3-Tert-butyl-4-hydroxyanisole (3-BHA) was metabolized in the presence of horseradish peroxidase and hydrogen peroxide to 2-tert-butyl-p-benzoquinone (TBQ), 2,3-epoxy-5-tert-butyl-1,4-benzoquinone (TBQ-epoxide), and two known dimers. The formation of TBQ from 3-BHA required both horseradish peroxidase and hydrogen peroxide. When 2.5 mM 3-BHA was

After ip administration of 3-tert-butyl-4-hydroxyanisole (3-BHA) to rats, two previously undocumented metabolites 2-tert-butyl-5-methylthiohydroquinone (TBHQ-5-SMe) and 2-tert-butyl-6-methylthiohydroquinone (TBHQ-6-SMe) were identified in the urine by comparison with the authentic samples by GC/MS. In addition to these metabolites, 3-tert-butyl-4,5-dihydroxyanisole was also detected in
