Title Occupational exposure to 1,3-dichloropropene (Telone II) in Hawaiian pineapple culture
Bibliographic information Sep.-Oct. 1987, Vol.42, No.5, p.286-291. Illus. 7 ref.
Abstract 1,3-dichloropropene (DCP), the primary constituent of Telone II, is a subsoil fumigant that has supplanted 1,2-dibromo-3-chloropropane (DBCP) and ethylene dibromide (EDB) as primary fumigant in Hawaiian pineapple culture. To determine the potential for adverse health effects, an environmental survey was done to assess worker exposures. Exposures were predominantly below 1ppm, which is the no-effect level determined with experimental animals, and the Threshold Limit Value (TLV) recommended by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH).
