Title Is the determination of thioethers in urine samples useful for the biological monitoring of genotoxic effects in the workplace environment?
Original title Is de bepaling van thioethers in urinemonsters bruikbaar bij de biologische monitoring van genotoxische belasting door de arbeidsomgeving? [in Dutch]
Bibliographic information 20 Jan. 1982, Vol.60, No.2, p.30-34. Illus. 7 ref.
Abstract Report on thio ether urinalysis among workers exposed to certain chemicals (e.g. incineration of chemical wastes and increase in urinary thio ether excretion on the day of exposure). Thio ether determination is useful in view of the electrophilic properties of chemicals and may serve as a warning signal.
