3H-Dodecylcyclohexane was incorporated in rat diet in order to study the metabolic utilization by mammals of a monocycloparaffin chosen as a typical naphthenic constituent of mineral oils. Dodecylcyclohexane was largely absorbed. No elimination of the hydrocabon was observed in urine while an extended excretion of3H occurred via this route. About 7% of absorbed dodecylcyclohexane was stored in the carcass, while the rest was ω-oxidized to cyclohexyldodecanoic acid, which incorporated into… CONTINUE READING
