Why is this important?
A well known carcinogen in animals
- Examples for cattle -
Exposure routes for humans
PTA production, distribution and hydrolysis in soil and water
High variation in PTA content between bracken populations
Can degradation in soil be attributed to hydrolysis in solution phase?
