    Aldrin is an organochlorine insecticide that was widely used until the s, when it was banned in most countries. Aldrin is a member of the so-called "classic organochlorines" (COC) group of pesticides. COCs enjoyed a very sharp rise in popularity during and after The Second World noteworthy examples of COCs include DDT. After research showed that organochlorines can be highly.

      Dieldrin, aldrin, and mirex failed to induce PVE because they do not possess estrogenic activity. INTRODUCTION The four polycyclic chlorinated hydrocarbon insecticdes investigated are similar in chemical structure. Among the cyclodienes aldrin and dieldrin, aldrin is readily oxidized in plants and animals to its expoxide, dieldrin (Hayes, ).   Photochemical Transformations (Principally Atmospheric) Reported for Aldrin and Dieldrin (Verschueren, ) films of aldrin irradiated at > nm have been reported and exposure of an aldrin film to sunlight for 1 month resulted in a solution containing % aldrin, % photoaldrin, % dieldrin, % photodieldrin, and % of an.

Dieldrin is a chlorinated hydrocarbon originally produced in by J. Hyman & Co, Denver, as an in is closely related to reacts further to form dieldrin. Aldrin is not toxic to insects; it is oxidized in the insect to form dieldrin which is the active compound. Both dieldrin and aldrin are named after the Diels-Alder reaction which is used to form aldrin from.

Special occupational hazard review for aldrin/dieldrin. Aldrin and dieldrin are insecticides with similar chemical structures.

They are discussed together in this fact sheet because aldrin quickly breaks down to dieldrin in the body and in the environment.

Similar comparison was extended to α-endosulfan and endosulfan sulfate. The analysis of the metabolites showed that the levels of p, p ′-DDD and dieldrin were higher than those of p, p ′-DDT and aldrin indicating no recent use of. Endrin is a solid, white, almost odorless substance that was used as a pesticide to control insects, rodents, and birds.

Endrin has not been produced or sold for general use in the United States since Plasma, fat and urine samples from 71 men working in a factory making aldrin, dieldrin and endrin were analysed for chlorinated hydrocarbon insecticides and their metabolites.

Details of their type of work and the time spent on various operations were available. The average period of employment was 12 years. No endrin was found in any sample and aldrin was detected only in the plasma. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, Center for Disease Control, Public Health Service.
