The fact sheet summarizes the information in the RED document for the reregistration case Tris(hydroxymethyl) nitromethane, which contains the active ingredient 2-(hydroxymethyl)-2-nitro-1,3-propanediol. 2-(hydroxymethyl)-2-nitro-1,3-propanediol was first registered in the U.S. in 1955, as an industrial bactericide and slimicide. EPA has issued three relevant Data Call-In (DCI) Notices: the Antimicrobial DCI in March 1987, the comprehensive reregistration Phase 4 DCI in September 1992, and a third DCI in August 1993, the latter for residue data. Currently, nine pesticide products are registered which contain this active ingredient.
