  1. Environmental and biological monitoring of exposure to mancozeb, ethylenethiourea, and dimethoate during industrial formulation.

    Article - En anglais

    The results of environmental (11 subjects) and biological (57 subjects) monitoring of exposure to mancozeb, ethylenethiourea (ETU), and dimethoate are reported for employees of a firm producing commercial formulations containing these active ingredients.

    Urinary excretion (GM (GSD)) of ETU (mug/g creatinine) and alkylphosphates [dimethylphosphate (DMP)+dimethylthiophosphate (DMTP)+dimethyldithiophosphate (DMDTP)) (nmol/g creatinine) was 65.3 (4.8) and 419.2 (2.1), respectively, for employees engaged in the formulation of a product containing 80% mancozeb (n=9), 36.6 (1.9) and 296.4 (2.4) for those formulating a product containing 35% mancozeb (n=9), 9.5 (6.1) and 1022.4 (3.0) for those engaged in plant maintenance and internal transport of materials (n=6), 10.3 (4.2) and 322.8 (3.3) for those engaged in packaging the mancozeb formulations (n=16), 4.4 (3.3) and 2545.4 (3.9) for those formulating a product containing 40% dimethoate (n=11), and 3.0 (2.7) and 871.7 (3.3) for those bottling the same dimethoate formulation (n=10).

    Air concentrations (mug/m3) ranged from 25.3 to 194.4 for dimethoate, from 0.2 to 1.3 for ETU, and from 139.9 to 949.0 for mancozeb.

    Urinary excretion of ETU and alkylphosphates showed a significant correlation with mancozeb (r2=971), and ETU (r2=858), and dimethoate (r2=955) contamination of the hands. (...)
