Tributyltin (TBT)

TBT is a biocidal chemical compound, which is toxic to living organisms. It was widely used as a pesticide and in the antifouling paints of commercial vessels, the shipping industry and pleasure craft in the 1960s and 70s. The use of tin-based antifouling paints has been banned by the International Maritime Organization since 1 January 2003.
