Acrolein by R Gomes ( Book )
8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 164 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
Carbon disulfide by R Newhook ( Book )
12 editions published between 1991 and 2003 in English and held by 163 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
N-nitrosodimethylamine : first draft by R Liteplo ( Book )
9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 161 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 oxide by R Liteplo ( Book )
10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 158 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
Acrylonitrile by G Long ( Book )
8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 156 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
Chloroform by Peter Watts ( Book )

N,N-dimethylformamide by G Long ( Book )

Ethylene glycol : human health aspects by R Gomes ( Book )
9 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

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ethylene Glycol by R Gomes ( )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book evaluates the risk to human health of ethylene glycol. Ethylene glycol is a colourless odourless 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 ani-mals) indicate that the kidney is a critical organ for the toxicity of ethylene glycol in both humans and experimental animals

Formaldehyde by R Liteplo ( Book )
3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 2 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.
