Dibenzoylhydrazine (DBH) is a synthetic chemical compound with the chemical formulation C14H12N2O2. It is sometimes known as a benzoic acid amine, and is related to benzoyl peroxide, tricarban, isocarboxazid, and hydrazine. The substance was patented as an "ecdysone receptor ligand-binding domain structure" on 9 December 2004 by Michael C. Lawrence and nine others at the Australian CSIRO,[1] and since 1991 it had been known to be effective in compound form against insect pests of the orders Lepidoptera, Coleoptera, and Hemiptera.[2]

Tebufenozide, methoxyfenozide and halofenozide are classed as commercial DBHs.[3]

In 2013, a compound of the substance was tested with promising results against larvae of Anopheles gambiae, the major vector for human malaria.[3]
