Physical Chemistry:

Pure isomers of cypermethrin form colorless crystals. When mixed isomers are present, cypermethrin is a viscous semi-solid or a viscous, yellow liquid.Water Solubility: 0.01 mg/L @ 20 C; insoluble in water.Solubility in Other Solvents: methanol v.s.; acetone v.s.; xylene v.s.Melting Point: 60-80 C (pure isomers).Vapor Pressure: 5.1 x 10-7 nPa @ 70 C.Partition Coefficient: 6.6020.Adsorption Coefficient: 100,000.


Cypermethrin is a moderately toxic material by dermal absorption or ingestion.The oral LD50 for cypermethrin in rats is 250 mg/kg (in corn oil) or 4123 mg/kg (in water). EPA reports an oral LD50 of 187 to 326 mg/kg in male rats and 150 to 500 mg/kg in female rats. The oral LD50 varies from 367 to 2000 mg/kg in female rats, and from 82 to 779 mg/kg in mice, depending on the ratio of cis/trans- isomers present. This wide variation in toxicity may reflect different mixtures of isomers in the materials tested. The dermal LD50 in rats is 1600 mg/kg and in rabbits is greater than 2000 mg/kg.


Cypermethrin is a synthetic pyrethroid insecticide used to control many pests, including moth pests of cotton, fruit, and vegetable crops. It is also used for crack, crevice, and spot treatment to control insect pests in stores, warehouses, industrial buildings, houses, apartment buildings, greenhouses, laboratories, and on ships, railcars, buses, trucks, and aircraft. It may also be used in non-food areas in schools, nursing homes, hospitals, restaurants, hotels, in food processing plants, and as a barrier treatment insect repellent for horses.
