Hydrolysis of 2-chloroethyl palmitate and 2-chloroethyl linoleate was studied in artificial gastric juice, artificial pancreatic juice, pig liver homogenates and pig intestine homogenates. Hydrolytic activity was followed by gas-liquid chromatography. Substantial hydrolysis was observed in all preparations except the artificial gastric juice. Hydrolysis constants ranged from <0.001 min−1 in the gastric juice to 0.064 min−1 for the linoleate ester in the pancreatic juice.
