Amitrole is a low molecular weight, polar, amphoteric and high melting solid. It is surprisingly involatile for such a small molecule. Amitrole is reported as being a chelate but ligand exchange is unlikely to contribute significantly as a mechanism of sorption to moist soils. The herbicide is non-Selective and hence is used in orchards and industrial areas for total weed control. It is sometimes applied at very high rates when used for total weed control. The mode of action of the compound is ...

Amitrole also induces liver tumors in mice when fed at levels in excess of the maximum tolerated dose; it also produces thyroid carcinomas along with the liver tumors (EPA, l984a; EPA, l985a). Amitrole is an antithyroid compound that resembles thiourea in its effect on the thyroid gland. Prolonged administration leads to a reduction in the levels of circulating thyroid hormones and a compensatory increase in the production of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH). This results in.
