Abstract : This report documents the results of the gas chromatography tandem mass spectrometry analyses of blood, tissues, and organs (heart, lung, liver, kidney, and brain) that were obtained from guinea pigs intravenously exposed to various concentrations of O-ethyl S-(2-diisopropylaminoethyl) methylphosphonothioate (VX) stereoisomers. The amount of O-ethyl methylphosphonofluoridate (VX-G) present in these biological samples was quantified using chemical ionization mass spectrometry with isotope dilution.
