Triclopyr Molecular Structure
Synonyms: 3,4,6-trichloro-2-pyridinyloxyacetic acid; (3,5,6-trichloro-2-pyridinyl)oxyacetic acid; [(3,5,6-trichloropyridin-2-yl)oxy]acetic acid; 3,5,6-trichloro-2- pyridyloxyacetic acid
Triclopyr is a systemic, foliar herbicide in the pyridine group. It is used to control broadleaf weeds while leaving grasses and conifers unaffected.
Triclopyr is effective on woody plants and is used for brush control in rights of way and defoliation of wooded areas.
It is used to produce an excess of nucleic acid, which can cause some tissues to be changed into meristem, causing the leaf, stem and root of the plant to be deformed. Used in the afforestation, the maintenance of fire protection, the improvement of the pine and the forest stand.
Also used for broadleaf weeds, particularly Creeping Charlie (Glechoma hederacea). It is sold under the trade names Turflon, Weed-B-Gon (purple label), and Brush-B-Gon ("Poison Ivy Killer") for these purposes. It is a major ingredient in Confront, which was withdrawn from most uses due to concerns about compost contamination from the other major ingredient, clopyralid.
Triclopyr breaks down in soil with a half-life of between 30 and 90 days. One of the byproducts of breakdown, trichloropyridinol, remains in the soil for up to a year. Triclopyr degrades rapidly in water. It remains active in decaying vegetation for about 3 months.
The compound is slightly toxic to ducks (LD50 = 1698 mg/kg) and quail (LD50 = 3000 mg/kg). It has been found non-toxic to bees and very slightly toxic to fish (Rainbow trout LC50 (96 hrs.) = 117 ppm).
