  • Phorate, generically, a powerful pesticide effective against insects, mites, and nematodes.
  • Phorate is a systemic insecticide that acts by inhibiting cholinesterases, enzymes involved in transmitting nerve impulses. Chemically, it is an organophosphate, O,O-diethyl S-(ethylthio)methyl phosphorodithioate. Like all organophosphates, it is related to the nerve gases and is among the
    most toxic of all pesticides to vertebrates, including humans.
  • Phosphorus pentasulfide and ethyl alcohol are reacted slowly in the presence of Diethyl thio phosphoric acid (DETA) heel at 60-650C. Hydrogen
    sulphide evolves from the reaction mixture. The gas is scrubbed with caustic lye. It gets converted to Di- sodium sulphide and sodium hydrogen
    sulphide, which has a by-product value. After the completion of reaction, the product is charged in another reactor through a sparkler filter. The
    product is reacted with formaldehyde and ethyl mercaptan at room temperature to produce crude phorate. This is a condensation reaction. Crude Phorate thus obtained is washed using washing soda and steam stripped to remove volatile organics and moisture.
  • The hydrolysis of phorate, an organophosphorus pesticide, was studied under simulated environmental conditions. Several metal oxides (aluminum hydroxide, hematite, goethite, and ferrihydrite) were chosen to represent the solid phase in natural aquatic systems.
  • Phorate [O,O-diethyl-S-(ethylthio)methyl phosphoradiothioate] degrading bacteria were isolated from agricultural
    soil and characterized based on their morphological and biochemical characteristics.
  • Phorate and disulfoton are organophosphate insecticides containing three oxidizable sulfurs, including a thioether.
  • The effects of a synthetic nematicide Phorate (O,O-diethyl thiomethyl phosphoro dithioate) on some biochemical components of the seeds of treated soyabean cultivars TGM 80 and TGM 344 results that treated plants had significantly (P = 0.05) higher crude fibre, crude protein, fat/oil and
    phosphorus contents but lower free fatty acids than the control.
  • Phorate can be determined
    by GC using capillary columns with a flame photometric detector (FPD) or a nitrogen-phosphorus
    detector (NPD).
  • Phorate accident happened in a tea estate in Idukki. Bamboo is being grown in this plantation as a part of diversification plan following the fall in the price of tea.
  •  A boy of 16 years who was working as a temporary labourer became ill while applying phorate.
