Purification and Properties of the Simazine-Resistance Factor of Zea mays

  • Paul Castelfranco (a1) and Milford S. Brown (a1)

Abstract

A procedure has been described for the partial purification of the simazine-resistance factor of Zea. The relative solubilities in various solvents and some of the chemical properties of this factor have been studied. Pyridine and hydroxylamine were also found to bring about the conversion of simazine-C14 to the 2–hydroxy analogue. Based on these substances as models, a mechanism has been proposed for the dechlorination of simazine in Zea.
