The potent PPAR[delta] agonist L165,041 contains an unsubstituted phenoxyacetic acid head group that can fit into the narrow binding pocket.
All the women had detectable levels in their urine of the metabolites phenoxyacetic acid (PhAA) and 2-butoxyacetic acid (BAA, a by-product of two restricted glycol ethers used in hair dyes and spray paints and cleaners).
Firstly, following the reported procedure[15], these phenols reacted with methyl chloroacetate under microwave irradiation and phase-transfer catalysis conditions to synthesize p-substituted phenoxyacetates that was then hydrolyzed to get corresponding phenoxyacetic acid compounds (a1-a5).
Detection frequencies ranged from 91% (for EEAA) to 100% (for phenoxyacetic acid; PhAA).
Firstly, under microwave irradiation and phase-transfer catalysis conditions, these phenols reacted with methyl chloroacetate to synthesize substituted phenoxyacetates that were then hydrolyzed to get the corresponding phenoxyacetic acid compounds (a1-a5) according to the reported procedure.[12] Secondly, the key intermediates - 2- substituted phenoxymethyl benzimidazoles (b1-b5) was achieved by the reaction of the obtained compounds a1-a5 with o-phenylendiamine.
This method allowed for the simultaneous analysis of eight alkoxy-carboxylic acids, the main metabolites of the GEs in use in Europe at the time of urine collection (Table 1): methoxyacetic acid (MAA), methoxyethoxyacetic acid (MEAA), ethoxyacetic acid (EAA), ethoxyethoxyacetic acid (EEAA), 2-butoxyacetic acid (BAA), n-propoxyacetic acid (PAA), phenoxyacetic acid (PhAA), and 2-methoxypropionic acid (2-MPA).
