About Lindane (HCH)

Lindane is an isomer that does not exist in nature: it is artificially obtained in a series of chemical processes. It was worldwide used as a pesticide and for the treatment of parasites during the second part of the 20th Century and even in more recent times. Presently, the past production of this compound has become a first order environmental problem. Indeed, due to its riskiness and its persistence in the environment, the lindane, together with other HCH isomers, were included in the list of persistent organic pollutants by the Stockholm Convention.
