ⓘ Naled

Naled is an organophosphate insecticide. Its chemical name is dimethyl 1.2-dibromo-2.2-dichloroethylphosphate.

Naled is stable in anhydrous condition and should be stored away from light. It must also be stored at normal pressure and temperature. It decomposes in the presence of water and alkali, and produces toxic fumes of chloride when exposed to acids or acid gases. Contact with metals, reducing agents, or sulfhydryls to cause the ice to release the bromide and return to dichlorvos.
