Part Description

LP18018-9   Chlordane
Chlordane is a colorless or amber-colored liquid organochlorine insecticide. Because chlordane is a likely human carcinogen, its application to soil in the United States was halted in April, 1988. Chlordane may now be used only to treat fire ants in power transformers. Chlordane is considered moderately to highly toxic when in contact or absorbed by the eyes and skins, inhaled, or ingested. Extreme exposure to chlordane can lead to symptoms of poisoning including nausea, vomiting and gut pain followed by convulsions. Early signs of exposure include agitation or excitation, but may be followed by depression, loss of coordination, fatigue, and confusion. Individuals who are chronically exposed to chlordane may show signs of jaundice. Chlordane damages blood vessels, kidneys and can lead to aplastic anemia and leukemia. Chlordane is highly poisonous to freshwater invertebrates and fish. It does bioaccumulate in bacteria and in marine and freshwater fish. Chlordane is extremely toxic to bees and earthworms. Chlordane is broken down when heated into poisonous gases including phosgene, toxic and corrosive fumes of chlorine, and oxides of carbon. It may remain in contaminated soil for up to 20 years.[] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
