Infobox references

Mipafox is a highly toxic organophosphate insecticide that can cause delayed neurotoxicity and paralysis.[1] It is an irreversible acetylcholinesterase inhibitor that is resistant to oxime reactivators.[2]

Synthesis[edit]

Phosphoryl chloride is reacted with isopropylamine. The resulting product is then reacted with potassium fluoride or ammonium fluoride to form mipafox.[3]
