Bibliographic information June 1973, No.6, p.16-22. 3 ref.
Abstract Results of animal experiments to determine the toxic effects (LD50, chronic effects on the nervous system, liver, cerebral and renal tissue, blood sugar rate, phagocytosis of neutrophiles and pathological morphology of the internal organs and the upper airways) of tetrahydrobenzaldehyde (THBA), cyclohexenecarboxylic acid tetrahydrobenzylic ester (CATE) and 3-cyclohexene-1,1-dimethanol (CHDM), used in the synthesis of aliphatic cyclic epoxy resins. On the basic of these results, the following maximum allowable concentrations have been established: 0.3mg/m3 for THBA, 1mg/m3 for CATE and 2mg/m3 for CHDM.
