||Environmental Health Centre, Health Canada, Room 104, Tunney's Pasture, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0L2, Canada, 1994. v, 30p. Bibl.ref.
||This report reviews environmental and toxicological data on aniline. Acute exposure to high concentrations of aniline produces a number of adverse effects including arrhythmia, convulsions, coma and death primarily from the development of hypoxia caused by methaemoglobinaemia. Haematotoxicity, renal toxicity and hepatotoxicity have also been observed. Epidemiological investigations are limited to studies in which workers were exposed to mixtures of aniline and other compounds. Aniline has been classified as possibly carcinogenic in humans.
