Abstract This monograph presents the views and expert opinions of an IARC working group which met in Lyon, France, 15-22 February 2000. 16 industrial organic chemicals were reviewed: three were rated 2A (probably carcinogenic to humans), five were rated 2B (possibly carcinogenic to humans) and eight were classified 3 (not classifiable as to its carcinogenicity to humans). For each chemical, the following aspects are covered: exposure data; studies of cancer in humans; studies of cancer in experimental animals; other data relevant to an evaluation of carcinogenicity and its mechanisms; summary of reported data and evaluation.
