Physical Chemistry:

Diuron is a colorles crystaline compound in its pure form. Water Solubility: 42 mg/L @ 25 C. Solubility in Other Solvents: s.s. in acetone, benzene, butyl stearate. Melting Point: 158-159 C. Vapor Pressure: 0.41 mPa @ 50 C. Partition Coefficient: Not Available. Adsorption Coefficient: 480.


Diuron is slightly toxic to mammals. The oral LD50 in rats is 3400 mg/kg. The dermal LD50 is greater than 2000 mg/kg. Some signs of central nervous system depression have been noted at high levels of diuron exposure. For humans, the only reported case of acute, oral exposure to the herbicide produced no significant symptoms or toxicity.


Diuron is a substituted urea herbicide used to control a wide variety of annual and perennial broadleaf and grassy weeds, as well as mosses. It is used on non-crop areas and many agricultural crops such as fruit, cotton, sugar cane, alfalfa, and wheat. Diuron works by inhibiting photosynthesis.
