Photolysis of acetamiprid was investigated in detail under different reaction conditions. The photolysis of acetamiprid in solution followed pseudo-first-order kinetics under the experimental conditions. Acetamiprid kept stable under irradiation of high-pressure xenon lamp but degraded relatively fast when exposure to medium-pressure mercury lamp irradiation. The experimental results indicated that the degradation rate of acetamiprid in acetone was the largest among the used media and acetamiprid was more stable in basic media. The addition of oxygen, increase of light intensity and temperature will enhance the photolysis.
