||Conclusions of this criteria document: a preliminary report on a human volunteer toxicokinetic study did not indicate any adverse effect in individuals exposed to 500 ppm for 2 hours; animal experiments indicate a low acute toxicity. In the USA an occupational exposure limit (8hr time-weighted average) of 1,000 ppm is recommended by the American Industrial hygiene Association.
