Abstract

Ten novel 4-(4,6-dimethoxypyrimidin-2-yloxy)phenoxy acetates and 4-(4,6-dimethylpyrimidin-2-yloxy)phenoxy acetates were synthesized with hydroquinone, 2-methylsulfonyl-4,6-disubstituted-pyrimidine and chloroacetic ester as starting materials. The products were characterized by IR, 1H-NMR, MS spectra and elemental analyses. Preliminary bioassay indicates that the target compounds possess high herbicidal activity against monocotyledonous plants such as Digitaria sanguinalis L. at concentrations of 100 mg/L and 50 mg/L.
