The report summarizes most of the existing information on 85Kr. Major subject areas covered are physical, chemical and radiological data, maximum permissible concentration in air (MPC)a and its rationale, source data, atmospheric concentrations and dose estimates near reprocessing facilities and worldwide, proposed control methods, uses in science, especially medicine, and industry, calculations of dose to various organs and their relationship to the (MPC)a, unexplained noble gas phenomena- and methods of sampling and analysis. The in vivo internal behavior of 85Kr is discussed in detail and preliminary desaturation curves obtained with rats are presented. The review includes 280 references. (Author)
