Title Toxicity and mode of action of practically important fluorocarbons - Prophylaxis and therapy of intoxications
Original title Toxizität und Wirkungsweise praktisch bedeutsamer Fluorcarbone - Prophylaxe und Therapie von Intoxikationen [in German]
Bibliographic information 1984, Vol.30, No.4, p.204-208. 34 ref.
Abstract Review of the toxicity and effects on the body of industrially important fluorinated hydrocarbons: monofluorocarbons (inhibitors of the enzyme aconitase); benzenoid and saturated aliphatic poly- and perfluorocarbons (anaesthetic, narcotic and convulsant effects); unsaturated poly- and perfluorocarbons (capillary wall poisons). The most important toxicological data on representative compounds of these 3 groups are tabulated and their pathological mechanisms are described. A table of current exposure limits in the German Democratic Republic is included.
