The reaction of the aminotriazole derivative 3 with different aromatic aldehydes in propanol containing catalytic amount of acetic acid yielded the corresponding arylideneamino derivatives 4a-c.
(2001) investigated the electrochemical behaviour of Cu-Ni alloy in NaCl medium polluted by sulphide and inhibiting effect of aminotriazole. The potentiodynamic and electrochemical impedance measurements showed that sulphide accelerate the corrosion of the alloy in NaCl solution.

Pesticides have been found to interfere with thyroid function by preventing iodine uptake [e.g., mancozeb, thiocyanates, 2,4-D (2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid)] and peroxidation (e.g., aminotriazole, endosulfan, malathion), and by preventing the conversion of thyroxine ([T.sub.4]) to triiodothyronine ([T.sub.3]) (e.g., aminotriazole, dimethoate, fenvalerate) (Colborn 2004).
1959 The "Thanksgiving Cranberry Scare." A warning was issued that cranberries on the market were a hazard since an unknown quantity had been treated with a cancer-causing agent (aminotriazole).
The catalase inhibitor aminotriazole attenuated ethanol preference in mice (Koechling and Amit 1994), suggesting that inhibiting catalase results in decreased levels of acetaldehyde and a decline in this particular ethanol-induced behavior.
Recently, we observed increased protection against aminotriazole treatment in tobacco plants that express the Arabidopsis APX3 gene (Wang et al., 1999).
The book covers a wide range of specific environmental controversies, including the cranberry scare (due to residues of the weed killer aminotriazole) of 1959, the debate over the pesticide DDT, and controversies over the effects of dioxin, asbestos, Alar, and nitrites.
