Abstract

Dichloroacetaldehyde, a presumed metabolite of the in­ secticides dichlorvos and tridilorphon, is mutagenic in the Salmonella/microsome test. Its mutagenic potency is higher than that of the established mutagen dichlorvos. It is pos sible that the bacterical mutagenicity test only or mainly detects the effect of methylation by dichlorvos.
