Some chlorinated hydrocarbons such as the industrial chemicals PCBs and chlorinated pesticides such as DDT are considered pollutants because they entered the environment, including the oceans in the s to s and became distributed globally by atmospheric and oceanic transport processes resulting in these.

SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATIONS: The oceans are an ultimate accumulation site for the persistent chlorinated hydrocarbons. As much as 25 percent of the DDT compounds produced to date may have been transferred to the sea. The amount of DDT compounds in the marine biota is estimated to be less than percent of total production, yet this amount has produced a demonstrable impact.

In addition, a variety of simple chlorinated hydrocarbons including dichloromethane, chloroform, and carbon tetrachloride have been isolated from marine algae. A majority of the chloromethane in the environment is produced naturally by biological decomposition, forest fires, and volcanoes.

In this article on chlorinated hydrocarbons in the marine environment some consideration will be given to both aspects.

More ecotoxological attention has been given to the higher-molecular-weight chlorinated hydrocarbon compounds which are common contaminants in estuarine and marine environments.

Chlorinated hydrocarbons, together with organophosphates, comprise the majority of all synthetic insecticides.

Abstract. PCBs, DDT compounds and HCH isomers were detected in the air and surface waters of the North Pacific and Indian Oceans, including the Bering Sea, East China Sea, South China Sea, Bay of Bengal and the Arabian by: Halocarbon compounds are chemicals in which one or more carbon atoms are linked by covalent bonds with one or more halogen atoms (fluorine, chlorine, bromine or iodine – group 17) resulting Chlorinated hydrocarbons in the marine environment book the formation of organofluorine compounds, organochlorine compounds, organobromine compounds, and organoiodine brokenrranch.comne halocarbons are the most common and are called organochlorides.

The study indicated that residues of the higher-molecular-weight chlorinated hydrocarbons, such as DDT and PCB, can be highly persistent once released to coastal marine ecosystems and that their accumulation in surficial bottom sediments is the most likely cause of this persistence observed in the biota of the discharge zone.

Chlorinated and brominated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, measured in waste incinerator samples, are found to have a dioxin-like toxicity contribution similar to that for dioxins. Abstract Nevertheless, sources of ClPAHs in urban air have not been studied, due to.

Abstract: Chlorinated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (ClPAHs) are an emerging class of environmental contaminants, but the sources of these chemicals in the environment are not well-known.

Persistent chlorinated hydrocarbons of agricultural and non-agricultural interest, such as 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis-(p-chlorophenyl)ethane (DDT), PCBs and hexachlorobenzene, now have a global distribution and can be detected in wildlife samples in variable amounts Polychlorobiphenyls together with DDE are the main types of chlorinated Author: Thomas Roy Crompton.

Removal of releases of petroleum hydrocarbons and chlorinated hydrocarbons from soil and groundwater has been a nationwide effort since the mids.

Successes have been rare. Mechanical removal systems have been found to require an inordinate amount of time. The limiting factors of oil biodegradation in the marine environment were studied.

belonging to chlorinated hydrocarbons, they are not pesticides. However, because of their wide use and resistance to degradation in the environment, PCBs are known as one of the major organochlorine pollutants found in the environment. Extensive PCB contamination exists.
