Title Acute dermal toxicities of various organophosphate insecticides in mice
Bibliographic information Mar. 1982, Vol. 9, No.3, p.491-497. 27 ref.
Abstract Dermal LD50 values for parathion, methylparathion, diazinon, azinphos-methyl and mevinphos were determined. Values were generated for the ED50 for cholinesterase and acetylcholinesterase. Lethality was greatest with mevinosphos, followed by parathion, methyl parathion, diazinon and azinphos-methyl. Cholinesterase ED50 values were roughly equivalent to the LD50 for all except diazinon.
