This particular trait allowed several salts to be obtained with a commercial objective in mind. Studies comparing the efficiency of various salts have demonstrated that isopropylamine has an increased phytotoxicity in plant. However, the salt, in association with a surfactant, increases absorption by the plant Duke, In this investigation, it was chosen to obtain the herbicide under the same conditions of the commercial product.
To achieve that, the acid glyphosate obtained in the previous step was submitted to amination with Ultramine is an ethoxylated fatty amine with moisturizing characteristics. It is recommended for agrochemical formulations in its pure or combined form as a moisturizing or solubilizing agent in soluble concentrates of water-based herbicidal formulations, with a spreading effect and as an aid to improve penetration. Samples obtained from this chemical reaction were analyzed by HPLC with a fluorescence detector, using middle-infrared spectroscopy for solid and liquid samples.
Two assays were conducted to determine the 15N isotopic dilution in the formulated glyphosate, using glycine enriched at 6.
The contribution of the nitrogen source from the acid glyphosate and from amination MIPA , as well as from the tensioactive agent surfactant can be determined in the final product based on the isotopic mass balance. Figure 3 illustrates schematically how the glyphosate formulation is obtained from the MIPA acid added of Surfactant S. The isotopic mass balance equation can be represented by Equation 1. Considering that the MIPA oleamide monoisopropylamide and Surfactant ultramine mixture have natural isotopic abundance 0.
These conditions approximately correspond to the normal ones found in the field when glyphosate is applied. The weed Lolium multiflorum, which is susceptible to the herbicide glyphosate was used in this study.
The seeds were initially placed to germinate in trays. The plots consisted of 0. The experimental design was completely randomized with four replicates.
The treatments consisted of isopropylamine salt sources at the commercial dose recommended for the control of Lolium multiflorum, corresponding to g a. The treatments were applied when the plants had four completely-expanded leaves, on average. After the herbicide had been applied, the pots were returned to the growth chamber and they were irrigated on the following day, ensuring the leaf absorption of the herbicide.
Treatment toxicity evaluations were made at 7, 14, and 21 days after application DAA , using a percentage scale, in which a zero rating meant no damage effect to the plant and a rating represented complete plant suppression or death.
After the last evaluation, the above-ground part and root of the plants were collected to determine green and dry mass yield. The F test on analysis of variance was applied to the obtained data. Results and Discussion Glyphosate synthesis from dialkyl phosphite and glycine Patent No. To evaluate the N percentage in the herbicide, synthesis assays were performed using glycine p. Sigma and the laboratory-synthesized glycine as the starting points.
The results for these tests are presented in Table 1. The natural isotopic abundance of the heavy nitrogen isotope is 0. According to the infrared analyses, the results were similar between synthesized samples and the Sigma standard. The use of synthesized or natural glycine did not influence the final result. When compared against the standard, the results apparently indicate the same substance. The results can be seen in Figures 4, 5, and 6, respectively, for the standard, the synthesized sample with natural abundance, and the synthesized 15N-labeled sample.
At the same time, analyses were made using middle infrared with raw samples. When the glyphosate sample with natural abundance, the 15N-labeled sample, and the formulated standard provided commercial product were compared, the emitted peaks practically overlapped. Regarding the 15N-enriched glyphosate samples, in which glycine previously enriched in the isotope was used 6. The contribution from each nitrogen source was obtained from isotopic balance equations.
There was no isotopic fractionation in the conversion from 15N-glycine into acid glyphosate, and the isotopic dilution while obtaining the formulated glyphosate was practically the same of the assays that used acid glyphosate containing 6.
The 15N isotopic dilution in the final formulated product due to the MIPA and Surfactant introduction does not represent a problem in the use of the herbicide as tracer, considering that what must be taken into account is the active principle enrichment. Effectiveness Test Equal toxicity response injuries were obtained among the tested treatments, only differing from the control, in the evaluated periods Figure 7.
Consequently, in relation to the control effectiveness parameter against the weed Lolium multiflorum by different isopropylamine salt sources, all of them were not statistically different.
The variation coefficient found in the variable above-ground for fresh and dry mass were For each treatment, a general decrease in fresh of the root system was observed relative to its corresponding control. These results agree with those obtained in the toxicity evaluation Figures 7 and 8. This pattern was also maintained for dry mass of the above-ground part of Lolium multiflorum Figure 8.
The fresh and dry phytomass for the root system had the same pattern observed for the above-ground part of this plant. However, smaller decreases than those for the above-ground part of Lolium multiflorum were observed relative to the control. Figure 8. As a result, active principle-labeling becomes the factor that should be taken into consideration.

Nitrogen Isotope Techniques. According to the infrared analyses, the results were similar between synthesized samples and the Sigma standard. It is a non-selective, systemic, and post-emergent herbicide, included in the Brazilian toxicological classification class IV - little toxic , as intensively used in weed control Kertesz et al. The natural isotopic abundance of the heavy nitrogen isotope is 0.
Therefore, it becomes important to conduct studies dealing with the physicochemical properties of glyphosate, its interaction with water and soil, as well as the development of analytical tools that will allow its detection and quantification in natural samples.

Production of formulated Glyphosate One of the steps in obtaining the formulated herbicide consists in the synthesis of the glyphosate salt, which can be achieved by neutralizing the acid glyphosate with a base, such as monoisopropylamine.
Several nitrogen compounds can be produced from labeled ammonium, among which are: anhydrous ammonia Bendassolli et al. Roman et al.
Studies comparing the efficiency of various salts have demonstrated that isopropylamine has an increased phytotoxicity in plant. In this way, the sugar pucker can be controlled which ideally results in an increased affinity towards complementary RNA . Consequently, in relation to the control effectiveness parameter against the weed Lolium multiflorum by different isopropylamine salt sources, all of them were not statistically different. Thus, the final amino acid labeling is a function of the isotopic abundance of the ammonia used initially. To that effect, amination of a-haloacids was performed, using carboxylic chloroacetic acid and labeled aqueous ammonia 15NH3.
