- n. Plural form of hexachlorocyclohexane.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Exposure of Arctic Ocean surface water, as a result of decreasing ice cover, could increase the movement of contaminants such as hexachlorocyclohexanes (HCHs) and toxaphene into the atmosphere, speeding movement within or out of the Arctic .
Solvent switching can, for example, lead spontaneously to concentration amplification of hexachlorocyclohexanes (HCHs) in water because HCH partitions strongly out of air , or high concentrations of PCBs in phytoplankton due to strong partitioning out of water and into lipids .
