Styrene is a commercially important chemical widely used in the manufacture of synthetic rubber, resins, polyesters, and plastics. The highest levels of human exposure to styrene occurs in occupational settings, especially during the production of reinforced plastic products, which involve manual lay-up or spray-up operations. In these settings, absorption of styrene occurs mainly through inhalation and, to a minor extent, via skin contact. A variety of biological markers (biomarkers) have been… CONTINUE READING
