Abstract:

A study was made of the toxicity of isoalcohols with boiling ranges of 112-148 C and 138-175 C, higher alcohols with boiling ranges of 165-225 C three forms of melamine-formaldehyde resin based on the above substances, and also a melamineformaldehyde resin produced from a mixture of butanol and isoalcohols of fractions which boil at 112-148 C. The substances were found to cause narcosis and irritation of mucous membranes. The toxic effect is displayed to a greater extent by alcohols with fewer carbon atoms and lower boiling ranges.
