The purpose of this Toxicological Review is to provide scientific support and rationale for the hazard and dose-response assessment in IRIS pertaining to chronic exposure to propionaldehyde. It is not intended to be a comprehensive treatise on the chemical or toxicological nature of propionaldehyde. This document presents background information and justification for the Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) Summary of the hazard and dose-response assessment of propionaldehyde. IRIS Summaries may include oral reference dose (RfD) and inhalation reference concentration (RfC) values for chronic and other exposure durations, and a carcinogenicity assessment.

Propionaldehyde is an aldehyde also known as propanal, propionic aldehyde, methylacetaldehyde, propyl aldehyde, propaldehyde, and propylic aldehyde. Propionaldehyde is a colorless liquid with a suffocating, fruity odor. It is used in the manufacturing of propionic acid and polyvinyl and other plastics, in the synthesis of rubber chemicals, and as a disinfectant and preservative.
