Additional information

In an available metabolism study, four Chinchilla rabbits received applications of 2 mmol/kg bw 1,6-hexanediol by gavage (Gessner, 1960). As results, 4 - 9% of the administered dose was excreted as a glucuronide in the urine. Another urinary metabolite of the test substance was adipic acid, the product resulting from oxidation of both hydroxyl groups.
