Formic acid occurs in a variety of plants and fruits, mammalian tissues, and insect venoms. It is used industrially in preparing a variety of drugs, dyes, and chemicals; as a decalcifier; and in leather tanning. Formic acid also is an environmental contaminant of air and water and has been identified as the toxic intermediate (formate) in methanol poisoning. Two- and 13-week toxicity studies of formic acid were conducted in male and female F344/N rats and B6C3F1 mice by whole body inhalation… CONTINUE READING
