Abstract:
Bromination of organic compounds in certain cases greatly increases toxicity to wool-digesting insects. A brominated salicylanilide (Diaphene) and a brominated organochlorine insecticide of very low mammalian toxicity (Bromodan, LD₅₀ oral, rats 12,900) can be easily applied to wool and are each promising, durable moth proofing agents.
