Abstract:

Tetranitromethane TNM is a new chemical compound widely used in industry. Based on experimental studies, the authors determined two parameters of its toxicity, upper and lower, and established the zone of toxic action, an important factor in establishing the maximum permissible concentration of a new chemical substance in the air of work places. They also tried to ascertain whether TNM can cause chronic poisoning by repeated exposure to low concentrations.
