Agency. ACUTE TOXICITY Chlordane is moderately to highly toxic through all routes of exposure. Symptoms usually start within 45 minutes to several hours after exposure to a toxic dose. Convulsions may be the first sign of poisoning or they may be preceded by nausea, vomiting and gut pain.

      Chlordane is a broad-spectrum insecticide used to control termites and pests on field crops. Since , all uses of chlordane have been banned in the United States (U.S. EPA, ). However chlordane is still available for human exposure because it is a very stable chemical and is anticipated to persist in the environment for some time. The almost-full pint bottle of pesticide in the garage of Carville G. Bevans Jr. has not been opened for eight, 10, maybe 13 years now. Like other homeowners across the nation, Bevans had bought.

Chlordane is a member of a group of chemical compounds generically termed “chlorinated cyclodienes.” For its use as an insecticide, and especially as a termiticide, it is available in pure and technical grades.

Pure chlordane is a viscous, colorless, odorless liquid. Its solubility in water is approximately 9 µg/L at 25°C. It is highly soluble in most organic solvents, including. Chlordane - Identification, toxicity, use, water pollution potential, ecological toxicity and regulatory information: Note: See Working with the Information on this Page section below for important notes about this data.

Any underlined term with a book icon has additional information. Technical chlordane, CAS No.is a mixture of chlordane and chlordane related compounds having a lower percentage of the cis and trans isomers and a larger percentage of other compounds relative to mixtures with the above CAS number.

Each peer-reviewed profile identifies and reviews the key literature that describes a hazardous substance's toxicologic properties. Other pertinent literature is also presented, but is described in less detail than the key studies.

$ Chlordane manufactured prior to was sometimes referred to as “early chlordane,” due to variable concentrations of the unreacted intermediate hexachlorocyclopentadiene. Afterthe percentage of this intermediate was kept below 1%, resulting in lower File Size: KB.

Chlordane is a persistent organochlorine insecticide that was used to control termites in homes and against pests on agricultural crops, lawns, and gardens. It was also used as a fumigating agent.

Chlordane is also known as chlordan and clordano and has the molecular formula of C 10 H 6 Cl was first used in the United States inbut all use of chlordane was canceled in April Reproductive toxicity This product is not expected to cause reproductive or developmental effects.

Depending on the type of insect, sometimes chlordane powder was mixed with varying amounts of water. Chlordane (Technical); CASRN ) and, therefore, may be a major contributor to chlordane toxicity.

Available occupational studies, although limited, give no indication that the liver is a target organ in humans as a consequence of chronic exposure to low levels of chlordane. Alvarez andFile Size: KB. Emily N. Reinke, Adam T.

Deck, in Wildlife Toxicity Assessments for Chemicals of Military Concern, Introduction. Chlordane (CAS No. ) is a mixture of structurally related cyclodienes (primarily octachloro-tetrahydro-methanoindanes) that was widely used as a broad-spectrum organochlorine-pesticide from to [1].Subsequently, the use of chlordane was severely.

Toxfree, Inc. provides affordable, state-of-the-art air testing for chlordane, heptachlor, aldrin, and dieldrin in homes and assists owners with understanding the health risks posed by breathing these insecticides and approaches to reduce air levels.
