Sorption and diffusion of the herbicide pyridate and its metabolite CL9673 were measured in reconstituted cuticular waxes isolated from Chenopodium album L. and Hordeum vulgare L. (cultivar Igri) leaves. The compounds have the same basic chemical structure, except that pyridate is characterized by a C8-alkyl chain bound via a thioester to the ionizable hydroxyl group of CL9673. Sorption of the weak acid CL9673 from aqueous solutions into cuticular waxes was pH-dependent, and the apparent wax… CONTINUE READING
