The metabolic fate of [14C]-methyl-(E)-2-{2-[6-(2-cyanophenoxy)pyrimidin-4-yloxy]phenyl}-3-methoxyacrylate (azoxystrobin) was determined in the male and female rat following a single oral dose of 1 and 100 mg kg−1 and in surgically prepared, bile ductcannulated rats following a single oral dose of 100 mg kg−1.Azoxystrobin was extensively metabolized with at least 15 metabolites. There was a sex difference, with females producing more metabolites than males.The two principal metabolic pathways were hydrolysis of the methoxyacid followed by glucuronic acid conjugation and glutathione conjugation of the cyanophenyl ring followed by further metabolism leading to the mercapturic acid. There were also several other minor pathways.
