A table with the fitted parameters and the resulting DT50 and DT90 values generated with different software packages. Taken directly from FOCUS (2006). The results from fitting the data with the Topfit software was removed, as the initial concentration of the parent compound was fixed to a value of 100 in this fit.
A data frame containing the following variables.
a factor giving the name of the software package
The fitted initial concentration of the parent compound
The fitted first-order degradation rate constant
The resulting half-life of the parent compound
The resulting DT90 of the parent compound
The FOCUS dataset that was used
The comparison of these results with the results obtained with the
current version of
kinfit can be found in the package vignette.
