Title Glycidyloxy compounds used in epoxy resins - A toxicology review
Bibliographic information Apr. 1992, Vol.15, No.2, Part 2, p.S1-S77. Approx. 300 ref.
Abstract Although extensive toxicological data are available on glycidyloxy compounds, use and understanding of the data have been hampered by two major problems: (1) proper identification and complexity of the epoxy systems in question; and (2) absence of meaningful classification of epoxy materials. This paper provides a classification scheme with CAS numbers and reviews published and proprietary information on the mammalian toxicology of the most common glycidyloxy derivatives used in epoxy resins. Although the toxicity of many glycidyloxy compounds can be characterised as low, the diversity of compounds found within this group precludes broad generalisations for the class.
