||The purpose of the experiment was to test the report observation that o,p'-DDT is converted to p,p'-DDT by measuring the (14)C activity of the p,p'-DDT found in the animals fed (14)C-labeled o,p'-DDT. If this conversion does take place, (14)C-p,p'-DDT would be recovered. To study the storage and possible isomeric conversion of o,p'-DDT, 12 female Sprague-Dawley rats weighing 200-250 g each were fed 50 ppm o,p'-DDT in their diet for 12 weeks. No sign of toxicity developed in any animal.
