Abstract

The past three decade has seen the widespread use of DDT as an insecticide. As a persistent insecticide, its use has prompted a great amount of research into the fate of DDT in living organisms. A large number of metabolites of DDT has been found and many identified, although not all of the metabolites were found in all of the experimental bacterium, insects, or mammals.
