ⓘ Dichlorodiphenyldichloroethane

Dichlorodiphenyldichloroethane is an organochlorine insecticide that is slightly irritating to the skin. DDD is a metabolite of DDT. DDD is colorless and crystalline, it is closely related chemically and is similar in properties to DDT, but it is considered to be less toxic to animals than DDT. The molecular formula for DDD is 2 CHCHCl 2 or C 14 H 10 Cl 4, whereas the formula for DDT is 2 CHCCl 3 or C 14 H 9 Cl 5.

DDD in" the group classification B2”, meaning it is a probable human carcinogen. This is based on an increase in the frequency of lung tumors in males and female mice, liver tumors in of male mice, and thyroid tumors in male rats. A further basis is that DDD is so similar to And is a metabolite of DDT, another probable human carcinogen.

DDD is no longer registered for use in agriculture in the United States, but the General population continue to be subjected to it because of its long time persistence. The main source of exposure is oral ingestion of food.

1946-the date of earliest recorded use in the English language abbreviation" DDD” to stand for dichlorodiphenyldichloroethane, as far as could be determined.
