    Organochlorines are a class of chemicals that have chlroine molecules bound to organic molecules. There a wide variety of organochlorines for example DDT, dicofol, chloroform, heptachlor, endosulfan, aldrin, dieldrin, endrin and mirex. They all have different metabolism pathways in the body and therefore different half lifes. Some can be metabolized  by mammals but most are not metabolized well, are fat soluble and therefore remain stored in the fat tissue for a very long time.
