The purpose of the report is to summarize available information concerning possible health effects associated with exposure to chloroprene. Emphasis has been placed on reviewing the available information useful for determining whether or not chloroprene affects human health at air concentrations which might be encountered by the general public under ambient conditions. The summary addresses the acute and chronic toxicity, reproductive effects, mutagenicity, and carcinogenicity of chloroprene. Also discussed is background information on air quality aspects of chloroprene, including sources, distribution, and fate.
