  • DDT is an insecticide used to control insect-borne diseases.
  • Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) is a organochlorine contact insecticide that kills by acting as a nerve poison.
  • DDT was originally used during World War II to control typhus which was spread by the body louse.
  • DDT is moderately to slightly toxic to mammals.
  • DDT is very fat-soluble and is therefore found in fatty foods such as meat and diary products.
  • DDT, DDD and DDE are all strongly suspected of being environmental endocrine disrupters (chemicals that affect the hormonal system.
  • DDT is one of nine persistent organic pollutants (POPs) which bioaccumulate, and which are transported by air and water currents from warmer
    climates to temperate zones, where they have never been used.
  • DDT is an organochlorine, similar in structure to the insecticide methoxychlor and the acaricide dicofol.
  • DDT is available in several different forms: aerosols, dustable powders, emulsifiable concentrates, granules and wettable powders.
  • DDT and DDE, like other organochlorines, have been shown to have xenoestrogenic activity, meaning they are chemically similar enough to
    estrogens to trigger hormonal responses in animals.
  • DDT is created by the reaction of trichloromethanal with chlorobenzene (C6H5Cl).
  • A screening-level assessment was conducted to characterize the level of impact that would result from 0.1% DDT contamination in the dicofol
    product formulations.
  • Specific binding sites for DDT and cis-permethrin have been detected in the central nervous system of the tobacco budworm, Heliothis virescens (F.). and its predator, Chrysopn carnea Stephens.
  • The application of laccase from white-rot fungi (polyporus) is to remove dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane in soil.
  • To development an immunodetection method for DDT, 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis(4-chorophenyl)ethane (p,pí- DDT) and its metabolites five derivatives of DDT haptens have been synthesised and characterized as coating ligands for antibody evaluation.
  • The potential for biodegradation of DDT by soil microorganisms through enrichment and isolation of DDT biodegraders from soils without a history of prior exposure to DDT was done.
  • A novel technique has been used for detection of the organochlorine insecticide compound dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) by measuring
    the nanometer-scale bending of a microcantilever produced by differential surface stress.
  • A novel technique, high temperature headspace liquid-phase microextraction (HS-LPME) with room temperature ionic liquid (RTIL), 1-butyl-
    3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate ([C4MIM][PF6]) as extractant, was developed for the analysis of dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane
    (p,p -DDTand o,p -DDT) and its metabolites.
  • An improved activated carbon technique using dichloromethane instead of chloroform, and slower leaching rate of 15 mL/min to quantify DDT and its metabolites in surface water.
  • Dicofol - the active ingredient being a mixture of approximately 80% p,pí-dicofol and 20% o,pí-dicofol - is produced by hydroxylation of DDT as  emulsifiable concentrate and wettable powder formulations.
  • The World Health Organization issued a position statement promoting the use of indoor residual spraying (IRS) with
    dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) for malaria vector control in epidemic and endemic areas.
