Title Hazards of organotin compounds used as fungicides in industry
Original title Riziko organických sloučenin cínu použivaných jako fungicidní prostředky při některých aplikacích v průmyslu [in Czech]
Bibliographic information Oct. 1973, Vol.25, No.9, p.391-394. 6 ref.
Abstract Describes a case of nasal mucosa irritation and damage in a woman spraying latex paint containing trialkyl tin compounds (bis(tri-n-butyltin) oxide). The concentrations measured were below 0.05mg/m3 air, but the conditions under which the measurements were carried out were atypical. In view of the development of organotin paints, a maximum allowable concentration must be set for Czechoslovakia (the East German value is 0.1mg/m3); it is also important to lay down conditions governing the use of these substances and to develop appropriate methods for their determination.
