Abstract
A metabolite of DDT, 2,2-bis(p-chlorophenyl)ethanol, is a substrate of crystalline liver alcohol dehydrogenase. The oxidation of the substrate was detected spectrophotometrically. The p-nitrophenylhydrazone derivative of the product, 2,2-bis(p-chlorophenyl)acetaldehyde, was identified by comparing its mass spectrum and thin-layer chromatographic behavior with that of an authentic sample.
