Chem. Abstr. Name: 1,1,2,3,4,4-Hexachloro-1,3-butadiene
The occurrence of hexachlorobutadiene as a by-product in the production of various chlorinated hydrocarbons for over 50 years and its use in some areas as a pesticide indicate that widespread human exposure in both the occupational and general environment occurs. This is confirmed by reports of its occurrence in the environment.
