Resumen Isobenzan, also called Telodrin, is highly toxic and very persistent. Although no longer manufactured, it may still be present in the original waste disposal sites or dredgings from contaminated sediments. Data on exposed humans are limited to studies on workers in a factory in the Netherlands during the manufacture and formulation of isobenzan; several cases of intoxication and convulsions were reported. The available information on the hazards of isobenzan is incomplete, but is sufficient to indicate that no human or environmental exposure to this substance should be allowed. Detailed summaries in French and Spanish.
