||Occupational and environmental exposure of automobile mechanics and nonautomotive workers to airborne manganese arising from the combustion of methylcyclopentadienyl manganese tricarbonyl (MMT)
||July 1995, Vol.56, No.7, p.713-716. Illus. 20 ref.
||Air sampling studies showed that the average workplace manganese concentration for a group of garage mechanics (0.45µgm-3) was 10 times higher than that of a nearby control group of nonautomotive workers (0.04µgm-3). Workplace concentrations of aluminium, iron and zinc were also higher for the mechanics. The nonautomotive workers had similar manganese concentrations at work and at home; both groups had significantly higher concentrations of the other three metals at the workplace than at home. Particle size investigation suggests that at least 90% of the manganese in garage air was from a source other than methylcyclopentadienyl manganese tricarbonyl.
