||Exposure to methyl tert-butyl ether and tert-amyl methyl ether from gasoline during tank lorry loading and its measurement using biological monitoring
||Sep. 1998, Vol.71, No.6, p.391-396. Illus. 15 ref.
||The exposure of Finnish tank lorry drivers to methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) and tert-amyl methyl ether (TAME) during loading of gasoline was studied using biological and breathing-zone sampling. Breathing-zone measurements showed low levels of exposure to the two oxygenates, the concentrations being well below current hygienic standards for MTBE. The linear correlations obtained for MTBE suggest that MTBE in blood or urine can be adopted as a valid biological exposure index. Topics: air sampling; methyl t-butyl ether; motor fuel; tert-amyl methyl ether; determination in blood; determination in urine; dose-response relationship; drivers; exposure evaluation; exposure tests; personal sampling; tank trucks.
