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 vitro test systems -- Effects on humans -- Effects on other organisms in the laboratory and field -- Effects evaluation -- Previous evaluations by international bodies. 1, 2, 3-trichloropropane is a chlorinated alkane, which is used as an intermediate in the synthesis of other chemicals (e.g. pesticides) and as a crosslinking agent in the production of polymers. It is known that 1, 2, 3-trichloropropane is carcinogenic in rats and mice, inducing a wide range of tumors in both sexes. In this book, risk assessment of 1, 2, 3-trichloropropane, including exposure, effects on animals, humans and the environment, is described concisely.--Publisher's description.
