    2. 2. What is it?<br />Endosulfan is an organ chlorine insecticide and acaricide, and acts as a contact poison in a wide variety of insects and mites. <br />
    3. 3. History<br />Endosulfan was developed around the year of 1950.<br />In 1954, Hoechst AG which was a German chemical life science company won the approval of USDA to have Endosulfan in the U.S.<br />
    4. 4. Uses<br />Used as a contact and stomach insecticide in a great number of food and non food crops.<br />Controls over 100 different insect pests<br />
    5. 5. Molecular Photo<br />
    6. 6. IUAPC Name<br />6,7,8,9,10,10-Hexachloro-1,5,5a,6,9,9a-hexahydro-6,9-methano-2,4,3-benzodioxathiepin-3-oxide (C9H6Cl6O3S). <br />
    7. 7. Chemical Properties<br />Molar mass406.95 <br />Density 1.745n g/cm³ <br />Melting Point70-100 °C<br />Solubility in watern0.33 mg/L<br />
    8. 8. Toxicity <br />highly to moderately toxic to bird species<br />very toxic to aquatic organisms<br />also shown high toxicity in rats<br />
    9. 9. Health<br />
    10. 10. What I learned<br />Extremely harmful to people if it comes in contact<br />It is used on vegetables fruits tobacco cotton and other farm crops similar to these.<br />
    11. 11. Reflection<br />Is the reason for using the molecule good enough to justify the use of that substance? <br /> Yes and No<br />It is good because it keeps the insects off of our food<br />It is bad because if it comes in contact with us it can be really harmful.<br />
