||n-Propyl bromide - Hazard assessment document
||HSE Books, P.O. Box 1999, Sudbury, Suffolk CO10 2WA, United Kingdom, 2002. iv, 40p. 38 ref. Price: GBP 7.50.
||There are no data on the effects of human exposures to n-propyl bromide. Available data are from experiments on rats. Target organs are the lungs (inflammation) and the central nervous system (depression). N-propyl bromide is a skin irritant. The most severe neurotoxic effects following prolonged inhalation appear in the form of histopathological lesions of the brain and peripheral nerves, a paralysis of the lower extremities and a decrease in nerve conduction speed. Spermatogenic inhibition has also been demonstrated.
