EHC 90 (WHO, 1989), 63 (WHO, 1986; a general review of organophosphorus insecticides). Dimethoate degrades with short half-life in soil, water and plants. When used correctly, exposure of the population through air, food or water is negligible. Animals In mammals, metabolism follows the same pattern as in plants. Plants In plants, oxidised to O,O-dimethyl-phosphorothioate and hydrolysed to O,O-dimethyl-phosphorodithioate, -phosphorothioate, and -phosphate. The ester group is demethylated and the methylamino group is hydrolytically cleaved. Oxidation of dimethoate gives the corresponding oxone (omethoate q.v.), which is classified as toxic and a strong cholinesterase inhibitor, and which appears to show similar rapid degradation in environmental compartments as dimethoate. Soil/Environment Adsorption and desorption constants have been shown to be a linear function of soil silt content. Koc ranges from 16.25 (sandy loam) to 51.88 (sand/loamy sand). Aerobic DT50 2-4.1 d. Photolytic DT50 on soil surface 7-16 d. Low potential for leaching to groundwater because of rapid degradation in soil.
