Mevinphos is an insecticide that acts as an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor to control insects in a wide range of crops. It is most commonly used for the control of chewing and sucking insects, as well as spider mites.
Mevinphos is produced by the reaction of trimethyl phosphite with chloroacetoacetate.
