Their toxic actions arise from competition with vitamin K in the liver (vitamin K antagonism). 9) has been used as a rodenticide. It is a lipophilic molecule of low water solubility that acts as an antagonist to vitamin K (Chapter 7). More recently, because wild rodents developed resistance to warfarin, a number of structurally related second-generation anticoagulant rodenticides (sometimes called super warfarins) have been marketed. These include diphenacoum, bromadiolone, brodifacoum, and flocoumafen.
Organochlorine insecticides are stable solids of limited vapor pressure, very low water solubility, and high lipophilicity. Some are highly persistent in their original form or as stable metabolites. All the examples given here act as nerve poisons (see Chapter 7). Commercial DDT contains 70% to 80% of the insecticidal isomer p,p´-DDT. Related insecticides include rhothane (DDD) and methoxychlor. The insecticidal properties of DDT were discovered by Paul Müller of the firm of Ciba-Geigy in 1939.
The only option in this case is secure long-term underground storage. In the United Kingdom, the long-term goal is to bury the waste deep underground, although at the time of writing the exact locations remain the subjects of much political debate. 4 lists examples of the wide range of half-lives of different isotopes. 4 Biochemistry Some radioactive isotopes are especially dangerous because they follow the same biochemical pathways in the body as stable elements. For example, more than 80% of the total iodine in the human body is contained in the thyroid gland where it forms an essential component of the thyroxin growth hormone.
