Summary

A series of 24 carbamates was obtained by structural modification of methomyl, or S-methyl-N[(methylcarbamoyl)oxy]thioacetimidate, an insecticide. The biological activity of this series and that of 7 other compounds was studied by measuring root growth of germinating corn plants with Texas and normal cytoplasm. The contribution of each substitution to phytotoxicity was determined and the sites on the molecule related to phytotoxicity and specificity localized.
