tributyltin

A toxic triorganotin which has been used as an industrial biocide—e.g., as antifungal in textile and paper production, breweries, industrial cooling systems and agriculture. While it was widely used in marine anti-fouling paint, its toxicity to molluscs led to its ban by the International Maritime Organization.
