Roles Classification
Chemical Role(s): persistent organic pollutant
Any environmental contaminant that is resistant to environmental degradation through photolytic, biological or chemical processes. Such substances can have significant impact on health and the environment, as they persist in the environment, bioaccumulate in animal tissue and so biomagnify in food chains.
Biological Role(s): GABA-gated chloride channel antagonist

antibacterial agent
A substance (or active part thereof) that kills or slows the growth of bacteria.
antifungal agent
An antimicrobial agent that destroys fungi by suppressing their ability to grow or reproduce.
Application(s): agrochemical
An agrochemical is a substance that is used in agriculture or horticulture.
Strictly, a substance intended to kill members of the class Insecta. In common usage, any substance used for preventing, destroying, repelling or controlling insects.
(via organochlorine insecticide )
Strictly, a substance intended to kill pests. In common usage, any substance used for controlling, preventing, or destroying animal, microbiological or plant pests.
(via organochlorine pesticide )
