[Metabolism and urinary excretion of chlorpyrifos in rats].


Urinary metabolites and biological half-life of chlorpyrifos (O, O-diethyl-O-3,5,6-trichloro-2-pyridinyl phosphorothioate) were investigated. Male Wistar rats weighing 200 g were intraperitoneally injected with chlorpyrifos at a level of 0.2 mmol/kg body weight. Both chlorpyrifos and 3,5,6-trichloro-2-pyridinol (TCP) levels in blood showed maximum values at… (More)
