Title Toxicology of β-dihydroheptachlor (Dilor) and regulation of safe exposure levels
Original title Toksikologija β-digidrogeptahlora (dilora) i reglamentacija bezopasnyh urovnej ego vozdejstvija [in Russian]
Bibliographic information Feb. 1987, No.2, p.93-95. 12 ref.
Abstract Animal experiments to study the toxic properties of Dilor were carried out. Like other organochlorine pesticides, Dilor affects the nervous system, upsets the protein synthesis, carbohydrate metabolism and detoxification functions of the liver, and thus produces disorders of protein carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. Dilor is a chemical of low toxicity with moderate cumulative effects. The results obtained were used as a basis for a MAC for Dilor in workplace air: for industrial premises 0,2mg/m3, in agriculture 0,5mg/m3.
