Abstract Literature survey to serve as a basis for determination of exposure limits: metabolism, toxicity, organ effects, other effects. Propylene glycol has low toxicity; high doses have been given to animals in long-term experiments without negative effects. No studies that can be used to determine a hygienic standard are available. There is no evidence that inhalation of air saturated with propylene glycol has any deleterious effects.
