

bobwhite quail is 2258 mg/kg. The 5- to 8-day dietary LC

in bobwhite quail and mallard ducklings is greater than

10,000 ppm.

Effects on aquatic organisms: Hexazinone is slightly toxic to fish and other freshwater organisms. Some of the

reported 96-hour LC

values include: rainbow trout, 320 mg/L; bluegill, 370 mg/L; fathead minnow, 274 mg/L. The 48-

hour LC

for Hexazinone in the water flea, Daphnia magna, is 151 mg/L. The bioconcentration factor in bluegill

sunfish is only seven times the ambient water concentration, indicating very low bioaccumulation in fish.

Effects on other organisms: Hexazinone is nontoxic to honey bees. The herbicide is toxic to larch trees (Larix spp.),

and should not be used for weed control in forested areas.

Environmental Fate:

Breakdown in soil and groundwater: Hexazinone is of moderate to high persistence in the soil environment.

Measured field half-lives range from less than 30 to 180 days, with a representative value of about 90 days.

Hexazinone is broken down by soil microbes, which release carbon dioxide in the process. Sunlight may also break

down the compound via photodegradation. The rate of breakdown under natural field conditions will depend on many

site-specific variables, including sunlight, rainfall, soil type, and rate of application. Hexazinone does not evaporate to

any appreciable extent from soil. Hexazinone is very poorly adsorbed to soil particles, very soluble in water, and

slowly degraded, so it is likely to be mobile in most soils and has the potential to contaminant groundwater.

Breakdown in water: Photodecomposition, biodegradation, and dilution are the prime mechanisms for loss of

Hexazinone activity in aquatic systems.

Breakdown in vegetation: Hexazinone is readily absorbed in the root zone and translocated throughout the plant. It

is less mobile following uptake from the foliage. It is converted in non-susceptible plants to less phytotoxic

compounds. In susceptible plants, it is more persistent and can result in disruption of photosynthesis and chloroplast

damage.
