Structure-toxicity relationships for alkanones and alkenones.


The relative toxicity (log IGC-1(50)) of 54 selected alkanones, both aliphatic and aromatic, as well as, alkenones and alkynones was evaluated in the static Tetrahymena pyriformis population growth assay. Excess toxicity, an indicator of bioreactivity, was associated only with the alpha-beta unsaturated alkenones and alkynones. Moreover, the alkynones were… (More)
