||Cyclohexanol is mostly used as a chemical intermediate in the synthesis of adipic acid. Information on the toxicity of cyclohexanol in humans is fragmentary. Acute exposures are characterized by irritation of the skin, eyes and respiratory tract. Among workers of a caprolactam-producing plant exposed by inhalation for a long period, nonspecific disorders of the autonomic nervous system were observed. The proposed maximum admissible concentration for cyclohexanol is based on the toxic effects on the male reproduction system in experimental animals, which is considered to be the critical effect. In the present document, the proposed threshold limit value (time-weighted average) for cyclohexanol is set at 10mg/m3.
