The biochemical toxicology of 1,3-difluoro-2-propanol, the major ingredient of the pesticide gliftor: the potential of 4-methylpyrazole as an antidote.


Administration to rats of 1,3-difluoro-2-propanol (100 mg kg-1 body weight), the major ingredient of the pesticide gliftor, resulted in accumulation of citrate in the kidney after a 3 hour lag phase. 1,3-Difluoro-2-propanol was found to be metabolized to 1,3-difluoroacetone and ultimately to the aconitate hydratase inhibitor (-) erythrofluorocitrate and… (More)
