1. The disposition and biotransformation of pentachlorophenol (PCP) in the red abalone (Haliotis rufescens) have been determined. 2. In a flow-through system, three abalones were exposed to 1.2 mg/l of [U-14C]PCP for 5 h to determine bioconcentration and tissue distribution. Retained residues were quantified from radioactivity, while excreted residues were identified and quantified by h.p.l.c. and determination of radioactivity. 3. The 5-h total concentration factor ranged from 16.0 to 21.5… CONTINUE READING
