Florfenicol amine is the 4-methylsulphonophenylpropylamine parent compound formed by hydrolysing the dichloroacetamide of florfenicol. Florfenicol amine is a metabolite and degradation product of florfenicol. Florfenicol amine has no antibiotic activity but is an important standard for monitoring animal and environmental residues of florfenicol.
