Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) are organic chemical compounds that have adverse, long-term effects on people and the environment.

The most well-known example of a POP is dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT), they are found in a wide range of chemicals used in industrial and agricultural applications.
