The hydrolysis of triazophos was studied in buffered solutions in the range of pH 4-10 and in sodium hydroxide solutions with pH values up to 12. The results showed that the degradation of triazophos in the above solutions followed simple pseudo-first-order kinetics. At 35degreesC, the rate constants in buffered solutions ranged from 0.0222 d(-1) at pH 4 to 0.5357 d(-1) at pH 10, and increased to 0.6251 h(-1) in 0.01 mol/L sodium hydroxide solution. The results also indicated that the base-catalysis was more important than acid-catalysis in the hydrolysis of triazophos. On the basis of the Arrhenius plot, the calculated activation energy (E-a) and the frequency factor (A) for the hydrolysis of triazophos in buffered solution of pH 10 were 78.6 kJ/mol and 1.13 x 10(13) d(-1), respectively. Hydrolytic products of triazophos in buffered solutions of pH 4 and 10, as well as in sodium hydroxide solution of pH 11, were identified as their corresponding trimethylsilyl derivatives with a gas chromatography-mass spectrometer (GC-MS). The possible hydrolytic pathways of triazophos were also proposed.
