||Conclusions of this criteria document, translation of a report finalized in April 1989: no reliable data are available on the effects of nitrotoluenes in humans; there are some reports of poisoning among workers exposed to mixtures of nitrotoluenes and other substances. Animal studies indicate that nitrotoluenes have a low level of acute toxicity; main effects are methaemoglobin formation and central nervous system depression. No reliable data are available on mutagenic or carcinogenic effects.
