Título The assessment of major hazards: the lethal toxicity of chlorine - Part 1, Review of information on toxicity; Part 2, Model of toxicity to man
Información bibliográfica Dec. 1985, Vol.12, No.3, p.225-302. Illus. 230 ref.
Resumen In the first part, the literature is reviewed and evaluated and the results are used in the 2nd part to derive a revised estimate for the lethal toxicity of chlorine to man. Mortality is expressed in terms of a lethal toxic load which is a function of concentration and time. The concentrations lethal at the 50% level for a 10min exposure with a standard level of activity are estimated at 433, 173 and 364ppm for the regular, vulnerable and average population, respectively and those for a 30min exposure as 250, 100 and 210ppm respectively. A methodology for the application of the toxicity relationships in hazard assessments is given.
