Title Urinary excretion of N-acetyl cysteine conjugate of cis-1,3-dichloropropene by exposed individuals
Bibliographic information July/Aug. 1984, Vol.39, No.4, p.271-275. 7 ref.
Abstract Cis- and trans-1,3-dichloropropene (DCP) are the major active components of the DD and Telone soil fumigants. An assay method to determine the N-acetyl cysteine conjugate of cis-DCP in urine is described. The recoveries of the conjugate were correlated with airborne concentrations and duration of exposure (r=0.83). This method could be used for the biological monitoring of workers handling soil fumigants.
