Atrazine chemistry and biochemistry

Posted: June 12, 2015 in Medicine raw material

Atrazine was invented in 1958 in the Geigy laboratories as the additional of a alternation of 1,3,5-triazines.

Atrazine is able from cyanuric chloride, which is advised sequentially with ethylamine and isopropyl amine. Like added triazine herbicides, atrazine functions by bounden to the plastoquinone-binding protein in photosystem II, which animals lack. Plant afterlife after-effects from starvation and oxidative accident acquired by breakdown in the electron carriage process. Oxidative accident is accelerated at top ablaze intensity.

Atrazine’s furnishings in bodies and animals primarily absorb the endocrine system. Studies advance that atrazine is an endocrine disruptor that can could cause hormone imbalance.
