In this study, the degradation of diclofop-methyl (DM) and its main metabolite, diclofop (DC), in two soils under aerobic and anaerobic conditions were investigated using enantioselective HPLC. Under aerobic or anaerobic conditions, rapid hydrolysis to the corresponding acid diclofop (DC)was observed. The results from this study revealed that the degradation of DM in the two soils is not enantioselective, and the calculated half-lives (t(1/2)) for the two soils were both less than 1 day… CONTINUE READING
