Rinskor active is a new 6-arylpicolinate herbicide that is used for postemergent control of grass, broadleaf, and sedge weeds in rice and other crops. In order to register a new herbicide, carbon-14-labeled radiotracers of the active ingredient are required to track the parent along with the metabolites and degradants formed in the environment. This paper discusses the novel route that was used to incorporate carbon-14 into the pyridine ring of Rinskor to support registration studies.
