In order to assess the health and environmental effects of a chemical, you need to determine the exposure of the chemical to sensitive organisms as well as to assess the likely effects. The chemicals in Volume V of the Handbook of Environmental Fate and Exposure Data for Organic Chemicals set are mostly solvents and cover many of the natural products and hydrochlorofluorocarbons and hydrofluorocarbons being considered as replacements for harmful chlorinated solvents and chlorofluorocarbons. The chemicals are listed in alphabetical order by their most easily recognized names. A cumulative index allows you to look up each chemical by chemical name synonym, Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) number, and chemical formula. Like all of the volumes in the series, this new volume details how individual chemicals are released, transported, and degraded in the environment, as well as how they are exposed to humans and environmental organisms. Features Provides useful information for hazardous waste cleanup Helps you to make exposure assessments Provides workplace exposure and ambient monitoring data as well as detection in foods Includes information on environmental persistence and transport Includes highly reliable data prepared by a well-known firm in environmental fateThe time weighted avg concns of the compound found in the general area of workers in the screen printing plant were as follows (avg of 6-10 samples each): 9 ppm in printing press area, 4.8 ppm in automatic dryer area, 12.5 ppm in manualanbsp;...
