I'm looking for information regarding TBTO (tributyltin oxide):

- Symptoms & effects (especially objectively measurable effects, such as
thyroid function) in humans, persistence of effects, etc.
- Biocidal/fungicidal uses & methods of delivering TBTO.
- Methods of confirming exposure in humans.
- Persistence in air (e.g. would there be any point in doing air sampling if
the TBTO was applied months ago?)

I haven't done anything more than a very cursory websearch yet so please
don't spend your time doing my work for me.  Just checking with the List as
part of my research in case one of you out there is already an "expert" on
this particular compound, or has info on it readily available.
