||Study of the mutagenic effects of Mo and molybdenite, ammonium molybdate, molybdenum trioxide and butyl and ethyl xanthate as recorded in animals subjected to up to 4 times the TLV of Mo and molybdenite. Workers showed greater incidence of chromosomal aberrations after exposure to Mo and paramolybdate in concentrations either below the TLV or up to twice the TLV. It is recommended to adopt a TLV for ethyl xanthate in workplace air of 0.5mg/m3, and it is proposed to lower the TLV of Mo and molybdenite from 6mg/m3 to 0.6mg/m3, and that of butyl xanthate from 10mg/m3 to 1mg/m3.
