    Chlorimuron ethyl


    Chlorimuron ethyl is a sparingly soluble (1.2 mg/mL) sulfonylurea herbicidal agent.

    Mechanism of ActionChlorimuron ethyl inhibits actetolactate synthase (ALS), an enzyme involved in synthesis of branched chain amino acids including valine, leucine, and isoleucine.
    Plant Biology ApplicationsInhibition of ALS can lead to oxidative stress and a decrease in root nodule formation. Compared to other herbicides, chlorimuron ethyl is a very potent herbicide.
    Molecular FormulaC15H15ClN4O6S
