Methyl isocyanate (CH3N=C=O) (MIC; CAS No. 624-83-9) is a common monoisocyanate that is widely used as a precursor in carbamate pesticide production (Bucher, 1987; ATSDR, 2002). Humans exposed to MIC occupationally or accidently may run an elevated risk of developing respiratory disorders including asthma-like allergy and inflammation, airway hyper responsiveness, reactive airway dysfunction syndrome (RADS) (HSFS,
