Part Description

LP19240-8   Toxaphene
Toxaphene is a mixture of hundreds of different chlorinated camphenes and chlorinated terpenes that result from a reaction between chlorine gas and camphene. Toxaphene can exist as a gas or yellow waxy solid that smells like pine. It is a pesticide used heavily in the 1970s and 1980s in the United States to eliminate insects on cotton and other crops, on livestock, and to kill undesirable fish in lakes. Toxaphene was banned in the United States in 1990. Toxaphene pollutes the air when it evaporates, the soil by clinging to soil fragments, and water contaminated with it that flows into rivers, lakes and ponds. Elevated levels of toxaphene are found in predatory fish and mammals where it collects in fatty tissue. The Environmental Protection Agency has listed toxaphene as a probable human carcinogen.
