The document represents a brief, quantitatively oriented scientific summary of health effects data. It was developed by the Environmental Criteria and Assessment Office to assist the Office of Emergency and Remedial Response in establishing chemical-specific health-related goals of remedial actions. If applicable, chemical-specific subchronic and chronic toxicity interim acceptable intakes are determined for systemic toxicants, or q(sub 1)* values are determined for carcinogens for both oral and inhalation routes. The glycol ethers for which data were adequate for quantitative assessment include: 2-ethoxyethanol (both inhalation and oral); 2-methoxyethanol (inhalation); diethylene glycol monobutyl ether (oral); ethylene glycol monobutyl ether (inhalation); propylene glycol monomethyl ether (inhalation and oral); and propylene glycol monoethyl ether (oral).
