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

Interconversions and toxicity changes in hexachlorocyclohexane isomers on dispersion in water

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.
