Propylenethiourea (4-methylimidazolidine-2-thione) is the major breakdown product of Propineb, a fungicide of the propylenebisditiocarbamate group. The degradation pattern of Propineb is analagous to those of ethylenebisdithiocarmabates which give ethylenethiourea as the principal metabolite. This compound has been reported to possess a carcinogenic activity. [Continues.]
