||S. Hirzel Verlag, P.O. Box 10 10 61, 70009 Stuttgart, Germany, 1994. 124p. Bibl.ref. Price: DEM 48.00.
||Animal experiments indicate that the acute toxicity of adipic acid (Report 68), terephthalic acid (Report 69) and acetic anhydride (Report 70) is low. Animal studies on adipic acid have failed to give any indication of carcinogenic, mutagenic or teratogenic effects; there is one report of two workers developing bronchial asthma following contact with spiramycin adipate. In contact with skin or eyes, acetic anhydride can cause irritation, severe burns and skin sensitization; exposure at the workplace has been observed to cause lacrimation, conjunctivitis and corneal corrosion.
