The liver microsomal metabolism of the environmental carcinogen 3-nitrofluoranthene has been investigated. Five phenolic metabolites were isolated and characterized by their mass and NMR spectra as: 3-nitrofluoranthen-1-ol, 3-nitrofluoranthen-6-ol, 3-nitrofluoranthen-(7 or 10)-ol, 3-nitrofluoranthen-8-ol and 3-nitrofluoranthen-9-ol. While the microsomes… CONTINUE READING
