Experimental human exposure to n-Hexane. Study of the respiratory uptake and elimination, and of n-Hexane concentrations in peripheral venous blood.

Abstract

The respiratory uptake rate of n-hexane showed considerable differences in six healthy male persons, exposed at rest to 360 mg/m3 and 720 mg/m3 of n-hexane in inspired air and to 360 mg/m3 under different levels of physical exercise. These differences could partly be explained by a positive correlation with the amount of body fat. At rest also a strong… (More)
