Metabolism of DL-Epinephrine-7-H3 D-Bitartrate

  • Elwood H. LaBrosse


Numerous reports, including those presented at last year’s Symposium on Tracer Applications of Tritium, have emphasized the advantages of using tritium labeling in studies of the metabolism of biologically important compounds. One particular advantage is that it is possible to prepare tritium-labeled compounds with high specific activity. In addition, the low-energy radiation which is given off by tritium allows the use in humans of much larger amounts of radioactivity than is the case with other radioactive elements, such as C14.
