What is Rotenone Powder?
Rotenone powder is an odorless, colorless, crystalline isoflavone used as a broad-spectrum insecticide, piscicide, and pesticide. It occurs naturally in the seeds and stems of several plants, such as the jicama vine plant, and the roots of several members of Fabaceae. It was the first described member of the family of chemical compounds known as rotenoids. Evidence has come to suggest that rotenone may cause Parkinson's disease to develop from both acute and prolonged exposure.
The earliest record of the now-known rotenone powder-containing plants used for killing leaf-eating caterpillars was in 1848, and for centuries, the same plants were used to poison fish. The active chemical component was first isolated in 1895 by a French botanist, Emmanuel Geoffroy, who called it nicouline, from a specimen of Robinia nicou, now called Lonchocarpus nicou, while traveling in French Guiana. He wrote about this research in his thesis, published posthumously in 1895 after his death from a parasitic disease. In 1902 Kazuo Nagai, Japanese chemical engineer of the Government-General of Taiwan, isolated a pure crystalline compound from Derris elliptica which he called rotenone, after the Taiwanaese name of the plant(Min Nan Chinese: lôo-tîn) translated into Japanese rōten (ローテン). By 1930, nicouline and rotenone were established to be chemically the same.

Rotenone Powder Benefits:
Rotenone powder is used as a pesticide, insecticide, and as a nonselective piscicide (fish killer). It is commercialized as cubé, tuba, or derris, in single preparation or in synergistic combination with other insecticides. In the United States and Canada, all uses of rotenone except as a piscicide are being phased out.
Rotenone powder for sale is a naturally occurring organic heteropentacyclic compound and member of rotenones that is found in the roots of several plant species. It is a mitochondrial NADH:ubiquinone reductase inhibitor, toxin, and metabolite, and is used as an antineoplastic agent and insecticide. It is characterized as a colorless to brownish or a white to brownish-white crystalline solid that is odorless. Exposure occurs by inhalation, ingestion, or contact.
1.Rotenone as an insecticide
Rotenone powder is one of seven naturally occurring chemicals permitted for occasional restricted use in organic farming. It is generally used to control aphids as well as the raspberry beetle and sawflies. However, it is rarely used as it can have an adverse effect on beneficial species as well as pests. Unlike modern, synthetic pesticides it breaks down easily and quickly and so was thought to pose little danger. It is also used as a garden dust to control insects and rotenone-based pesticides are on sale across Britain. Rotenone is also on sale as an insecticide shampoo for dogs, cattle and sheep, which is used to kill lice.
2.Rotenone as a piscicide
Rotenone powder is the most commonly used pesticide to eradicate fish populations. For many years, introduced fish species have caused desirable native species to suffer because of the unwanted species’ competitiveness. When a pond or lake has an unbalanced fish population and is therefore undesirable to recreational fishermen, a common solution is to eradicate the fish population completely and introduce new fish in a more desirable combination.
Some fish are more resistant to rotenone than others and require a higher concentration to have the same effect. Resistant fish include bullheads, goldfish and bowfin. Rotenone powder for sale treatments will usually kill fish within 24-36 hours. When poisoned with rotenone, fish swim erratically and move to shallower water or come to the surface gasping for air. After that, their ventilation rate slows and they sink to the bottom where they remain until death.
Parkinson's disease is one of the most common neurodegenerative diseases, affecting about 1% of all people over the age of 65. It affects the Pope, Michael J. Fox and Muhammad Ali. The main symptoms include:
Parkinson's sufferers tend to walk in a fast shuffle. They find it hard to start and once moving cannot quickly stop or change direction. People with Parkinson’s disease can also develop a blank, mask-like facial expression and a soft, monotonous voice. These symptoms are caused by the progressive degeneration of dopamine-containing neurones in a part of the brain called the substantia nigra. It is often associated with dementia, probably because the degenerative process also occurs in other parts of the brain. Another characteristic feature of Parkinson's disease is that microscopic protein deposits, known as Lewy bodies are found in the brain.
Parkinson's disease often occurs with no obvious cause, but it may be the result of pathological damage, and some cases have been linked to genetic risk factors. The main risk factor is age, but symptoms can also be drug-induced, the main drugs involved being those that either reduce the amount of dopamine in the brain or block dopamine receptors. Many antipsychotic drugs block D2 (dopamine) receptors and their main side-effect is to cause movement disorders. These disorders are reversible on stopping drug treatment. Genetically engineered mice lacking D2-receptors show greatly reduced spontaneous movement, resembling Parkinson’s disease. Unlike schizophrenia and many other neurological disorders, Parkinson’s disease shows no hereditary tendency, and therefore an environmental cause seems more likely.
Rotenone Powder Applications:
1. Agriculture:used in the control of aphids ,thrips,moths ,beetles,spoders,mites etc.
2.Aquiculture:to control predator fished in shrimos and prawn breeding.
3.Apiculture:to control the varroosis.
Rotenone Powder Dosage
Rotenone appears to be moderately toxic to humans. The oral lethal dose has been estimated to be 300–500 mg/kg, but toxicity is likely to be strongly formulation-dependent, and the presence of other bioactive components such as the synergist piperonyl butoxide in the commercial mixture might considerably influence its potency. In practice, human poisoning is extremely rare probably because of the low rotenone content of many commercial products, its frequently poor uptake from the gastrointrestinal tract, and its rapid emetic action
