Abstract
Worker exposures to S,S-tributyl-ester-phosphorotrithioic-acid (DEF), and tributyl-ester-phosphorotrithious-acid (FOLEX) were determined in cotton fields and gins at college station, Texas on August 30 to 31, 1978. The survey was part of a NIOSH study of the health effects of occupational pesticide exposure. The author concludes that a study of worker exposure to DEF and FOLEX is feasible because detectable concentrations of these pesticides were present in the cotton fields and gins.
