The concept of degradation of a particle of DDT under simulated field conditions was studied. Optimum reaction conditions and the characterization of the principal reaction products of reductive degradation of DDT were studied. Product studies included water solubility, vapor pressure of pure DDEt, the hydrolytic stability, and resistance to further reduction. The toxic testing to fish of the two principal degradation products of reductive decomposition of DDT, DDEt and TTTB, consisted of the examination of the acute toxicity to the fathead minnow and from this study, to carry out long-term chronic studies on the same fish. The long-term effect on survival, egg production, hatch rate, and survival and growth of fry was examined. The acute toxicity to rainbow trout and bluegills was also briefly studied.
