Flupropadine is a rodenticide.[1][2] It was sold under the trade name Rhone Poulenc.[3] Originally made by May and Baker[4] and tested on farms in the United Kingdom it was withdrawn from use by 1994.[5] Flupropadine has a delayed action, and so rodents can have multiple feeds from the bait before being killed.[6]

The molecule has two rings, one is a m-hexafluoroxylene, and the other is piperidine. Flupropadine is made from 3,5-bis(trifluoromethyl)iodobeenzene, 2-propynol, and 4-tert-butylpiperidine.[3]
