Composition Metaldehyde is a tetramer of acetaldehyde; it is sometimes, incorrectly, referred to as a homopolymer of acetaldehyde.  Mol. wt. 176.2 (tetramer)  M.f. C8H16O4 (tetramer); (C2H4O)x (homopolymer)  Form Crystalline powder.  M.p. 246 ºC (sealed tube)  B.p. Sublimes at 112-115 ºC (atmospheric pressure), with partial depolymerisation  V.p. 6.6 ´ 103 mPa (25 C)  KOW logP = 0.12  Henry 3.5 Pa m3 mol-1 (calc.)  S.g./density 1.27 (20 C)  Solubility In water 222 mg/l (20 C). In toluene 530, methanol 1730 (both in mg/l, 20 C).  Stability Depolymerises and sublimes above 112 C.  F.p. 50-55 C (Abel-Pensky closed cup) 

APPLICATIONS

Mode of action Molluscicide with contact and stomach action. Metaldehyde-poisoned slugs secrete large quantities of slime, desiccate and die.
