||Corporate memo describing a case of eye irritation in an office worker due to dicyclopentadiene alcohol and/or benzoyl chloride. Several submissions have noted problems with occupational exposure to dicyclopentadiene or its alcohol (8EHQ-1177-0017P; 8EHQ-0278-0077P; 8EHQ-0378-0097). An office worker in a chemical plant reported moderate eye irritation following possible exposure to benzoyl chloride and/or dicyclopentadiene. Either compound is capable of producing this type of irritation. The metabolites of benzoyl chloride are benzoyl glycine and hippuric acid. Likely metabolites of dicyclopentadiene are glucuronides of ethereal sulfates. Any of these metabolites are easily measured in urine samples.
