    A method has been developed for the simultaneous analysis of the isomeric N-acetyl-S- (dichlorophenyl) cysteines (also known as dichlorophenylmercapturic acids, DCPMAs) in urine.

    This procedure allows the determination of 2,3-and 3,4-DCPMAs at the concentrations expected in the urine samples of employees occupationally exposed to 1,2-dichlorobenzene (1,2-DCB).

    The results of a 1,2-DCB exposure study under standardized conditions show a first-order kinetic for the excretion of DCPMAs, as well as acceptable linear correlations between the urinary concentrations of DCPMAs and the amount of inhaled 1,2-DCB.

    It therefore seems it would be possible to derive a biological tolerance value for 1,2-DCB based on isomeric DCPMAs as analytical parameters.
