insecticide à base d'hydrocarbures chlorés / (ex.: DDT)
Explanation:
chlorinated hydrocarbon insecticide
insecticide à base d'hydrocarbures
chlorés n. m.

The hydrocarbons may be either aliphatic or aromatic and the materials either solid or liquid; they are used as cleaning fluids, fumigants, and insecticides. Many are quite toxic
(carbon tetrachloride) and often have a sharp and distinctive odor. Some also have a narcotic and anesthetic effect (chloroform); their handling and use in any concentrated form should be performed with caution. One group of insecticides (DDT and related compounds) is noteworthy in view of environmental considerations.

dichlorodiphenyl trichloroethane
Abrév. DDT
dichlorodiphenyltrichloréthane n. m.
Produit de synthèse organo-halogène, très toxique, principalement utilisé sous diverses formes comme insecticide de contact.

.. DDT


Explanation:
À propos du DDT:

The pesticide DDT has a long and checkered history. Today, it evokes particularly contentious argument. Though environmentalists have come to demand this poison's elimination from the face of the Earth, some tropical-disease specialists laud DDT as an irreplaceable weapon in their fight against malaria. Which view prevails may be a life-and-death matter for nearly a half-billion people.

First created in the late 19th century, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane's insecticidal properties weren't discovered until around 1939. Almost at once, communities throughout the developed world--led by those in the United States--embraced this low-cost, broad-spectrum insecticide.
