Abstract
The properties, sources, production processes, and uses of benzidine are reviewed in the report. Benzidine is a proven human carcinogen, and its widespread use as a dye intermediate has led to the high recurrence of bladder cancer in that industry. OSHA has imposed stringent workplace standards. Further information is needed on benzidine production and use to better define necessary regulatory action.
