Hexachlorocyclohexane or the abbreviation HCH is identified as a monocyclic chlorinated hydrocarbon. HCH was discovered in 1825by Faraday, who just had discovered benzene. By reacting benzene with chlorine in bright sunlight, formation of HCH was observed. Neither Faraday nor the Dutch chemist Van der Linden, who in 1912 isolated the pure -isomer from a HCH mixture, realized the insecticidal potential of the compounds they produced (Amadori, 1993). The insecticidal properties of HCH were… CONTINUE READING
