  1. Endrin

    Endrin is an organochloride that was primarily used as an insecticide, as well as a rodenticide . It is a colourless odorless solid, although commercial samples are often off-white. Endrin was also sold as an emulsifiable solution known commercially as Shell Endrix. The compound endrin became infamous as a persistent organic pollutant and for this reason it is banned in many countries.
