Organotin compounds have been used in various fields of technology. For example, they are used as stabilizers for polyvinyl chloride, antioxidants for rubber, and catalysts for the polymerization of olefins by the Ziegler method. They are employed in agriculture and industry as biologically active agents for controlling plant diseases, for combatting slime formation in the paper industry, as disinfectants for nonmetallic materials, for combating marine growths on boats, and for controlling some species of intestinal worms in poultry and agricultural animals. The organotin compounds are so important in industry and agriculture that in spite of the relatively high cost of tin, thousands of tons yearly of its various derivatives are manufactured industrially.
