||This review examines the "dangerous toxic load" (DTL) for hydrogen fluoride, in accordance with the principles of toxicological assessment described in the HSE publication "Assessment of the toxicity of major hazard substances" (see CIS 90-1985). Contents: physicochemical properties of hydrogen fluoride; toxicological data available in humans and animals; derivation of DTL. Tables show LC50 values for hydrogen fluoride in animals and observations from single exposure inhalation studies in animals. A DTL value of 2,400,000ppm2 min is suggested for use in risk analyses.
