Abstract 176 industrial organic chemicals are examined and collated in terms of 21 major groupings and 38 structural subgroupings. Information is given on: synthesis, trace impurities, production volumes, use, occurrence, chemical and biological reactivity, estimated populations at risk, exposure limits in various countries, carcinogenicity and mutagenicity test systems. Combination effects in chemical carcinogenesis, epidemiology, and risk assessment are discussed.
