General description

Ethoxyacetic acid is biomarker of exposure to widely used industrial chemicals such as alkyl-substituted ethylene glycols and other aliphatic ethers.

Application

Ethoxyacetic acid is metabolite of glycol ether alkoxy acid and was used to evaluate its toxicity in embryonic stem cell test in mouse. It was used in zebrafish embryotoxicity test to study chemical toxicity after exposure of the complete vertebrate embryo during embryogenesis in ovo.

A sensitive and specific method for the determination in urine of alkoxyacetic acids, the metabolites of ethylene glycol monoalkyl ethers, was developed by combining the advantages of two previously described methods. The acids were determined gas chromatographically as their pentafluorobenzylesters.

In control subjects and workers exposed to glycol ethers and their acetates, we determined the urinary metabolites (three alkoxyacetic acids) by a simple and rapid method. Levels of urinary metabolites were significantly higher in the solvent workers than in the
