Tetrachloroethene by Peter Watts( Book )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tetrachloroethene is used mainly in the dry cleaning of textiles, as a chemical intermediate and in metal degreasing. This report evaluates the available scientific literature on the health and environmental effects of tetrachloroethene based on selected national and regional evaluations. Of key interest is the relevance of several types of tumors included by tetrachloroethene in rats and mice. The report goes on to establish the criteria for setting tolerable intakes and concentrations taking into consideration the potential carcinogenicity, neurotoxicity, kidney, liver and reproductive/developmental toxicity and cancer. Environmental effects are assessed for terrestrial and aquatic organisms, sediment-dwelling organisms and micro-organisms in sewerage treatment processes. In addition the risks of harm to plants from air emissions of tetrachloroethene are discussed. Uncertainties in the risk assessment are set out for both human health and the environment.--Publisher's decription
Tin and inorganic tin compounds by Paul Howe( Book )

This report examines the health effects of exposure to tin and inorganic tin compounds. Results of studies show that inorganic tin compounds have low toxicity in both aquatic and terrestrial organisms and concentrations showing toxicity to organisms are generally several orders of magnitude higher than those found in the environment.--Publisher's description
