(S-methyl-14C) Aldicarb sulfone (2-methyl-2-(methylsulfonyl)proprionaldehyde O-(methylcarbamonyl)oxime) was incubated under aerobic and anaerobic conditions in surface and subsurface soils from Florida and Georgia. Evolution of (14CO2), formation of metabolites, and amounts of extractable and nonextractable 14C were measured in soils incubated with (14C) aldicarb sulfone. Mineralization and disappearance of the carbamate varied greatly from soil to soil. Aldicarb sulfone nitrile and aldicarb sulfone acid were the two major metabolites. In addition, a TLC polar product, aldicarb sulfone oxime, and three unidentified products were detected.
