The identification of five unreported lindane metabolites recovered from rat urine

Summary

Previously unreported metabolites from the urine of rats fed lindane have been identified as 3,4-dichlorophenol, 2,4,6-trichlorophenol, 2,3,4,5-tetrachlorophenol, 2,3,4,6-tetrachlorophenol and 2,3,4,5,6-pentachloro-2-cyclohexen-1-ol. While the 3,4-dichlorophenol is a minor metabolite, the others are excreted in greater quantities than either 2,3,5- or 2,4,5-trichlorophenol, previously identified lindane metabolites. The excretion of tetrachlorophenols and PCCOL require a revision in the currently accepted theory regarding the metabolism of lindane by mammals.
