IRIS Toxicological Review of 1,1,2,2-Tetrachloroethane (2010 Final Report)
The Toxicological Review of 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane provides scientific support and rationale for the hazard and dose-response assessment pertaining to subchronic and chronic exposure to 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane. 1,1,2,2 Tetrachloroethane (1,1,2,2TCE; CASRN 79-34-5) is a synthetic halogenated hydrocarbon that is a colorless, nonflammable liquid at room temperature. The major use for 1,1,2,2 tetrachloroethane was in the production of trichloroethylene, tetrachloroethylene, and 1,2-dichloroethylene. This assessment contains the derivation of both a subchronic and chronic reference dose and an oral cancer slope factor. EPA is also putting forth for external review the statement that the human carcinogenic potential of 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane is “likely to be carcinogenic to humans”.
