Acrolein by R Gomes( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book evaluates the risk to human health and the environment posed by exposures to Acrolein. Acrolein is a clear colourless liquid with an intensively acrid odour. 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 labora-tory animals adverse health effects associated with expo-sure to acrolein are mo
Ethylene oxide by R Liteplo( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ethylene oxide is a colorless, highly reactive gas at room temperature and pressure. Almost all of ethylene oxide produced is used in the manufacture of ethylene glycol, but some amount is used as a sterilant for health care materials and other heat-sensitive products. Ethylene oxide is an alkylating agent and forms protein and DNA adducts. Based on studies in animals, cancer is considered the critical end-point for effects of ethylene oxide on human health for long-term exposure of the general population.--Publisher's description
N-nitrosodimethylamine : first draft by R Liteplo( Book )

9 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) is the simplest dialkylnitrosamine with a molecular formula of C2H6N2O and a relative molecular mass of 74.08. It is no longer used industrially or commercially in Canada or the USA but continues to be released as a by-product and contaminant from various industries and from municipal wastewater treatment plants. In this volume are assessed the risks to human health and the environment of this chemical. Based upon laboratory studies in which tumours have been induced in all species examined at relatively low doses NDMA is clearly carcinogenic. It is concluded that

Ethylene glycol : human health aspects by R Gomes( Book )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book evaluates the risk to human health of ethylene glycol. Ethylene glycol is a colorless, odorless, sweet-tasting, relatively non-volatile liquid. It is used in the manufacture of poly-ethylene terephthalate, in natural gas processing, and as an antifreeze agent. Available data from acute poisoning cases (humans) and repeated-dose toxicity studies (experimental animals) indicate that the kidney is a critical organ for the toxicity of ethylene glycol in both humans and experimental animals"--WHO summary
1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane by K Hughes( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

N,N-dimethylformamide by G Long( Book )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carbon disulfide by R Newhook( Book )

9 editions published between 1991 and 2003 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carbon disulfide is a clear colourless or faintly yellow mobile liquid at room temperature but it is highly volatile and highly flammable. It is produced artificially but it is also released into the environment from a wide variety of natural sources like soil bacteria and plants. Most of carbon disulfide produced artificially is used in the production of viscose fibre and cellophane film but also used in other chemical and tire production. In this book every aspect of risk assessment for carbon disulfide including exposure effects on humans and the environment is described concisely
3,3'-Dichlorobenzidine by R Gomes( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Methyl methacrylate by W Dormer( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Acrylonitrile by G Long( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book evaluates the risk to human health and the environment posed by exposures to acrylonitrile. Acrylonitrile is a volatile flammable water-soluble liquid at room temperature. The large majority of acrylonitrile in Canada is used as a feedstock or chemical aid in the production of nitrilebutadiene rubber and in acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene and styrene-acrylonitrile polymers. Available data from studies in animals indicate that acrylonitrile is a skin respiratory and severe eye irritant. Increases in cancer incidence have not been consistently observed in available human epidemiological
