Recently, a pyrethroid profluthrin [(2,3,5,6-tetrafluoro-4-methylphenyl)methyl 2,2-dimethyl-3-(prop-1-enyl)cyclopropane-1-carboxylate] is widely used as mothproof repellents in indoors. The urinary excretion kinetics of its metabolites was examined in rats to search for urinary metabolites suitable as biomarkers of profluthrin exposure in the general population.
