Title Toxicological characteristics of pesticide mixtures based on polycarbazine
Original title Toksikologičeskaja harakteristika kombinirovannyh pesticidov na osnove polikarbacina [in Russian]
Bibliographic information Aug. 1987, No.8, p.51-52. Illus. 7 ref.
Abstract Animal experiments to study the toxicological characteristics of pesticides based on polycarbazine (arceride, boricide, polydazol) showed their low toxicity. Their effects were cumulative to varying degrees. Acute intoxication affected mainly the nervous system. The results of this experimental study permitted the recommendation of Tentative Safe Exposure Levels of 0.5, 0.1, and 5mg/m3 for polycarbazine, arceride and boricide, respectively, and a MAC of 0.1mg/m3 for polydazol in workplace air.
