Abstract

This study was carried out to investigate the metabolism 2, 21, 4, 41, 5, 51 – Hexachlorobiphenyl (C16-PCB). This isomer is a major containing more than 50% weight-to-weight (w/w) chlorine.1 To investigate this isomer, we obtained it in 36C1 labeled and non-labeled forms. We developed procedures to isolate and purify both forms of the hexachlorobiphenyl for further study. The 36C1 labeled biphenyl was then introduced into test animals for metabolic studies.
