Sources and Health Risk of Organochlorine Pesticides in Surface Water from Buerhatong River and Hunchun River in Northeast China

Organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) were widely used in agriculture and disease control, which causes potential harm to eco-environment and human health, and the OCP pollution is closely related to past

Organochlorine pesticides contamination in agricultural soils of southern Iran.

Level, source, and distribution of organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) in agricultural soils of Tanzania

The need for further studies on the influence of soil properties on OCPs’ transport in the soil, surface water, and air is recommended, as detection of recent inputs at some sites calls for more mapping of the O CPs in the country to strengthen their control and prevention of future risks.

Temporal and spatial variations of organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) and phthalates affecting the quality of water and sediment from Loskop Dam, South Africa

Comparison of pollution status and source apportionment for PCBs and OCPs of indoor dust from an industrial city

In this study, the pollution status of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) was investigated in indoor and outdoor dust from three different functional areas of



Organochlorine pesticides (HCHs and DDTs) in soils along the north coastal areas of the Bohai Sea, China

A systematic survey of organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) including hexachlorocyclohexane isomers (α-HCH, β-HCH, γ-HCH, δ-HCH and ΣHCH) and dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane metabolites (p,p′-DDT,

Organochlorine pesticides contaminated surface soil as reemission source in the Haihe Plain, China.

It appears that significant recent input of either the OCPs is very unlikely, and quantitative evidence indicating a net and seasonally varied transport of sigmaHCH and sigmaDDT from soil to atmosphere in the study area is provided.

Levels, distribution pattern and ecological risk assessment of organochlorines pesticides (OCPs) in water and sediments from two tributaries of the Chenab River, Pakistan

Results of the present study should be taken seriously by higher authorities as there is a serious threat to ecological integrities by OCPs exposure and results were significant when compared with the quality guidelines.
