Properties: Crystals from ethyl acetate + Skellysolve B, mp 149-150°. [a]D26 +76° (c = 1 in chloroform). uv max (alc): 226, 320 nm (log e 4.54, 3.68). Freely sol in alc, ether, acetone, chloroform. Very slightly sol in petr ether, benzene, carbon tetrachloride. Practically insol in water and in 5% aq solns of hydrochloric acid, sodium carbonate and sodium bicarbonate. In aq sodium hydroxide a milky suspension is formed. This clears on warming, but all potency is lost.
Melting point: mp 149-150°
Optical Rotation: [a]D26 +76° (c = 1 in chloroform)
Absorption maximum: uv max (alc): 226, 320 nm (log e 4.54, 3.68)
Use: Experimentally as fungicide, insecticide, miticide.
