The name “metiram” (代森联) is also approved in China, but is incorrectly spelled “metriam” in GB 4839-2009 Chinese common names for pesticides.
The name “metiram-zinc” has been used in the literature, but it has no official status.
The name “polyram” was rejected as an ISO common name for this substance and was later registered as a trademark.
