A variety of test methods were used to study the gradation, bioaccumulation, and toxicity of nicotine. Studies included determination of the octanol-water partition coefficient, conversion to CO2 in soil and activated sludge, and evaluation of the effects on microbiological and algal inhibition as well as plant germination and root elongation.

n-Butyl mercaptan (n-BM) is used as a solvent and a chemical intermediate. Pregnant Charles River CD-1 mice and COBS CD rats were randomly assigned to a control group and to three n-BM-exposed groups of 25 rats and 25 mice each. The animals were exposed by whole-body inhalation to mean n-BM concentrations of 10, 68, or 152 ppm on a 6-hr daily exposure(More)
The 1998 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) re-registration eligibility decision (RED) for phosphine fumigants has generated much interest in defining safe levels of exposure for workers and worker bystanders. This report summarizes the pertinent literature on phosphine toxicity, including animal inhalation studies and(More)
Groups of 110 rats of each sex were exposed by whole-body inhalation to 0, 1000, 10,000 or 20,000 ppm (v/v) of hydrochlorofluorocarbon 142b (CFC 142b or 1-chloro-1, 1-difluoroethane) for 6 hr/day, 5 days/wk for 104 wk (ten rats from each group were killed after 52 wk) in a combined chronic toxicity and oncogenicity study. Concurrently, ten male rats per(More)
