Title Toxic and sensitising properties of substances containing trichloromethylmethanol
Original title Toxische und sensibilisierende Eigenschaften von substituierten Aryl-trichlormethylcarbinolen [in German]
Bibliographic information July 1973, Vol.19, No.7, p.535-538. Illus. 17 ref.
Abstract A review of the specific biologically harmful properties linked to the structure of substances containing trichloromethylmethanol, followed by an account of cases of skin lesions noted during the manufacture of these substances. The evolution and clinical picture of these skin disorders correspond to those of contact eczema of allergic origin. Concentrations of 0.1% are considered sufficient to produce an epicutaneous sensitisation; concentrations of 10% are sufficient to produce skin lesions.
