- ... Metamitron (1) does not undergo hydrolysis at pH 1-8 and up to 5 M H2SO4. The product of its two-electron reduction, 1,6-dihydrometamitron (2), on the other hand, undergoes at pH <3 relatively fast hydrolysis. The dependence of the measured rate constant on acidity indicates that the completely protonated form (AH2 2+) predominating in strongly acidic media undergoes hydrolysis slower than the spe ...
