Abstract This report reviews environmental and toxicological data on the three isomers of trichlorobenzene (1,2,4-, 1,2,3- and 1,3,5-trichlorobenzene). No data on the effects of human exposure to trichlorobenzenes have been identified; results of animal studies are limited. All three isomers have been classified as having inadequate data for assessing carcinogenicity in man.
