Degradation of chlorobenzuron in water and metabolism in fish


Journal of Environmental Sciences 4(4): 46-51
Degradation of chlorobenzuron in water and metabolism in fish
The degradation of the insect growth regulator 1-(2-chlorobenzoyl)-3-(4-chlorophenyl) urea (CCU) in water and its accumulation and metabolism in grass carp fry (Ctenopharyngodon idella) was studied using HPLC. The results of acute toxicity tests of both CCU and its metabolites are also reported. CCU degraded quickly in an aerobic aquatic environment and the primary metabolites of CCU were 4-chlorophenyl urea and orthochlorobenzoic acid.
