Abstract The inhalation of betanaphthol, which is used in the cold dying of textiles and as a fungicide, leads to disorders of the urinary tract (cystitis and dysuria). Gastritis and chronic hepatitis as well as functional disorders of the nervous system were also found in numerous workers exposed to this substance. From the results of research with animals and observations made in industry, a maximum allowable atmospheric concentration of betanaphthol of 0.1mg/m3 is recommended.
