A new metabolite, 2,6-dimethylphenol obtained by O-dealkylation of mexiletine by rabbit liver was identified. A g.c.-f.i.d. method was developed for its analysis in hepatic homogenates and some of the characteristics of the metabolic reaction were studied. Formation of 2,6-dimethylphenol is...

In the present work, a simple, selective, and sensitive method has been proposed for the determination of four phenols (catechol, resorcinol, 2,6-dimethylphenol, and 2,4,6-trinitrophenol) in water samples. The method is based on poly-(methacrylic acid-co-ethylene glycol dimethacrylate) monolith microextraction (PMME) and...

Alkylphenols and fuel oxygenates are important environmental pollutants produced by the petrochemical industry. A batch biodegradability test was conducted with selected ortho-substituted alkylphenols (2-cresol, 2,6-dimethylphenol and 2-ethylphenol), fuel oxygenates (methyl tert-butyl ether, ethyl tert-butyl ether and tert-amylmethyl ether) and tert-butyl...
