Abstract
Humans exposed industrially to the insecticide carbaryl (1-naphthyl N-methylcarbamate) excrete relatively large quantities of 1-naphthol conjugated either as the sulfate or glucuronide. A colorimetric procedure is generally used to quantitatively determine 1-naphthol in human urine. However, this method lacks both the sensitivity and specificity necessary for determining the relatively small amounts of 1-naphthol excreted in the urine of agricultural workers exposed to low levels of carbaryl. The object of this investigation was to develop a rapid, sensitive method for the determination of 1-naphthol in human urine.
