    Abstract: The ability of zeolites to abstract and denature organochloride pesticides finds application in water purification practices. In this study, activated faujasite X and Y zeolites were separately exposed to 1, 2 and 4 ppm concentrations of 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2’ bis(p-chlorophenyl) ethane (dichloro dipheny trichloroethane - DDT) water solutions.
