The introduction in recent years of anticholinesterase (antiChE) compounds as insecticides has led to problems arising from their toxicity for man. The antiChE compound most widely used at the present time is parathion (p-nitrophenyl diethyl thionophosphate).1 This anticholinesterase was introduced by the Germans and is now manufactured in this country, chiefly for use as an insecticide in agriculture, under such names as "Geigy Parathion," "Lethalaire G-54 Parathion Aerosol," "Chipman Parathion," "P.
