International congress of toxicology. Rome (ITA), 1992/06/28.
Selected topics of public health importance in toxicology of organic solvents are reviewed.
Organic solvents are commonly used as mixtures rather than individual solvents, except for the case of degreasers.
Nevertheless, toxicity of mixtures remain mostly to be studied.
Among the solvents in general, toluene is apparently the most popular.
Narcotic effects are common with all solvents (independent of chemical structure) at high concentrations, and result in an increased incidence of various CNS-related subjective symptoms at concentrations in excess of current occupational exposure limits.
