Heptachlor is a chlorinated dicyclopentadiene insecticide which is persistent in the environment and accumulates in the food chain. Its use is severely restricted under the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants and it is also subject to global restriction under the Rotterdam Convention on Prior Informed Consent. - Heptachlor, Restek - Heptachlor - Each: : Industrial & Scientific.

Book January heptachlor by microbial activity rather than to the photo-oxidation of heptachlor in the atmosphere (Bidleman et. al., a,b). Bioaccumulation.

Heptachlor and heptachlor epoxide have been found in many food classes (21,22). Human milk can be contaminated with heptachlor epoxide (23). Based on a total diet study conducted by the US Food and Drug Administration, estimated daily intakes of heptachlor and heptachlor epoxide for men aged 25–30 were µg and µg, respectively (24). Heptachlor (CAS ) Can be absorbed through the skin. US ACGIH Threshold Limit Values: Skin designation Heptachlor (CAS ) Can be absorbed through the skin.

Pure heptachlor is a white powder that smells like camphor (mothballs). The less pure grade is tan. Trade names include Heptagran®, Basaklor®, Drinox®, Soleptax®, Termide®, and Velsicol ®. Heptachlor was used extensively in the past for killing insects in homes, buildings, and on food crops, especially corn.

  Transformation of heptachlor to heptachlor epoxide in liquid culture was evaluated and showed that its metabolite was mostly found in 50 μg/mL heptachlor treatments or % of parent heptachlor with the positive values of redox potential suggesting . Richard P. Pohanish, in Sittig's Handbook of Pesticides and Agricultural Chemicals (Second Edition), Short Term Exposure. Heptachlor can cause a feeling of anxiety, headache, dizziness, weakness, a sensation of “pins and needles” on the skin, and muscle twitching. Heptachlor has been demonstrated to be highly toxic to aquatic life, to persist for prolonged periods in the environment. Heptachlor Epoxide CAS Number: What is heptachlor epoxide? Heptachlor epoxide is a man-made compound that looks like a white powder. Heptachlor epoxide is created when a substance called heptachlor is released to the environment and mixes with oxygen.
