Abstract

The ascorbic acid concentration in the posterior and anterior chambers of the rhesus monkey (Macaca mulatta) eye was determined, and found to be significantly higher in the posterior chamber. Monkeys anesthetized with pentobarbital sodium had a higher posterior chamber ascorbic acid concentration than monkeys sedated with phencyclidine. The ascorbic acid diffusion coefficient, calculated from the posterior and anterior chamber data, was 0.0012 min.-1 for monkeys given phencyclidine and 0.0010 min.-1 for pentobarbital-anesthetized monkeys.
