||Chemical safety information sheet. Exposure limit (USSR): MAC (nickel carbonyl) = 0.0005mg/m3; MAC (nickel salts as hydroaerosols) = 0.005mg Ni/m3; MAC (nickel metal, oxides, sulphides, ore concentrates) = 0.05mg Ni/m3. Toxicity: the water-soluble salts and nickel carbonyl are the most toxic (irritation of mucous membranes and skin, dermatitis, skin absorption; pulmonary oedema from exposure to nickel carbonyl); dust from nickel ore production is carcinogenic in man.
