Abstract

A method is described for the simultaneous quantitation of the lower volatile alcohols in stool specimens and rat blood. The addition of potassium carbonate to the assay mixture markedly increased the sensitivity in the detection of these compounds. The method is shown to be simple and reproducible and is suitable for following the metabbolism of ethanol in human stool specimens.
