Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A simple head-space gas-chromatographic method was developed for the quantitative determination of ethylene dichloride (EDC) in rat blood and tissues. The method is sensitive to 25 ng/ml of blood or 50 ng/g of tissue. EDC recovery from blood, liver, lung, spleen, brain, kidney and epididymal adipose tissue was investigated. The method described appears satisfactory for routine determinations of EDC in biological samples.
