Main ChEBI Ontology Automatic Xrefs Reactions Pathways Models
ChEBI Name bensulfuron
Definition An N-sulfonylurea that is urea in which a hydrogen attached to one of the nitrogens has been replaced by an (o-carboxybenzyl)sulfonyl group, while a hydrogen attached to the other nitrogen has been replaced by a 4,6-dimethoxypyrimidin-2-yl group. An acetolactate synthase inhibitor, it is used (particularly as its methyl ester, bensulfuron-methyl) as a herbicide for the control of a variety of both annual and perennial weeds in crops, particularly wheat and rice.
