Physical Chemistry:

Metalaxyl is a colorless, odorless crystal. Water Solubility: 7100 mg/L @ 20 C.Solubility in Other Solvents: v.s. in methanol, benzene, and hexane.Melting Point: 71.8-72.3 C.Vapor Pressure: 0.293 mPa @ 20 C.Adsorption Coefficient: 50.


The oral LD50 in rats is 669 mg/kg and the dermal LD50 is greater than 3100 mg/kg, indicating slight toxicity by ingestion and dermal application. Rabbits exhibited slight eye and skin irritation, but guinea pigs displayed no sensitization after metalaxyl exposure. No information was available regarding the inhalation toxicity of metalaxyl.


Metalaxyl is a systemic, benzenoid fungicide used in mixtures as a foliar spray for tropical and subtropical crops, as a soil treatment for control of soil-borne pathogens, and as a seed treatment to control downy mildews. Metalaxyl may be used on many different food crops, including tobacco, ornamentals, conifer, and turf applications.
