Chemical Detoxication of Atrazine by Dexon1

Abstract

Abstract

The nonphytotoxic analogs of atrazine (2-chloro-4-ethylamino, 6 isopropylamino-s triazine) are hydroxyatrazine and protonated hydroxyatrazine. Distinctive infrared bands of these compounds appear at 1620, 1680, and 1740 cm-1, respectively. By monitoring these distinctive bands of the compounds, it has been demonstrated that in a combination of atrazine and dexon (p-[dimethylamino] benzenediazo sodium sulphonate) there is a time-dependent chemical change of some atrazine to protonated hydroxyatrazine indicating a reduction in phytotoxicity of the s-triazine. A part of dexon-atrazine antagonism—the reduction of atrazine toxicity to certain plants in the presence of dexon—is due to chemical reaction.
