Fate of Acrolein, an Agricultural Biocide, Overtime

Fate of Acrolein, an Agricultural Biocide, Overtime
Research paper
Description: 

Acrolein is an efficient agricultural herbicide within irrigation canal ditches and a biocide within oilfield water-flood systems. The fate of acrolein is typically attributed to evaporation, however, it is found that acrolein also dimerizes in water. This hetero-Diels-alder product is stable over an extended period of time, thus losing its original function as an effective biocide and herbicide. Various 1D/2D NMR and GC-EIMS techniques were used to elucidate the structure of said dimerization product, found to be 5,6-dihydro-2H-pyran-3-carbaldehyde.
