||Phenol in urine and benzene and toluene in blood were determined (33 workers) as indexes of benzene exposure where the benzene may be an undeclared constituent of solvents. Benzene and toluene were found in all samples; the amount of toluene was 4 times that of benzene. An increase in urinary phenol concentration might be a sufficiently sensitive parameter to assess benzene exposure when other data concerning the presence of benzene are not available.
