The ability of the animal organism to oxidize the phenol and other aromatic-rings occur in the body.
The most important of these substances are the aminoacids of the aromatic series, tyrosine, tryptophane and phenyl alanine. These substances in the organism is split and oxidize to phenol, cresol, indol and skatol.
These pure phenol derivatives which are formed as products of oxidation of these substances are quite poisonous, therefore, made to detoxify them in the liver by conjugation with sulfurous, sulfuric, hydrosulfurous, hydrosulfuric ions before they are excreted in the urine.
Author shall discuss on a suggestion with the limit of the literature which it is searched that the ability of detoxication is increased by catalitic action, and it is accelerated by means of metal chelate-compounds of cystine and polythionic acids.
