Interconversions and toxicity changes in hexachlorocyclohexane isomers on dispersion in water

Interconversions and toxicity changes in hexachlorocyclohexane isomers on dispersion in water

Journal of Environmental Science and Health. Part. B, Pesticides, Food Contaminants, and Agricultural Wastes 16(6): 691-701

Studies on the transformations of hexachlorocyclohexane isomers, alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta-, in aqueous solution were carried out at 25 +/- 1 degree C over a period of four weeks. Gas liquid chromatographic technique was used for analysis. The results indicated a loss as well as interconversion of all the four isomers with time. The resulting changes in toxicity of the aqueous solution were studied against Drosophila using topical application.
