Abstract

Abstract Plants were collected from an area high in atmospheric fluoride. Animals grazing on this area showed severe fluoride injury. Analyses of plants indicated accumulation of fluorocitrate and fluoroacetate at concentrations of 896μg and 179 μg/g leaf dry wt. The presence of these compounds was established by chromatographic techniques, inhibition of aconitase and i.r. spectral analysis.
