Clomazone is an agricultural herbicide, and has been the active ingredient of products named "Command" and "Commence". The molecule consists of a 2-chlorobenzyl group bound to a N-O heterocycle called Isoxazole. It is a white solid.

Clomazone suppresses the biosynthesis of chlorophyll and other plant pigments.[1][2]
