Abstract

The production of insecticides and their use in agriculture, public health and forestry result in the contamination of soils, water and vegetation. A lew harmless, economical and inert adsorbents are screened to decontaminate water both from orRanophosphorus and organochlorine insecticides. Among the different adsorbents screened, wood charcoal powder 35/40 mesh size at 4% level could remove BHC, DDT, lindane and at 5% level fenitrothion, parathion and cidial. Malathion was removed to about 80%. Since the material is readily available, cheap aDd harmless, it can be ased to purify insecticide contaminated water for drinking purposes.
