Organonotins: Organotin compounds are chemical compounds with tin and other compounds.
Our interest is the monobutylins (MBT), Dibutylins (DBT) and Tributyltins (TBT)’s. “Tributyltins” are used as industrial biocides, e.g. as antifungal agents in textiles and paper, wood pulp and paper mill systems, breweries, and industrial cooling systems. Tributyltin oxide has been extensively used as a wood preservative. Di-butyltins (DBT) may be immunotoxic.
