Title:  Accumulation and loss of residues of 3-trifluoromethyl-4-nitrophenol (TFM) in fish muscle tissue : laboratory studies.
Authors:  Sills JB, Allen JL
Drug:  TFM-(3-Trifluoromethyl-4-nitrophenol)
Fish species:  Catfish, channel
Date:  1975
t1/2-hr:  8
est:  est
Sample:  muscle
Ave Weight (gm):  800
Ave Water temp (°C):  12
Water:  Freshwater
Dosage:  4 mg/l 12 h
Route:  BATH
Comments:  Residues in all 8 species were near limit of detection (0.01 ug/g) within 24 hrs. High pH in water reduces absorption (seen with increased hardness-which also incr pH). Temperature had little effect on residue levels. Hardness = 160-180, pH - 7.6-8, - residues at Withdrawal time 0 h=5.09, 4 h=2.28, 8 h=0.33, 12 h = 0.66, 24 h=0.04.
