Abstract Results of physiological, biochemical, haematological and pathomorphological studies in animals. Propyl and isopropyl alcohols can reach concentrations of 0.3 and 0.6mg/m3, respectively, over 24h without having noxious effects on conditioned reflexes, blood enzyme activity, blood nucleic acid levels, etc. The authors recommend that these levels be adopted as maximum allowable concentrations.
