||Dimethyl sulfate (DMS) was administered to animals by inhalation in single, repeated and chronic doses. DMS may induce acute (lethal or nonlethal) or chronic poisoning; it shows marked irritating action and penetrates the skin. It is also embryotopic, mutagenic and blastomagenic. The most sensitive indicator of DMS toxicity is its cytogenic effect, as at the lowest concentration tried (0.3µg/m3) a cytogenic effect was manifested in the frequency of chromosome abberation in bone marrow cells. The recommended MAC for DMS in workplace air is 0.1mg/m3 with note "dangerous: skin penetration" hazard class 1, state aggregation-vapour.
