Title Bases for a MAC for vinyl phosphate in workplace air
Original title Materialy k obosnovaniju PDK vinilfosfata v vozduhe rabočej zony [in Russian]
Bibliographic information Jan. 1987, No.1, p.47-49. 7 ref.
Abstract Vinyl phosphate (VP) (insecticide) toxicity was tested on mice, rats and guinea pigs in acute and chronic experiments in order to determine an occupational exposure limit. The compound displayed low toxicity when administered orally, by inhalation or percutaneously. Lim(ac), Lim(ch) and Lim(sp) upon inhalation exposure were 94.88, 10.54 and 31.6mg/m3, respectively. LD50 for different species studied ranged from 1170.8 to 2480mg/kg. No sensitising effects were observed. The VP preparation's cumulative effects subsided with the lowering of the daily dose. A MAC of 1mg/m3 (vapour + aerosol) was proposed and approved (hazard class III).
