This report presents a scheme for evaluating the relative hazard to humans resulting from air emissions of synthetic organic chemicals. Data on production, fraction lost during production, volatility, and toxicity have been compiled for 637 organic chemicals. Numerical scores were then assigned based on these data. Four appendices were published with this report. The appendices are dossiers containing chemistry, production, and toxicity data for the 637 synthetic organic chemicals.
