||Toluene, a homolog of benzene, is primarily a central nervous system depressant in both humans and animals. Only inconclusive evidence for hematopoietic or myelotoxic dysfunction was found. Toluene is produced in the U.S. from both coal and petroleum; however, the majority of this production is petroleum derived. Exposure of the human population to toluene can ensue not only from production facility emissions, but also from gasoline evaporation or automobile and coke oven emissions. The average concentration of toluene in urban air is reportedly 0.01 to 0.05 ppm. Control technology has been developed which, if utilized, can provide protection to industrial workers.
