Qualitative and quantitative analyses of phenol, phenylglucuronide, and phenylsulfate in urine and plasma by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry.


Phenol and related compounds are toxic agents to which humans are exposed. Analysis of phenolic compounds may be used as an index of exposure. In this report a method for analysis of phenol, phenylglucuronide, phenylsulfate, and related mono- and dihydroxybenzenes as their propanoate esters by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry is presented. The use of… (More)
