Title Toxicity of trifluorostyrene
Original title O toksičnosti triftorstirola [in Russian]
Bibliographic information May 1976, No.5, p.55-56. 6 ref.
Abstract Studies in mice and rats to determine the acute, subacute and chronic toxicity of trifluorostyrene (TFS; C6H5CF-CF2). Acute exposure to TFS produced central nervous system (CNS) disturbances with symptoms of general depression of functions. Threshold for CNS effects was 0.03mg/l. TFS has cumulative properties (cumulation coefficient: 0.69). Chronic exposure to 0.02mg/l reduced oxygen uptake, increased urinary hippuric acid levels, etc.). Given the moderate toxicity of TFS a TLV of 5mg/m3 is proposed.
