(Also known as: chlorthiofos; CM S-2957; celathion; OMS 1342; S 2597)
Chlorthiophos is an obsolete organophosphate insecticide used mainly for the control of ants and mites. The substance has not been extensively studied and so very little data is available. Chlorthiophos is non-volatile and considered to be non-mobile. It is highly toxic to mammals, is a cholinesterase inhibitor and a neurotoxin.
The following alerts are based on the data in the tables below. An absence of an alert does not imply the substance has no implications for human health, biodiversity or the environment but just that we do not have the data to form a judgement.
