Abstract:

This phase of the research entailed I. Repeating and completing work on water solubilities of major JP-4 jet fuel alkylbenzenes at five different temperatures and four different salinities. Work is nearly complete for determining the maximal water solubilities of JP-4 derived alkylbenzenes. II. LC50 and MATC for toluence in fathead minnow embryos, 1-day posthatch protolarvae and 30-day old fish has been published. III. Metabolism of benzene and toluene, aminopyrine demethylase and aniline hydroxylase activities by liver subcellular fractions from control and induced rats activities. IV. Toluene metabolism and activities of aminopyrine demethylase and aniline hydroxylase in the lier of Bluegill sunfish Lepomis ssp. V. Bioaccumulation and tissue distribution of 14C benzene and 14C toluene by fathead minnows in a closed static bioassay system. VI. The prehatching development of the fathead minnow. VII. Effects of toluene on the prehatching development of the fathead minnow.
