Effects of Chlorinated Paraffins on Some Drug-Metabolizing Enzymes in Rat Liver and in the Ames Test
Chlorinated paraffins (CP) consist of alkanes of the C10-C30 range with different degrees of chlorination. Commercially produced CP therefore consist of a variety of isomers with different chain lengths and chlorine content and a range or mean is given for each batch produced.
