An in vivo trout model was used to monito the major routes and rates of pentachlorophenol uptake and elimination. A first-order kinetic model and observed data were used to generate fitted and predicted rate constants required for evaluation of first-order kinetic. The fitted first-order uptake-depuration curves for all experimental animals agreed with those observed suggesting first-order kinetics approximated the behavior of whole-body (14)C-pentachlorophenol (PCP) burden.
