2-butenal by J Kielhorn( )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

2-Butenal (also known as crotonaldehyde) is an ab-unsaturated aldehyde and consequently a very reactive compound. It is a chemical intermediate used chiefly in the manufacture of sorbates, solvents, and, to a lesser extent, pharmaceutical products and aroma chemicals. This publication studies the pharmacokinetics, environmental exposure, chemical toxicology and carcinogenicity of 2-butenal. However, to enable an understanding and evaluation of this aldehyde in the context of environmental health, other aldehydes, such as formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, and acrolein, are mentioned for comparison.--Publisher's description
The WHO recommended classification of pesticides by hazard and guidelines to classification 2009 by International Program on Chemical Safety( )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The WHO Recommended Classification of Pesticides by Hazard was approved by the 28th World Health Assembly in 1975 and has since gained wide acceptance. When it was published in the WHO Chronicle, 29, 397-401 (1975), an annex, which was not part of the Classification, illustrated its use by listing examples of classification of some pesticidal active ingredients and their formulations. Later suggestions were made by Member States and pesticide registration authorities that further guidance should be given on the classification of individual pesticides. Guidelines were first issued in 1978, and have since been revised and reissued every few years. Up until the present revision the original guidelines approved by the World Health Assembly in 1975 have been followed without amendment. In December, 2002 the United Nations Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods and on the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (UNCETDG/GHS) approved a document called 'The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals' with the intent to provide a globally-harmonized system¹ (GHS) to address classification of chemicals, labels, and safety data sheets. The GHS (with subsequent revisions) is now being widely used for the classification and labeling of chemicals worldwide. For this revision of the Classification the WHO Hazard Classes have been aligned in an appropriate way with the GHS Acute Toxicity Hazard Categories for acute oral or dermal toxicity as the starting point for allocating pesticides to a WHO Hazard Class (with adjustments for individual pesticides where required). It is anticipated that few of the more toxic pesticides will change WHO Hazard Class as a result of this change. As has always been the case, the classification of some pesticides has been adjusted to take account of severe hazards to health other than acute toxicity (as described in Part II). The GHS Acute Toxicity Hazard Category for each pesticide is now presented alongside the existing information"--Page 1

Acrolein by R Gomes( Book )

21 editions published between 1991 and 2002 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book evaluates the risk to human health and the environment posed by exposures to Acrolein. Acrolein is a clear, colorless liquid with an intensively acrid odor. It is released to the atmosphere as a product of fermentation and ripening processes. It is also emitted by forest fires as a product of incomplete combustion. In Canada, acrolein is used mainly as an aquatic herbicide in irrigation canals and as a microbiocide in produced water during oil exploration. Based upon studies conducted primarily in laboratory animals, adverse health effects associated with exposure to acrolein are mostly confined to the tissue of first contact (i.e., the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts after inhalation and ingestion, respectively) and are concentration related.--Publisher's description
Dermal exposure by International Program on Chemical Safety( )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Environmental Health Criteria (EHC) series publication addresses dermal exposure to chemicals. It describes sources and pathways of dermal exposure, models and tools to estimate dermal exposure and methods for dermal exposure prevention and reduction Furthermore, the EHC introduces skin diseases associated with dermal exposure. This EHC aims to provide information to national regulatory authorities to assist in conducting health risk assessments and managing the risk involving dermal exposure to chemicals."--Publisher's description

Formaldehyde by International Program on Chemical Safety( Book )

18 editions published between 1989 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book evaluates the risks to human health and the environment of formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is a colourless highly reactive gas with a pungent irritating odour at room temperature. Sensory irritation of the eyes and respiratory tract by formaldehyde has been observed consistently in clinical studies and epidemiological surveys in occupational and residential environments. Formaldehyde is produced commercially and used predominantly in the synthesis of resins but the largest direct human source of formaldehyde in the environment is the combustion of organic materials.
