Abstract
This terminal progress report reviews and summarizes the earlier work. The oxygen analogs of the organophosphothionate pesticides are readily formed in the field, are relatively persistent, and are often the principal toxic constituents of the weathered residues. The conversion of ethyl-parathion to (56382) paraoxon (311455) is related to air pollution levels, and for some pesticides the foliar decay processes are quite variable. The dermal route of exposure and penetration through clothing is more important than inhalation of residues. Studies in an environmental chamber are used to determine climatic effects, and protocols for worker reentry into sprayed areas are being developed. (Grant No. R01-OH-00368)
