English Abstract
The identity was elucidated of a compound detected in an application site and not identical to any compound known to be used as an anabolic agent or veterinary drug. The compound was identified as Algestone acetophenide (dihydroxyprogesterone acetophenide (DHPA)). For complete identification information obtained with a number of molecular spectroscopic techniques was combined. The identity was confirmed by comparing the spectroscopic data obtained with those of the reference compound. For meat inspection purposes diagnostic ions for the compound as HFB-derivative were established. Within the Netherlands the standard was made available to the appropriate government laboratories for regulatory purposes. The extent of the use of DHPA remains to be established.
