Metabolite Identification
Common NameRoxarsone
DescriptionRoxarsone, also known as 3-nitro or NSC-2101, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as nitrophenols. Nitrophenols are compounds containing a nitrophenol moiety, which consists of a benzene ring bearing both a hydroxyl group and a nitro group on two different ring carbon atoms. Roxarsone is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Roxarsone is a potentially toxic compound. The final phase consists of peripheral sensory neuropathy of the hands and feet. The drug is also approved in the United States for use in pigs. Roxarsone is a fda approved additive for chicken, turkey and swine feeds.
