Trichloronate is a highly toxic organophosphate insecticide.[2] It is used against vegetable fly larvae and soil pests.[1]

Case reports indicate exposure to the chemical can cause fatal encephalopathy.[3] Its aquatic toxicity has been measured at significantly higher against Ceriodaphnia dubia and Daphnia magna.[4]
