Abstract
This sequel to the Handbook for Pesticide Disposal by Common Chemical Methods has examined chemical detoxification/degradation methods for 40 pesticides. The objectives for this study are the same as described in the companion: to develop practical chemical methods by which the layman can detoxify pesticides and to delineate hazards associated with the detoxification methods. The 40 pesticides were selected on the basis of their toxicological properties, their consumption, and their representation of other pesticides. Chemistry was reviewed for each through literature search and personal contacts with pesticide manufacturers and other sources. Although many of the selected pesticides are susceptible to alkaline hydrolysis, this approach is only recommended for 11 of the pesticides: monocrotophos; phosphamidon; fensulfothion; PennCap-M (microencapsulated methyl parathion); disulfoton; phorate; methamidophos; carbofuran; aldicarb; methomyl; and captafol. Details for treating each of the 11 pesticides are presented. No acceptable chemical detoxification was found for the remaining pesticides: ronnel; dimethoate; Dyfonate; Def; EPTC; molinate; thiram; propanil; Diphenamid; chloroxuron; simazine; cyanazine; Amitrole; paraquat; PCNB; dinoseb; chloropicrin; chlorobenzilate; endrin; D-D; dibromochloropropane (DBCP); BHC; dicamba; sodium fluoroacetate (Compound 1080); creosote; and warfarin.
