Located in Gujarat, India, we specialize in manufacturing Clorsulon. Shreeji Pharma International manufactures all its products under GMP site, which has all the necessary regulatory support. The professionals pack this safely in different types of packaging, as per customer demand. The chemical formula of chlorsulon is C8H8Cl3N3O4S2, while the IUPAC name is 2-amino-6-(1,2,2-trichloroethenyl)benzene-1,3-disulfonamide. This benzenedisulfonamide derivative exhibits fasciolicidal properties. A narrow-spectrum flukicide, it is predominantly applied to livestock (cattle, sheep, and goats). A majority of its dosage forms are in the form of injections, but sometimes it is also available as a drench. Although the compound is easily absorbed into the bloodstream, maximum plasma levels are reached after 14 hours of ingestion.

How does it work?
Clorsulon inhibits enzymes involved in the glycolytic pathway, which is the main source of energy for flukes. According to further research, Clorsulon inhibits 8-phosphoglycerate kinase and phospho-glyceromutase and blocks oxidation of glucose to acetate and propionate.
Applications Or where it is used:
The benzene sulphonamide family of agents, including chlorsulon, are used to treat and control adult flukes. Cattle are treated with veterinary medicinal products containing clorsulon.
An invention discloses a method for preparing clorsulon by condensation with chloroform, chlorination with m-nitrobenzaldehyde at low temperature, hydrazine hydrate reduction, chlorosulfuric acid reduction, and finally ammonification. The present invention avoids the use of large benzene of toxic content; it also avoids the use of harmful chlorine, the reduction reaction employs hydrazine hydrate comparing environmental protection, and hydrazine hydrate reductions are smaller than those of iron powder; extremely good catalyzer iron trichloride, and absorbent charcoal carrier; nitrogen is able to provide good product protection, and yield meets bibliographical requirements; work simplification; reaction conditions are gentle, and environmental friendliness, has good prospects for commercial use.
How to use:
In veterinary medicine, chlorsulon is an active ingredient that is narrow-spectrum antiparasitic. Livestock is treated with it to prevent liver flukes. It does not work on agricultural pests or household pests. It belongs to the sulphonamide chemical class.
Dosage of usage:
Closulon is an anthelmintic with a narrow spectrum of activity against some flukes, like Fasciola hepatica. There is no effect on roundworms, tapeworms, or external parasites. In ruminants, it is used mostly as an injectable, very rarely as a drench, and usually in combination with ivermectin to increase its flukicidal effect.
