Florfenicol is a monofluoro derivative of thiamphenicol, a white or off-white crystalline powder, odorless. Florfenicol is slightly soluble in water and chloroform, slightly soluble in glacial acetic acid, and soluble in methanol and ethanol. It is a new broad-spectrum antibacterial drug for veterinary medicine developed successfully in the late 1980s.
Florfenicol is a special antibacterial drug for animals, used for bacterial diseases of pigs, chickens, and fish caused by sensitive bacteria, especially for respiratory infections and intestinal infections.
