Contents Notes
Identity and physical/chemical properties -- Analytical methods -- Sources of human and environmental exposure -- Environmental transport, distribution, and transformation -- Environmental levels and human exposure -- Comparative kinetics and metabolism in laboratory animals and humans -- Effects on laboratory mammals and in virto test systems -- Effects on humans -- Effects on other organisms in the laboratory and the field -- Effects evaluation -- Previous evaluations by IOMC bodies. This report examines the health effects of exposure to n-butyl, isobutyl, sec-butyl, and tert-butyl acetates The best studies available indicate that the acute toxicity of n-butyl acetate by inhalation, oral and dermal routes is low. Limited available data on the other isomers also indicate low toxicity.--Publisher's description.
