SummaryThere have been no reports in the literature to date describing human poisonings with carbon oxysulphide. The available data from the literature concerning animal experiments with this substance is reviewed, giving special attention to recent unpublished results of inhalation experiments carried out on animals by Hofmann and Oettel in the Institute of Industrial Hygiene and Pharmacology of the Badische Anilin- & Soda-Fabrik AG Ludwigshafen.Two industrial accidents (inhalation poisonings… Expand

Although the occupational risks presented by COS as a fumigant of bulk grain are significant, these are manageable by good occupational safety practices and consideration may need to be given to scrubbing of ventilated COS and its breakdown product hydrogen sulfide, at the completion of fumigation to minimise worker and bystander exposure.

Regulatory toxicology of alternative fumigants
Carbonyl sulfide (COS), ethyl formate (HCCh~Hs, EF) and carbon disulfide (C~) are potential alternative fumigants for the protection of stored grams. At present EF 1S used as a fumigant of driedExpand
